    Getting Ready to Write.... 

          

The children will be practising how to hold their pencil correctly. We describe it as:

'Fred the frog, sits on the log.'

This describes the frog legs which pinch (pincer) the pencil and the log is the middle finger which the pencil balances on. Try using this little reminder to help them at home too.

 

 

Try this little trick at home to help with pencil grip. Place a pom pom in your child's hand and get them to grip it with their two fingers - whilst holding their pencil!
