Fidget Spinners


 Hola Readers,

I am sure you have already asked yourself if the ‘fidget spinner” could help your child to focus at school. I have asked myself this same question and wondered if I was doing the right thing every time I asked a student to put their fidget spinner away…


As I am concluding my Masters in Elementary Education, I have researched about this topic to support a few of my assignments for my Program. Recently, I came across a great article written by a professor-researcher with the University of Alberta that discusses the polemic use of a fidget spinner for children’s attention/focus support.

It is worth it!



Thank you for your time,

Sra. Sasse J
