Homeschool families have students of various ages to teach at the same time. That usually means kids do some independent learning and that there is a lot of things to track to make sure they get done. I came up with School Punch Bookmarks to help homeschoolers know when they finished a subject for the day. {pst... they are lots of fun for kids too!}


What in the world are School Punch Cards?

Basically it is a fun way for you and your child to track the work they’ve completed. Just punch the subject / day and move on to the next task. There are various choices in the pack. You can choose plain, blank (so you fill in subject/task – you can do this in PDF instead of by hand), Tot/Preschool with fewer tasks, or one with many different playful images at the top.

You can use this just to track what your kiddo completed or as part of a reward system. We use this chart below. The kids can save up their punches.

I think this concept has limitless possibilities. I was thinking this would also be a really cool way to track chores finished, books read, and so much more. If this has been helpful I’d love to hear from you! Happy punching……

Additional Homeschool Resources:


  1. Is there a way to change the job/task names on the cute ones and be able to print them?

  2. How fun!! Kids love to SEE their progress, too. Great idea! (I shared it on Pinterest).

  3. I am an Activity Director at a nursing home and I LOVE this idea- we are starting an exercise program "fit & fabulous Fridays" I am going to tweak these a bit so my residents can get a punch for all the exercises! Thank you!

  4. This is an excellent idea! thanks for the free downloads!

  5. I love this idea! Is there a way that I can tweak them for our homeschool?

  6. What I like in this idea this is so easy to do. I will surely add this in my Homeschool Programs. I know the children love it also. Pretty good post.

  7. Thanks! I hope this works. I have been looking for something EASY like this.

  8. Thank you so much, Beth! You inspired me to make some for my children. Hopefully, it will eliminate the perpetual "Mom, what do I do now?" and "What do you still need to do?" We definitely can use tools like this to help keep us on track. Thanks again!

  9. BIG PROBLEM... no Saturday and Sunday! :-( Can these be made with weekend punch holes please? Even if it means less per page.

  10. Did anyone figure out how to change the subject names for the cute ones??

  11. Just found this page via Pinterest and am delighted because I had been thinking of something to help my son self-direct a little bit. How fun! Thanks for sharing with the world! Love it.

  12. How do you edit the blank bookmark?

  13. Yes I would love a blank cute one...still haven't figured out how to edit yet.

  14. thank you for these lovely punch cards- I am super excited to try them out on my kids so I don't have to listen to "...but I did it yesterday...it's not my turn" lol!!!
