Lord Heritage HomeSchool Office Review


HomeSchool Office Review

Hi neighbors,

Recently I was given the opportunity to review the Lord Heritage HomeSchool Office.  This is an online program where you can schedule your homeschooling, keep track of grades, and transcripts.  This is an online homeschool management tool that works with just about any curriculum.

Pricing is $79 annually for a family.  There is a free 30 day trial available, which I highly recommend.   All your students and their records will be in one place.

HomeSchool Office allows you to go in and assign work to your child/student.  Each child can have their own password to access their account and get to their personal assignments.  You are also able to print off schedules.

The entire program is based on POWER.
Program
Order
Work
Evaluate
Report

You can use this thought of POWER as you design and setup your HomeSchool Office.



Program is where you plan.  Decide which direction you are going.  Here you will lay out and design your master schedule.  You can budget what you are able to spend on curriculum.  You will also be able to set up projects.





Order, this is where you actually put your schedule into play.  Input the schedule you have set down, add reminders (extremely helpful) and add in any other scheduled activity reminders, such as sports, art, music lessons.


Work is when your child actually accesses their account and marks off as things are done.  Obviously you can also print the schedule and mark off accomplishments.  You will be able to check in and see what has been done and know what will need graded.



Evaluate includes keeping attendance records, grades, and tracking subject hours for records.  This comes in handy depending on how much your state requires of you.



Report allows you to print off items required to be turned in to the state.  It also allows you to print off for your own personal records and/or transcripts.



Now, let me say here, this is a very organized approach to scheduling, tracking and keeping records of your homeschool.  Unfortunately it is not me.  My schedule is extremely flexible and often changes week to week.  Sometimes we are on the road, or an unscheduled meeting comes up, for me this makes using HomeSchool Office more difficult for me.  I do know many families that homeschool that would benefit from a program like this.  I can see where it makes record keeping so much easier. A parent with older children could easily plan their school schedule, allow the child/children access and then check in to see what has been done and what needs to be looked over or graded.

It does take some time to learn to se the program.  I had to play around a little to get used to it and learn what I could do.  It is just not a good fit for my homeschooling style.  Here I want to remind you though that no two homeschools run the same way.  Please, if you think this will work for you, take time and try their 30 day trial.  Also, take a moment and read what other Crew members had to say.

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon
