I am using Alpha Omega (lifepac) 8th grade for both my children. Any suggestions?
There aren't any strict guidelines on what to put in your portfolio in Florida. Here is a good place to see the laws for yourself: FPEA I hope this helps!!!
I have a daily log that has the lifepac number(801,802, etc.) than the page numbers and the date. I keep this for Math, LA, History and Science. I also have a space for Bible. There is extra space to add in writing assignments, spelling test, projects, etc. Do I need to have them hold on to all of the pages that they do? Is there a minimum number of hours they are to spend each week on the subject? Sometimes my DD gets done with math in 10 or 15 minutes, other subjects may take 30 to 40 minutes. I need to try and see if I can find more info that is a little more detailed. Thanks so much.

So if I keep a log or summary of what they do each week (life pac number, pages, spelling test, writing assignments and such), that should be ok for their portfolio and than maybe put in the test from each lifepac they do and than some of their writings and info on their science project, that would be enough?
You guys are a GREAT help. Thanks
That's about right. This is what I do.
Monthly journal for each subject. One page (with each subject on it) per month.
Reading list, includes books on tape, newspapers, Bible, anything they read or was read to.
Curriculum Used: Our evaluator requests this, I am not sure if it is required.
List of field trips or activities
I put in there any certificates they have earned. The last one that is in there now is a Certificate of Achievement for climbing the lighthouse.
Pictures of any of their activities. Could be a project they worked on or a field trip. Whatever I want or the kids want in there.
Then I have dividers for each subject and each one has samples of their work and all of their tests.
That is all that I put in there. I did start a topic on this a while back. I'll have to hunt it down and bump it up. It is getting to be that time to work on it again. Donna has many wonderful forms to use for your portfolio.
