Childhood Story | Hold the Horses Erkk.. The Pencils!

Teacher Sal (my Novice class teacher) complained to my mom few months ago that I was not able to hold a pencil.

What? Me can’t hold a pencil?

Mommy was indeed surprised.

Because I definitely can hold a pencil to draw lines and color at home.

Mommy didn’t ask further as she was in a hurry that day.

However, she believes the teacher was telling about me not able to use my right hand to hold a pencil.

Of course! I am left-handed person. I love using my left hand more!

Perhaps my way of holding a pencil is not yet perfect. I might not yet master the tripod grip of holding a pencil.

The Tripod Grip – 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. This is called a “tripod grip” or “tripod pencil grasp”.

But… I definitely can hold a pencil.
