This morning we were busy learning how to control glue bottles. I know glue sticks are probably preferred at home (and there is nothing wrong with them) but coming to school and learning how to control a glue bottle for the first time is VERY exciting for a three year old. We read a story called Too Much Glue by Jason Lefebvre. In the story we saw a little boy, Matty, get into a sticky situation when he used too much glue. The children were more than eager to try using a glue bottle after the story. We all sat together and after I demonstrated they had the opportunity to squeeze away. I was extremely impressed with their control and understanding of how to squeeze just the right amount. We kept repeating, "Dot, Dot, Not A Lot".
Give them a bottle this weekend and see if they can dazzle you with their control.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. It was so nice to sit down and chat with everyone this afternoon. Looking forward to next week when we learn all about Owls!
