Record Keeping (All Ages)

How It Works

Is homeschool record keeping a burden? Are you afraid you aren't covering everything? Do you feel guilty about not doing enough school work?

A Record of the Learning Lifestyle is a straightforward and effective homeschool record keeping system that helps you focus on the most important things in training your children. You can see at a glance how you are doing at covering a broad range of subjects; and you can give your child appropriate credit for all of his daily activities, not just his "school work."

A Record of the Learning Lifestyle gives you a system for tracking what your child is doing every day, 365 days per year. Each week you can see the areas you are addressing well and those to which you should give more attention. A Record of the Learning Lifestyle helps you focus on providing spiritual training, building character, and equipping your children with academic knowledge and skills.

What's Inside

The main section of A Record of the Learning Lifestyle includes an opening for each week, Sunday through Saturday, all 12 months of the year. The openings are not dated, so you can begin keeping records in January, September, or whenever you wish.

The three special features of these pages include:

  • Spaces to record the activities of each day, Sunday through Saturday.
  • Spaces to record the activities of the week in specific training categories, including:
    • Spiritual Life: Bible Study, Worship, and Christian Fellowship
    • Learning to Work: Chores, Service, and Life Skills
    • Relating to Others: Character and Relationships
    • Learning About God's Creation: Science and Technology
    • Learning About People and Places: Geography, Government, and Foreign Language
    • Learning About the Events and People of the Past: History and Biography
    • Learning About the Thoughts of Others: Reading and Literature
    • Being Creative: Art, Crafts, Music, Drama, and Other Creative Activities
    • Learning to Communicate: Letter Writing, Grammar, Handwriting, Creative Writing, and Journaling
    • Caring for My Body: Exercise, Sports, and Health
    • Learning Math, Problem Solving, and Thinking Skills.
  • One opening shows a whole week's work, so you don't need to flip back and forth between sections.

A helpful introduction gives encouragement to parents who want not to be burdened with homeschooling, but to be guiding their children in a learning lifestyle. In the back of the record book are four extra sections: "Books I Have Read This Year," "Books Read to Me This Year," "My Grades, Test Scores, and Awards for This Year," and "Notes".

Each child in your family will need his or her own copy of this record book, which can become a treasured keepsake showing the year's activities. We have several different covers to choose from, and all of the record books have a convenient spiral binding that opens flat.
