Pencil Gripping

Do you have students who can't quite grip their pencils correctly? Using colorful pom poms can solve the problem! You can purchase an assorted bag at any craft store. They come in different sizes and colors. I like to have a wide variety of colors available so my students can choose their favorite one. Have your students hold the pom pom in the palm of their hand using their pinky and ring finger.  The rest of the fingers will naturally hold the pencil correctly. Do this every time they write and the pencil grip becomes a habit.  Eventually, your kids can wean themselves off the pom pom. Such an easy way to solve this problem!
