Fidget Spinners in the Classroom (with a FREE Download)

Fidget spinners in the classroom? 

Eek! Does that question make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up? Allowing fidget spinners or fidget cubes in your classroom sounds like a nightmare! BUT what if I told you that I have a resource that will help you start the year off on the right foot with fidget spinners in the classroom!

To summarize my video below, I do three things that help me manage fidget spinners in the classroom.

1. The first thing that I do is start the year off with clear guidelines and expectations. I love giving all of the students the opportunity to have a fidget spinner during the school year because I mean, come one...they really are addicting to play with! The first thing that I do is lay the ground rules and talk with the students. We have 5 fidget spinner guidelines that we use.

Using fidget spinners in the classroom can be a nightmare for teachers, but with this FREEBIE you'll have a great starting point to keep them used responsibly. Ask your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th grade classroom or home school students to sign this contract. Plus use the FREE download on the first day of school to get students engaged. They'll love having such a fun back to school activity that allows them to use their fidget spinners and fidget blocks. Grab your FREE downloads today!

2. After we have all talked as a group about what the expectations are, I require that each student sign a fidget spinner contract. They sign it with the understanding that if they don't follow the classroom guidelines, that their fidget spinner privilege could be taken away.

3. Once we've gone over all the 'serious' stuff, I start the year off by playing a fun 'gettin to know ya' game using the students' fidget spinners. The students use their fidget spinner as an arrow, spin their spinner, and then ask a fellow classmate/friend the question. They record their classmates answer on the response sheet and continue the activity until all of the responses are complete.
