Between IRIs or F&Ps? Need some data to inform instruction or to take with you to a SIT Team/IEP meeting? Grab a Running Records Generic Form off your stack and ask the student to read out loud to you, right from the book he or she is currently in the middle of, right where he or she is. No need to provide specific texts (unless you need to in order to support/disprove a hypothesis you're harboring)! Informal Running Records allow you to cater your instruction to your learners, keep an updated file on each student, make informed and insightful comments on interims/progress reports and report cards, identify ongoing struggles, and communicate with parents and other professionals. The resource includes a reproducible page that you can make a stack of and keep on hand and is followed by a page of notes offering suggestions for using the resource.
