    Default Homeschool report cards

    I'm looking for a premade kindergarten report card template for my daughter. Can someone point me in the right direction of a website or book that offers this?
    Thanks!

    I use Homeschool Tracker Plus, which creates report cards if you want it to. Or you could create your own in Excel, for example. My older kids all go to p.s. For Kindergarten, their report cards used "Effort Codes" instead of grades: S for satisfactory, N for needs improvement, and U for unsatisfactory. They only got an effort code for Reading and Math. Then they for effort codes for a whole bunch of "Character Development" behaviors such as "works through assignments carefully", "listens attentively", "Follows direction", "Speaks at appropriate Times". Not sure that those would be applicable for homeschoolers, I guess that would depend on your homeschooling method. You can also find templates online. There is one that seems interesting here,for example.

    Awesome! Thank you so much for that link.
    I thought about making my own in an Excel program so I might use the one from the link as an example and go from there.

    Does anyone know if there's anything similar to Homeschool Tracker that's Mac compatible without having to download special programs to make it compatible? I'd love to have something like that. I'm hopelessly disorganized sometimes and having everything on a program would be awesome.

    Hi, Nani. NeoOffice and OpenOffice are two full free office suites available for Mac that can open, edit and save Microsoft Office file formats. If you don't already have one of those you would have to download them, but they are free and being full-featured (word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, etc) you might find them handy for other things. TextEdit, which comes with your Mac can also open .doc files, so you could give that a try for now to see how it works.

    We have our iWork programs set up to open .doc and other Microsoft-based files already; sounds like we'll have to download something either way if we want Homeschool Tracker to work for us, though. Thanks for the input!

    Hey Nani, there is a Homeschool Tracker forum specifically addressing running that program on a Mac, although I gather you do need to run either Fusion of Parallels, whatever those are . I think you might have to sign up as a member to access the forum, but not sure... try it! http://forum.homeschooltracker.com/D...spx?forumid=13

    I should clarify, it won't be a report card with actual grades. Just a report with the list of goals we made up last year and whether or not we made those goals. In the state of Texas I don't have to keep records but I want to just incase we find ourselves dealing with truancy officers
