The record of reading was created by Marie Clay and allows for observation and analysis of a child’s reading.
This app allows you to take the running record (you will need a stylus), and when the errors and self corrections have been analysed it will calculate the record for you. It allows you to create multiple folders (one for each child) and you can email the record as a PDF. It also allows you to record the child reading, this would be fantastic for recording fluency and analysing strategies the child is using.
I would use the box titled (enter statement of child’s reading here), to record comprehension responses for the text. It is vital that we always check for understanding of the text as well as decoding strategies. If a child can not understand what they are reading what is the point?
