In Pennsylvania, one of the homeschooling requirements is that we keep a log of books that each child reads throughout the school year. When the kids were little I would record their books for them, but as they’re getting older the responsibility falls more on their shoulders. There is, of course, mom-oversight of the entries, but they enjoy seeing what they’ve read and recording their accomplishments.
Now, because we have both boys and girls, you know a generic reading record just wouldn’t cut it. So, today’s Friday Freebie is actually two freebies – a blue and a pink homeschool reading record! Print them out, one per month, and include them in your end-of-year portfolio. If you’re like me and submit a digital portfolio, snap a photo or scan each completed page and add that to the file. I prefer this as it shows the progress of each child’s handwriting throughout the year, as well.
