Keeping Track

So with school coming up, I feel like the mind is running a mile a minute. Trying to get things set up and ready. It's been hectic and crazy, to say the very least. I've been doing so much planning, writing up the curriculum, figuring out a schedule...there's so much to do and so little time. But slowly, we are getting there.

I don't know about you, but here in my state, they have an hour rule for homeschoolers. So I've been busy creating a chart to help us keep track of all that. It's required to have met at least 1000 hours of school time. 600 of those hours must be of core curriculum learning.

So I designed a simple chart to put in my binder that will allow me to keep track so that we have everything accounted for of what is core and what is not. Here is what I have come up with:

I've already printed out several sheets and they are in my binder. As I fill them up, I'll just print out more as needed for the year. It's a pretty simple chart. Just allows me to put in the date, subject, and if it's a core or non-core study. I also have a cheat sheet on the top for abbreviations. I got this idea from another home school site in my state. I think this will be very handy.

Does your state require you to keep track of hours for your homeschool children? If so, do you have a similar chart or did you find another way to make it work for you?

  1. This all looks so daunting! I was thinking about if I end up homeschooling Kaylee at some point, I'll try to find a group so I can meet some other homeschooling moms. That way I can get some advice and Kay can have some homeschooling friends. When I was homeschooled, I was in a theater group, we put on a play each year and also just hung out together.

    Good luck, I hope it goes well!!!
