All very cute ideas! They definitely got me thinking about what I could do in my room with the space I have available. I wanted something that would give my students a visual reminder of the progress they were making towards their goal, and perhaps be a motivator for those students that continually lag behind. Here is what I came up with:
I teach the English-side of a dual immersion class. That means that I have two groups of students that I teach everyday: the red class and the blue class. It also means that I have to fit double the amount of students (all 51 of them!) into the space I have for the display.
I ended up using some blue and red Christmas paper that I had on hand to make strips for each student.
I printed off stickers (1"-2 5/8") with their names and their AR goals on them. I used these stickers to anchor their strips to the cupboards along the back wall of my classroom.
Then I printed 1/2 a sheet of return address labels with points in .5 increments. As students earn points, they add stickers to their strip to show their progress.
When they reach their goal, I add a large yellow star to the bottom of their strip.
I like that students can see where they are at, and where they are headed. I like that I can reward students that reach their goal, and that it provides motivation for the other students to keep working towards their goals. I like that it doesn't take up much room. I'm not sure if I would do it this way again yet.
