I have several students in my classroom who have struggled with their pencil grip all year. I have used tons of different grips with them this year before I finally found some grips that actually work! Have you heard of the new Pencil grips from The Pencil Grip, Inc?
I had the honor of testing out a few of their new products in my classroom with my kiddos. After two weeks of use the letter formation was no longer loose and letters were not floating off the page as much. Just imagine the gains they could have been making if I had these grips at the beginning of the year.
My favorite grips are the Crossover Grip and the Pinch Grip. The Pinch grip allows the fingers and hand to rest in the proper position while giving even more control. The Crossover grip has everything the Pinch Grip offers but also includes these little wings that stabilize students’ little fingers and keep them from overlapping each other. This company also has a 3 step training kit.
This kit includes the stage 1 Crossover Grip, stage 2 Pinch Grip, and stage 3 Pencil Grip. The kit allows students to gradually learn how to hold a pencil and improve their handwriting. I also want to add that ALL of the grips are made out of a very soft material that won’t cause indentions or blisters on those sweet little hands.
I have been given permission by this company to host a giveaway featuring their awesome pencil grips. The giveaway prize will include the above mentioned family of grips along with a User’s Guide.
