No Time to Homeschool? A Muslim Homeschool Schedule

muslim homeschool schedule

How long does homeschooling actually take? Do I really have time to home educate my kids? Here’s a real-life look at a Muslim Homeschool schedule…

When considering homeschooling, as parents we worry that we will have to fill so many hours of the day teaching our children. Homeschooling is not school, we are not replicating a school at home! The beauty of homeschooling is that we do not need to start at 9 am and finish at 3 pm.

Muslim Homeschool schedule

In Episode 47 of the Raising Mums podcast, I share how much time homeschooling really takes!

WATCH THIS VIDEO!

Real-life Muslim Homeschool Schedule

Homeschooling doesn’t take as long as learning in school because:

  • You’re working one-on-one, can tailor the learning to the child and can move through the material faster
  • There is no time wasted with classroom management tasks
  • Homeschooling will probably only take a few hours per child each day, depending upon their age
  • You can homeschool at whatever time suits your family’s routine

Can I Homeschool if I’m NOT a Teacher?

Many parents shy away from homeschooling as they doubt their own abilities to teach because they believe they do not have the ‘right’ qualifications. Does your level of education really determine your ability to homeschool your own children? Is the school teacher more qualified than the parent to teach their child? Do you need a degree to homeschool or is love for your children and learning enough?

homeschool teacher

In Episode 45 of the Raising Mums podcast, I discuss whether parents need qualifications to homeschool their children.

WATCH THIS VIDEO

Do I need to be a teacher to homeschool?

  • You do not need qualifications to homeschool your children
  • No teacher can match you, as a parent, in devotion, dedication, and love. You would do whatever it takes.
  • The teaching model in school is very different from homeschooling.
  • No one knows their child as well as you do.

How to homeschool in lockdown

The government announced that schools in the UK would not reopen this January 2021 for at least 6 weeks. This has thrown many families into a state of worry and, in some cases, panic as they come to terms with the fact that they will have to homeschool their children through this lockdown.

Families are concerned how this lockdown will affect their children’s education, and want to know how they can effectively homeschool them.

Parents also want to know how they’re going to be productive and get everything done, whilst also homeschooling their children.

In this episode of Raising Mums, I share a realistic and sustainable way to homeschool your children during the lockdown, and give you several time management hacks to help you stay productive during this difficult time.

How to Start Homeschooling – The Muslim Parent’s Guide

It’s hard to know where to begin when you first decide to start homeschooling.

There are so many options! It seems like a blessing to have plenty of information about homeschooling available online.

How do you start homeschooling? 

It’s not difficult to research the benefits of homeschooling for your family. It’s easy to find a multitude of options for curriculums, reading ideas and crafty activities to do with your child. 

But how do you use all that information to teach your child in the most efficient way possible?

How do you know which curriculums are best for your unique family?

How do you maintain a beneficial schedule without homeschool lessons taking over your entire life?

Is it possible to still have time for yourself when the homeschool day is done?

How do you do it all?

All these questions build up in your mind and often lead to crippling self-doubt. Do you have what it takes to handle the full responsibility of your child’s education? 

How do you finally take the plunge and start homeschooling?

Let’s talk money! How much does homeschooling cost?

If you’re trying to plan ahead, and work out if home education is a feasible dream for your family, you need to know how much it’s going to cost.

You need real figures, real numbers!

how much does homeschooling cost?

Typically if you’re searching online for the cost to home educate your children, you’ll hear a lot of advice that sounds something like,

“Homeschooling is possible for families of every budget. With careful planning you can homeschool for very little.”

And honestly, I’ve said that myself!

But after thinking about it, I realised that that statement is not very helpful at all!

What would be more helpful would be a number of how much it costs a real family to homeschool their children today.

And that’s what I’m going to do here…

I’m going to tell you how much homeschooling costs our family!

I’ve NEVER seen this done before, but in this episode of Raising Mums

I get out my calculator and talk about:
?How much does Homeschooling cost each year
? What are our biggest expenses?
? How could we reduce these costs?

Being honest about the costs of homeschooling will help you to know if homeschooling is truly a realistic ambition for your family, and it’ll help you to plan ahead.
