Not Just Any Old Glue

My classroom supplies showed up yesterday.  (We don't have  community teacher supplies.  Instead we each get $250 to spend on whatever we'll need for our own classrooms.  Works for me!)  One particular item that arrived has got me excited.  Actually, I bought ten of them!



 It's not just any old glue stick.  Notice what kind it is.


Yep, it's restickable.  Go ahead and move things around.


Basically, you can make your own post-it notes from whatever paper you'd like, large or small.  I never knew such a glue existed until I read Smarter Charts.  (I posted about the book here.)


Here's a picture of how the authors used the restickable glue to help them create one of their classroom charts.



I'm looking forward to the joys of resticking in my room this year!

  5. I LOVE this! Thank you so much for telling me about it! I'm not a teacher, so I don't have a classroom in which to make use of it, but I am a picture book writer which means mocking up dummies for my stories, and this is the solution I've long been waiting for!
