Creative homeschool projects: The hadith of the four best women

Home school project ideas: Booklet based on the hadith of the four best women in Islam
With the number of blogs and education websites that are available now, it seems that ready made printables are becoming the work of choice for both parents and teachers because they offer a ready-to-go solution for quick easy lessons.

And this is awesome, don't get me wrong, I love a printable...I make and share plenty of them!

However, I fear that with this ease we as parents and educators find, we are kinda short-changing our children by not giving them so much opportunity to be creative and more hands on in their approach.

And this creative thinking is so important to their growth.


One thing I love seeing is kids original work. I'm not so imaginative when it comes to setting out projects, so being able to see what other families have done certainly helps me to direct the girls workings in a more authentic way.

The wait is over: ebook for Muslim homeschoolers is finaly here!

Advice for the Muslim Homeschooler ebook

I have a huge announcement to make in this post and I've been itching to share.
Advice to the Muslim Homeschooler has finally been launched as an e-book Alhamdulillah. Yay!

One thing apparent about home-schooling and the Muslim community world wide, is it is a relatively new concept for us. 

Although thousands (if not millions) of families have been educating at home for decades, (particularly in America) it is only in more recent years that we find Muslim families adopting this lifestyle choice and it seems to be gaining in popularity super-fast.

This is great for all of us because it means our circles get bigger and there is more support to go round.

Whilst there is a wealth of information and support available on a secular level (I have indeed benefited greatly from it alhamdulillah) there isn’t so much from within our own Muslim communities yet.
So that is where this “book” comes in to play, and it’s my humble offering to you my dear reader.

Wading through the fog: Your home school questions answered

wading through the fog: Your homeschool questions answered over on a Muslim HomeSchool

If there is one thing I know home schoolers have...it's questions, and lots of them.

If you think I'm talking about the kids, you're wrong. I'm talking about us, you and me - the grown ups!
We have a gazillion questions when we are home educating, as we try to figure out what we are doing.

 I look back to when I first jumped headfirst into my home school shoes; I wanted to ask anyone and everyone how they did things. I felt completely blindfolded and in the dark. I remember it seeming like I was searching for a needle in a haystack to find anyone who could, or who had the time, to answer me with the depth that I craved.
