Homeschool End of Year Homeschool assessment form report card

We are sharing this form, a generic free printable to help homeschool families and educators with their Homeschool end of year evaluations. As a homeschool family these past 12 years we know there are so many reasons why parents school to homeschool and we love to help however we can. We hope this form will be of use to other homeschool parents who want a simple Homeschool End of Year Form.

It is important to know that each state has their own laws that dictate what an educator must record. You need to make sure you are using forms that meet those standards. We created this form with the state of Georgia in mind as it was one of the first states our homeschool family ever homeschooled in. Your state laws might also make this form a good fit for your needs. This is a great form regardless of if your not using it in required records. Please be sure to check your local laws.

Importance of the End of Year Homeschool Forms

In the state of Georgia homeschool parents are required by law, Ga. Code Ann. � 20-2-690(c) to keep records on three things.

Students annual attendance record. 

Students annual assessment report for required Subjects.

Test results from standardized testing. (done every 3 years starting in 3rd grade)

 You also in Georgia need to keep them for three years. In the years we homeschooled in Georgia no one ever checked our records and while it can seem daunting to keep records, don’t let perfection get in your way of actually getting them done. It helps to have a system you love. Some years my records have been digital, and other times all hand written. At the end of the year I find it really helpful to use my detailed records to fill out the easy needed legal forms at the end of the year.

Our oldest daughter is soon to graduates high school soon! It is hard to contain the excitement! I remember how overwhelming paperwork used to feel, now it seems like I stressed too much for little reason. You can find forms online to help homeschooling requirements be less stressful! Your online local homeschool groups are such a fantastic resource! Don’t worry, most homeschool Moms have points when they freak out, yet we push through! The great thing is that you can share your freak-out with others and chances are others are going through the same things and others are keeping calm and can help get you through it!

 Finding homeschool forms online helps relieve stress!

Homeschoolers love going above and beyond and we have seen and created some amazing records. Long ago the best advice I received, regardless of state, about forms was to keep the public ones simple. That is why we made this form. It is a simple and easy Homeschool End of Year Assessment, progress report, that you print out, fill out, and file.

This is our form that we have changed over the years and shared in groups and tweaked. While we move often and have lived in many states, this is the simple form we do even when not needed. If you would like the editable file please send me a message and I will send it your way. Otherwise we have found that parents just print it then fill it out the way it is.

Enjoy the Homeschool End Of Year time, as it is another step on this special journey.

I have to admit, the time has flown by getting our oldest daughter from kinder – senior. There has been a lot of paperwork in all these years. I always specially love the end of the year though looking back on what has worked for us, and what has not. This form has all the basic necessary subjects and of course the important information to track too. The important stuff for our little ones happens to be what they like and their learning styles. We feel like making sure the kids get to learn the things they want is vital to their education. Plus, they learn so much faster when it is their idea to learn something! The kids had so much fun learning what it would take to have back yard ducks to actually hatching them and raising them and taking care of them. The kids have planned field trips based around their interesting and found ways to really be leaders in their own education.

Recording Social Skills on the Homeschool End Of Year Form

A special spot on the Homeschool end of year form is the social one. So many people doubt the social skills of homeschoolers and we know that is just silly. This special spot is one where you can record their strengths and ways they are improving. Our one shy son is now a leader among peers and the peace keeper as well. One of our daughters makes friends with everyone so very quickly and is very bold. Another one of our daughter is more shy but very committed to fairness and will stand up to bullies on behalf of others. We hope you find this spot on the form a great spot to high light this are too many worry about.

If you share this form also link back to this post to give credit to it.

We didn’t add copyright text to the image as I know that isn’t something us homeschoolers tend to love. A lot of people copyright their printables and that does help us remember what sites we should go back to for more resources. Hopefully you all will still remember us without it printed on the form. In conclusion, many have liked this form and we are happy to share our experience and help however we can.

The Only Advice You Need If You Are Considering Getting A Family Pet Dog

When it comes to family, many parents are always looking at ways they can enhance their family life. It might be planning different days out or vacations away. It might be considering homeschooling or deciding on the best establishments to send your children. In some cases you may be looking at the experience in the home, or wondering if there are any ways you can add to it and a family pet dog is one of the more common things parent sconsider.

 

Adding a pet to the family can be a real rewarding experience. For your children, it can teach them things like responsibility and empathy, compassions and love. For parents, it can be company during the day, an excuse to get out of the house and have some fresh air everyday, take exercise or simply just enjoy having a family pet around the home. There are some amazing positives for adding a pet dog to the family dynamic, however, where do you start of this is becoming a serious consideration for you? I wanted to share with you some of the advice that you can take in order to ensure you make the right steps and moves for you and your family.

Should I get a dog?

Decide on what type of dog is best for you

 

One of the first things to think about would be deciding on what type of dog is best for you and your home. Firstly, you may want to consider the size of dog. This would probably depend on the size of your home and how much space you do have. You may want to go for a smaller breed if you think that would be easier on your home. You also need to think about the temperment of certain breeds and this is when a bit of research online to read up on other people’s experience would help you out. Of course, you might also want to think about whether you are going to rehome an older dog or have a puppy to train. Sometimes a puppy might be a little harder in terms of the amount of training needed straight away, for example, toilet training. Whereas an older dog may take you time to get to know it and also build up trust, depending on the history of the dog. There are plenty of options to explore.

 

Figure out where they will sleep

 

Next up you need to think about some of the domestic decisions that need to be made and one prime example would be where the dog is going to sleep and stay when you are not at home. Many people are real animal lovers and don’t designate areas for their dog, allowing them to sit on the furniture and even on the bed at night. Others like to be a little more stricter in terms of that, and this is when having a dog bed in a specified area will teach the dog to realize that the bed and where it is, is in fact, their own personal space. Dogs like that.

 

Can you afford the additional financial pressure?

 

We can all be guilty of approaching ideas like this and thinking about all of the good things that will come along with it. A new addition to the family, going out for family walks and spending time with the new dog. But there are some drawback s that do need to be considered, niot just before getting a dog but also for the long term future. After all, once you have a new pet it is for life. There will be financial pressure to consider. The additional food you will need to buy each week, the things they need such as beds, collars, etc. YOu may even find that in the future they have issues which will require additional training aids where websites like dogable can help, or unforseen trips to the vets for medicines and even more expensive treatment slike surgery. You can’t predict the future, but there will be financial pressure to consider, and you need to ensure that you can afford it.

pros and cons of getting a dog

Training your dog

 

Training your dog might be harder than it sounds. It takes time and perseverance so you are going to need to factor that into your life and routine moving forward. Training essentially means all aspects of the dog life. From where to go to the toilet, to training to listening your commands and obeying them with things such as “sit” and “stay”. Do you have the time to really help bring your new dog along? Of course, training doesn’t have to be negative and it can all be part of the fun of getting to know your new dog. If you get a puppy you are starting from scratch, however if you do decide to rehome an older dog, they may have had some of the groundwork already in place, making it a little easier to ensure that you get off on the right foot.

 

Delegating responsibility

 

Sometimes when you decide on getting a new pet, the sheer excitement means that everyone wants to join in and help, at first. But then the enthusiasm can dwindle away and you can then find that you are left solely the main carer. Delegate responsibility right from the start to avoid this issue ever becoming a problem. Allow bigger children to look after the dog in terms of walking and feeding, enable younger children to do smaller tasks like changing water or being there for the walks. Having the expectation there right from the start manages the expectations not just of your new pet but also the family.

 

Making the most out of the positives

 

Finally, don’t let the negatives put you off, it can be a real positive experience having a pet in your family dynamic and routine, and sometimes you just need to make the most out of the positives. Embrace the opportunity for daily walks and exercise, enjoy the company you get when the children are all at school and the house is a little empty, and even enjoy the training side of things, because, let’s face it, sometimes it might just be the dog that only listens to your voice.

 

I hope this has given you a better insight into getting a dog and what you should be thinking about.
