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.

This is an awesome product. I use this product in kindergarten and I LOVE IT!
No need for pencil boxes that take up too much room. I don't stick this item to their desks so the children can take them to another table of if seat arrangements change during the year. The children don't play with them and know that it's to keep their items organized! Just set the rules straight and they wont play with it.

Not as good as I hoped
I have found that students play with these. If the tape stays, then the bottom of the item stayed stuck while the top part of the item broke off. Many of them seemed to be in need of more tape. When that didn't work, I bought velcro. When that didn't solve my problem I bought industrial strength velcro. I just had the students take all of these off at the end of the year and I don't know if I will use them next year. When they aren't attached well and they fall during class it causes a lot of distraction. These don't seem to be the answer for use in my classroom of second-grade students.
