This is my first year teaching 1st grade after 6 years in K. I am starting to get frustrated when I do running records. I did 2 today, and after I finished I went back and pointed out words that the students read incorrectly. Both of the students immediately read all of the words that they had miscues on correctly when I just pointed and said "What is that word?" Of course I did not change the running record, but what can I do to help students self correct their own errors as they are reading or read the words correctly the first time when they are obviously capable of decoding them? I feel like 1/2 of my class is "below grade level" in reading, and I am getting discouraged. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
