Kira Beck is a Reading Recovery teacher and Literacy Coach who has taught Reading Recovery for eleven years. She currently teaches a class on using running records to help struggling readers in the Alpine School District. Today Kira shares her expertise on using running records effectively in the classroom.
Here are some video examples of how to give a running record. Keep in mind that you don't have to use a recording form with text as this may be too restrictive. For example, if the teacher would have recorded what the child said when he tried the word their wouldn't have been room to do so.
