Growing up going to school, I always remember the dreaded book report days. They always stressed me out so much. I would rush to scramble to finish the book, which is never one I was ever interested in reading in the first place. Then I would have to sit down and grudgingly write a report about it. Now that I am a teacher myself, I truly see the value in book reports. I think adding book reports to your homeschool reading curriculum is a great way to help with reading comprehension, writing and even public speaking skills.
Keeping track of records can be a tedious, time-consuming affair. This can be compounded if you also have to compute the records in order calculate some kind of result. However, there are a number of aids you can find that can help you find some shortcuts. For teachers, it is important to have a way to measure the performance of their students and determine how well they are doing in class.

I am probably the odd man out when it comes to book reports, but I love them. I loved them when I was in school and I still love them. I have always found that fun. My kids, however, do not share the same sentiment. They love to read books and retell the stories to me, but they have a disconnect when it comes to putting it down on paper.
