I am a leftie as are 2 of my 3 children. When we did finger spacing we put the fingers next to the word, put the pencil where the next word would begin, but remove fingers from paper before beginning to write. Does that make sense? It's kind of hard to explain in word.

One kid is a righty and no issues with this - the other is a lefty and had a hard time because his right hand got in the way of his left hand when writing the next word. I tried having him place a pencil right next to the previous word - but that too hindered his hand/pencil positioning! Any tips from moms who have lefties?
