This could be very useful once the kids learn how to use it, however, I know that I would want more than just a few little boxes and I don't know that putting them on the wall would be the best idea because then you have to worry about whether or not you are using strong enough card stock that will hold to the wall while keeping the papers from not spilling all over the floor.

I have used this is my classroom for three years. It works like a charm. The students love to see how many gum balls they can earn during the given time. I have either set the timer for the full amount of work time or set it for smaller increments of time. As a reward, if they reach the goal, I sometimes give a piece of bubble gum, or something toward a classroom goal for some other reward...For example I might give them a letter toward building the word Compliments.
