Starting School

“Getting match-fit for all those written exams” ..Yet another expert advising young people and their parents…. but besides making the students fitter it could have a side effect of the work being their own and not the result of a bought essay or group sessions – as I have heard of in some universities.
However it should start at the first day of Kindergarten when the children are given pencils – show them how to hold the pencil correctly – not grasp it like… I don’t know what… not a sword, knife, bludgeon anything but the way I see on TV. There seems to be no flexibility, no movement from two fingers and the wrist, with the awkward grasp I see now. Held properly it would make for an easier way to write and would make the student more “match-fit” than the present way.
