    Anyone have any ideas of something I can use to show a students reading and decoding progress?

    Would you just use a running record? Or is there something else useful out there?

    I would use a running record.

    But you could also use decodable words or nonsense words to show progress with decoding. Have a student read a list of words (starting with VCV and building to multi-syllabic words).

    You could also use timed readings to show growth with fluency or a tape record of a student reading.

    My students like to be videotaped. I just received a Flip camera from DC a couple weeks ago, and we watch ourselves read on the smartboard, and talk about what we can do to become better readers. Next year I am hoping to get a sample at the beginning of the year, and again at the end of the year... I think that would be neat for them to see!

    The videos came in handy at conferences to when talking to parents. It's much easier to talk about what we are working on when their child reads when they can see an example.
