Believe it or not, how your child holds their pencil when they write, draw, and color, can make a difference in their life. For example, it can affect their fine-motor skills! That's why it's imperative that you teach them the correct pencil grip. To learn tips on the matter, keep reading.

How to Teach a Child to Hold a Pencil Correctly

  1. Needless to say, your child should first be familiarized with the tripod grip, which is commonly regarded as the correct way to hold the pencil. Basically, your child should hold the tools with their thumb, middle, and index fingers.
  2. Since your child is still developing their fine-motor skills, they may need a pencil grip aid to coordinate their fingers. Provide some in fun colors, so they're eager to use them.
  3. It's not unusual for children to use their whole hand to grip their writing tools. To keep them from doing that, you can simply provide a shorter pencil that won't give them enough space to do that.
  4. If your child has gotten used to an incorrect gripping method, you will need to correct them every time you see them use it, until they feel comfortable with the appropriate pencil grip.
  5. Lastly, you should make sure your child practices the correct way to hold a pencil. That' why you should give them colors and a coloring book, or pencils and a notebook.
