Pencil fidgets - They allow the student to have something to move around in their hands. Students that require such fidgets have a need for sensory stimulation, and fidgets provide that within the classroom setting. I know about 50 kids... and myself who would benefit from these.

Terrific quote for teachers by William G. Kids aren't robots. They're all unique: different languages, literacy skills, religions, family structures, likes/dislikes, experiences... And that affects their actions in your class. Be aware, be considerate, be patient, and be HELPFUL.

Handprint Heart - children take turns using their handprints to form a heart shape on watercolor paper. They could each write their name around the edge of the painting or a parent could write their names in pencil inside the childs handprint. Would be a fun Valentine's Day project... Could even let them cut out of construction paper and write their name.
