In Steiner education the triangular grip pencil introduces the pencil grip to the child. It encourages holding the pencil in a relaxed and correct manner. This is important at the stage they begin to formally learn to write. Its thick rounded triangular shaft is designed to help the child develop the perfect pencil grip.
In summary the exploration and introduction of writing and drawing to the child follows the developmental readiness of the child:
First the Stockmar Block Crayons are used to explore colour and form on paper
Next the Stockmar Stick Crayons are introduced to add more direction to the form
Followed by the Triangular Pencil when the child begins to learn to write with its thick rounded triangular shaft designed to develop the perfect pencil grip
Then the Hexagonal Pencil which is an artist quality pencil suitable for children and adults
And finally the Fountain Pen for the speed and pure flow of clear precise writing skills.
