Homeschool Planning; Our Routine

Asalamu’alaykum ladies, we’re onto our final post in the homeschool planning series; our routine. I remember when I first began homeschooling, putting a routine together was the thing I usually went for first. I’d print off blank templates, and then start to fill them in, based on the curriculum or materials I’d bought. But I’d often find myself planning and replanning all too soon because there’s a lot more thought needed in creating a meaningful sustainable homeschool routine for your family. And the routine you create on paper should be a reflection of that thought process; your overall, yo ..read more

Homeschool Planning; Our Season

Asalamu’alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu ladies, welcome to the third part of our homeschool planning series; our Season. I did intend to post this series weekly; but with family over, and eight kids to take care of, I’m a little late. Nevertheless, let’s dive into it. So far, we’ve discussed the importance of having a homeschool vision; including how to create a vision plan, and statement to solidify our vision. And we’ve also discussed the importance of reflecting on our children as individuals; highlighting how they learn and process information best so we teach them in a way they learn ..read more

Homeschool Planning; Our Family.

Asalamu’alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu ladies, last week we dived into our first step in homeschool planning; our vision, where we discussed why we need to establish our homeschool vision, and how we can put together a vision plan, as well as a mini version of the plan by making a vision statement to remind us often of what our aims are so we can filter our choices and decisions through them. And today, we’re going to narrow that down, not by looking for curricula, but looking at our children. Because rather than finding curricula, and seeing if it’ll be a good fit for our child, we need ..read more

Asalamu’alaykum ladies, it’s been a few weeks since my last blog post; finishing up our school year, thinking about the next, and Dhul Hijjah and E’id celebrations, things have been busy here. And I know many mamas are knee-deep in the trenches planning for the upcoming year too, which is why this post will be the first in a series of homeschool planning posts, starting with our homeschool vision; plan and statement. Before adding items to our Amazon cart or researching curricula, it’s important we reflect on why we homeschool our children and what we hope to achieve by Allahs permission. As M ..read more

Three things we no longer do in our Muslim Homeschool

Asalamu’alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu ladies, how are you? Over the years, I’ve shared a few things we’ve done in our homeschool that I hoped may benefit another sister reading these posts. But today I thought I’d share three things we no longer do in our Muslim homeschool because letting go of things that you feel you no longer need or that simply could be replaced with something better, is equally as important to keep your homeschool focused on what matters. And my homeschool doesn’t look the same now as it did when I first started, or even a few years in. Sure, some things are still t ..read more

Asalamu’alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu ladies, How was your E’id? I hope you had a super joyous time with your loved ones. We had a beautiful time with close friends and delicious food from around the globe, Alhamdulillah (Malaysian food is SO yum!). This post is a little late but I thought it would be still useful for mothers out there still transitioning back to homeschooling ( which is also the reason this blog post is a little late to get published!) I know that post E’id feeling where everyones feeling tired (especially us mothers), still adjusting to routine after Ramadan and overal ..read more

Asalamu’alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu ladies, how are you? Things have been busy around here which is why I haven’t managed to publish a blog post for some time; my older kids fell a little behind with some academic work, so we’ve had a short-term routine in place the last couple of weeks to get back on track; Alhamdulillah, we’re almost there! And that leads me in today’s topic, connect first, the learning will come. Because in the past, these types of adjustments would have been a lot harder for me to cope with; and I don’t mean the organising part of things. Because printing off a che ..read more

Asalamu’alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu ladies, I hope you’re well.   After recently holding the free ‘5 Steps to Simplify Your Homeschool’ workshop, I’ve had many messages from sisters who want to homeschool but don’t know where to start.  So I thought I’d put this post together to help you get started in sha Allah.  This was an old post which I’ve added more to, and republished to make it more comprehensive and hopefully useful to sisters out there who are yet to start or are new in their homeschool journey, and need direction in how to start homeschooling.   ..read more

Being present in our Homeschool

Asalamu’alaykum was rahmatullahi was barakatu ladies. How are you? It’s already November, and I’m enjoying the cool winter weather, Alhamdulillah. So today, I thought I would touch upon something very relevant for us all, no matter where we are, how many children we have, and how long we have homeschooled our children for. And that is being present in our homeschool. Now you might be thinking ‘Umm Saleh, I’m at home with my children, I homeschool them, of course, I’m present with them!‘ But the reality is that even though we might be physically present, we aren’t always emotionally present.

Five tips to tackle a knowledge ‘gap’
Happy Muslim Homeschool

Asalamu’alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu, I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far. It’s been a busy week so far for us, but I’m enjoying the cooler mornings and colder nights. Winter is my favourite season of the year, Alhamdulillah, and I look forward to it, as do the kids. But, before we get into the tips, let’s stop for a moment and think about what is a ‘knowledge gap’ anyway. Well, a knowledge gap is basically discovering that your child doesn’t know about something you feel they should. Notice I said, ‘feel they should‘. And the reason I say this is because that is all it is. Fo ..read more
