365-176-179 Portfolios for School

This past weekend I worked on the boys portfolios.
This is the cover. I found these at A.C. Moore. I was glad the boys did not think they looked to babyish, or to girlie. My husband thought I pieced this together myself. Free Icons I wish I had that kind of talent. I'm happy to know he thinks so highly of me.

The sections are cardstock with various stickers and clip art from the Internet.

I will not bore you with pages and pages of my boys work. Suffice it to say that behind each of these pages are samples of my boys work... also in plastic pages. I have been doing it this way for a long time. It makes it easy for the kids to go look through their portfolios from previous years without damaging or staining anything. These will also be available for future generations to see, and they are there in case I need them for proof to authorities of what we accomplished.

A lot of the clip art on this page and all the pages below, except the Math page, came from
I love that site... they have some of the cutest clipart...I did use other sites, too.

Christopher did Saxon Algebra 1/2, Nathan did Teaching Textbooks Algebra 2.

We covered 1455-1583 this year with a bit of "review" stuff in the beginning of the year that I forgot to cover the end of last year. There is a lot of stuff in this time period. As you can see we did Renaissance, Reformation, and Explorers.

We did A Young Scholar's Guide to Composers by Melissa E. Craig and Maggie S. Hogan from Bright Ideas Press. I did a review of this for TOS last year if you want to see it click here. The boys enjoyed it very much. This was one of the products we reviewed that we worked on all year and completed. Many of the others we only used for a few weeks.

I made a game for Young Scholars, too. Adapted from their curriculum. I thought I posted it already, but I just did a search and looked at my posts and I didn't. Maybe I will take pictures and post that later this week.

We did Chemistry this year. I love the clipart of the little boy with the test tube and goggles almost in the center of the page.

We have done a few projects that will not fit in this format of portpholio, our lapbooks for one. I just keep them in a box that I decorated. I will post pictures of them later this week after we get them put together. I need to get some more double sided tape first.

I may also be including some photos of activities we did this year. I have not done that yet.

The rest of the pages for the portfolios are done.
Filled in for another year.
On to other summer projects.

I am also adding this to the meme Stitching, Sketching, Scrapping Sunday

We do the same thing! (minus all the clipart!) My kids love looking through them seeing what we did each year!
