I had a 7 pound weighted lap pad that I got in a donors choose project, but today a student decided to slam it on a chair. It exploded ALL OVER the room. Like there is blue goo on my desk opposite where this happened; it is on the walls and ceilings. It wasn’t even a student who needed it or was upset, she is just a student who thinks she can do whatever she wants with anyone’s stuff. My co-teacher had to go teach in a different room because the mess was so bad.
It is just so frustrating to try to have helpful tools for kids, but They always get broken and lost. It was just a very shocking thing to walk into. It was just a rough day all around.
