Weigh Down that Pencil

What you will need:

Benefits of a Pencil Weight:

There is a definite advantage to weighing a child’s pencil:
1- the additional weight pulls the pencil down into the webspace (space between the thumb and index finger) which is where we want the pencil to rest.
2-heavier pencils slow down a child that writes too quickly
3- the additional weight of the pencil is great for children with poor awareness of their hands/fingers (seen very often with children with autism)

How to use the weight:

Place one of the plastic rings on the pencil, slide in the weight and keep it in place with a second plastic ring
