Some states require homeschool parents to keep records of what their child has done during the year. You might not ever be required to turn those records in, but it is always a good idea to have them filed away just in case. Besides, it is a great way to see the progress or lack of progress your student has made for the year. Even if your state doesn’t require this, you might want a record for yourself.
It is a good idea to keep records showing some of the following:
~Grades (if you keep grades) for each grading period, the semester, and the year.
~Areas of concern or areas you would like to see improvement
~Field trips taken
~Samples of writing assignments
~Books read by your child or books you read to your child
