What sticks to cement?

My class has cement walls and regular tape wont' hold up my posters. I tried staples' mounting putty but no luck with that either. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Use a hot glue gone, but be careful when picking it off.

I've used the 3M command strips/hooks to hold things up. Name brand masking tape also works. Hot glue is my friend when it comes to my cement/cinder/brick walls. Make sure that whatever you hotglue is laminated though. Non-laminated paper is hard to get off. Also, velcro works on these types of walls.

Was PreK SPE, now HS SPE.
Mavalus Tape! I buy several rolls every year. It is the only thing I can get to hold my stuff up on the walls.

Small clips-I think they are called stikki clips? They are white with an adhesive on the back and 1 clip, so you need at least 4 for a poster. I reuse them

Use the hot glue gun. My CT took my advice last year and she was thrilled with the result! She was really tired of all her posters falling at random times during the day. To get things back off the wall try using a hair dryer set on high heat to help.

I love the 3M command strips. I was also thinking of buying Gorilla Tape...it's supposed to be the strongest tape...?
