  1. I would use glue dots when doing projects with my class. They would make cleanup much easier and the projects won’t have to dry before putting them up.

  2. Glue dots would be very helpful with my primary aged students in special education at our school. We love to incorporate art into our lessons.
    Thanks for always being so thoughtful of teachers. 🙂 <3

  3. I would use glue dots for math projects. Math needs to be hands-on, and glue dots would certainly make the math lessons less messy. They will also keep the students more focused on the math and not be worrying about putting too much glue on their paper, getting glue on their clothes, cleaning up the glue, etc.

  4. Glue Dots. . .what’s not to love? Wow, what a concept! So easy for little fingers to use, so easy for teachers to clean up (none at all!). I would use those little dots anytime we need to attach one object to another!

  5. I would love to win a giant pile of glue dots. They would be used to stick charts and work on the walls and cabinets. They would be used in art activities, interactive notebooks, and so, so much more.

  6. I would love to use these with my special education classroom. Many of my students have sensory challenges with glue. These would enable us to complete projects calmly and with a sense of accomplishment.

  7. We would love to use glue dots for those little eyes, noses and ears on our masks. Mahalo for the opportunity to win a bunch.

  8. Yes! Glue dots are so much easier to use for ALL of those interactive notebooks!! They are faster for the kids to use, and they are certainly neater! On a side note, I use them instead of glue sticks for my 8th grader …. easier to fit in a binder pocket so he can carry them around.
    Love glue dots!

  9. For class projects and fine motor skills. I would also share them with the parents so they can see how to use them at home.

  10. I work with 2 and 3 year olds. We go through many glue dots for art projects, because they are so much easier for the little ones to use. We don’t have to worry about too little glue (things fall apart) or too much glue (messy). And they work with many different media.

  11. I make a scrapbook for each child in our class. I take pictures and keep some of their artwork. I present the scrapbook to wach parent on the last day of school. My books are called Kindergarten Memories. The glue dots will be used for this purpose.

  12. Glue dots are the very best glue you can have in a classroom of two year olds! They make crafting quick and easy, are easier to handle than glue bottles or sticks, and work well on hard to glue items! Glue dots give the children more opportunity to be creative! I would use these to further the education of my students through crafting and creative projects, and I will share with all the threes and fours also! Thanks for this opportunity!

  13. One of the ways I would use glue dots is to get the ball track toy to stay stuck together instead of constantly falling apart when I pick it up to move it in my toddler classroom.

  14. I have a STEM kit in which the students need glue dots to build pollinators. I would use the glue dots to refill the kit that I use with over 100 second graders each year.

  15. Glue Dots have helped me when I work on Graduation Decorations. I also like Glue Dots when I am doing quick projects in the classroom.

  16. As a teacher who loves having a maker culture in my class, these dots would offer another opportunity for young minds to explore. I encourage students to learn about the properties of the different materials in our maker area so they can make good choices about what to use for a particular project. Glue Dots would be ideal for jobs that need more than glue sticks to stick. Liquid glue is frequently our nemesis because it is hard to get things to adhere, it is wet and you have to wait for it to dry. Glue dots would eliminate all these problems and could help make some amazing engineering happen!

  17. Oh my gosh! We use glue dots daily in my classroom. I teacher special needs students and I have a few of them that cannot handle glue due to sensory issues so we use glue dots instead. I also use glue dots when making manipulatives and learning materials with my cricut machine.

  18. I would make the glue dots available with foam letters, shapes, and assorted pieces to allow students to stick those foam pieces to paper on a vertical surface (paper on a wall). I would encourage a community project. I am sure the children would think of many more uses for the glue dots, as well.

  19. As a Resource teacher I find that I have to make many of my games and manipulatives. Glue dots are fabulous, and let’s face it, I do nothing but burn my fingers with glue guns!

  20. The glue for would be a great way for the student hang up their artwork easier. They would also just be handy to have around the classroom for different stuff.

  21. Interactive notebooks! My fifth graders still struggle with too much glue!! I also love glue dots for attaching laminated labels to all sorts of things. So many uses!!

  22. I would first use them to put together our handprint calendars we make for our families for Christmas. The next project I would use them our the end of the year memory books I put together for my students!!

  23. I use them in my kindergarten classroom all the time! Google eyes, pipe cleaners, foam shapes & so much more sticks when using glue dots!!

  24. My 1st grade is learning to read. glue dots would be the perfect thing for me to use to stick “labels” of sight words around the house!

  25. I would use the glue dots to attach the CD case of a audio book to the inside cover of the book so the cd doesn’t become lost or misplaced.

  26. I teach preschool and use so many different kinds of visual aids that I laminate and then attach with velcro (using lots of glue dots). That way I can change visuals and cues to adapt to what is needed. I also use a linear calendar that uses a great deal of lamination and glue dots. We also do ALL KINDS of art projects and glue dots have never failed us when we need certain pieces to stay put!

  27. I would split the glue dots between my five schools I teach at daily and use them to hang student work and pictures of us learning cooperatively in class. I would also use them to make my room more colorful by hanging music terms on a word wall. I would also use them to hang CDs that accompany some of my books and games together with their materials so they do not become list or damaged. Thank you for this opportunity.

  28. The possibilities are endless, but with our concrete walls, I have trouble getting posters and charts to stick to them. I’ve tried everything, but glue dots. I would love to give them a try.

  29. Oh my goodness, I know my class will use a ton of these! We use them when we make the reindeer ornaments with their fingers to glue on the eyes and bows for girls. They are adorable!

  30. The question is, “What wouldn’t I do with them?” I wouldn’t glue them to eyeglasses, unless one of the students had broken glasses and needed a quick fix! You could use one of these little beauties to quickly help a child see the rest of the day! And while I was fixing my students glasses one of the posters fell off my wall, so now I have to try and find something to deal with the weird atmosphere in the building that makes everything fall off the walls! Wait! It worked on the glasses so surely it will hold these puppies up on the wall! There are so many things I can name that I would do it’s a much shorter list of what I couldn’t do. Like fix the sole of a shoe. Oh. Wait a minute.
    This doesn’t include all the things the KIDS could do with them! Oh my goodness! I bet this could be a great critical thinking question for them! Question: Please tell me ways these awesome glue dots could not be used! ???????? They would have to think hard! Higher order thinking? They would tell a way they couldn’t be used and another student can chime in and discuss why that’s wrong and how it COULD, in fact, work!
    Oh, the places you could go with these little babies!
