August 13: Left Hander’s Day

Yes, there is a special day for lefthanders. Approximately 10% of the population is left-handed. Check in your program. How many of the kids are left-handed? Is it about 10%?

Do you know (or they) know who the famous left-hander is pictured below?

President Barack Obama! Five of the last seven presidents have been left-handed. They are Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama.

Ask the kids if they can identify some other famous lefthanders. Check this site for more famous lefties.

You can also ask kids to try writing or drawing with their opposite hand today. How easy or difficult is it?

Check out the full August calendar. It includes floating holidays, specialty weeks, and specialty months.
