If I had seen this when I was a new teacher, it would have made a HUGE difference in the way my classroom functioned.

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!
