As a homeschooling mom of 3, I know how hard it can be to save all the stellar work our kids do and not be overtaken with papers, files and huge binders for every year completed. So when I came across LearningKeeper.com, I just had to know more. You’ve never seen a homeschool portfolio like this.
Learning Keeper was created by one of us, this homeschool mom of four, has been in the paper portfolio trenches and implemented everything she learned while in them. With this totally online portfolio system (yay…nothing to download) you can keep anything and everything that you want! You can eliminate the paper headache of overstuffed files and clean out that closet packed to the max! I mean really, who needs more space? I know I do! I barely have enough space for all the books and curriculum we use…lol!
This system can help us regain control of the clutter and bring our children’s schoolwork to life. Without having to get a storage unit to store it all.
Do you live in a state that requires year end reviews by an auditor? This is especially great for you then…thankfully we don’t have assessments in Indiana. But if this is you, assessors or auditors may register with LearningKeeper by creating a free profile.
Since this is completely an online system, you can access it with any device that connects to the internet, even your iPhone. I tried this system out myself and it is so easy! If I can do it, anyone can. Trust me everything is basic and self explanatory. It is just wonderful. A true dream come true for the homeschool mom. And if you do need help they have a lot of tutorials to walk you through it.
Homeschool Portfolio Features:
