The Tripod Pencil Grasp: This pencil grip is the one that is most recommended by schools. The pencil should be positioned so that there is equal pressure between the thumb, the side of the middle finger and the tip of the index finger. All fingers are bent slightly.When a pencil is held correctly, the thumb and forefinger form an oval when a child holds the pencil. Tension in the hand or fingers indicates weak fine motor skills. You can improve your childs fine motor skills through various writing activities or through other fun activities which involve movement of fingers (like playing with play dough).
Standard wooden alphabet blocks naturally appeal to children. Wood that has been sanded and polished feels good to the touch. Their symmetrical shape is naturally pleasing. Blocks allow cognitive and intellectual development for children. Blocks help children develop a concrete understanding of the world around them. They will learn about sizes, shapes, numbers, orders, area, length, patterns, and weight as they build with and put away the blocks. Blocks also help children to think abstractly. Children form mental pictures as they interact with the world around them. When they play with blocks, they can recreate these pictures in concrete form.
