I created this form to use with ABeka Academy Lessons. When the lesson for each day is completed, in the COMPLETE column, I write the date it was completed. This is one of the ways that I keep records for our home school. It could be used with other curriculums too, but I created it specifically for use with Abeka Academy lesson days.

Talen and I love us some pico with cucumber. We eat it mostly with tortilla chips. We put it on salads, tacos, nachos, and several other Mexican style dishes.
I love trying new recipes and I found this one on Pinterest. It has a delicious Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing which really makes the salad. This salad turned out so pretty and it was delicious too! We all loved it! We were able to eat on this for a couple of meals. The recipe I found didn't specify how to roast the chicken so I made a spicy seasoning rub to put on the chicken before I roasted it. The spice rub made the chicken really spicy but our family thought the flavors blended well with the Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing on the salad. My boys gave it 5 STARS!
We enjoyed Daddy's homemade chicken pot pies for dinner tonight. The filling is not real thick, but more soup-like, yet it wasn't too soupy and had a good consistency. Our family thought it was really good with the puff pastry topping. Our recipe will make four chicken pot pies using the 6 inch Round Corningware Dishes (24 oz). There was a little bit of the filling left to make a smaller one for the baby too!
Reading Response Activity for Read Alouds and Independent Reading
The first "Book Reviews" form I made was to use with my children after I read aloud a book to them. My Big Dog by Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel is our family's favorite read aloud book! We have read this one over and over. This is my absolute favorite children's picture book to read aloud! It is funny, hilarious, and amusing in a few short words. The illustrations are also delightful.
The second "Book Reviews" form is for my children to use as a reading log of books that they read independently. After they finish reading a book independently they enjoy doing a quick review and sharing their review with our family.

I have an older, smaller sized one, but this one is a much better size for a family of five. I have cooked so many meals in it over the past week since I purchased it, including: Sausage, Bacon, Eggs, Cheeseburgers, and Vegetables.

Cute Monthly Calendars Printable!
I created these fill in the blank monthly calendars for my children to fill in each month. Students can practice writing their numbers neatly while developing calendar awareness. You may choose to have the students fill in all of the numbers at the beginning of each month or you may have them add the number of the date each day. We also draw a shape on holidays and birthdays that we plan to celebrate each month.
Additional idea: Use these calendars to plan your menu for the month.

Back to School First Day of Grade and Last Day of Grade Printable Posters
This set includes all posters for Preschool thru 12th grade.
There are 2 posters for each grade level.
One for the first day of school and one for the last day of school.
There are a total of 28 posters (8.5 in x 11 in).
Print on card stock. Add to a frame if you wish!
Have the students hold the poster on the first day of school and take their picture.
Do this again at the end of the year just have each student hold the last day of school poster as you take their picture.
Print the pictures & send home with students.
Idea 2: Keep the photos and create an end of year power point presentation featuring each of your students at the beginning of the year and the end of the year. Set to music if you'd like; share at an end of year celebration. You could also print out the slides to send home with students at the end of the year as a keepsake.
Idea 3: At the end of the year let the students create a power point slide about themselves and insert both photos into their single slide. Combine all student slides for an end of year presentation. Print out each student's slide and send it home with them to have as a keepsake.
I have three different sets available on my TPT store.
If you live in NC and would like to home school your children you will need to complete a notice of intent to home school, which can be found online at the North Carolina Department of Non Public Education. This website will also help answer your questions about home schooling in North Carolina.
Each year I refer back to the North Carolina Department of Non Public Education's website to update my enrollment information and print out a registration record. Some places offer discounts for home school families so I like to keep a copy of the registration record on me. I also use the NC DNPE guidebook below for reference and on the last page of the guide book you will find an attendance record form you can print out. This is the form I use to keep daily attendance for our home school.
