Classroom Data Wall



Here is a sample of our ever changing Data Wall. 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!

  1. Wow! The data chart looks like a very successful way to motivate your students to study their spelling words. I will have to try that out with my fifth graders next school year. Do you put up the stickers to not embarrass students who did not get a 100%? Or do you have the kids put up the stickers in front of their classmates?

  5. I like the idea of the children seeing their performance. I think I'll steal this awesome idea, but add stickers for anyone who improves. Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. This is something that I have been trying to put together all summer. Can you tell me the specific data graphs that you have posted? How did you manage the sticky notes that other students put up?

  9. Do you find kids get upset at all if they realize they are in the minority for not passing? Do the kids share score or announce when they are one that didn't pass?
