Fidgets in the Classroom

I'm learned over the years that I'm kind of a control freak, but more importantly, I want my students to be successful.  

Fidgets are a great way for students to receive sensory input in a way that doesn't distract others.  I have found that it is very helpful to go over the rules and expectations for fidgets.  You can download my free fidget rules chart here!

The important thing about using fidgets in the classroom is to use them in a way that is helpful to the student and not distracting to everyone else. 
The great thing about fidgets are all the different tactile options.  My favorite fidget is a pink squishy ball, that feels soft, but you have to work to squeeze it.  Some of my students like fidgets they can squeeze and stretch, while others like ones they can twist and wrap around their fingers.  

My principal has purchased fidgets for our classrooms from the Therapy Shop. Below are my two favorite fidgets from them!   I've also had really good luck at Target...especially in their dollar spot!
