An incorrect pencil grip can negatively affect your child's academic life and fine motor skills. That's why, if your child has started to draw and/or write, you should teach the correct grip promptly, so they don't have a chance of learning bad pencil gripping habits. For a few ways on how you can achieve this, continue reading.

How to Teach a Child to Hold a Pencil Correctly

  1. First of all, let them know of the tripod grip, which is the correct way to hold a pencil (with the index finger, middle finger, and thumb).
  2. If your child has trouble placing their fingers correctly, a pencil grip aid may be just what they need. It can make them feel much more comfortable during the first stages of this learning process.
  3. Children often grip pencils with their whole hand and form a fist with the pencil inside it. To help them avoid this practice, provide shorter pencils that won't give them enough space to do that.
  4. If your child is becoming set in their ways with a poor pencil grip, you will have to correct them each time you see them use it. It may be tiring, but it can be the only way to help them learn.
  5. Lastly, make sure they have enough practice. The more they hold their pencil correctly, the more natural it will seem to them. Before they know it, that will be their preferred gripping method.
