What educators are saying

Thank you, thank you! So nice to have an easy to use, quick assessment to help me figure out where kids are in their reading journey!
Wow, these are really cool! I can't wait to use these in my class. Are you making a growing bundle for them?


This science of reading-aligned decodable running record resource is what you’ve been searching for! You know completing running records using leveled readers just doesn’t give you the information you need to determine your students’ reading proficiency. 

This progress monitoring tool takes running records to the next level. These running records are designed to help teachers analyze beginning and struggling readers’ understanding of phonics. They ALSO include fluency and comprehension measures to move beyond the analysis of phonics skills in isolation.

This teacher-friendly resource has everything you need to collect data, monitor your beginning and struggling readers’ progress, AND report to families or child study team meetings. 

It contains two passages for each phonics feature within the closed syllable, totaling 18 decodable passages!   The Administration Protocol is a guide for teachers that offers scripted procedures to maximize efficiency.

The Guidelines for Analyzing document helps the teacher determine whether the student is responding to structured literacy instruction and includes suggestions for next instructional steps. 

The Teacher Reporting Document makes data collection and reporting a breeze! There is even a sample reporting document to use as a reference.

Decodable running records will provide teachers with the RIGHT information to help students become proficient readers…because every child deserves reading success!
