Regardless of what style of homeschooling your family does, at some point, every family needs a way of maintaining records of what topics and subjects have been covered. Also, every family at some point or points needs to be able to generate transcripts and other types of reports to demonstrate what your students have covered. With the Annual Membership Plan, I can use My School Year Homeschool Record Keeping to easily track and organize our homeschool.
My School Year Homeschool Record keeping is a record-keeping program that functions as a planner and more. From everything from keeping track of the usual subjects and attendance records to creating transcripts and more this program has a lot to offer.
I freely admit I am a planner-junkie. I love planners. I love exploring what various programs have to offer. So I was excited to have the opportunity to review this program. I would like to state I am the primary one who has been using this program since I am setting up our new school year using it. Our new school year will not start until the day after Labor Day in the United States, so we still have over a week to go. This planner is online so it goes where your family needs it to go.
My School Year Homeschool Record-keeping offers a homeroom where you can quickly see at a glance your students. There is a calendar which displays appointments, extracurricular assignments, and more. The lesson plan book displays assignments. A large number of reports are available to use and print. Finally, the Teacher’s Aid displays what you or your students still need to do. Because I have a few subjects we have not made a final decision on what materials we are going to use, those items display here and serve as reminders of what I still need to do. Also, because we have not started our school year yet, I see prompts to enter attendance into the program.
I began by inputting basic information such as school information, student information, subjects, and even our extra-curricular activities. I found the program fairly easy to use when getting started. The screens were fairly easy to follow.
For families who have more than one student using a particular curriculum, it is fairly easy to assign those students to the same lesson plan. When our children were younger I would have loved this feature.
I love how the calendar function displays appointments, events, extracurricular activities, lessons, and reading list as well.
Also, the number of reports and the types of reports available is impressive. Here are some examples of what reports you can create.
Each day you can set up the program to send emails to remind you of what needs to be completed that day. I find this to be a worthwhile function.
All in all, I am pleased with this program. It packs a lot into a fairly straightforward program. So check out the Annual Membership Plan from My School Year Homeschool Record Keeping to see how you can easily track and organize your homeschool.
