Last year I discovered Homeschooling software. Since my curriculum comes with lesson plans, I found the job of putting in resources such as books, as well as individual assignments, tedious. I wanted my time to do something besides data entry.
This year I found Homeschool Minder . With a few simple steps I had Piper entered in as a student and could start recording. I can put in grades simply by entering one assignment if I want to, which is what I'm doing. I'm putting in the entire week for Reading, Math, Religion, Science, P.E., or Music and grading her on the whole week. I can even do a simple pass/fail if I so desire. It calculates grades for me. There is even room for field trips and community service. It all seems so much easier than the last software program I was using. More professional looking as well.
I stopped using the last software program out of frustration, but I have higher hopes for this one!
