The little research i did- there is a mixed opinion - professional about Spinners.
Do they help kids focus.
I think they look cool, mesmerizing - colorful and I've seen glass artists are creating them now also. PIN had many DIY FYI on them. Easy & difficult.
My opinion.. spinner s have been around a long time, spinning meditation rings.
Spinning prayer wheels (I have one on my desk) and is doodling not a type of spinning?
Kids have been doing it in class for -ever.
Spinners, it is my personal opinion after all I have ready - they would be quite the distraction and what happened to trying to focus old fashioned ways? creative ways. Spinning is just watching... I GET it. I don't agree with it. I did see this on PIN while searching spinners and thought it was really cute and highly true:
Before pills - always.
With all that is happening in the world, talks of bombs daily, Trump antics, stuff (terrible things) no wonder they are spinning.
FIRST I'd suggest gently ;) pen & paper.. I bet there are so many little creative artists trying to get out. TLC before anything, of course.
You all know I'm a huge fan of reading! Reading was must when Storm was a baby and I promised him when tiny- 'I'll buy you any book as long as you promise to read it- then I'll buy another.' His first big book - 'Megladon' - a giant shark. ;)
In elementary school he was reading 3 grades above the rest in his class.
They called me one day to tell me this. I was pleased. ;)
