I’ve previously blogged about the importance of choosing the right implement for your child when learning to write.
Specifically a child needs to feel comfortable when holding a pen or pencil, or they can easily be put off using it.
What did I like about them?
- They are ergonomically designed for left and right handers. (I.e there are different pens and pencils for right and left handed people)
- They have an inbuilt (comfortable) grip area on the pen and pencil to help children learn where to place their fingers and thumbs when learning to write.
- The pens are fun! They are colourful and appeal to children.
- Importantly they don’t look like ‘special’ pens for children who may be struggling to hold a pen properly, so children And teens don’t feel self conscious using them. In fact, it’s quite the opposite- I think these pens/pencils are MORE appealing to kids than many other pens and pencils.
