The Stetro 6 pack is ideal for parents who would like to place one of the grips on each colour (you will probably need to buy two packs) or if they have a child who seems to frequently be losing their possessions – a feature of many of the children who attend OT! Many parents ask about stetro pencil grip instructions – how does this thing work?!
You place the grip on the pencil with the arrow (use a magnifying glass to find it!) pointing towards the tip of the pencil. It mustn’t be so close to the tip that it occludes the child’s vision while they are writing. It also mustn’t be so far up that pencil control is compromises. Lefties always need to have it slightly higher up so they can see the point of the pencil. Lefties place their index finger on the star, while right handed children place their thumb on the star. I hope that helps with stetro pencil grip instructions!
If this is the grip for you, I would suggest you get two packs so you have one for each of the colours of your child’s writing implements. Take a look at the 24 Pack for your classroom or therapy centre.
We make use of the Stetro Pencil Grip during the Muscle Mania classroom programme presented to our Grade R learners. At the beginning of the programme all our Twisties and pencils we use have a Stetro Pencil Grip on them. This pencil grip is used to teach our children where to correctly place their fingers in order to attain an adequate three-point pencil grip. We aim for a grip with the thumb and index fingers opposing each other on the pencil shaft, and the middle finger supporting underneath the pencil. To help our children to remember where to place their fingers, we sing a song every time they start drawing or writing. What we love about the song is that later on in the year, we only have to initiate the first line of the song and our children will happily continue singing the song while working. The majority of our children will check their grips and assume the correct pencil grip while singing the song. The song, together with the Stetro Pencil Grip assists typically developing children with the adequate knowledge and motor pathways to assume and maintain an adequate three-point pencil grip.
