I've added a new Homeschool Daily Planner for 2012 to 2013. You can download it free from my homeschool page.
I view this planner as my child's educational resume. This is where I keep track of everything that he accomplishes during the year. At the end of the year, it will be the first thing I include in his yearly school portfolio outlining the days he attended school, the schedule we kept, the curriculum we studied, books we read and other activities of educational value.
I like to laminate the daily schedules and use a wet/dry erase marker so I can re-use the pages and easily make changes when needed. I also realized that there were many things we did together, like baking bread or making yogurt, planting herbs, traveling, attending a cultural event, etc... that I wasn't documenting as "school". So I've added a page to keep track of those real-life learning experiences as they occur. Hope this is helpful to some of you!
