Keeping with the video theme this week, today’s entry is an oldie but a goodie. (Though I did find a cool and easy way to decorate a clipboard too, so you might want to hand out to see that for yourself too.)
Assessment is part of being a good teacher and while many think the only way to assess is through a paper and pencil test, I am here to gently remind those few that there are lots of ways to assess student learning. And running records are great not only for seeing growth, but also for having a paper trail to monitor individual student strengths and needs.
The video below shows you a quick and easy way to set up running records that can be as formal or as informal as you choose! Use different colored cards for different reasons:
- Reading workshop
- Writing workshop
- Math fluency
- Vocabulary Mastery
- Reading Fluency
- Behavior, and more!
