This clever device does a number of things, all at one time to help maintain proper position of pencil in hand. To use: place the large loop around wrist, so that charm hangs straight down. Now hold charm into palm using ring and little fingers, then grasp pencil and place other loop around upper end of pencil. The pull or tension created helps keep the pencil at an appropriate angle in the web space. Many children respond favorably to this pull saying, they like the feel in their hand. The friendly plastic charm, facilitates isolation of the two sides of the hand by keeping the ulnar side closed. Recommended for use with implements a minimum length of 5 inches. 2 themes to choose from or leave it up to us!
It works09/20/2016 ByAnna This actually works well. Many of my students want to put too many fingers on the pencil. This gives them something else to focus upon (the little charm) instead of their fingers. I just wish I had thought of it!
