The Pencil Grip Review and GIVEAWAY

Do your students struggle with their pencil grip?  Hopefully, they have it all figured out by this time of year, but some may still be struggling.

Writing is very important to academic development.  I've noticed a lot of my students that struggle with their pencil grip also have poor handwriting.  An improper grip can not only lead to illegible writing, but can interrupt cognitive flow.  The Pencil Grip, Inc. is helping to correct the problem with their pencil grips.

 
The Pencil Grip sent me a set of three different grips to try out and review: The Pinch Grip, The Pencil Grip and The Crossover Grip.  They are allowing me to giveaway two sets of each of these... so there will be two winners.  Each winner will receive 1 set of three grips to try.

When The Pencil Grip first contacted me to do the review, I was a little skeptical.  I have tried grips in the past that my students did not like because they were too rigid.

I am really impressed with how comfortable the grips are.
 
Here is an overview of the grips:
The Pinch Grip:
 
The Pinch Grip provides proper positioning while enhancing comfort and control.
 
The Pencil Grip:
 
The Pencil Grip trains children to use a tripod grasp, and prevents bad habits from forming.
 
The Crossover Grip:
 
The Crossover Grip is designed to prevent fingers from crossing over.
 
I tried the grips out with my Sunday School class and they were really excited when it was time to write.  My students said the grips were so comfortable and I even noticed that their hands didn't get tired as easily.  They also liked the different colors of the grips.
 
What I love about the grips is the fact that they are very affordable.  If you would like to purchase some for yourself or your class, check them out on Amazon.
 
Now for the fun part!  If you would like to win a set of 3 Grips enter the Rafflecopter below.  There are several different ways to enter.  Remember, the more times you enter, the better your chances of winning!  Good luck!
