One of the greatest challenges that Junior Infants face is mastering pencil grip. We spend a lot of time working on pencil grip throughout the year but particularly during the first term of school.
Children are encouraged to use their "froggy grip" when holding their pencil.
Using a butterfly clip can be very helpful for children who are struggling to adapt to the froggy/tripod grip.
Fine motor activities can really benefit your child's pencil grip by strengthening small hand muscles. The children really enjoy them too. Using the scissors is another excellent activity that can help improve muscle strength in the hand.
The following two articles offer fun fine motor activities that you can do at home with your child and other methods to help improve pencil grip.
Hope they are helpful!
