What is the correct dynamic tripod grip?

The tripod grip uses three fingers: the thumb, index and middle finger. This is a functional grasp which is essential for holding a pencil as well as other activities like fastening buttons. Get the essential FREE Handwriting Tips Guide here now!

How to encourage tripod grip?

Before practising, it is important children use a shorter pencil as it means they can’t squeeze on unnecessary fingers. Our pencils have been specifically designed to be the right length for control and balance, with a wider diameter and hexagonal shape to encourage the correct tripod grip. Parents can try using the ‘pinch and flip’ method: simply lay the pencil with the point facing the child’s hand, when they pick it up just above the pencil’s point, the pencil will rest in the skin between their thumb and index finger in the correct tripod position. Use a variety of writing activities to make writing fun as children will be more likely to practice. Our books include sections which show how to use the tripod grip, designed with a variety of fun activities to keep children engaged.

Are your products left handed friendly?

Yes, all Love Writing Co. handwriting resources are right and left-handed friendly. Our pencils contain a softer core (2B) so the pencil moves smoothly across the page and reduces writing pressure which is important for left-handed children. Our workbooks are also ring binded and lay-flat and will help your child learn to write in comfort. Get your essential FREE Left-Handed Handwriting Tips Guide here now!
