Fidget spinners are the biggest craze in everywhere, not just in schools. Teachers must have had more than enough of them with children they teach having them, their own children having them and even themselves being convinced into having one. They are now the one thing that teachers must hate more than students disrupting the class, Untucked shirts and those messy assignment sheets. Some students are only using fidget spinners as toys and are not listening to the teachers and not doing their because their attention is so greatly placed on the spinner spinning for up to 4 minutes. For other student’s the spinner are a great benefit because they are still listening to teachers and doing their work but the one thing that teachers still don’t like is the noise, which is an irritation buzzing sound.
Fidgets are a great way to keep children calm and collected, but in order for them to work, there needs to be expectations. For me as an adult, I can get a little antsy if I sit for a long period of time to what do I do? I just grab my phone out and mess around on it. In a school setting that cannot happen. Some different alternatives could be a stress ball, fidget cube, bag of marbles, or tangles, etc. Some expectations for the fidgets can be: keep it somewhere where it won’t be a distraction, use it nicely and properly, and if it gets in the way of work, then it gets taken away. If expectations get set, fidgets can be a great way to keep your student focused and not get over stimulated while getting their work done.
One ¼ inch diameter red rod with slots at either end, one unfinished ⅔ inch wooden spool with 8 holes around the side and one ¼ inch hole in the center, and a ⅔ inch plastic orange connecting rod. The plastic piece was newer than the wooden pieces. The red rod fit into all the holes in the wooden spool, as well as the ends of the short, plastic connector piece. The possibility of fitting the pieces together in numerous configurations leads one to believe this is an open-ended construction toy. Tinker Toys were developed in the progressive era. In a time of industry and invention, Tinker Toys nourished children’s creative drive.

I know for a fact those popsicle sticks give students anxiety because for experience it gave me really bad anxiety and it still does. Making it a situational anxiety as mentioned in chapter four in the Dannels book. Situational anxiety is the feeling that you are the center of attention and no one wants to be the center of attention if you do not know the answer to the question that is being asked. Some of my teachers still use the popsicle sticks in some of my Libs classes and I just sit there freaking out most of the time. That goes for my classmates we all tell each other how much we hate those sticks. It was a good move by Mrs. Waston whispering to her students quietly reducing some anxiety. She had a lot of strategies that she used in

It is very distracting and all of the students end up missing the whole point of what the teacher is saying.

Fidget spinners were originally developed as a way for children with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or autism to relieve stress. This is a good reason fidget spinners should be allowed in school.

Last of all, I believe that we should keep Fidget Spinners because they benefit all different types of students in various different ways in the classroom. For example, Fidget Spinners allow the user to focus or pay attention better so, that the student is not focusing on moving or fidgeting around. It also, helps to occupy the child in various ways while still being able to learn without distraction. Finally, I’ve tried Fidget Spinners every once in awhile and I have found them to be surprisingly helpful. I was calm all of a sudden, even just after a couple of spins I just felt so relieved of all of the stress and anxiety.
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (“ADHD”) is a common childhood disorder that represents developmentally inappropriate levels of inattention, impulsivity and overactivity. It occurs in 3% to 5% of the school age population as stated by (Craighead, Craighead, Kazdin & Mahoney, 1994). Another author (Barkley, 1981) stated that ADHD occurs in at least one child in every classroom. As a result of these statistics, ADHD has become one of the most commonly referred and heavily studied psychological disorders of childhood. Studies show that about 50-60% of children with ADHD in the age range of five to seven years are hostile and defiant. By the
Excessive levels of hyperactivity and inattention can be extremely impairing for both the afflicted child and their caretakers. Children with ADHD can experience problems with cogni-tion, poor academic achievement, troubled peer relationships, and heightened household conflict (Barkley, 1997; Loe 2007; Bagwell, 2001; Harpen, 2005). These children often present with in-creased aggression that can result in a comorbid diagnosis of conduct disorder or other disruptive behavioral disorders (Jensen, 1997). The heterogeneous symptoms of this disorder can make se-lecting a treatment course particularly challenging. While prescribing stimulant medication has become the golden standard for dealing with an attentional system gone awry, there is growing concern over the use of pharmacological interventions for children since the side effects of such use during this period of development may not yet be fully understood. Additionally these drugs do not directly curtail aggressive and defiant behavior that many of these children display but they may improve a child’s ability to benefit from other psychosocial interventions.
“ CBS News suggest that parents choose toys for their toddlers and preschoolers that teach skills because a young child’s brain will grab hold of these permanent marks and carry through with them all the way to adulthood.” (Halter) These playthings not only teach skills, but confidence, because they learn to enjoy accomplishing any task they face. Many say educational toys are the best way to go because it stimulate tools a child will use throughout their schooling.
