Several of our students have trouble with their pencil grip. The most common issue I find at the moment is that they grasp the pencil too tightly.  When they have white knuckles they tire quickly, writing becomes less legible and they become frustrated easily.

Here are a few photos that show how the pencil should be held, with a little homemade device to assist.

Thanks to Sophia Caratti for allowing us to share these photos.
