My son is 3 years and 5 months old. He is in Junior KG now. He is good in studies, does colors well and his hand writing is also good but he is not holding pencil properly and i think that makes his writing speed slow. Is it fine or not? If not then how to teach him to hold pencil properly?

Please make him hold shorter pencils as they are easier to hold. Do give training in using the motor skills like holding a bead/ ball/ holding things using the thumb and index finger. I understand your worry. Please read this blog for 8 handy tips. All the best and do keep us posted.
