These are without a doubt the best things ever. I cut the adhesive and just put two small squares at each end and they hold wonderfully. If I need to get them off, with a little effort, I can move them. I HATE NAMEPLATES. They are raggedy looking after a month. These keep things nice and tidy ALL YEAR LONG. This is my second year using these and I will always have these in my classroom. No more lost pencils, erasers etc. I can use the double sided desktop helpers and the students can use both side. But because there is no picking.......I can also reuse the desktop helpers. Best things ever.
My only thing is, where can I find additional adhesive that came with the prop and parks? I have moved to tables and would like to purchase more of just the adhesive strips. Thanks.

Desktop Prop & Park
I started using these for back to school night to help parents and students find their spots.

Every teacher should invest in these!
I have these on the student desks to hold their pencils, erasers, and name plates. I did not use the adhesive that came with it. Instead, I used Velcro. (I love Velcro!!!) This allowed my students to take it off as needed - and it was much easier to peel the bottom Velcro than the adhesive.)
My students loved it because their name plates were directly in front of them instead of lying on the desk. It also allowed for more space instead of writing on top of their name plate. The desktop helpers also gave quick access to their pencils instead of fumbling around for them.

I have been using these for 3 years, and I love them!!!! I started teaching halfway through a school year, and before purchasing them, there were pencils all over the floor because they would roll off the desk. The following fall I purchased three packages of them. At first, I used the double sided tape with them, but it was a more permanent solution, and when they moved my furniture out of my room some of them were ripped off. I purchased more to replace the broken ones, and now I velcro them. I just pull them off the desks at the end of the year, and put them in a cabinet. As a result of my using them, more teachers in my school have been using their EEF money from the state to purchase some.

Looks good but...
I would love to buy these as sticking them on the table takes up too much space. However, if they are $21 and change, that is way over priced. especially if you have 25 students. Too bad, I think they would have solved my problem.
