I love my Data Wall! We make two a class goals per term: 1 academic and 1 behavioral. Our goals are class based so it is still anonymous of the scores. Our academic goal is to reach a 90% class average on our spelling each week. Our behavior goal is to keep our classroom clean 95% of the time. If the class reaches their goals, we will have a class party!
The students are motivate to practice their spelling words more if we don't reach our class goal and they have started helping each other keeping their areas cleaner too!
Data Walls are essential and they have to be done correctly! Please do not post single student information - keep the data walls class orientated.
