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!

November 11th

Getting ready for the week. I am working feverishly on my homework this week, so I didn’t get my picture done. But I did have a chance to snap a few pictures of my centers for this week! So I am going to link up with Deedee at

So our centers for this week are:
Pilgrim Tally Marks, students identify the numbers  on the girls apron and write the number in the circle.

They have to identify the word on the turkey and stretch it out and write it in the boxes.
My kids are ROCKING at CVC words right now! They have to identify the word on the turkey and stretch it out and write it in the boxes.


Dessert Sounds, my kids have to identify the picture and write a sound (beginning or end sound depending on your students ability)

This one is a little different than my other centers, the students have to identify if the corn or pumpkins have more, then write the number in the circle.

And my favorite, cute little Indian boys with sight words, the students identify the sight word, and write it in the box.
