This Term we have started to learn how to hold our pencils with the correct pencil grip. Having a good pencil grip in Kindergarten will help your child develop good pencil control. We start with tracing straight lines, then drawing lines from top to bottom, then left to write, moving onto more complex lines such as: wavy, circles, zig zag. This helps your child to get ready for writing their names and later words and sentences in Pre-Primary.
Here is a good link to an Occupational Therapy site on how to develop good pencil grip and control.
Connor is doing a great job at trying to draw a straight line in his writing book today.
