Several years ago, I brainstormed an easy way to keep track of our homeschool attendance. I figured out quickly that the fewer number of pages I have to keep up with, the better!
In North Carolina, we have very few homeschool requirements, with attendance being one of those.
Because I thrive on simple, I needed an easy method that used only one piece of paper to keep track of our days in school.
For several years, it has been the perfect solution for my record keeping!
Homeschool Attendance Record for 2017-2018
Many of you have asked about my planning for the school year, and I’ll try my best to write a post about that in the coming few weeks. This attendance page is definitely one of my must-haves during my planning time!
→ Browse through all of my homeschool planning posts!
I print this on cardstock, front to back, and then bind it in my homeschool planning book. My planner is almost always open on our school table, so I never lose track of my lovely attendance page.
There are a couple of variations for using this planning 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.
→ 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.
This calendar runs with July-December 2017 on one side and January-June 2018 on the other.
Make sure you print it double-sided so you only have to keep up with one piece of paper!
