There has been a lot of talk lately about homeschool organization and planning for the new school year. One of the things that seems to be forgotten during planning mode is preparing for your homeschool portfolios.
If you wait until the end of the school year to put your homeschool portfolio together you will have a big mess of papers and piles of books to sort through. This is not a fun task when you should be spending that time on planning and preparing for a new school year. If you take the time to think ahead while you are doing your planning, you will be ahead of the game when it comes to putting together your portfolio.
I like to have planning pages printed out ahead of time for my kids to keep track of their lessons, attendance, reading resources, field trips etc… I create a binder for them, and at the end of the year I am able to use those pages to include in their portfolio.
Here are some FREE printables to help you get a portfolio ready for your children at the beginning of a new school year:
