Preparing a Homeschool Portfolio by Richele

Here in the great state of Texas we are not required to submit a homeschool portfolio, but since many states are, I wanted to share this wonderfully informative article by my dear friend Richele over at Under the Golden Apple Tree.

What is a Homeschool Portfolio?

A homeschool portfolio is a window into your child's homeschool experience, achievements, and academic progress, throughout the school year.  There are more then on way to keep a portfolio but I will list the core items you will need.  However, always check your state laws, homeschool co-ops, and with the evaluator, on what materials are required. 


The Basic Supplies

  • 3 ring binder {3 inches or more thick}
  • dividers
  • page protectors
  • Sharpies
  • computer paper to print out basic forms
  • samples of your child's work
  • photos {optional}


Forms to Provide

  • Attendance Form:
  • List of Curriculum and Resources
  • Reading List
  • Daily or Weekly Routine
  • Record of Grades or Progress Report

    This is just a portion of her article. Click here to view detailed information on what she includes as well as fabulous links to printable forms. If you have a moment leave her a comment and let her know I sent you!

I didn't use a student planner last year, but going to this year. Thanks for giving me an idea of how to organize it!
