Yahoo! The Homeschool Attendance Record for 2020-2021 is here!
And as I look back through previous years’ records, I see that I am surprisingly early in posting it this year. I’m giving myself a pat on the back for that, haha.
I’m grateful for this momentary quieter season of life.
It thrills me that so many homeschool moms use this calendar year after year. Because it’s such a simple calendar, I’ve left it largely untouched through the years.
The simplicity is what makes it usable, in my opinion.
I’ll show you how I use this calendar in my own homeschool.
Homeschool Attendance Record for 2020-2021
If I’m not very careful, my homeschool room gets over run by papers in a heartbeat. In fact, one of my goals for next year is to help my younger two girls get a handle on organizing their daily work.
To make sure I don’t add to that chaos, I use my little attendance calendar year after year because it’s all on ONE sheet of paper. It’s such a beautiful concept.
At the front of my homeschoom mom notebook, I print this Homeschool Attendance calendar on card stock. Card stock ensures that the holes won’t tear towards the end of the year.
I also make sure I print it front to back so it’s literally just one piece of paper to keep up with.
There are a couple of variations for using this attendance page. Here are a few ideas for using it in your own homeschool:
→ Place a check mark in the days your children complete school. This is what I do.
→ If you need to keep track of multiple kiddos, just create a key. For example, Child #1 is a check mark. Child #2 is a circle. Child #3 is a triangle. Or you could color code them and use a check mark or dot. For example, Child #1 is a blue check. Child #2 is a red check. Child #3 is a green check.
→ If you already know you won’t do school for big chunks of time (vacation, for example), go ahead and cross those off your calendar. It makes it easier to see the big picture.
How to Use the Homeschool Attendance Record
I like simple, so I make sure this attendance record is easy to use. At the end of each month, you’ll see two slots. Here is how to fill them in:
→ Beside Total Days: Write the total school days completed for the month.
→ Beside Cumulative: Keep a running tally of the total school days completed for the year. Just add on the days completed each month.
Here’s a look at my attendance calendar this previous school year. Pardon the coffee stains.
This calendar runs with July-December 2020 on one side and January-June 2021 on the other.
Make sure you print it double-sided so you only have to keep up with one piece of paper!
