    My daughter is near 4 years old alhamdulillah. I already followed the first 2 steps from her birth and she always wants more! but I don't know if she is ready, I will read "Reading readiness". We have a "qira'atu" workbook to start.
    Like you, I believe the most important is the first step, loving books and loving reading! and when they know reading, they can easily access to so much enjoyment and knowledge mashaAllah!
    May Allah bless you all!

    Dear, I can relate to what you are going through. I long to go on a walk early in the morning after fajar Salah. Sometimes I just want to be alone to read or type a blog post uninterrepted! When I'm flustrated, I start counting my blessings. Things which we are flustrated about are things which others long for. Kids would grow up soon. Then, even if we want they will not stick to us like this. So, I decide to enjoy the mess, tantrums, noise and every thing else connected to my kids (Better smile than cry)

    Assalam alaykum sister, i came across your blog a few months back. Alhamdulilah your blog was a wake up call and a call to action. I always read to my son (and he loved books but also TV) but was not sure how to move from teaching him the alphabet to reading. We are not planning on homeschooling so although i wanted to personally teach him to read i always thought i couldn't and will wait till he started school. But alhamdulilah you showed me what was possible and we are well on our way by the help of Allah. Alhamdulilah I got flash cards and we have now completed the set 1 phonics. I got the read with biff.. set. So inshaallah i need to just start encouraging him to read it. Do you advise he knows some sight words first? And how do i go from teaching him the phonics to encouraging him to read. Jazakillahu khayran

    Assalamualaikum Sister I transitioned my public school third grader to now homeschool and it was scary! Now im super happy and so is he. I just gave birth to a new baby so I have been tired and emotional but i am doing my best. I keep telling myself even an hour of learning is better than nothing at all. I have picked out educational movies and easy to pick up worksheets for days when i cant teach because of my newborn. I just want to say thank you, i dont know anyone else that is homeschooling in my neighborhood or community. Alhumdulilah i am still learning. My friends and family look at me weird and say oh it's a lot but since our transition, the hardest part really is to maintain energy to do everything outside of teaching, you are so right MashaAllah. May Allah reward our household with patience and knowledge as he has rewarded yours inshaAllah. JazakaAllah Sister This is a great blog Salam

    We really need to get out more! Now that Nusaybah is walking, it will insha'Allah be easier to get out and about. The kids had eye tests recently and the optometrist was telling about how atleast an hour a day outside does so much good for their eyes as they train their eyes to look at things in the distance as opposed to being close to books, or screens or anything else indoors that is quite near to them.

    Yes, we do need more and more Muslim toy and they need to be up in competition with general toys sold in markets. There should be variety, good quality, and strong branding. Because kids see Disney toys, movie merchandise, and they are more prone to be attracted towards them. I found Ibraheem Toy House pretty nice. My favorites are the little prayer mats. It is very important that kids play and learn! Another favorite was the stuffed dolls – soft Maryum is my favorite.

    Ma shaa Allah! I don't have any children but have always thought of home-schooling, especially considering the standards of the education system in the US. I'm not really sure how the concept would would in Saudi, but the butterfly habitat is a great idea even for a summer or after school activity. I've always been fascinated by butterflies (I blame Mariah Carey) but their transformation is astounding. Yusuf and Aamina are adorable, I love seeing toys geared towards Muslim children, far too often toys (especially for girls) are over sexualized and completely inappropriate!

    Watching caterpillars grow! That is so cool! I compliment you for the bravery though. Anything that moves scares the daylight out of me! I have seen those talking dolls before! They sell those at the ICNA MAS Convention every year here in Baltimore. Last year I contemplated buying one for my niece but she was a newborn then. Maybe this year insha'Allah

    Salam sis, jzk Allah for sharing all this. Wish I had come across before ramadan.
    I have 2 young boys 5 and 3 mashallah tabarakallah. This year I wanted to make ramadan fun for them so I decided to blew balloons for the last 10 days so they pop each day and receive a deed and a treat inside. We bought a tent for Itikaf so we sit and reflect and say little prayers. Weve visited the library and borrowed books on ramadan and Eid.
    I bought a yusuf doll and made him our ramadan guest. Kids were delighted! I printed some resources from smartark like a simple counting date game. I made a 'welcome ramadan' bunting with fabric and felt. I also printed some arabic picture flashcards for 30 days from a site (cant remember which) which can be used to find in the Quran.
    We made iftar platters for the surrounding neighbours and little tags explaining what Ramadan is all about ๐Ÿ™‚
    Might try and purchase the cookie cutters in sha Allah.
    Really inspired by your homeschooling. May Allah reward you.

    Would love a set of the books so I can start with my kiddies!!
    Jzk Allah khair

    Ramadan Mubarak Gemma. Thank you so so much for featuring With A Spin's cookie cutters as your Ramadan favorite. We are so glad you were able to play around and make cookies and watermelon salad using our cookie cutters. They really are fun to use on molding food as well as for arts and crafts projects.

    Hope you will be able to use our harmony set during the coming months as you teach your children about loving everyone from all background and the different holidays people celebrate around the world.

    Thank you,

I am currently using ordinary parents guide to teach reading which he likes and I also use Oxford reading tree books for him to but he really does not like reading these when we sit down to read he doesn't show interest and just wants to go off. He likes being read to and enjoys activites to do with reading but does not like to read the actual book himself any advice would be much appreciated jazakAllah

      Subhanullah! I use exactly those books with my son. Perhaps you could try easy readers that are about his interests. My son was very into Dinosaurs, so I went onto Amazon and bought loads of second hand easy readers about dinosaurs! He enjoyed them much more than Biff and Chip! I've also written a blog post about how I taught my son to read. You might find it helpful insha'Allah: https://ourmuslimhomeschool.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/teach-your-four-year-old-to-read.html

    assalaamu alaikum, ma shaAllah. This is my first time visiting your blog. I love this post! both of my children are quite young so we haven't started formal homeschooling, but I love what you've shared with us, and it really does help build my confidence as I gather ideas from various homeschoolers. Especially Muslimahs who are homeschooling. May Allah bless your efforts.
    To answer your questions… while I am new to your page and I haven't explored everything you have to offer yet, I personally love routine videos and blog posts, day in the life kind of things. They really help me decide what I want to or am able to incorporate into my family's life.
    I'm fairly new to the homeschooling community as in I haven't implemented much of what I've been exposed to, but I do know there are already a lot of resources out there, and I'm just trying to gather as much information as I can for the time being, so anything about how to jump into homeschooling helps! Also, talking about the pitfalls or difficulties involved in homeschooling, which would help those of us starting out so that we have an idea of what to expect and how to work through those obstacles if and when we hit them.

    Looking forward to your next post!

    Hey.. I am new here but I've been following you in Instagram for months now & I love your work! I am from Maldives and homeschooling is kind of new here.. Almost no one I know, homeschool here but I adore the idea of homeschooling.. I studied teaching but I honestly don't want to go teach in schools, leaving my son at day care.. Instead I believe homeschooling is the perfect option for both of us.. So yeah your blog is really helpful.. Thank you so much โค๏ธ
    First of all I like the idea of wrapping up the school supplies and giving it to the kids.. It's an amazing idea and plus point is we get to see their beautiful smiles!!!
    I would like to know more about how to and when to start homeschooling.. And also since my boy is still a toddler, can you suggest ways of getting him to get closer to Islam?
    Other than that please suggest more books I can read, regarding homeschooling and parenting.
    I'd like to see how you prepare for the day and how you select activities and all..
    Thanks again

    I loved watching this Gemma ๐Ÿ™‚ It was so wonderful to go about your day with you! I am still on the fence about homeschooling – (atleast for now) for one of the reasons you addressed – your youngest needing to be occupied. Nusaybah really needs to participate in an activity with us or we can't do anything at all. That even includes reading! So we're struggling with that at the minute. How do you occupy Khadijah on the other days when your husband is at work? x

      I totally understand you concern about that. Even today, we found it difficult to keep her entertained so we could work. We try to get work that requires quiet (like reading) or any crafts done whilst she is sleeping. I try to get her involved in group activities where possible. This toddler phase will pass, so I just try to relax and accept that it's not going to be "perfect". All I can do is my best!

    The gratitude journal for kids seems like a great idea. We read from easy reader library books of elephant and pig. They have a bunch and it's easy to read at their level. Also we were going to do a gratitude scavenger hunt once I figured out what to look for that the kids are grateful for but I think doing a gratitude journal daily would really go hand in hand with that as well.

    Subhanallah mashallah I’m amazed at how thoroughly you homeschool AND have time to run such a successful and information rich blog!
    Regarding explaining compassion-how about making some simple packages for homeless people? Homeless people can look quite scary but showing compassion -I think- is about being sympathetic and helpful to everyone despite it maybe feeling initially uncomfortable. Because it’s easy to feel compassion in some situations and not others…
    Or you could donate items to local refugee families? Or sponsor a child? We go through action aid as you get a letter and drawing from your sponsored child every few months (probably dependent on country and postal system!) and we write letters back. More of a long term compassion project but could also involve learning about sadaqah!

      For Charlotte Mason, I would recommend you read the books she wrote herself, “The Original Homeschooling Series” (http://amzn.to/2qNKxo5). It’s a long book! For Classical homeschooling, I like “The Well Trained Mind” (http://amzn.to/2ritX3e). If you’re interested in the Montessori Approach, again I would recommend reading the works of Maria Montessori, “The Absorbent Mind” (http://amzn.to/2rj0beN).If you’ve already read all of those, please feel free to email me, and I’ll send you the title of other books I’ve enjoyed!

      I’d also like to add A Thomas Jefferson Education. It’s quite friendly with other methods, but gives some great ideas along the way. As for unschooling, I can’t say that I have read any of these (yet), but books by John Holt are classics in that movement, and I’ve heard good things about the book Free to Learn.

      Hope that helps!

    I have these Arabic playdough cutters. The kids love them and learn as they play.

    Cooking is great for kids. My teenage son wanted a cake for iftar the other day so I told him why don’t you bake it? As he was mixing in the ingredients, he was asking what’s the bicarb of soda for? Why do we need the squeeze of lemon in a cake? Then he answered, oh the bicarb is a base and the lemon is the acid so the two reacts and makes air bubbles for the cake to be light. Spot on son!

    Salaamu alaykum. I thought you used Charlotte Mason. Do you still? I didn’t know you do early academics and then use computers for 2-4 years old too. I thought it was just play at this age. I haven’t started teaching my kids to read yet. But, I think I can let my 3 year old try the trial, because I trust your opinion. Thanks for sharing.

      Walaykum assalaam. Yes we are still following the guidance of Charlotte Mason. In her works, she advises parents to delay formal academics until children are 6 or 7. However, she does advise parents to begin to teach pre-reading skills (like letter recognition) earlier through play like writing letters in a tray of sand. Isn’t that a lovely idea!
      Reading Eggs is playful learning. We primarily use Reading Eggs with my 5 year-old, and my toddler just watches! I will probably allow her to use it once she is closer to 4. However my eldest son did use the programme when he was 3.
      It really does depend on the nature of the child. They’re all different!

    We believe strongly in the first step too, and have a house full of books. We read to our kids often and also model a love of reading books ourselves. We have never used any kind of reading curricula, though. All of our children learned to read quite naturally with just reading to them often, talking about how the words go together, and playing simple games I made up (such as concentration style games matching simple words with their pictures, or spelling words with letter tiles).

    My oldest child read her first word (boo) at age 3 and was reading fluently by 4. My next three children all read at 5 years old, some earlier in that year and some closer to 6. My last child is nearly 6 and not reading yet but I have seen how easily it will fall into place as soon as she is ready and she is showing signs that it will click soon.

    As a mother who has been homeschooling for some time (my oldest has now graduated), I can promise that it doesn’t honestly matter if children read at 4 or 7. When they do learn, they quickly catch up. You can’t tell any difference now between my 19 year old who read at 3 and my 17 year old who read at nearly 6. They both love to read and write, and are both intelligent young women. Their younger brothers were the same, and I’m sure my little girl will also be the same.

    The important thing is not to teach reading early but to teach a love of books and learning from the start. Have faith and as long as you can maintain that love of books and learning, the rest is easy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Salaam Jemma. I was wondering what was your experience of basing your curriculum on the well trained mind. I noticed that this year you are not including it in your curriculum. Thanks

      Salaam Hasina. Yes, we initially followed the well-trained mind but have switched over to a Charlotte Mason approach. The WTM is an excellent curriculum. It’s very thorough and uses some great books, but it didn’t suit my children. They found the program too structured and didn’t allow for enough time to play and go outside. However, I still return back to the WTM for book and resource recommendations.

    Hi,
    When I started homeschool with my daughter last year we did a lot of math. She loved sorting things by size, she loved counting and then going a step ahead and putting 1 more or 1 less. I had to have many different activities ready for her each day for math. Now we have bought Fred (life of Fred) into our homeschool and she loves it. thank you for letting us know about CTCmath, I have signed up for the free trial and it looks amazing. I can’t wait for my daughter to try it.

    Asalamu Alaikum,
    You have listed very useful advice here, thank you. I am also teaching my 5yo ARABIC and learning the meanings for myself. Its very strange, I think, that we get taught how to recite the Quran but aren’t taught the meaning. I want my child, InshAllah, to be able to read, understand and speak the Arabic language.
    Once again thank you for the amazing ideas! I am sure to write them down and use them in my homeschool.

    Asalamaoalaikom,

    Thank you for your post, as always it is very instructive.
    We speak 2 languages at home and my son (2 year old) got a third one from his part time daycare. However none of them is Arabic, which we want him to learn for religious reasons. So I am thinking about using some of your ideas to introduce Arabic even if I donโ€™t speak it myself, after all we can learn together. Does Charlotte Mason mention a limit regarding how many languages should be taught at once, in order to avoid confusion? Or is it the more the better?

    JazakaAllah kheir.

      26/12/2017 at 12:12 pm (8 months ago)

      It’s a term used by Charlotte Mason to mean “telling back”. For example, I would read a page to my son from his history book, and he would have to tell back, or narrate to me, in his own words what he remembers from that page. Then I wold write it down for him, or he would write it himself.

    Instead of trying to fill every โ€œemptyโ€ space and time slot in my life, I am embracing the silence. Instead of doing more and more, Iโ€™m doing less but with more meaning and more heart…

    Hits right home. Sometimes we have such huge expectations from ourselves that we forget that we don’t HAVE to fulfil them all. The unhealthy self-expectations that rise out of comparisons with other perfectly designed lives of other mums…a break from social media alone can cut down a huge chunk of such silly expectations…

      Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my blog post. Yes, I completely agree. Social media can be a real trial for many. Seeing the plethora of perfectly manufactured and staged images can lead to feeling of inadequacy in us. Social media has altered the way we interact as a society and, I feel, made us LESS HUMAN….But that’s another blog post insha’Allah!!!

      Alhumdulillah! For children of 2 years-old I would focus on reading aloud to them as often as possible, give them plenty of time outdoors playing and begin teaching them simple Islamic manners (saying salaamz, JazakAllah khayr, eating with right hand etc.). In my humble opinio, you don’t need to worry about anything more structured at this stage. Perhaps start thinking about that at 4-5 years old.

      Ehe children can take their gcse’s and a levels when they are ready, I actually know a lot who have already passed their a levels by age 16 and received a place at Oxford university… home ed kids learn more faster than schooled children. They also attain more life skills and the ability to interact with people of all ages.

    Salamu alaiqum sister. I have been home educating my kids for many years now (oldest will be 14 next month) but recently I have found the home ed families have disappeared and we’re not Muslim either. How do you find kids for your kids to interact with? (My husband is alone here and we aren’t part of the “Muslim community”…) my oldest daughter’s are preparing to go to college to do their gcse’s but would like groups for my younger kids.
