  • I like this poster but I think the children should be facing the other way so the right and is on the right and the left hand is on the left

    • Hi Lynda,
      Thank you for your comment and suggestion.
      To avoid any confusion, we have updated the poster by removing the “right” and “left” speech bubbles.
      We hope your students find this poster helpful when learning the difference between left and right.
      Kind regards,

  • Maybe having a link on u-tube with music will make this song easier? Thank you.
