Why have 4-H Record Books?

4-H Record Books serve a variety of purposes in the Montana 4-H Pro-gram.

**4-H Record Books give members an opportunity to Reflecton their yearly work. Members document their skill development and their learning experiences in a written report. 4-H members measure their achievements and growth in their total years in 4-H.

**4-H Record Books encour-age members to set goals, pursue strategies to meet those goals, and to shift gears in the face of challeng-es and obstacles.

**Completing a 4-H Record Book is a process where 4-H members record project and club work. Records man-agement is a competency skill to identify, create, classify, archive, and preserve records. The 4-H Record Book teaches 4-H members these skills through a standard format.

Make Record Books Valuable

1.Use Record Books OFTEN as a tool for sharing and reflection!

2.Set goals early, and set aside time at the end of the year to reflect on those goals. Focus on the re-flection, not success”.

3.Educate on the differ-ence between What I Did,and What I Learned.What I Did -Literally, what you did. What I Learned -The reflection portion. What did I actually learn from this experience??
