I am an elementary school teacher. It is difficult to take care of my family when I am busy with work. Fortunately, my mother-in-law takes care of my son so that I can devote myself to teaching.

During the lunch break, I am used to going to the bookstore. Whenever I see a book I like, I will buy it home and savor it. On the left side of the bookstore is the student stationery area. Occasionally I will check it out and buy some related school supplies.

Once I was wandering in the stationery area and was about to buy a fountain pen to practice calligraphy. I met a student’s parent. She enthusiastically greeted me: “Hello Miss Yu, are you here to buy stationery too?”

After I expressed my intention, she went on to say: “I want to buy pencils for my children, but there are too many varieties, and I don’t know which one is suitable. My husband asked me to buy high-priced pencils. He said that children must buy good student pencils for writing! I just ran into you today, what kind of pencil do you think is good?”

This parent was entangled in buying pencils for his children and did not know how to choose. It can be seen that this parent attached great importance to children’s learning. Choosing pencils for children is actually very simple. The price is not the main factor. You can buy pencils if you meet the following three conditions.

Primary school students writing, choosing a pencil is very important, only if these three conditions are met

1\ Choose the HB pencil

Children usually choose the “HB” model when writing, so what does “HB” mean?

First of all, “H” represents the hardness of the pencil, “B” represents the blackness of writing, and “HB” represents the hardness and blackness of this kind of pencil, which is very suitable for children to write.

Of course, there are many varieties of pencils. The pencils are arranged in order from soft to hard: 9B, 8B, 7B, 6B, 5B, 4B, 3B, 2B, B, HB, F, H, 2H, 3H, 4H, 5H, 6H, 7H, 8H, 9H, 10H, and other hardness grades.

The larger the number in front of H, the harder the lead and the lighter the color. The larger the number in front of B, the softer the lead and the darker the color.

Among them, HB pencils are suitable for writing, while H pencil cores are soft and dark in color suitable for drawing. Elementary school students are recommended to use HB pencils for writing.

2\ choose a hexagonal pencil

At present, there are many shapes of pencils on the market, including triangles, hexagons, circles, etc. The hexagonal pencil has six sides, which is very convenient for children to hold. At the same time, the hexagonal pencil is not easy to roll off when placed on the table. It is recommended that elementary school students use hexagonal pencils.

3\ choose the natural wood pencil, single-color, and environmentally friendly pencil

There are many types of pencils. When choosing pencils for their children, parents try to choose environmental paint wood pencils with single colors. It is best that the natural wooden pencil is healthier. Even if the child has the bad habit of biting the pencil, don’t worry too much. Of course, parents should help the child to get rid of the bad habit of biting the pencil in time.

In addition, try not to choose colorful and patterned pencil appearance colors. Because colorful and patterned pencils are easy to distract children, it is not conducive to cultivating children’s concentration on learning.

In addition to choosing the right pencil for the child, good writing posture is also very important. Before writing, the child should pay attention to adjusting the sitting posture and the distance between the eyes and the book. Poor sitting posture, lying on the stomach or too far away when writing will affect the child’s vision. Parents should pay attention to this point.
