Hi! It’s Wednesday, August 7, 2013 and time for Language Arts at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 4-18 (Designed for homeschool parents to track activities for grades PK-12.
While I usually stick to recommending sites that enhance learning about reading, spelling, grammar, and writing on “Language Arts” day, I couldn’t resist sharing this free resource, developed by a homeschool family, that enables you to track your homeschool course of study and activities for free.
I know that keeping records is a big concern to many homeschool parents, especially once the kids hit the high school years and need to create transcripts for college. While this site is designed with homeschool parents in mind, older students can use it for record-keeping purposes and get some practice using their language arts skills as well. Even unschoolers can use this system to track learning opportunities and interests they have explored as well.
The description provided at the Homeschool Skedtrack website explains it all:
“Homeschool Skedtrack is a *FREE* online lesson planner, scheduler, and tracking system rolled into one. The heart of the system is the automated scheduling of activities that frees you from the headache of rescheduling everything once an activity/lesson is missed.”
- easy record keeping from PK-12 for each student
- worry free data back-up
- flexible scheduling of your child’s activities/lessons per year, per month, per week or as you go
- automated tracking of total number of hours/days completed
- scheduling and tracking of field trips
- a school calendar for each student
- tests recording
- automated grade calculation
- report card generation in pdf format
- transcript generation in pdf format ( two columns or by subject )
There are even video tutorials at the site to explain how to use the Homeschool Skedtrack program.
Not only that, this site offers a database of educational websites (many that have been recommended by ClickSchooling over the years). Not only does the database include websites on various subject topics such as math, science, music, homeschool resources, etc., it allows the users/visitors to rate the sites which can be helpful in determining overall usefulness.
