STS
Some kind of pen through dollar
Possibly the Zig Zag Pencil (Because you use a pencil every day...)
Maybe Bendy Pen or NO. 2 Pencil
and the Micro 5 (Depending on what kind of desks you have. Perfect for mine...)

A deck of cards and a handful of change. You could do an hour long routine with just those two props.

Guys, you seem to hate gimmicks a bit too much. Sure, sleights take more skill, but don't gimmicks acomplish some things sleights can't do? They both have their ups and downs, but this guy was just asking what gimmicks people like best for school.

1. Distortion
2. Panic
3. TT
4. No. 2 pencil
5. Invisible deck

In no particular order.

I would suggest

Any Pen through Bill,
STS
The Raven (Don't try to use the M5 though, it doesn't really work at school)
Pretty much any gimmick where they can mess with it without revealing the secret.

Zig Zag Pencil would be good, but if your school is anything like mine, they'll want to push the middle section out a whole bunch. This will eventually give away the secret...

IMO i would not use any form of gimmick at school. You might occasionally come across the "grabby type" And plus with an ordinary object you have nothing to hide, which i think is always better.
