L is for Left

This is a fantastic way to help young students learn to hold and use a mouse! I wish I had done it a long time ago. I instruct children to grasp the sides of the mouse with their thumb on the left and their other fingers on the right...then to slip their pointing finger over onto the "L". I have noticed a huge difference in their ability to focus on clicking the left side of the mouse. I used a gold paint pen which dries within seconds.
