Do you do report cards for each semester or year? I'm obviously just starting this journey and I'm also coming from a teaching background so I was wondering if report cards are required. I always thought of report cards as informing the parents of the students' progress so if you are both parent and teacher is that necessary? Please forgive my ignorance I'm trying to get away from public school mindset (and honestly I always hated doing report cards the most) but I'm trying to get an idea of what records I need. I'm planning on keeping a portfolio of work to demonstrate progress/understanding of skills as well as a list of books read/used and I have a checklist for beginning/middle/end of Kindergarten of things he needs to know like letters, sounds, sight words, concepts about print; and math skills like number recognition, shapes, counting, time, money, measurement...We are in TX and I know the state requirements as far as curriculum goes(I actually don't need to worry about until he is 6 but I'm a planner). Thanks for any advice in advance!
