Here in FL you need work samples, a log of educational activities, and a list of reading materials used.

A teacher in our school district told me to give as little as possible and add a note that said more available upon request. He feels the district doesn't even look at the portfolio. He homeschooled his two children and they included just samples of each subject. They want to see progress. I was so nervous the first year, but not so much now. I guess i finally realize the law is on my side. Some people do scrapbooking. I would like to research more about that.

I don't use a portfolio per se. I do keep samples of their work each year because I want to look back with them some day.

I am in FL and use an umbrella school so I am not required to keep anything but we do lapbook for science and history, keep a book of centuries (CM timeline) and an art scrapbook. We also are beginning to do literature journal books. Spelling, math, etc. just get tossed IF we even bother doing it on paper.

If I had to do a portfolio today, I would include:

chapter review or test page for math

review pretest for spelling each week

pictures of each lapbook for the actual portfolio and bring a few examples to the evaluation. However it would be impractical to bring everything to an eval since we do more than 20 lapbooks a year (this year it will be more like 30). I keep each and every lapbook and we revisit them and expand on them often but I don't include them in the actual portfolio.

photo essays from fieldtrips separated into subject topics, social studies, science, art, pure social, physical ed, etc.

lists of topics covered in each subject, I have a scope and sequence in my computer and I would probably include that with the appropriate year highlighted

literature list, included on the scope and sequence

Free reading book list

photos of any extracurricular activities we do, archery, 4-H, violin

photos of a few of my favorite pieces of art

Keep in mind I would include far more than what is required because I am a bit obsessive. LOL
