Homeschool Planner 2018-19 designed with Muslim home educators in mind

Homeschool planner designed for Muslim home educators

Nothing beats the warm fuzzy feeling when an empty homeschool planner presents itself; an invitation to recreate our homeschool just as a fresh coat of paint gives a new lease of life to old tired walls.

I'm super excited to share our brand new Homeschool planner, and I'm even more excited to start using it myself!

This production has truly been a labour of love....truth be told I am a bit of a planning nerd. Although I have to tell you, sometimes the planning is a little more fun than the implementation of it all.

Its specifically designed for the Muslim Homeschooler, with both Islamic as well as secular quotes relating to education scattered throughout to sprinkle a little inspiration when you need it.

You can choose from two cover titles:
homeschool planner cover choices

And did I mention, there is an awesome bonus with every purchase! (it really is awesome...you'll find out what it is near the end of the post!)

Come with me as I take you on a tour inside....

Homeschool planner 2018-19

So what's in this years Homeschool planner?


Loads!

It's divided into seven sections; each with its own tabbed divider designed with a quote from the Qur'an, hadith or Ulema. 
homeschool planner sections with Islamic Quotes

Introduction pages:


Includes:
  • Title page
  • Emergency contacts
  • Contacts
Contacts pages for the Homeschool planner

Our Calendar


Includes:
  • Year at a glance - covering August 2018-December 2019
  • Individual monthly calendar, again running all the way to the end of 2019
Year at a glance and monthly calendar for the homeschool planner

When we think of a calendar, what usualy comes to mind is marking future events, dates we need to remember. It's obvious. 

However calendars are brilliant tools to "plan backwards" - penning down your activities after they occurred as a way to record all those spontaneous last minute plans or activities that get forgotten once its all over and done. 

Throughout the year you'll be surprised at how much you have done with your family; which will help give you a boost, because we never think about each time we walked through a park, or took an impromptu trip to the local museum.

 It's also helpful to have on hand when you need to provide your homeschool accounts for your Local Authority (if they contact you!)

Monthly Homeschool Reflections

Includes:
  • A double page layout for each month of the year.
    Each month displays a different secular quote relating to homeschool and education to inspire.
Monthly homeschool reflections for the planner

Out of the whole planner, this section is actually my favourite.
It's designed to help us take a birds-eye view at our homeschool over the past month, and the month coming forward. 

Many of us tend to look at our homeschool once a year objectively; pondering on what has worked and what hasn't, and then trying to map out how we can rejuvenate the next homeschool year and bring back the excitement again inshaAllah. 

What if we were to spend a few minutes each month doing this, instead of only at the end of each school year?

What might happen, if at the end of the month we sit comfortably with our favourite hot drink, and take a little time to reflect on the past four or five weeks?

Giving time to recognise the paydays that occurred...those little successes and triumphs that our family experienced, which usualy we pay little attention to; the maths challenge beaten without tears, the kind word spoken by a sister to a sibling, the mini book about Poetry Teatime that was secretly made to surprise you with. See the successes of your homeschool and treasure them for what they are: success.

To ponder upon the challenges of that month, addressing how we can tweak and make positive adjustments working forward into the next inshaAllah. 

To dig deep, and consciously reflect upon everything we are truly thankful for over the past month that again, rarely gets noticed.

To realise the lessons that we as an educator have learnt, not the lessons our children have- and I'm not referring to maths or history here. I'm talking about the lessons of being a homeschooler, of being a mother, of helping our children through this journey we chose for them. 

And then to take all these reflections, and use them to positively influence the forthcoming month bi'ithnillah.

This is exactly what the Monthly Homeschool Reflection pages are about.

This section is designed to assist getting our homeschool in order.

I've tried to include a variety of different homeschool forms commonly used, just pick and choose which pages you need, and leave the ones you don't.

For example, if you don't use the workbox system, you won't need the workbox planner....and if you do, you'll find several different layouts to choose from depending on the number of boxes you use (12, 10, 8, or 6).
Similarly, if you don't do morning time, leave off the Morning Time ideas page.

Print what you need, leave what you don't.

The children

  • Attendance record
  • Grade tracker
  • Reading log
  • Qur'an Tracker (includes blank days)
  • My goals (for the children to complete)
  • What I think about our homeschool (for the children to complete)
  • Know my child
  • Student goal setter 
Qur'an tracker page from the homeschool planner printable

This section aside from the trackers, is really about helping you to see your child for who they are, and using that information to help you plan your upcoming year inshaAllah.

It contains an excellent tool to help you see through your childrens eyes: My goals and what I think about our homeschool - to be completed by your children.

These pages are an invitation to your child to share their thoughts, feelings, and ideas around homeschool (no matter their age).

This invitation can provide you with a wealth of insight about your kids experiences that will certainly aid you in your homeschool plans inshaAllah.
Also when we get our children involved in the pre-planning process, we show them that their education is something they are part of, rather than being something which is *done* to them.

Our Lesson Planner


Includes:
  • Morning time week ahead 
  • Topic plan 
  • Detailed lesson plan 
  • 4 week lesson outline - double page spread to map out 4 weeks of homeschool.
  • This week's lesson planner.
Plan your lessons or unit study with a topic plan So this is where we get to the juice of the whole operation.....the lesson planning, sprinkled with some education related quotes to keep motivation levels up inshaAllah.
I love a good quote!

The Topic plan page helps you to map out a lesson, project or unit study before you pen the Detailed Lesson plan.
I liken the Topic Planning page to the pre-baked bread you can buy in the supermarket to stick in your oven at home, allowing you to put down on the kitchen table a freshly baked loaf in half the time. 

In a similar fashion, it prompts you to create an overview for your lesson or project, that you will use as a map to direct your more detailed plan. Because you have your map, the lesson planning will be a much quicker process inshaAllah. 

Lesson plan with homeschool quotes of inspirationThen you have the 4 week lesson outline, a set of 10 double pages for up to 40 homeschool weeks. Each 4 week block has an awesome quote to help you think about your kids as you map out your month. 

lesson plan with Islamic quotes

Also included is a set of 52 Weekly lesson planning pages, with a choice of up to 6 subjects or 10. Each page shows a unique (referenced) Islamic quote relating to education or parenting.

This is another of my favourite pages; the weekly family planner.

A set of 52 pages so you have one for every week of the year, each featuring a unique Hadith of the Week for you and your family to focus on.

A super cute mini weekly table to jot down any outside appointments, classes or playdates, plus a dinner menu so you can be sure that you won't be stuck staring in the kitchen cupboards trying to figure out what to eat.

Although you can see the Week Ahead Family Planner pictured above is in the binder, I'm actually going to stick mine up on the kitchen noticeboard where it will be seen by everyone inshaAllah.

Super Duper Bonus

Now to the bonus I talked about right at the start....

I get it, planning our homeschool can be overwhelming.....so I'm here to help.

I've created A Muslim Homeschool's Planning Club - a private members only Facebook group exclusively for every sister who purchases the Planner (Telegram group also available for those who prefer not to use Facebook), so that I can help you work through it in your homeschool until the end of April 2019 inshaAllah, when we'll close right before the start of Ramadan.

I'll walk you through the planner, so that you can be confident in what you are doing inshaAllah, and together as a community, champion each other on!

Not only that, but each month we'll have a Themed Focus, where we'll deep-dive into a different planning related theme.
During the month we'll explore the chosen topic through readings and guided activities.

A Muslim Homeschool's Planning Club monthly theme schedule

What you will receive:
  • Our Homeschool Binder PDF 
  • A separate PDF file for each page
    - including separate files for each page which has an alternate layout option
  • Homeschool Planning eBook Guide to help you work through the Homeschool Planner.
  • Bonus: access to the private Facebook group: A Muslim Homeschool's Planning Club; exclusively for those who purchased the planner.
  • Alternatively for sisters who prefer not to use Facebook, a Telegram group where new material / files for the Monthly Focus themes will be uploaded for you.
    (Telegram is a free app like Watsapp - however it can be accessed on the PC / laptop (without downloading anything) or any tablet, unlike watsapp which is only on the mobile.
Let's make this year our best homeschool year with a Muslim Homeschool
A Muslim Homeschool's Planning Club support also available on Telegram

Please note, your purchase is in a PDF format, not a physical product.
You will be required to print and place either inside a ring binder of your choosing, or get it spiral bound. 

The advantage of using a ring binder over getting spiral bound (I feel), is you don't need to print everything of in one go.
You have the freedom to print the pages as you need them each week or each month and just add them to the binder - this is particularly useful for the daily planning pages, and some of the lesson planning pages where you'll need to print multiple copies.

  3. Assalaam alaikum sister. I am interested in homeschool resources to help my son who is Thirteen and has been studying Quran and Arabic and general subjects at school but has become demotivated after many of his friends left the school. I am.looking for English and Arabic language resources and was wondering if you have anything for this older age group.

    1. Wa alaikum asalaam wa rahmatullah,

      Arabic resources - Have you looked at the Madina Arabic books? It is the same curriculum taught to non-Arab speakers when they enter the University of Madinah. There have been newer versions of the book published which are coloured and probably better suited to teens that the old black and white versions (the red books) - darusalaam sell a new hardback copy


      Iman's homeschool blog has some excellent resources to use alongside the madina books.


      With English - have you looked at Bravewriter?

      Its an excellent English writing program which helps to develop children's writing - you can use it as a stand alone curriculum, or use alongside any other curriculum you are following


      The website is http://bit.ly/2HZvrpD
      The store site is http://bit.ly/2o5avFb
