How to hold a pen, pencil or crayon

Natalie has learned how to properly hold a pen, pencil or crayon! Watch her drawing with a pen at home. By the way, the red knapsack is her very FIRST art work from her K1 class. Isn't it beautiful? She doesn't have much concentration when it comes to colouring tho... she gets bored and stops halfway and the teacher had to help her finish it.

"Look Mommy, I'm drawing letters!" Natalie says. She points out all the letters she's drawing with the pen.

Look at the great pen-holding technique!

Natalie concentrating while continuing to draw "letters" on her paper.

  1. Great technique and colouring skills Nat! You need to teach Olivia.

    Olivia's red backpack has come back from school with nothing so far, not even that orange report book. She also replies "nothing" when I ask her what she did at school...I totally feel out of the loop!
