Pinterest fail

When I stumbled upon the magnet sensory-center on Pinterest last week I thought it was brilliant! Put shredded paper in a box/sensory table, put paper clips inside the box as well. Give the student a magnet and let them use the magnet in the paper to find the paper clips.

Great, right?

Do you have any idea how hard it is to clean up shredded paper from the classroom floor?

Hard. Very hard.

Surprisingly harder to clean up than the tiny grains of rice that had previously been in the center and were driving me crazy because they seemed impossible for us to pick up with our pincher grasps. 

And now you know.
