Where the great things about homeschooling is the ability to personalize not only the way you teach but the way that you store and keep your records. I have always thought that more is better than less when it comes to details therefore I compose an educational summary for each academic year. This synopsis includes information about our curriculum, supplements, field trips, volunteer experiences, extracurricular activities, behavior issues, attendance, areas for improvement and end of year scholastic assessment results.
Sounds like a lot, huh? Well that’s because it is. In addition, I keep a folder full of samples of his work and take pictures of any large projects he created for the photo portion of our portfolio. The report card we use is from a free packet download found via a quick google search.
