I use a data wall with student names to track their learning of sight words. We have 16 lists, and each one they get a paper egg in their bird nest. D other students in the class see it? Yes. Does it reward those who are doing the work at home and provide recognition? Yes. Does it motivate my students to learn their words and help them to become more fluent readers? Yes. I have had no complaints from any of my parents. I have, however, had several parents realize their child is performing at lower levels than their peers and begin to do something about it.
