I was nervous about buying these, since some of the other reviewers had written that they were flimsy. I have to say, I don't think they're that flimsy. The lid is a bit flimsy, and it would be nice if it latched on to the base better (it can easily pop off), but I am content. I love the three different colors they come in as well. When I need more storage space for my sentence strips, I will buy another set of these!!

I love these. I can find my sentence strips and short bulletin board edgers very easily.

With the new common core standards being used in my school system I needed some place to store all those "I can" sentence strips. After laminating them I had no way to store and sort them according to subject.
Now I do! These boxes are a great way to store them. I have one labeled reading, one labeled math and the last box labeled science and social studies. I am so happy I ordered them!

Store More Sentence Strip Boxes
When these arrived, I was so excited to be able to organize my sentence strips before school started. Overall, I really do like them. However, I was expecting them to be made from a heavier plastic and be a bit more sturdy. I was disappointed with the fact that miy boxes wouldn't close (and therefore stack) because I have attached paper, Ellison die-cuts to many of my sentence strips which stick up above the top of the sentence strip. Also, if you have attached another piece of a sentence strip to the end of one, you will need to bend it in order to fit it in this box. When I previously stored mine in the cardboard boxes, this didn't pose a problem. So, if you have regular-sized sentence strips with nothing hanging off, then I'm sure you will love these boxes!

Great Addition to the classroom
Realisticly, these products are not made of a half inch thick plastic but they are durable. These previous reviews are false. The product will last. Take care of the product like you would anything else. I was actually impressed with the boxes when I got them. I was fearful that the boxes were like the plastic planting boxes that you buy for first seedlings. Typically those seedling planting boxes are flimsy and break easy. You will not find this with the sentence strip storage case. It is a great product. The cover is made of a sturdy plastic that appears to be somewhat resistant to wear and tear. The product is also closed to not allow moisture into the compartments--awesome. The only thing it is missing is dividers. It would be perfect if they were the length of the compartments in a bold color and SOLD in units of twenty--HINT HINT TO Management!!!
