Many times, your students with ADHD or sensory disorders can multitask, or have something in their hands, to promote focus, attention, calming, and active listening. Fidgets, when used appropriately, are an excellent way to help students self-regulate in the classroom.
Get a Wiggle On
We have all been there…trying to get students to develop one-to-one correspondence with concrete objects.

Summer is flying by isn’t it? I got back from a great presentation run in Abington, Virginia then went to Las Vegas for 5 days for SDE’s I Teach K Conference then finished the week out in Chicago for the SDE PK-1 CCSS Academy. I met some extraordinary teachers who are truly inspirational, which is a constant reminder to me of why I love what I do!
