A pen neither too big nor too small
The pencil is ideal for beginners.
To start learning to write, a pencil is the most suitable. It is erasable and does not bleed! I recommend favoring triangular pencils with a good lead quality. Some mechanical pencils are also very well designed and will help you better manage the pressure you exert on the sheet.
Abandon the 4-color bic pen
This pen like many other ballpoint pens requires you to hold them vertically and apply strong pressure so that the ink can flow. In addition, its size causes poor grip. Prefertriangular shaped ballpoint pens that have a good glide like the Papermate Inkjoy Ballpoint and Schneider Slider Edge XB.
Are you left-handed?
Some pens are more ergonomic for left-handed people and promote good grip and better comfort. Do not neglect them.
Adapt the choice according to your writing experience
- Thus, children in primary school appreciate fine felt-tip pens (if the exerted pressure is mastered) or rollers. They offer good glide and some erase like fountain pens.
I do not recommend friction pens, their ink flow is not regular and varies according to their inclination.
With a little more experience, the fountain pen exhibits exceptional glide if properly chosen and used. Writing with a fountain pen requires learning and support, especially for children.
