We have been gearing up for our next year of homeschooling around here which means we need some closure on the last one. This was my son’s first official year as a homeschooler so in addition to notifying the superintendent that we do intend to homeschool again, it is also time to have a portfolio review done with a teacher. In preparation, I printed out pictures from throughout the year of things he did, made, participated in, etc. I then printed out a list of things we checked out from the library as well as some of the websites and other resources we use. For his part, he helped me gather up samples of his work and other things he wants to share.
Both kids liked seeing the picture album and it reminded them of all sorts of things they want to do again. My daughter is looking forward to having one of her own this year! (An official one, I think I am going to make her one from this year too since she likes his so much)
