Data Wall

Hi friends! It has been a while, don’t hate Smile I promise once school is out and my Masters is done, I will be around more! 


Anywho, I posted this my Instagram and Facebook today, and got a huge response to please post about how I am doing my data wall.
The state of Oklahoma said we have a new evaluation system, we went with Marzano, and he is big big big on having students track their own data. So the beginning of the year I posted this pic.


And for about 13 weeks it has just looked like this.  We are supposed to post their “zip code numbers”. I don’t know about you, but I was so afraid to try this with kindergarteners. I am sure it works, but I was afraid to try it. I wanted to try something a little more child-friendly. So we are going to try it this way….


This is what my board looked like today. Do you see any numbers? Noooooo. I came up with this idea on the fly today. All my kiddos have a “picture” image. It is in their cubby, to try to have them quickly learn. Now they do not have just random pictures. So Kaci for example would have a Kite, and Dustin would be a dog. There are 22 different pictures for 22 kiddos.
We are charting Phoneme Segmentation, Letter Naming, First Sound and Nonsense Words. We use DIBELS. I “progress monitored” my kids the last few days, to see where they are for the MOY assessment in December.

Welp, I am off to bed! Have a great evening!
