use address labels, clipboard, and large index cards. Write your notes on the address labels as you walk around and observe. Later, stick them onto the child's index card. Quick and easy! Then, during parent/teacher conferences, just pull out the note card and share your observations.
Stick the labels on a clip board like this. And while you're walking around observing students, make notes. Write ANYTHING! Ex: Ashley is struggling with letter sounds. Continue to reinforce letters: H, M, and Y/Grant is reading well. May want to bump him up a level. At the end of the week, peel & stick to student's index card
Running Records Calculator (assessment): The best thing about the paid version is that it takes an audio recording of the child reading and you can flag tricky parts, but you can go back and listen to any of it again. The curvy arrow also lets you record and send the score and notes to anyone right then and there (in this case, her teacher) and NO PAPER. Also, if using an iPad with a wireless keyboard, you can type much faster than you can write. (From Hello Literacy)
