We have officially started school again and we’re having a great time!
Although having a break is so important, we really missed the routine and structure that our homeschooling brings to our day!
I’m so happy to be sharing some exciting new books and educational resources that we’ve been enjoying this month in Our Muslim Homeschool.

Eastcolight Human Torso Set
They love seeing where all the organs and bones go… taking it apart, and putting it back together again.
It’s a fantastic hands-on way of teaching anatomy, and it has really got them excited to learn more about the human body.
It also comes with fact cards, a poster, a manual and a calorie-counting wheel. To be honest, the kids haven’t used any of these extra bits yet. They’re too interested in the model itself!
This is a book for homeschool mums, or anyone who is interested in knowing more about the Charlotte Mason method of home-education.
There is a lot of focus on nature study and on “mother culture” in this book.

This has to be one of the most inspiring books I have ever read, and I can see myself re-reading over and over again!
I enjoyed it so much, I have already purchased two more from the same author:
This is an endearing story about a little girl called Aishah who wants to bake! Her mother uses this opportunity to teach Aishah about where all the ingredients come from.
Finally, although it’s not a “tangible” thing, I really wanted to share how much we’ve been enjoying our nature walks this month.
The weather has been a little unpredictable, but it hasn’t stopped us! We’ve really been making the most the woodlands and parks around us.
Not only do my children benefit from our time outdoors, but I find that I personally need that time away from the home to unwind and reflect.
If you don’t already, I would highly recommend that you schedule some outdoor time into your homeschool routine. It has brought so much balance and peace to our family. Subhanullah!
