PERSUASIVE WRITING: FIDGET SPINNERS

A fidget spinner is a type of stress-relieving toy that is meant to help people who have trouble focusing or fidgeting by acting as a release mechanism for nervous energy or stress. Fidget spinners became a popular toy in 2017, and it has often been criticized as a distraction and a nuisance by teachers and parents. In fact, fidget spinning has even been banned in many schools!

Use the popularity of this craze in your classroom with this fun persuasive writing lesson and writing assignment. Students will absolutely love attempting to convince teachers and parents of the benefits and merits of using a fidget spinner. Or, if they are frustrated by the practice, it will be their opportunity to convince their peers to put a stop to this annoying activity.
