Teacher Tuesday….Making It Simple…Pencil Grasp 101

Sometimes when we are trying to find a solution to a problem, or teach a new concept, we forget to step back and simplify.  The following idea came from a kindergarten teacher in Cleveland, Ga.

When trying to encourage the correct pencil grasp, have the pencil laying on the table.  Ask the student to pick up the pencil by pinching it between their fingers.  Then make sure the tip is sticking out between the thumb and pointer.
