Over the years, I have worked hard to put together a record keeping book that would work for assignment too. However, they have always been a little too much for my older children.
We have three books this year, one for each of my oldest two children, and one for myself.
The oldest children’s books contain:
- Daily Schedule
- Attendance Record from Donna Young
- Weekly Assignment with Grade Record
- Reading Record
- Memory Work from The 2011-12 Schoolhouse Planners
- Bible Memorization Record The 2011-12 Schoolhouse Planners
- Crafts Completed this Year from The 2011-12 Schoolhouse Planners
- Field Trip Report
- Extra Educational Help Pages, multiplication chart, Presidents and Terms charts, 13 Colonies etc. From The 2011-12 Schoolhouse Planners
Each of the sections above are divided by a colored piece of card stock. I am considering adding sticky index dividers to help locate each section quickly. My children are expected to fill in the forms each day with a little help from me. Keeping records is a life lesson you must learn, so what better way then to start them by keeping their own homeschool records?
My Notebook contains:
- Daily Schedule
- Yearly Calendar
- Family Lesson Planner
- Workbox/Gamebox Planner
- Copies that Need to be Made
- Health History
- Preschool-First Grade Lesson Plans
Again, each of these sections are divided by different colors of card stock.
To make my notebooks, I use my laminator and laminate the front and back covers. I then use my comb binder to bind the books. We use these two gadgets nearly weekly in our homeschool.
As the school year gets in full swing, I am sure I will add forms. How do handle the lessons, records, and lists you need to keep organized?
