Moving to New Mexico has brought on some challenges for our homeschooling. In Arizona, record keeping is not required in any fashion. New Mexico requires keeping attendance and maintaining a minimum amount of school days. This has made me think about the best way to keep track of not only attendance but what the boys have done and learned each year of their life.
A few years ago, I printed a small photo book for Little T that had photos from birth to age 5. I’m in the process of converting that into pages that I can put into a binder to track their schooling journey. I plan to go back and do one page for each child for each school year they have done. I’ll also make some pages about their preschool years and maybe some about the various vacations we’ve taken over the years. I’ll probably throw in a few samples of their school work so they can reminisce when they’re older about how funny they were or how weird they wrote the letter e. Yes, one of my boys writes his e in the cutest fashion. He can write it correctly but prefers the cute method right now.
How do you keep track of your school days?
