New Game: Fidget Spinning Left & Right

Just in case your school hasn’t banned all the spinners yet, Β here’s a cool little game you can play with the Left & Right lesson.

1. One person sets a spinner spinning on one finger.

2. The other person closes their eyes and has to try and touch the centre of the spinner (with their eyes still closed of course)

3. The other person guides them withΒ Left, Β Right, forward back, up, downΒ until they hit dead centre.

4. Of course if they hit too soon the spinner stops and they are both out!

Really simple, Β but everyone tends to play it again and again and again, of course with lots of English and direction skills along the way!

Do let me know what you think in the comments!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...

    Thank you Richard! You’re always in time! This toy has captured kids of all ages here. I see them playing with spinners everywhere. Now I know how to use them.
    Another idea is to get kids talk untill the spinner stops like in a String game.

    Richard, I think it is a great idea,.
    Adults are so quick to ban great new fads for Kids instead of making them work for everyone. I shall use it in August for our first day back with my new 2nd years. I know now, it will be a hit.
