Homeschool Forms/Paperwork on www.UCHUpstate.com

One vital part to homeschooling is being administratively ‘on top’ of things while homeschooling.

 

In our state if you homeschool under Option 3 we must:

*keep attendance

*keep a portfolio of our children’s work

*calculate credits

*decide a plan of action for courses/classes for our children through high school

*keep progress reports

*give and administer grades (if we want)

*arrange for testing of various sorts (if we want)

*transcripts, report cards (if we want)

*and the list continues.

 

Well, I have provided a lot of help in that area.

Have you looked under the tab ‘Homeschool Resources?’

If not, there you will find resources that are developing and that is there to help in each subject matter.

However, there is one tab that says “Homeschool Forms.”

 

There  you will find:

*attendance record forms

*4-year plan forms (for high school aged)

*Sample transcript

*Sample course description forms and blank course description forms

*Course listing ideas

 

Keep checking back as I am continually adding things to this list to help you stay on top of things administratively within your homeschool. :)

 

If you are looking for something specific please let me know. I may have it but just not posted it yet. :)

These are helpful tools and “not MUST haves” to use because I posted them. You may have created some your own that you’d like to share with the homeschooling community. I’d be more than happy to post those resources for you. :)

 

Enjoy!

Taming our tongue while homeschooling

Mommas (and Daddys),

I’m sure that each of us can share being frustrated enough to where we’ve spoken harsh words while schooling our children. Or have been agitated enough to snap at our kids (family) with unkind words. Or heated enough to where we released words that we wish we could take back throughout the homeschooling day.

True? Do you agree?

I know each of us can testify to this fact as truth.

I have no advice to give about this ‘disease of the mouth’ and of the heart :) other than sharing and reminding myself of what the Lord speaks to us from His Word regarding this reality.

James 3:6

But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God;…”

I know that that truth seems pretty hopeless. 

We just can’t tame our tongues.

But….

Scripture also teaches those who believe, follow and obey Scripture that…..

Proverbs 29:11

“He who restrains his words has knowledge, And he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding. Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is considered wise; When he closes his lips, he is considered prudent.”

How about if we keep reading the verse that follow.

Proverbs 29:12

A fool always loses his temper, But a wise man holds it back.”

I guess the reality is that we ‘at that moment when we decide to speak harsh, in agitation, anger’ we are acting like fools. But when we choose to hold back those words……we are being wise.

Yikes…..I don’t like that. :(

I know my family and I have been talking about the ‘face’ of wisdom. The last few nights during our family worship time. We have been discussing the ways of gaining wisdom.

It’s only a result of the work of God. 

We can’t work hard enough or find ways to become wise. We can work hard to have common sense.

But wisdom is something that only comes from the Lord. We read that a few nights ago from Ecclesiastes. (See Ecclesiastes 7:23)

Seeking Him. Having a ‘holy’ fear of Him.

The focus Scripture we had was from Ecclesiastes 7:9 “Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools.” 

We had great discussion about that.

 

Well, as we start our year in homeschooling I simply wanted to take this time to exhort us in this area.

Be wise…..hold our tongues.

Ask the Lord for wisdom to do so.

Let’s remember the power we have in our tongues. 

It’s a small member of our body but can do great harm.

last week to register uchu-aa

Our first week of homeschool was amazing!! ~Stacy M.

 “Our first week of homeschool was amazing!! There were a couple of days that was a little bit of a struggle but I have enjoyed every minute of teaching my daughter! I’ve wanted to homeschool her ever since the day I found out I was pregnant with her and started 4K with her has been exciting to her as well as myself! I’m so thankful to have found this group so that we can participate in field trips, clubs etc! I’m also thankful God has allowed me to teach my daughter and given me the most amazing desire to do so as well! ” Stacy M.
