- so flexible and adaptable! This can be used by very young students that are ready to start practicing independence in their schoolwork; and can be used by high school students who need records of their attendance and time spent on subjects in order to prepare their transcripts.
- practical and simple to use.
- gives the student responsibility to keep their own records - as much or as little as they are capable of. Little ones need only to checkmark the boxes, while older ones can be responsible for keeping track of their time spent, scores, and more.
- at the end of the year, the logbook can become a kind of yearbook, summarizing how the school year was spent, along with books read, goals met, and highlights of the year.
- we found a little bit of an adjustment time was necessary, as I reminded the kids to check things off in their logbooks, just like any new habit that needs to be established. Really though, it is so simple and takes so little time, that both kids quickly made their logbooks part of their school routine.
- it really cannot take the place of the detailed assignment instructions that some students need, so do keep that in mind.
