Way back in Ohio time I was teaching first grade and we were using the 4 Block approach along with Fountas and Pinnell book leveling. At that time, my school district purchased a membership for Raz-Kids.
It was this great interactive book reading site. My class loved it because they could read books online or have them read to them.

That opened me up to branch out in my literacy planning and I turned back to Raz-Kids. Let me tell you...if I thought they were good before now I think they are Incredible! On this site, you still get the great interactive books for students but now they offer online running records. I can assign a running record to a child on their own log in page. They read into the computer and Raz-Kids records the reading. I then can go back and score it with their simple drop down menu. I do this with the student and then print off their score. I get a book level, words per minute, and more. I can totally clone myself! I run reading groups and assign running records to other students at the same time. Plus the students love hearing themselves read and it has been amazing for their fluency!
