Are Fidget Spinners a Blessing or a Curse? Here's What Some Schools Are Saying! by Kim Kusiciel
If you don't have young children or if this craze hasn't hit your town yet, you may not have heard of a fidget spinner. They are a three-pronged spinning toy that, when held between two fingers, will spin and spin and spin. These toys are the latest trend to hit classrooms. They are a wonderful tool for children with special needs because it helps them stay calm and focused in class. However, for the children that do not need them, they are a nuisance.
When used as a toy, these are often a distraction in the classroom. Teachers are sending notes home banning them from class. Some districts are even writing policies preventing the use of them except for the children whose 504 plan (read Pepi Silverman's tip about it here) or IEP states the need for them. I say, keep the toy at home and tool at school.
