One of the *joys* of homeschooling is keeping track of all the paperwork. I maintain a portfolio for each child which contains daily work. I keep all of their graded tests and quizzes in a separate notebook so that I have easy access for recording and averaging their grades. I've been staying on top of grading their papers, but I've fallen way behind in getting them into the notebook.

I had about 6 weeks worth of graded papers piled neatly stacked on top of my desk. I sorted them by subject and then 3-hole punched them. It took less than 15 minutes to get this job done, and now I'm all caught up!

Wow, I never knew homeschooling required you to keep the paperwork. Crazy! Great Tackle!

I know you must be thrilled to have the paperwork in a binder. I just love binders! I'm glad you stopped by my blog today. I love the planner that you saw. It's reduced on their website now, plus they have a satisfaction guaranteed policy. By the way, your 3 yr old is so adorable!
Have a great week.

I do the exact same thing with all the paper. I'm super duper organized but in the house of a HSer doesn't always seem like it's everywhere?? LOL! The boys love looking in their binder at all their schoolwork--however, I also have about 6 weeks of papers that need to get put in their binders. So, thanks to you I'll be doing that for my next Tackle! ;-) Thanks!!!! Good job getting your done! And thanks for visiting me. Have a blessed week. :)
