Seating position and pencil grip

 

Pen and Pencil hold

 

 

  • The pencil should be held between the second finger and the thumb. The first finger should rest lightly on the pencil.

  • The barrel of the pencil should rest against the knuckle at the base of the first finger, pointing outwards above the elbow.

  • The pencil should be held about two centimetres from the paper - a little higher for left-handers.

  • The side of the forearm and the third and little fingers should lightly touch the paper.

 

Body position 

 

  • Lean forward a little but do not lean on the desk

     

  • Do not lean sideways or twist the body

     

  • The head should not be too near the paper

     

  • The feet should be on the floor

     

  • The elbows should be near the edge of the desk and the arms should be spread out away from the body

     

  • Do not sit stiffly. A comfortable position is necessary so that the hand and arm can move freely
