The Claw

Before we get started in Bookville, can I just post this one little gem?  M has handwriting issues.  Actually, they both have handwriting issues; M has grip issues.  Big time.  We've been working on this for 3 years now, and I can't break the thumb-wrap-around habit no matter how many weird pencils, triangular grippers, spongy-thingies I bought.  Then, thanks to my peeps on the WTM boards, I found The Writing Claw.

It looks crazy, I know.  But I am here to tell you that 2 days with the claw and we're in business.  M can hold her pencil without the thumb-wrap on her own now.  We'll still use the claw for a while, just to make sure the habit gets cemented in, but I have a feeling we won't have to rely on it for long.
