A fidget is an effective intervention for students who struggle to focus in class. Everything distracts them. They cannot sit still. Fidgets are an age-old strategy to help these children. Basically, it’s something to handle to keep their fingers busy. If used correctly, it can help calm the child and if calm, the child can focus and LEARN.
This product contains a story that can help introduce the idea of a fidget to a child. It helps set some rules and talks about how the main character uses his fidget. It comes in a variety of sizes so you can print the one that you like best.
The book shows a Koosh Ball as the fidget. But you may use anything that works to help your child calm. In fact, included in this product is a PENCIL TOPPER and WRIST BAND that can be used as a fidget.
ALSO INCLUDED IS A TOOL TO CREATE YOUR OWN 4 PAGE LITTLE BOOK. You may edit and add your own pictures. Pictures of the child and of his/her fidget will make your book something to treasure. Send a copy home to involve parents.
The BOOKMARKS are just a fun reminder of the topic.
