Great idea: "The kids add a sticker every time they get a 100% on their spelling tests. As you can see from the sticker chart, we went from less that 50% of the kids achieving a 100% to almost 100% once we started keeping track of the data! The other charts consist of Excel graphs made up of various pieces of classroom data. The post-it notes on the graphs are the students "thinking" in regards to the data. This wall became a great motivational tool for my fifth graders!"
This blog post is a must read! Research shows that when students track their own learning and data they perform better on high stakes tests, have increased intrinsic motivation, and do better in school. This post walks you through a super clear step-by-step process to help you start implementing Student Data Tracking binders in your classroom! So easy and so much positive change in the classroom!$
