Holding a Pencil is the first workbook in the How to Teach Your Child to Write Well guide for people who wish to teach, learn or re-learn cursive writing.
This workbook holds the key to understanding the importance of laterality in learning how to hold a pencil and basic techniques to help the child learn the right actions and posture to make it easier to write.
Identifying the child’s dominant hand, teaching the child about each finger, choosing the right pencil, placing the paper properly in front of the child… A series of simple, easy exercises teaches both right- and left-handed children how to hold a pencil properly.
By the end of these exercises, the child will be ready to start learning good writing habits (Workbook 2 – Before Writing the Alphabet) before beginning to make the letters (Workbook 3 – Writing the Alphabet).
