My ds is in Kindergarten. Today he came home upset. His teacher yelled at him because he doesn't put a space between his words. This is a child who, in k, is independently reading, writing sentences and using simple punctuation, all at a level far above the expected proficiency. For this teacher to berate him for something so small really angers me.
The problem is that she is telling him to use two fingers to space the words and he is a lefty, so when he puts down his right fingers, he can't write over his hand. I am sure he is perfectly capable of leaving a space without fingers, but he is all caught up in the spelling and forming sentences and he just can't grasp it. Are there any tricks to help my lefty?
