Are you confused about homeschool record keeping?
First of all, most states don’t require detailed records. Many ask you to simply sign that you’re meeting generic requirements, and possibly do a standardized test OR portfolio review.
But, many families like to keep records just for their own benefit. It helps them know what their children are learning, and see just how much they are really doing!
If you aren’t sure where to get started with record keeping, let me help you.
I’m Kate, and I’m a mama to 6 kids, and we’ve been homeschooling for 7 years.
I’ve tried lots of systems. I found that I would forget what we had done unless I’d thought to take pictures at the time — but so often, I was “in the moment” with my kids and that meant I had no record of it. Our “school record” looked pretty paltry, so I knew it was time for something new!
This is our third year using this system, and it’s working.
I take a few minutes to make a note of each activity, event, or other “learning activity” that we do. And over time, it really adds up! It also helps me remember if a specific kid needed more help with a certain skill, so we can go back and address it later. Without having to keep every scrap of paper they ever filled out.
It’s pretty awesome.
I decided to share my system with all of you!
It’s simple, with 5 different sheets for different types of learning activities. The packet comes with instructions on what to fill out in each category, and suggestions on keeping it all organized.
