# Left and Right

Left and Right is a concept that everyone needs to grasp, but it’s a hard one for little kids. (It may take more than one grade level of practice.) This section provides some great resources that are sure to help reinforce which is which. One handy tip – if you hold your left hand with the four fingers pointing up and the thumb pointing straight out, it makes an “L”! That’s the left hand. The other hand is the right hand. Answer sheets or directions included.
