Product Description
Are you sick of reminding students to correct their pencil grip?

This little package provides a hands on and fun way for students to remember the correct pencil grip.

To introduce the idea I paint the thumb and forefinger and the front of the hand green. I then paint the next finger brown. Once it is dry I draw a little smiley face on the green to make it a frog. We then have fun hopping our frogs around and playing with them. Then we pick up a pencil and discuss how the frog holds the pencil with his two hands (legs?) and balances on the log so he can write neatly.

I then give the children a colouring in page of a frog on the log (showing correct grip) and take photos of children using the correct grip I then use those photos to display around the cartoon of the frog on the log to create a visual reminder of the correct grip.

I find that painting the children's hands helps them to remember the correct way to hold the pencil, even when the paint is gone. Once they get used to the idea you simply need to say "Is your frog on the log?" when you see an incorrect pencil grip and they should be able to correct their grip.

This pack includes a description of how I introduced the idea with examples of how I painted their hands, coloured posters with a few different backgrounds and black and white pictures for colouring.

I hope you find it as helpful as I have!
