K-8 Student Record for Peaceful Planning and Record-Keeping
The K-8 Student Record provides a compact space for keeping a permanent record of the K-8 years of homeschooling.
At the beginning of each school year, use the left page of the appropriate year to record what the student will be studying—including primary books, curriculum, and activities. If you’ve filled out the 12-Year Planner, you can simply transfer basic information to the Student Record, and add additional details customized to the specific student. At the end of each semester or year, write a few brief progress notes for each subject on right page of the K-8 Student Record.
Benefits of the K-8 Student Record
- Instructions and two model filled-out years help you see what sorts of things to include (and where to begin finding information)
- Compact size is easy to update and keeps you focused on the big picture (you won’t dread record-keeping any more!)
- Having a simple, all-in-one-place record for each student makes it easy to see progress from year to year
- Having a compact, easy-to-access record of your student’s studies is handy to have if the student transfers into another type of schooling
The Peaceful Planning system also includes:
“Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education.”
