Is there a place for sensory toys in the classroom?

Share your thoughts and opinions about this week's story using the comments section below.

I think that this should be in classrooms for only necessary times. If a child needs time to calm down and take a break, then yes, they should be allowed to have one for a limited amount of time. But I think they should not be there for distraction.

Hareer - Age 10

Yes I think there should be because some people get fiddly and bite their nails chew their hair and some people have anger issues and I think it would help calm them down if they get mad

Elleanor - Age 9

I think they should be allowed in class because some children have disabilities so this makes some thing to do when they cant necessarily join in.

Amelia. a - Age 10

Kids with conditions such as ADHD or ASD may get triggered more easily to distractions and stress.rnIt makes sense for these kids to have them in class but I don't think they should be allowed IN the classroom for other students as it may CAUSE distractions but allowed outside.

We are allowed sensory toys in class as long as they don't make any noise and disctract us.

Finley W - Age 11

we can have sensory toys like squishy balls and pop it's but they distrupt learning for our class

Oscar - Age 10

I do not think sensory toys should be allowed unless some people need them to concentrate.
