I was wondering this too! I have a couple fidget toys I'd like to have on hand just in case (like the bubble one and this thing called a tangle). I don't think all kids that go to time out would need them, but some of the times I can think of if someones getting angry. I have a little boy that I know of coming up that has had lots of anger issues in the past few grades - I'm thinking these might be good for him - just to help him calm down.

But I'm not sure if I should keep these things easily accessible for ALL kids? Would some of them that go to time out for other reasons (like whispering to a friend during morning meeting) really need them? Would I have goofing around issues that stem from me having these items close by?
