A lot of teachers in kindergarten and 1st grade ask for pencil grips. I am not an advocate of this because in kindergarten, kids can still use the strength that they have and learn to hold a pencil properly without providing them the cues or being dependent on pencil grips.
What do ya'll think?
Comments for When do we recommend pencil grips to teachers?
