    Do you have any ideas for kids who need help with pencil grip? I teach kindergarten and I have a student who needs OT.

    Milia, A week or so ago I got the wonderful Gingerbread and Gumdrop literacy + math centers set. Unfortunately, I somehow did not get the QRST page printed. I was hoping I could get it so the kids could use the complete set. I’m hoping that’s a possibility.
