Homeschool Planning For Muslim Mums

Homeschool Planning workshop for muslim mums

One thing I would say when it comes to planning homeschool, is try to make it a pleasurable experience for yourself. Give yourself time to do it, ideally undisturbed while the kids are busy, in bed, or off being entertained by Dad. Having this quietness without distraction is going to help you to focus and enjoy the experience. Grab your favourite drink, resources and planner. Set yourself up so you have everything you need in front of you at hand, and you're set to go. 

But what if you're not too sure on effective methods for homeschool planning? What if you don't know where to start or what you need? 

If you're looking for a homeschool planning 101, I'm your girl. I'm excited to be opening up the planning masterclasses from the Homeschool With Confidence 16-week course, to offer a 2-day workshop if you didn't want to sign up for the whole course series.

When it comes to homeschool, anxiety often flairs up when we feel we are not in control because we don't know what we should be doing. And an anxious mum makes for a stressful homeschool experience. I know myself, when I have everything set in order and ready, the week runs smoothly Alhamdulillah. When I don't, then my anxiety monster cranks his weight heavy upon my shoulders. 

One thing I have learned over a decade of home educating is that planning doesn't have to be hard. Nor does it need to take forever to do. Certainly, you don't want to be spending more time preparing your lessons than it takes the kids to actually get through them. That would be madness! Homeschool planning can even be quite fun....yes, it can. Having a plan gives you a roadmap. It isn't inscribed upon a stone tablet that you're unable to deviate from. If you come across a more scenic route you're free to take it. But having the map helps you to find direction. This is what homeschool planning does. It offers a guide to allow you to move toward your objectives but doesn't need to enslave you. 

Over two weeks, I'll share with you some simple methods for homeschool planning so that you can feel empowered and in control insha'Allah. I'll show you how to plan using my printable planner that you'll receive as an attendee as well as introduce you to how you can create your own custom made planner to meet all your unique needs, using an ordinary notebook.

Let's take a look at what we'll cover over the two masterclasses bi'ithnillah....

Knowing your children so you can homeschool plan

Class 1: Knowing Your Child


In this first session, we'll lay the foundation with what I call the primer to successful planning: knowing your children. 
Your children are at the centre of your homeschool efforts, so we'll begin with them in mind and work through some gentle exercises together to help you figure out who your little people are so you can equip them with what they need as you put your plans together later. 
By the end of the class, you will have decided what kind of planner you will want to use (because there isn't a one-size-fits-all) together with having a clearer picture of each of your children's needs and objectives or goals for the next 12 months.

Class 2: To Plan Or Not To Plan


Our second session will walk you through using the printable planner as well as show you how to plan without a pre-made planner using your own individual customised notebook or journal so you have a choice on what suits you best.
We will explore:
  • Setting up your printable or custom planner
  • Address the differences between yearly, monthly and weekly planning options
  • Monthly Relective planning
  • 4 week lesson outline to map out an overview of 4 weeks of homeschool
  • Topic planning / designing your own lesson
  • Planning without a plan...because sometimes life happens!
  • Example lesson plans using both the pre-made planner and customised journal
