How do you all keep records – if you do? I need some help and suggestions. I am usually very good at planning but I have no idea where to start in this aspect. My state does not require keeping records but we are military and may move to a state that does with little notice. So how do you do it?
My oldest is 1st grade this year. btw Thanks!TailorMadeParticipant
I’m not treatises to keep grades, or attendance. But, I so keep math grades. Just a chart with lesson numbers and I date it and note grade. As the kids begin to work more independently, they take care if this detail.
I read a post about using the table of contents for each book to be used as a manual version of the CMO. I plan to do that this year and will note dates and grades on these pages.
My phone changes words without rhyme or reason.
“Treatises” was supposed to be “required.”greenebaltsParticipant
Sowing Little Seeds….I create a lesson plan and use it as my record of our school year. I don’t keep grades until high school, which we use for a transcript. Our kids range from 2nd to 11th grade. The kids also create portfolios throughout the year with some of their work. Each child has a 3 ring binder that’s tabbed by subject. We stick loose papers and projects in there. I also keep completed math workbooks and our high schooler’s notebooks. I too have heard of keeping the Table of Contents or taking a photo of any projects that don’t fit into the binder. Add the photo and discard the project. This can be sensitive for some kids. In the beginning, I kept a Rubbermaid tote of everything for each kid, but it was too much to store, hence, reducing to the 3 ring binder
You can get an idea of my lesson planning here….. http://reflectionsfromdrywoodcreek.blogspot.com/2012/06/2012-2013-school-year-planning.html
I LOVE the SCM book “Planning Your Charlotte Mason Education”!
For Record keeping, I use the SCM Organizer. We don’t have to keep records here either – but using the organizer, we get a great summary, as well as a detailed record – an for no real extra work, as it has our planning/to-do-list etc too. I tried to keep a record before we used the SCMO, and was horrible at keeping it up.
