How to Get (almost) Everything Done in your Homeschool!

Our time is really valuable and we want to try to ensure we make the most of it. As Muslims time management is an integral part of our religion with the foundation of our 5 daily prayers helping us to structure our day. How do we build on this fundamental foundation and take ownership of our time in order to boost our productivity and get everything done in our homeschool?

everything done homeschool

In Episode 61 of the Raising Mums podcast, I share homeschool productivity hacks, to help you get it ALL done!

The key things to try and implement are to:-

Honour Your Homeschool day – say “No,” don’t schedule appointments or run errands during school hours, put away your phone.

Time block – Have a blocks of time for homeschooling, cleaning, cooking etc.

Be proactive, not reactive – Identify times in your day when things go wrong and ask why. Then you’ll be able to identify what you can do to prevent it.

The Best Ways to know if you’re Doing Enough | Homeschool Schedule

Homeschool Schedule

“Am I Doing Enough?”, this question can wreak havoc on your homeschooling schedule, no matter what stage of homeschooling you are in. It is one of the most frequent questions that we hear from homeschoolers.  When you constantly wrestle with the worry over whether or not your children are learning everything they need to learn, it can make you feel drained and question your abilities, so how do you determine whether you are doing enough in your homeschool schedule?

Homeschool schedule

In Episode 60 of the Raising Mums podcast, I share what you can do to help ensure you are doing enough in your homeschool schedule.

The key messages are to

Check state/charter school requirements for schedule and number of hours. We usually have higher standards for ourselves than other people put on us.

Are you developing key skills and reading alot?

There will be gaps in your children’s learning when they leave home, whether your homeschool or they go to mainstream school.

Your job is not to fill them with everything they will ever need to know, but just to take them from where they are, to the next step.

Look deeper into why you are questioning your homeschool schedule. Is it really a question of, “Am I enough?”

3 Reasons Why You’re NOT Consistent in your Homeschool Routine

Homeschool routine

Many homeschool mum’s have shared with us that they struggle with consistency— and they feel guilty because of it. We all know that our children need consistency in their lives. Consistency gives them a sense of security but some days, being consistent with our homeschool routine feels impossible. If you do struggle with consistency in your days, you are not alone

homeschool routine

In Episode 59 of the Raising Mums podcast, I share 3 Reasons Why You’re NOT Consistent in your Homeschool Routine

The 3 reasons why you’re not consistent in your homeschool routine:

  1. It’s not a necessity
  2. There are no deadlines
  3. You’re doing it all alone

When we’re consistent in our homeschooling efforts, the reward for that is confidence.

I’m So Lonely | Loneliness Advice for Mums

loneliness for mums

Being a mum is amazing! Being with our children every day is such a blessing, but it can sometimes feel lonely too. This podcast is inspired by a recent email we received, and if you are on the same journey and you have ever felt lonely and isolated, this loneliness advice for mums can help you too.

“Assalamu alaikkum sis. I’m very emotional and sad and crying at the moment while typing I’m homeschooling my 3yr old and nearly 7-year-old Alhamdulillah academically they are doing well but unfortunately where I’m there is not many homeschool meet-ups but still we often go here and there. I have felt lonely and feel very sad for the kids too.

In Episode 58 of the Raising Mums podcast, I share some advice on how to deal with loneliness while homeschooling.

What we really need to consider is:-

  • Is it really loneliness, or is there something else going on?
  • Overcome your fear of rejection – you are enough. You are worthy of love and friendship and meaningful relationships. You don’t need anyone else’s approval when you have your own. 
  • Do something that scares you every day
  • Serve others, in whatever form that may take
  • Connect more deeply to those who have existing relationships with
  • Take care of your physical and spiritual well-being

Teach kids about Prophet Isa

It’s that time of year again when we have to discuss Christmas with our children. It’s a source of anxiety for a lot of Muslim families.

Let me suggest 7 Ways we can Teach Kids about Prophet Isa (as) during the festive season!

In Episode 56 of the Raising Mums podcast, I share ways to navigate this holiday period with 7 Ways to Teach Children about the Prophet Isa (as).

The key takeaway points from this podcast are:-

  • Children can become confused by the different stories they hear.
  • They want and need to know the truth.
  • Misunderstandings can take them out of the fold of Islam.
  • Knowing the true story helps kids to feel confident in their Islamic identity and builds understnding with people of other faiths.

My Husband is against Homeschooling! What can I do?

Our Muslim Homeschool Book

In episode 55 of the Raising Mums podcast, we talk about what you can do if your husband is against homeschooling.

This episode was inspired by a question from a mama inside our Homeschooling course for Muslim Parents, Launch Your Homeschool.

Sister X said,

“I have spent the summer researching home education including the course. I am thoroughly convinced home education is best and that I am very passionate and capable. I’ve bought so many books….

Now my husband has become very anti-home education. He believes it’s best, however, he wonders what the point is if we aren’t definitely going to home-ed up to university (I’m saying we start with primary and see how it goes). He wonders how are our kids going to cope with the real world. Also, he cannot differentiate it from being a SAH (stay-at-home) wife, so he expects I would be doing more than if I was at work e.g. the house should be spotless, there should be three robust meals etc however if I was at work he doesn’t mind if I can’t keep up with the housework.

He thinks the sacrifice isn’t worth the benefit basically and would struggle to value my contribution when the school can do a good job for free. He is also worried that we have no family support. 

I’m at a loss of what to do and not sure how to convince him. I’m just disappointed really, I know I can’t pursue it further without his agreement, but am heartbroken not (to) try home educating when I am so devoted to the idea.”

Muslim Homeschool Curriculum: How to Use a Book of Centuries

What do we need to teach our children? Which books should we buy? What topics must we cover? Teaching history in a Muslim Homeschool can be tricky. How do we teach the whole history of mankind in a way that makes sense to children of different ages? This blog post will show you how a Book of Centuries will completely transform your Muslim Homeschool curriculum.

Muslim homeschool curriculum - Islamic history timeline book of centuries

What should be in a Muslim Homeschool Curriculum for History? 

When following a Charlotte Mason philosophy, history allows children to build connections between historical events. Our kids must understand how events relate to each other and be able to discuss the lessons which can be learnt. 

To do this, it is essential children learn the order of historical events. Understanding when things happened is just as important as what happened. In a history lesson, your children are probably reading a variety of books covering history from different periods and cultures. But how can we gather this information in a logical way for our kids?

Charlotte Mason recommended children get to know a few particular time periods very well, rather than skimming over a brief outline of everything. Children interested in a certain time period will often find themselves absorbed in a single period of history for longer. However, they need to gather information in a coherent way, while understanding how events relate to each other. 

This is where the Book of Centuries comes in. 

Muslim Homeschool curriculum

What is a Book of Centuries? 

A Book of Centuries sounds incredibly important, doesn’t it?

And it is.

It is an organised way for your children to process the historical facts learnt during their readings, read alouds, and history lessons. A Book of Centuries is an essential part of any Muslim homeschool curriculum.

The Book of Centuries is set up like a diary and contains blank pages waiting for your child to fill them in. To guide them, dates are written across the top of each page. These dates usually span from around 4000BC (the time of first recorded history) and the present day. 

A Book of Centuries becomes a household treasure. You can have one shared between your children or they can have one each for their own personal collection. Over their years of homeschooling, children will continue to add to their Book of Centuries, their book growing and evolving alongside their historical knowledge.

Their Book of Centuries will become a cherished possession which they return to years later and recall the incredible stories. Having a place to record their historical findings encourages children to engage with what they are learning. They practice how to critically decide which pieces of information are important enough to include. Their creativity is sparked as they choose how to display the information in their books. They can choose to either write, draw, or even glue pictures and diagrams!

WATCH THIS VIDEO

How to use a Book of Centuries in a Muslim Homeschool Curriculum 

Now for the interesting part.

You know how to approach history, you know how important a Book Centuries is for your child’s Muslim homeschool curriculum, but how do you use a Book of Centuries alongside your history readings?

Charlotte Mason, recommends your children spend at least one lesson per week working on their Book of Centuries and timeline. This means they spend about 20 minutes gathering what they have learnt throughout the week and adding to their book. 

To add an entry into their Book of Centuries, children locate the page with the correct year. Then, they add content to those pages to represent what they are learning. This could be done in different ways:

  1. Writing the date of birth and death of famous people throughout history
  2. Small sketches of important relics, events, or locations, such as pyramids or castles
  3. Pictures printed from the internet of famous people or events
  4. Parts of leaflets cut out from history field trips

Is a Book of Centuries just for History?

The Book of Centuries is a versatile resource that can be used in more than just History lessons.

For example, if your child reads about Salahuddin, they will come across dates of important battles and crusades. These dates would be added to their Book of Centuries, along will a small description of what happened. Your child might sketch the armour and weapons used at the time. Some children might include a map of Jerusalem and the grounds of Masjid al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock. 

This little project may spark an interest in the crusades and the ongoing fight for authority in the Holy Lands. Your child will see how long this fight has been going on. Your child will understand how many time periods have influenced a fight that is still raging today.

As we’re taught by Charlotte Mason herself:

“…it is necessary to know something of what has gone before in order to think justly of what is occurring today.” (A Philosophy of Education, Charlotte Mason)

Charlotte Mason quote - history and book of centuries

In these ways, children are building their own unique record of history in a way that not only makes sense to them but also demonstrates how events and time periods relate to each other. Children develop an intelligent sense of time and the evolution of mankind.  

Where to buy your own Book of Centuries

Now, I’ve been where you are before. I completely adored the idea of using a Book of Centuries in my homeschool. I grabbed a blank notebook and started adding dates to the top of each page, each double spread representing 100 years. 

However, this is time-consuming, and it was incredibly confusing trying to manage the time span of 6000 years! Plus, as a Muslim homeschool, it was important to me to make acknowledge the Islamic calendar and its place in the history of our world. 

Because I know how tricky designing your own Book of Centuries can be, I have developed a book for you with the dates and setup already done. 

Muslim homeschool curriculum book of centuries

When you purchase the Our Muslim Homeschool Book of Centuries, you have a blank notebook all ready for your child with:

  • Islamic dates alongside Gregorian dates at the top of each page
  • Lists of key Islamic dates
  • Further reading suggestions
  • A page of profile cut-outs for you to get started
  • A page for your chid to record their own family history
Muslim homesschool curriculum Islamic history book of centuries

This Book of Centuries will help your child engage with their Muslim Homeschool curriculum and enjoy History lessons in an exciting way. No matter the age of your children, having a book they can add to themselves, without the work being done for them, will provide a satisfying sense of achievement, inshaAllah.

Online Maths GCSE courses: Homeschooling for Secondary School

When my eldest son turned eleven, I had the alarming realisation, “What are we going to do about maths?!” Up to now, homeschooling had been very relaxed, but as we stepped into homeschooling in secondary school, the thought of one day getting him ready for Maths GCSE was terrifying! So I started to look around for online maths GCSE courses.

Thankfully, Numerise reached out and offered my son a free trial.

And we loved it so much, that we purchased the programme ourselves when the free trial expired!

Let me tell you why.

This blog-post is sponsored by Numerise.

Why chose an Online Maths GCSE course

With a house full of younger kids, my attention and energy is always divided! Despite that, I wanted to be sure that my eldest son was getting all the help he needed with his secondary education. Online maths courses allow your child to keep learning independently, even when you can’t sit down one-on-one with them as much as you’d like!

In fact, teens and tweens love the feeling of responsibility that working independently online gives them.

If you’re short on time or if you lack confidence in teaching secondary school maths yourself, an online GCSE course is a great investment.

What is Numerise?

Numerise is an online maths platform to help learners ages 10-16 years old. Whether you homeschool or not, Numerise will help your child work towards getting top marks in a Maths GCSE.

For Year 6 to Year 11, Numerise’s online courses align with the National Curriculum in the U.K. and cover the maths requirements of every exam board in England. Incredible!

With more than 40,000 questions, and 10,000 explainer videos, your older children can easily work through the lessons independently.

They also offer a free Confidence Lab filled with Information and inspiration to help build maths confidence for your child AND for you!

Why we love it!

It’s not often that your child happily goes to their maths lessons. When we started using Numerise, my eldest son would log on in his free time to continue his lessons. He loves it!

By offering XP (experience points), Achievements, Competitions, Goals and Leaderboards, teens and tweens feel motivated to keep learning.

I asked him, “Why do you like this Online Maths programme more than others?”

He told me, “The videos are clear, the questions are not too hard, and not too easy. And it’s really easy to work with.”

Perfect!

Homeschool Maths for Year 2

Maths. The word alone can make many parents anxious! As a mum who has been homeschooling her four children for many years, I’ve tried a lot of different programmes. A lot! Some were great, and some were not! In this blog post, I’ll share one of my favourite resources to teach maths to children in reception, year 1 and year 2.

Please note, this is NOT just for homeschoolers. This can help you if your children are in school too.

How we teach maths in year 2

In our house Maths has to be fun! From a very early age, children will decide what they think of a subject, and whether or not they consider themselves good at it.

That’s why we try really hard to make sure our young kids enjoy their maths lessons.

We do this by playing maths games, singing maths songs, bringing maths into our daily lives, and by using fun interactive resources like Mathseeds.

Maths for year 2 - Homeschool maths online programme

What is Mathseeds?

Mathseeds is a comprehensive online Maths programme for children ages 3-9. It teaches kids all the concepts that they need to know through carefully constructed lessons and activities.

And now they’ve but together Maths workbooks that can be used alongside their online platform, or as a stand-alone Maths curriculum.

Mathseeds Year 2 Workbooks

My first impression when looking at our Year 2 workbook was how well made it and thick it was. Flicking through the pages, I can see that it covers ALL the material needs for a full academic year, so there’s potentially no need to buy anything else! The focus of this maths programme is to help develop their core maths skills and problem solving.

As soon as my daughter saw it, her eyes light up! It’s a beautiful looking book, and the pages feel thick and well made.

Watch this Video!

Inside the workbook, there are 50 lessons, each one covering a single concept. Each concept is taught with four worksheets. It’s very comprehensive!

RELATED: Memorisation in Our Muslim Homeschool – Morning Basket Folders

It has been cleverly designed to be used alongside their online programme or as a standalone curriculum, if you do not want to use the online platform.

Maths for year 2 - mathseeds workbook review

There is a quiz after the every five lessons followed by a lovely certificate for your child.

At the front of the book, they provide a year planner to help you plan out how you’ll use the Maths curriculum throughout the year. At the back fo the book, you’ll find images for the cut and paste exercises.

And it’s not just worksheets! They also provide a intructions for optional learning activities to enrich your children maths learning.

It’s an incredibly comprehensive and well thought out programme.

Although we’ve only just begun to use these workbooks, I really appreciate that they cover everything my daughter will need for Year 2. They’re fun for her and easy for me to implement.

My daughter doesn’t want to go back to the other maths books we were using before, so it looks like we’ll be using Mathseeds workbooks for the foreseeable future!
