The Record of Reading App
The Record of Reading app is a wonderful tool for increasing organization and simplifying the data collection involved with running records. This app records the student’s voice and allows the teacher to make running record notations as the student reads. It includes places for making notes about fluency, the book’s title/level, and the student’s accuracy and self-correction rate. This app also has a timer for keeping track of reading rate.
Folders can be created for each student. During the saving process, each running record is automatically dated. These records can then be moved into each student’s folder. When playing back the recording, the notations appear as the words are read. This is a great resource for parent-teacher conferences!
Tip: I found it easier to make notations with an iPad stylus, rather than my finger.
