My first year teaching I had a student in 2nd grade diagnosed with ADHD but
not on medication. He was always out of his seat and had a hard time
getting any of his work done. One day at wits end, I told him that I was
going to apply some magic super glue to his stool. I went through the
motions of squeezing it out on his seat and having him sit down. From that
point on he actually stayed in his seat and for the first time finished his
project. As he left the classroom that day he asked "Can you bring that
magic glue for next week?" We not only used the glue the next week but for
the rest of the school year. It was amazing. Unfortunately, I have tried
the magic super glue on other students and it has never worked again.
