Dh open to homeschool, but not to unschooling - Page 2

post #21 of 23
We have now homeschooled in 3 states and have 4 kids. I keep records with the thought I do not know what state we will be in for sure NEXT year I also keep them myself mainly so I can remember what worked and who liked something at what age and when my oldest was doing highschool it helped that he had his 'records' to make out his transcripts and to refer to when essay writing for scholarships.
it is nice to have the scrapbooks of the things the children have done and learned also for them to see the growth in their writing and recall the places & things they have enjoyed. This year I am calling them scrapbooks or journals, not 'recordkeeping'. Children have personal 'nature' journals also and spiral artbooks that we glue in their favorite stuff they make or write regularly. When Grandma comes they love to sit down and share the stories they have written with her and show her the pics they drew.

I would want to keep a record book. I don't think WA state requirs me to...but I would want to. And yeah, calling them journals sounds much better.

So many great ideas!!

Openskyheart, I love your notebook idea. Like you we do it in spurts. We always seem to be hot around sept. and Jan.
