the first year that I will put together a homeschool portfolio.
the progress of homeschool students. In
Maine we have a few different options, but the main ones are a standardized
test or to put together a homeschool portfolio to be reviewed by a Maine
together, I am getting a bit more nervous.
Trying to figure out what I should include in a portfolio is slightly
overwhelming. In all honesty, I would
like to give someone the box that holds everything we have done this year so

those things as I put the portfolio together!
This is just the first step in, what I see as, a longish process.

homeschool portfolio for review? I would
love to see what your supplies are!
