The company Edutaters has produced a wonderful product for homeschoolers that my daughter and I reviewed called My Student Logbook.
We received a physical logbook with our choice of cover design. We chose to have a dated book (August 2014 – July 2015) in the Rainforest design. You can get an undated version if that works better for you.
The age range for My Student Logbook is 2nd grade and up. It’s especially helpful for high school students who need to keep track of all their work and hours for a high school transcript. But it also worked perfectly for my 6th grade daughter.
You cut this sheet out and then fold it in half from top to bottom. You tape the back section on the back of a log page. (If this confuses you, there is a YouTube video to show you how to do it!)
If you need to list specific page numbers, chapters, etc. for the student to do in that subject for the week, you can list it underneath.
Then, here is the really cool part, you simply fold that checklist page over the next week’s log so you don’t have to rewrite it! Again, you can write specific notes that are unique for each week on its own page.
If you need more checklists in case the subjects or books change throughout the year, there are 5 extras included.
What We Liked:
I have tried lots of different types of logbooks/checklists for my kids throughout the years, including ones that I have made myself. None of them were as good as this. I love how the author really planned it out so well. It is sturdy, so I expect it will last throughout the year. I’m really considering using this for my kids to keep track of everything during their high school years, so we can get it all written out on a transcript. If you’re worried about getting a high school transcript prepared, Corina includes 3 full pages at the beginning of the logbook to explain how to do it!
What We Didn’t Like:
I actually can’t think of anything I didn’t like about it. 🙂
