Homeschool Hall makes Homeschool Record Keeping Easy

As homeschooling parents, our plates are practically overflowing with responsibilities. When it comes to homeschool record keeping, though, Homeschool Hall has proven to be a great time and sanity saver for me!
Even as a public school teacher, I always dreaded keeping records of student grades and activities. It’s not like I couldn’t do it, but it was just such a boring, time-sucking activity that I would stress about it and didn’t want to do it. I enjoyed the teaching aspect of working as an educator, but the record keeping requirement? No thank you!
Now that I’m homeschooling my own kids, my feelings on record keeping have (no surprise!) remained the same. I would much rather spend time planning for and doing activities with my kids, you know?
Whether you live in a state that requires homeschool record keeping or not (New Jersey is one that does not!), it really is important to keep accurate homeschooling records for reasons like:
- to ensure your child is receiving a balanced home education
- in case you move from a state that does not have required record keeping to a state that does
- in case you ever need to prove that you are, indeed, educating your child(ren)
- to provide an accurate record of grades for a child applying to a tech school or college
Since I’ve had some time to incorporate Homeschool Hall into my daily homeschooling routine, I can honestly say that the record keeping aspect of homeschooling no longer stresses me out.
About Homeschool Hall
Homeschool Hall is an online platform that focuses on making homeschool record keeping and connecting with the homeschooling community super easy!
Homeschool Record Keeping
With the Homeschool Hall platform, homeschooling parents are easily able to keep track of homeschooling activities, grades, and attendance and more within the Homeschool Hall Activity Journal.
Some of the core features of the Homeschool Hall Activity Journal are:
Within the parent dashboard of Homeschool Hall, parents are able to easily document the amount of time spent on core and non-core subjects within a time period and are able to see the amount of time completed vs the amount of time remaining/required. In addition, “Home” time vs. “Away” time can be tracked (which is especially interesting and helpful for those of us who love to incorporate homeschool travel and co-op classes into our homeschool days!)
If I gave my kids the opportunity to plan their homeschool lessons, I’m willing to bet it would be about 90% Science, 5% History, and 5% Math. Heck, if I had been in charge of my own education, I probably would’ve done the same!
Since I’m able to keep track of the details of homeschool activities, I’m able to make sure that we incorporate a good balance of subjects into our homeschool days.
It’s possible there still could be a bit of an imbalance just because Science reigns supreme in this house, but…at least I’ll be aware of it!
If your state is one that requires grades to be kept, you’ll especially love the Activity Journal! Within the journal, parents can keep track of both grades per activity and overall grades for the year.
Coming soon, Homeschool Hall will also offer the option of exporting grades and creating transcripts making Homeschool Hall a fabulous option for homeschool record keeping throughout your child’s entire educational experience!
Are you guys just as busy as I am? I swear, even though it’s called “homeschooling,” we don’t spend much time at home. We are always on the go and, because of that, I need to be as organized as possible and I might need a reminder to complete a task every now and then.
The creators of Homeschool Hall understand that homeschooling parents are some of the busiest people out there. One of my favorite perks of using Homeschool Hall for my homeschool record keeping is the fact that I am able to set up customized reminders (via email or text) reminding me to actually fill out the Activity Journal.
I swear, without the reminder, I would probably forget to fill out the Activity Journal. With the reminder, though, I’m able to record homeschooling information in just a few minutes each day. Easy peasy!
If you’ve reached the magical moment in parenting/homeschooling when you feel your kids can handle a bit of responsibility, you’ll love one of Homeschool Hall’s newest features: Student Access!
By giving your child access to their own Homeschool Hall Activity Journal, they can record their own grades and such all on their own. Of course, you’re able to customize what they do and don’t have access to, but this is a great feature for allowing your kids to take even more ownership (and pride!) over their education.
We have made some amazing friends since beginning our homeschooling journey and, if I’m being totally honest, those friendships wouldn’t have even happened if we hadn’t been in the right place at the right time.
Plainly said, if you want to make some awesome homeschool friends, I 100% believe you need to get involved in community activities. The Homeschool Hall Directory can help with just that!
Within the Homeschool Hall Directory, you can find listings for resources like co-ops, sports teams, local educational stores, homeschool tutors, clubs and more! The directory is organized by location so you can easily locate resources within your hometown or even homeschool resources while traveling!
Give it a Try!
If you’re looking for a reliable, user-friendly, and reasonably priced option for homeschool record keeping, you really should give Homeschool Hall a try! They offer a number of pricing options, from monthly to lifetime access, so you can make the best choice for your family.
You know what’s even more awesome than everything I just shared with you? As homeschooling families themselves, the creators of Homeschool Hall are dedicated to making the lives of homeschool parents easier and options for connecting homeschool communities better. I’m telling you right now, even though the Homeschool Hall app is already awesome, it’s only going to continue growing! Sweet, right?
