Regarding glue use...
I teach students to use "little dots" of glue spaced out over the whole back
of whatever paper they are gluing. If constantly reinforced from k up, the
concept usually sinks in.
I also intruduce, "glue use," beginning each year of every grade. I pull
the orange Elmer's cap off and explain/demonstrate exactly how the cap
works, why you must close it, why you must not alter the size of the whole
on top of the orange top. I demonstrate how to close and then wipe the cap
with two fingers (then rub off). I also discuss proper ways of unclogging,
when in doubt, ASK ME! The glue caps last much longer due to this lecture.
