Last quote by Claire Heffron

These little gadgets should be called fidget tools, not toys, and they can be part of a successful strategy for managing fidgety behavior if they are introduced as a normal part of the classroom culture. Kids spend a lot of time sitting in class, and recesses are shorter than ever at 15 or 20 minutes. Developmentally this doesn't even come close to the amount of movement kids need in a day. We need to come up with strategies to meet it. Fidget tools are a profound piece of the discussion, but they are just the tip of the iceberg.feedback
