In our state we don’t have to report our grades, but sometimes it’s nice to have a plan and a way to keep track of your homeschool grades. One of my favorite things about homeschooling is that it eliminates the stress on my children when it comes to grades. In the early elementary years I don’t like to really keep track of grades because I try to teach to mastery and understanding.
I remember how stressed I was when I was little and report cards would come out. It sure is a lot of mental anxiety to put on small children to make sure they are getting perfect or good grades. This is why I love homeschooling so much, my children don’t need to live in fear that they are doing good enough, they can just enjoy being with me and learning.
Whether you believe in report cards or not, it is important to have some kind of record of what our children are doing. Report cards are a great way to keep track of your kid’s grades (if you need to keep track of them for your state laws). They are also a useful tool in helping to hold our kids accountable to their work, and having a visual aid of tracking their progress in certain subject areas. Report cards are pretty easy to create, but if you are not tech savvy, there are plenty of free templates available online.
If you are wanting to help hold your children accountable for their grades, and keep a record of where they are at academically, then you will enjoy these FREE Report Card Templates. All the work is already done for you, you can just print them and fill them out.
