How to hold a pencil

First, pick up a pencil…

Look at how you are holding it.

Compare your grip to the photo. Does it match? You should only see two fingers  on top.

Congratulations if you got it right. Poor pencil grips are threatening to take over the world, trust me.


Here’s a little rhyme that I use with my class to help them remember how 🙂

“First your pointer. Then your thumb.

Give a little squeeze.

Hide the other underneath and

writing is a breeze!”
