Ah, sad....about a week ago I broke my arm....right one ... and I am right handed. Am in a splint and doing what I can with my left hand. My husband has volunteered to help me come set up my room. Thank heavens I had already spent a few days moving in and only had some heavier stuff left to do before tackling bulletin boards.

I am more fearful of trying to teach children to write and hold a pair of scissors when I don't have full abilities with that hand. I also cannot tie my own shoes, much less the children's. Does anyone have any reasonable suggestions?

Typing almost one-handed, btw. Excuse typos, please.
