Sustainable Homeschooling | Secure your Homeschool for the Future

This week I was LIVE on Facebook and Instagram talking about some of the ways you can ensure you’ll be homeschooling for many more years to come insha’Allah.

I’m speaking to the mum who wants to homeschool, and is planning and preparing for this new adventure.

I’m talking to mum who homeschools now, but feels disheartened. Who feels that it’s not going the way she thought it would, and she feels like she’s failing.

I’m talking to everyone who homeschools sharing my nuggets of wisdom as to how you can continue to homeschool for many years. There are things we can do in our lives, to make homeschooling a sustainable, longterm experience for us.

Next week, Sunday 13th January 2019 at 10am, I’ll be back on Instagram and Facebook LIVE discussing, “Homeschool Under Threat| Homeschooling with a baby.”

I’m Just a Mum…Is that Enough?

This week I was LIVE on the Our Muslim Homeschool Instagram and Facebook accounts talking about a topic very common in mothers, low self-esteem. Do you ever refer to yourself as “Just a Mum?” Then this broadcast is for you!

We talked about:

  • Blame
  • My personal experience with self-doubt
  • 5 Steps to Increasing Your Feelings of Self-worth
  • Mothers with low self-esteem raise children with low self-esteem
  • Q&As

In this episode I spoke from the heart about my experience and gave my sincere advice to any mother who suffers with self-esteem issues.

These 5 steps will increase your self-esteem, so that you don’t say anymore, “I’m a just a mum.”

Instead you’ll say, “I’m a stay at home mum and it’s the best thing that could ever have happened to me!”

Here it is! Enjoy!

Preschool Learning at Home + FREE GUIDE

Muslim Preschool Learning at Home Curriculum

This week on Raising Mums, a Live broadcast on the Our Muslim Homeschool Facebook and Instagram  accounts, we were discussing “Preschool Learning at Home“.

I’ve also created a Preschool Learning Guide for you to use at home with your children. It has been adapted from the Early Years Statutory Framework, the curriculum used in the UK nurseries and schools for children under 5 years old.

Muslim Preschool Curriculum!   Teach your young children at Home with this Islamic Early Years Curriculum

This blog-post contains affiliate links. For more information see our Disclaimer.

But before you jump into the Preschool Curriculum, watch the video, or listen to the podcast above.

In that episode I introduce the our Early Years Learning Guide and talk about:

  • What is most important to establish in these early years.
  • Learning Objectives to work towards at home, for children upto the age of 5 years old.
  • Book recommendations to learn more about homeschooling

So here it is!

WATCH THIS VIDEO!

Please note, the image in this video was unusually poor. You may wish to listen to this episode of Raising Mums, rather than watch it!


To help you and your children, I’ve created this hand-out for you.

It’s completely FREE! I don’t even want your email address!

Click on the link to download:

** FREE Early Years Learning Guide **

How to Use your Early Years Guide

This Early Years Learning Guide has been adapted from the Early Years Statutory Framework, that is used across the UK in nurseries and with reception aged children. I have tried to simplify it and make it more relevant to a typical homelife.

In this FREE guide, I set out learning objectives that you can work on with your children aged 3-5 years old.

Print it out, display it on your fridge or calendar, or just upload it onto your phone. Every morning, take a look at it, and try to work on one “box” or learning category that day.

You do not need to hit every category each day. Just try to work towards one of the learning objectives each day, and cover all the boxes at least once every week.

I hope it gives you some confidence and a sense of purpose as you begin to take charge of your children’s education.

I show more details on how to use it in the video above, so you’ll want to watch it!
