Glue is a huge must have material in the art room. Have you had love hate relationships with glue?
I love the old stand by of the Elmer's liquid School Glue for 1st - 8th grades
My students learn to use "Baby Dots" and not "Big Daddy Dots"
If it gets on our hands we rub them together and turn it to "Dust"
I buy the glue gallons for refills.
Downside: Messy and clogs
I teach students to get rid of their "glue boogers" when they close their glue. hahaha
I also use Elmer's Stick glue for all grades. Student's learn that we just want to see "A Peak" of the glue when we roll it up. It's also a good tool to teach Right and Left.
Downside: wasteful ( you can't keep your eye on every child to see that they only use a peak of glue)
I buy more stick glue than anything throughout the year.
I don't think they make it anymore thank goodness!
Dick Blick stick glue! I don't usually put down Blick's materials, but this one was awful! It dried out after the first use!! even when used and closed correctly!
Now I want to know.... What are your thoughts on BEST and WORST glues?
