It’s back! The Homeschool Attendance Record for 2021-2022 is here!
I can tell that homeschool moms are starting to mentally switch over to next year due to the many emails that are trickling in regarding the attendance record. We just finished up our school year on Friday, so my thoughts are starting to roll for next year as well.
Because the calendar is so simple – and I need a whole lot of simple – the style for the attendance record is staying the same again for this coming year.
The simplicity of the homeschool attendance record is what makes it so fabulous, in my opinion.
Keep reading below and I’ll show you how I use this easy calendar in my own homeschool year after year.

Homeschool Attendance Record 2021-2022
With a multitude of children to school, loose papers everywhere tend to be a challenge. I am a bit old school in that I still like a paper copy of something, as opposed to a digital copy. So the papers I do have need to be streamlined.
I continue to use my little attendance record because it is so streamlined. I print the calendar front to back, so it is one sheet of paper for the entire school year.
It’s just a lovely thing.
At the front of my homeschoom mom notebook, I print this Homeschool Attendance calendar on card stock so the holes won’t tear during the school year.
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.
You can take a look at the school year we just finished up:
This calendar runs with July-December 2021 on one side and January-June 2022 on the other.
Make sure you print it double-sided so you only have to keep up with one piece of paper!
