It’s November, and it’s time for another Monthly Homeschool favourites!
In these blog posts, I share with you some of the products and resources we have been enjoying in our homeschool this month.
As some of you may have noticed, we didn’t do an October Favourites video! Whoops! Actually, my family and I went travelling around Kenya and U.A.E that month. So we took a 3 week break from formal homeschooling, and allowed the children to benefit fully from their new experiences abroad. If you’d like to see some of our holiday photos, you can see them on my Instagram account.
This month, I have so many fun and exciting new products I want to share with you! This includes a really cool electronics kit that my kids adore, some great books we’ve been enjoying, and a gratitude journal for Muslims.
As usual, we have a GIVEAWAY running this month, so if you’d like to enter, scroll down to the bottom of this post, and enter with the Rafflecopter widget.
HOMESCHOOL FAVOURITES | November 2016

Cambridge BrainBox Electronics Kit
I was looking for an electronics kit to supplement our science lessons. This one was significantly cheaper than everything else on the market, and I think it’s great!
It really well-made, and is easy for the kids to use independently.
This kit covers most of Key Stage 1 and 2; working brilliantly as an introduction to electricity for children.
There is an easy-to-follow manual included, that not only explains how to set-up each experiment, but also explains what it shows.
The components are very easy to fit together and your children will have new circuits set up in minutes!
If you don’t believe me…WATCH THIS VIDEO!
If your children are interested in electronics, or you are planning to look at electricity as part of our homeschool curriculum, I would highly recommend this Electronics Kit by Cambrdige BrainBox.
Fitra Homeschool Journal
The Fitra journal is available in both print and digital versions from Amazon.
If you are new to home-education, or even if you are very experiences, I think that you will find the Fitra journal a really enjoyable and a useful resource.
365 days with Prophet Muhammad
The 365 Days with Prophet Muhammad has become our new favourite. The book divides the Story of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) into 365 sections; one for each day.
Finding time in our busy lives to reflect on the Blessings in our lives, is a very beneficial practice to teach to your children, and I would urge you find a way to begin this in your home.
Some families simply ask their children to say thank you to Allah before they go to sleep, others make impressive wall-art to display. I recently saw one mother who had made a Gratitude Tree, and on each leaf was written something to be grateful for.
The Gratitude Journal for Muslims is available in Softcover, Hardcover and as a Download.
You can purchase it from the Ayeina Website, or find your local distributor.
I will be giving away:
– 1 Softcover Gratitude Journal for Muslims – #AlhamdulillahForSeries from Ayeina.com (RRP: £12)
The giveaway is open Internationally.
All entrants under the age of 18 must have parental permission to enter.
Please aware that if entering from overseas, you may be liable to pay customs tax (or the equivalent), so please check beforehand.
I’ll announce the winners on THIS blog post and contact them directly through email.
I’d love to know what your family has been using this November 🙂

Interesting selections indeed! We have the 365 days with the prophet Muhammad but in Arabic and we love it as well. The alhamdulillah series seems lovely.

I find your blog very interesting and helpful.

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.

A salaam Alaakum, I enjoy your blog and YouTube videos. I admire any mom who homeschools her children. I want to but fear that I won't teach my kids as well as a certified teacher…. Did you ever have those doubts? If so, how did you overcome them? I would like to see how you manage your time and how you set up you daily schedule, thank you!
