How to Teach Ages 3 - 7 - Online Workshop for Mums

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم




We had a Mums Workshop on the topic "What to Teach Children Ages 3 - 5" at the beginning of the year and Alhamdulillaah the response was overwhelming and the feedbacks have been encouraging as it has benefitted many homeschooling and non-homeschooling families. Mums and even teachers are still signing up for this workshop and benefitting Alhamdulillaah.


With that workshop, mums became familiar in detail the content to teach. 

The next question is "How to Teach"? I have been asked again and again,
"How exactly should we explain to our children"
"How do we make them understand concepts",
"Are they able to take in what I say?",
" I have never taught, I am not a teacher, I have no clue if I really could teach, Can I homeschool without knowing the basics of teaching?"
"How can I keep them engaged without making it a boring affair while I teach?"
and that most important bottom-line question
 "How do I Teach?".  


I have been a teacher in mainstream education for over 20 years now, Alhamdulillaah. I bring with me the experience of teaching in a mainstream school in a classroom environment since the age of 16. I underwent professional teacher training and implementation methods. However with all that, when I started homeschooling, would you really believe if I say, I was cracking my brain as to how would I teach my child at home!!!

And would you believe if  I say that the strategies and methods and techniques that I used in my homeschool for teaching were totally different from what I successfully taught and implemented in a mainstream classroom environment?

The classroom environment is different indeed. I would say teaching in a classroom environment is less challenging than teaching in a homeschool environment. 

The classroom is something set, and the atmosphere is predictable and generally, the system is rigid that children have no choice but to pay attention to the teacher. You are full time on that ONE job of teaching in a classroom and you have all the time to do ONLY that. So what's the problem!!? 

Now, think of your home. You have work to do 24/7 at home Alhamdulillaah. Teaching or homeschooling your children is just a fraction of the work you do for that day. You do not have the luxury the teacher has in a school to create out of the norm lesson plans. You do not have that pin-drop silence the teacher experiences when she enters the classroom. You do not get that much-needed break time to refresh yourself where the teacher enjoys in the staff room. You do not get a substitute teacher to take over your teaching when you are sick like the teacher in the school where she is able to get her sick leave and relax. These are very few challenges to highlight!

So what is the solution? How do you teach in your homeschool? The solution:


  • Be an intelligent homeschooler. 
  • Use teaching techniques that would require less time and preparation
  • Identify the best teaching mechanics
  • Work on quality rather than quantity
  • Embrace ethical teaching skills
  • Know the very exact teaching methods that would help your homeschool
  • Know how to teach with simplicity
  • Know your strengths and weaknesses. 
  • Understand what teaching methods bring age-appropriate success
  • Know the implementation of those teaching strategies

Well, now I know what is running in your mind! How do I know all of this? Where do I get the information? 
There are plenty of courses and workshops on teacher training and professional development. However, I am yet to find a teacher training course that exactly tell you how to teach in your homeschool, for that matter I am yet to find a course that would tell you how to teach with real-time demonstrations. Even some of the university courses just give you the frameworks and outlines for you to formulate your own teaching methods. You may get notes upon notes, however, I personally feel the real-time "How to Teach", is either kept a secret or expected to be understood on your own, which is really frustrating for someone who is looking for information to start work!!! 


So this is what my next online workshop for mums/mums to be and even for teachers would deal with Inshaa Allaah. 




What would this workshop cover?

This workshop will be on sharing my knowledge, training, and experience on teaching for the last 20 years, Islaamically and academically as a homeschooler, an online instructor, and mainstream school teacher. 

This workshop will provide you with the following in order to equip you to be an intelligent homeschool teacher, teacher, and facilitator to cultivate the children along with your other responsibilities. 

  • Various Teaching Mechanisms to make connections to children's lives, to provide experiences to the outcomes, to design your teaching to interest your students, and to build and sustain a learning community in and outside your home. 
  • Innovative teaching methods such as teaching through flipping classrooms, collaboration, creative teaching, and much more.
  • Easy Teaching Tips and Hacks to make your life easier as a busy homemaker cum teacher.
  • Guidelines and Teaching Methods from the Quráan and the Sunnah as taught to us by the scholars and the students of knowledge will be integrated to all of the above teaching mechanisms and methods to flourish in your teaching seeking the blessings of Allaah. 
  • Fully engaging real-time demonstrations on "How to Teach". 
  • Detailed in-depth PDF printer-friendly notes to refer back any time. 
  • Practical Assignments to try out with guidelines. 
  • Q and A Session to clear your doubts.
  • A Certificate of completion for those who complete the assignments. 


Private WhatsApp Homeschool Support Group






Did you know that we have a special online space to support each other? When you sign up for this workshop you get to join this FREE support group which is for sisters who join me for any of the Mums online workshops. 

This private WhatsApp group is special because it does not overwhelm you, it is not flooded with text and chit chats that would waste your time, rather it is a structured support group with organized activities and discussions extending throughout after the workshops, reminding you of the contents and continuing to develop your skills and professional development as a homeschooler, teacher and parent inshaa Allaah.  

Here is a feedback of the WhatsApp group and this is almost the same feedback we receive from all members by the mercy of Allaah alone!

"Alhamdulillah, this is by far the best and most beneficial homeschooling group that I have been on mashaAllah. JazakAllah khayr for taking so much time and thought into topics and creating beautiful content and activities. All your effort is so much appreciated, may Allah Subhanahu was Ta'aala grant you aafiyah, barakah in time and tawfeeq and steadfastness always. Aameen."

Nurture Islaam Pre Kinder Pack - A Unique Curriculum Pack

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم




If you have been a reader/follower of my blog for the past 10 years, you will remember our very first Preschool Pack that I did with my first daughter Maimoonah and then shared with many of you. Many homeschooling families did that "Islaam is my Life Preschool Curriculum" along with Maimoonah and we really enjoyed every bit of it. 

I remember the amount of time, energy and the frustration I went through at that time looking for resources to supplement this curriculum that is aligned with the Islaamic morals and values. And after 10 years many of those resources that were online are no more and of course, over the 10 years, things have changed so much.


Fast forward. 10 years now, by the mercy of Allaah we are pleased to introduce the "one of its kind", Nurture Islaam Pre Kinder Curriculum Pack (Digital) which is suitable for ages 3 - 5. 

Alhamdulillaah, Nurture Islaam Pre Kinder Digital Curriculum Pack is really one of my dreams come true. I always wanted to build a solid full curriculum for early years to use with my own children.

Ten years ago when I looked for such a curriculum I just could not find it anywhere even though I was ready to pay the price for it.

This Curriculum Pack comes with the knowledge and experience I gained as a teacher, administrator of a school and a homeschooler.


Overview
Nurture Islaam Pre Kinder Curriculum Pack is a “Digital Download”. It is NOT a printed pack.

Nurture Islaam Pre Kinder Curriculum Pack is a “Theme Based” curriculum.

The full curriculum is designed based on the EYSF, Common Core Preschool and Kindergarten Standards and it is fully Islaam integrated. 

This curriculum can be used for a period of Two Years starting from Ages 3 - 5 or depending on the ability and level of the child. Additionally, the theme-based resources can be used even after 5 years till around 9 years for Islaamic and Social knowledge.

Completing this curriculum will make your little one ready to start on Year 1 or Grade 1 academically at the age of 5 or 6 Inshaa Allaah.


This Curriculum Covers the Following Subjects:
  • Circle Time
  • Islaamic Studies
  • English Language/Letter of the Week
  • Mathematics
  • Social Studies/Environmental Studies

Reviews
Read the many reviews if this pack at the following links on the comments of these posts.

Here are few 


"May Allah bless Umm Maimoonah and accept this tremendous deed from her. After just 2 weeks of using this pack my pre kindergartener is excited about learning! So are her younger sisters that are two years and one year old. They beg me every day "Can we do school?" , "Can we learn about the colours of Islam?" They love school time and they'll do it at any part of the day or night!. This curriculum is worth faaar more than what you spend. Umm Maimoonah makes learning about Islam included in secular school topics and it really embodies Islam being an entire way of life that we practice 24/7. Sometimes you wonder how pre schoolers can learn through play without Music, or pictures with eyes or made up pretend stories. Well, this is it! It's a fun and inviting curriculum with excellent and authentic resources for our young Muslim children where you will never have to substitute anything because of a non-Muslim concept! If you lack organization? Umm Maimoonah has you covered as well, she includes organizing tools for the parents as well as detailed lesson plans and instructions. Literally, all you have to do is download, prep, and teach. My mind is at ease after investing in this. You even have access to a WhatsApp group with other mothers using the pack to share ideas, struggles and triumphs. All I know is that whenever I ask "Who created everything" and my 13 MONTH OLD yells from across the room "Allah!" because she picked up things from our lessons. I can only sit and make so much duaa for our sister. May She be rewarded for every ounce of good that our families attain and may this deed weigh heavy on her scale. Ameen!"



"Assalamualaikum I m also using this curriculum for my 4 yr 10 months old son. Just after a week of using this, he was so excited about learning. And he really loves every subjects and activity. He wants to study all days round in a week. Before taking this curriculum I was trying to teach but he was not at all interested to sit learn. Alhamdulillah may Allah bless Umm Maimoonah for her tremendous work. My son started to think n apply in many things after started learning. He enjoys every moment of studying this. As a mother, I too enjoy by teaching my son a lot."



"I am also using this curriculum for my 3.5 years old and he is loving it, the best part is its all in one place, everything you need and more. many variations of things are there for whichever way you want to use the materials. it is such a comprehensive curriculum with lots of thoughts and efforts put in it. I really hope and wish that many people take advantage of this curriculum and may Allah put lots of barakah in all the efforts Umm Maimoonah is putting."


"I have started Umm Maimoonah's PreK Nurture Islam pre-kinder pack. Alhamdulillah. It is everything I could have asked for. Designed with amazing discipline and sophistication, this pack offers everything from Circle time, to lesson plans, worksheets, activities, resource list,... and support. Umm Maimoonah is lovely, supportive and understanding when it comes to helping with the curriculum. The level of creativity and comprehensiveness is worth going for it. It provides us, as parents, flexibility to choose what to introduce to the kids, depending on their mood and interests.

I am glad that I invested in such a wonderful pack for my son. May Allah reward you with best in this world and hereafter."


"Alhamdulillah this pack is such a blessing. I and my daughter love it. She has learned so much that my other kids never learnt at this age. SubhaanAllah Umm Maimoonah has covered all or most of the aspects of pre-K education. She is learning Hadith, Adab, Quran, writing, tracing, general knowledge, knowledge of Allah, math, reading and art."

Overcoming the Struggles of Homeschooling

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم




Homeschooling is not a bed of roses! You may know it by now, as many social media posts you see these days are trying to indicate this pretty often! Have you ever wondered why suddenly homeschoolers are opening out and trying their best to convey the message that it is not a rosy affair?

When I first embarked on our homeschool journey ten years ago all I could see on the internet was blog posts and images showing how much work homeschoolers do and everything seemed so effortless. The flow of their work portrayed no bumps in their school year. It all looked perfectly planned and implemented work. I could only see how happy the homeschooling families are. Subhanallah! No doubt this did give me motivation, courage and determination to go ahead with my homeschooling journey! 

However, when I started homeschooling I began to sense the coming struggles ahead! I used to wonder why I never saw the other side of the picture before. I used to feel maybe I am doing the wrong thing somewhere down the line, as the blog posts I read did not have anything that I am experiencing nor did I understand that the reason why no one ever spoke about these struggles in their homeschooling blogs. I even met few of the homeschooling mums in person and they never indicated to me of such struggles. I was confused why? 

Then I figured out the reasons people did not want to talk about the backend struggles of homeschooling! It was mainly because they did not want the dark side of the story to influence the rest of the homeschoolers to give up this already cloudy concept in many of their societies. And they did not want to portray themselves as failures to their readers. And some refuse to accept that such struggles affect them. Additionally, many homeschoolers blogged their journey so that the homeschooling children will one day read their records when they are older and they did not want them to go down the not so great memory lane. It made sense to me.

Now the next question was, how am I going to overcome these struggles that no one is talking about? Alhamdulillaah as always I turned to Allaah to guide me! And He did not leave me alone. I put my trust in Allaah, as I knew He has a plan and He is the best of planners. I started this journey after consulting Him, so I knew whatever comes He would guide me right along. So what really helped me was to understand all of these homeschool struggles and connect back to the purpose of our creation. I tried and still try to find the solution in Islaam, in the commands of Allaah. Alhamdulillaah.

And the reason why so many homeschoolers are talking about the struggles these days is something to worry! Mainly because the amount of emails I receive from our sisters is alarming. They are going through severe depression because of these struggles. They are experiencing anxiety. They are unable to control their anger. They are doubting themselves and losing self-esteem and self-confidence. When calamity strikes such as some illness, Sihr or divorce they are unable to cope with the homeschooling struggles. They are crying within them just because the family or society is questioning their decision and action. The victim no doubt in all of this situation is the homeschooled child primarily who does not understand the reasons for the victimization. And of course, the mother itself is someone who needs to be guided and protected and helped to come out of this situation.


I am happy to receive emails from sisters opening up their struggles to ask naseehah as this helps me to help them Inshaa Allaah. Even though my time is extremely restricted I have not let one email pass by without replying Alhamdulillaah and I ask Allaah to help me to keep to this. This is because I FEEL what is going through at the other end. And I wish for the sister what I wish for myself. 

However, I know there are many more sisters who are not reaching out. Suppressing all of their feelings and struggles and in fact suffering within them. Sometimes not even accepting that they are struggling. This has led to extreme outcomes and we seek refuge with Allaah alone. Moreover, sisters are reaching out to Muslims or non-Muslims looking solutions not knowing that some of such materials and ideas are in fact alien to Islaam and can lead them to further disaster. May Allaah protect our sisters. Ideologies and solutions to homeschooling struggles are presented so innocently that unknowingly and cleverly the very concepts and theories that we do not want our homeschool to be influenced begin to creep in. The scholars have advised us that if you have not acquired firm knowledge of the religion then NOT TO Study the famous subject "Psychology". This is because if you do not know your religion you will fall prey to the man-made concepts and theories and this will turn you away from the fundamental beliefs of Islaam. 

All of the above made me realise the need for a Homeschooling workshop on "Overcoming the Struggles of Homeschooling". Alhamdulillaah Nurture Islaam Mums Workshops have always reached its full maximum capacity of participants by the Mercy of Allaah alone. And I thought this time to deal with the struggles of homeschooling with a difference.

We would not only be identifying the unique struggles of each one of us individually but we would most importantly work on setting a work in progress to overcome these struggles. This will not be a workshop to just listen and take notes rather it would be something to assist you to accept and go forward and make you come out of the struggles eventually bi idhnillaah. How are we intending to do this?


  • We will give you reasons and examples to understand that YOU are not alone.
  • We will help you to realize and motivate you linking back to the purpose of your creation and the Mercy of Allaah and eventually understand our struggles in the light of the hadeeth of the Messenger of Allaah "" Indeed amazing are the affairs of a believer! They are all for his benefit; If he is granted ease of living he is thankful; and this is best for him. And if he is afflicted with a hardship, he perseveres; and this is best for him."  [ Muslim ]
  • We will give you real-life stories of homeschooling mums who are overcoming their struggles as a single mum, as a single mum and a businesswoman, as mums of active boys, as mums of special needs children, as mums who are caring for their sick husbands, as mums afflicted with illness or Sihr, as mums who are working fulltime, as mums who are having babies one after the other, as mums who have no support or having severe social pressure and much more.
  • We will take from their lives tips, hacks and advice as well as acceptable theoretical and practical solutions from the point of secular industry experts and workaround an action plan for YOUR struggle.
  • We will share with you the struggles and success stories from homeschooled children told by themselves. We will use their advice and make a yet another course of action to get your kids to achieve success inshaa Allaah. 
  • Do you know that accepting certain things and understanding tiny concepts can make a huge change in you and your children struggling while homeschooling? For example, the most common thing we hear from mums is that the children refuse to learn at home especially after a break or a vacation or when they are taught a grade higher or sometimes even most of the days during the whole year as we expect them to study and complete a certain amount of work. So basically getting the work done is a huge struggle which in return causes anger and stress. However, if we understand that there is something called " Listening to Children in order to Support Transitions" then we would know a simple act from us can solve a mega issue faced every day by most of us. Children, as well as adults, need some kind of social continuity, physical continuity and Philosophical continuity in order to function well and blend into the environment. When they are expereincing discontinuity they are unable to be productive. Therefore instead of yelling, screaming and showing anger, we need to address the root issue. This workshop is all about this. Inshaa Allaah. I gave you an example so that you get the idea this is not going be the same old boring theories and experiences told and leaves you to accept that this is a phase and it will be fine. Rather we are going to look at changing our homeschool to a better healthier homeschool by overcoming the struggles one by one by the Mercy of Allaah. 
  • All of this from the comfort of your homes and from any part of the world Inshaa Allaah. Fostering the sisterhood and coming together to cultivate our children to please Allaah alone. 



We hope you all would join us and benefit Inshaa Allaah. We have scheduled the workshop for 3 Tuesdays Inshaa Allaah. It will be live and will also be available to complete at your own schedule through access to Nurture Islaam Learning Zone. Details below.

Reaching Communities - Nurture Islaam Online Courses & Workshops

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


No photo description available.


Alhamdulillaah we have been conducting Online Workshops and Courses for the past one and half years now and recently we achieved yet another milestone by the Mercy of Allaah.

A couple of sisters who regularly join me for the online classes went a step further and desired for their communities what they would love for themselves. 

It started with a sweet sister initiating to organize the live streaming of the Mums Homeschool Support workshop at the Salafi Centre Manchester Masjid "Baby Club" in the UK. Alhamdulillaah they lived streamed "What to Teach Children Ages 2 - 5" Mums/Teachers Workshop during their Baby Club Sessions over 4 weeks benefitting the sisters and their community. 


The response was very fruitful and it was a pleasure to have had the Manchester sisters joining us from the Masjid. My sincere thanks to the Masjid committee and all the sisters who joined me and a special thank you to my dear sister Umm Abdullaah from Manchester for initiating and organizing. May Allaah reward you immensely. Aameen. 

Here are some images shared by Salafi Centre Manchester Baby Club while our sessions were live streamed. 

 

 





This, in turn, inspired another sister and her family at the Masjid Rahmah Community in New Jersey USA. All of her children have been regular students for my online workshops and have enjoyed and benefitted throughout. She initiated to stream the Ramadhaan Heart Softeners Online Workshop for Girls and it was a huge success by the Grace and Mercy of Allaah. We were so amazed and impressed by their set up, neat organization and the wonderful delivery of the workshop via the pre-recording. 


I asked the dear sister who organized this event at Hillside, New Jersey, to send us a small write up as to how the event was carried out, in order to other communities to benefit from this as I have got many sisters asking me information and showing interest to do the same in their communities after I posted the Instagram story about this event. And here is her write up. 

As salaamu alaykum wa rahmahtullahi wa barakaatu, It was our pleasure to host the tweens and teens in the Masjid Rahmah Community in an Umm Maimoonah's Ramadhaan Heart Softeners Workshop!!  Dedicated Brothers and sisters offered du'aa and worked tirelessly in order to facilitate this wonderful endeavor! 

First, we contacted Umm Maimoonah to ask her permission to broadcast her Workshop, and to work out payment details.  Once she so graciously approved and set up payment arrangements, we sent a memo of our intentions to broadcast the workshop via the Parents' WhatsApp Group.  Interested families contacted me privately, and we disseminated pertinent information to them such as the time, date and location of the broadcasting venue.


Our intentions were to project the recording of the workshop on the wall.  Technical issues raised, and we settled for our computer.  Inshaa Allah we will have it working for our next workshop!

In order to establish a warm, welcoming, and exciting learning environment,  we decorated the venue with a Heart theme. We printed an  Itinerary (with hearts on it of course) so that the girls would know exactly what to expect.  We also pre-printed and bound their Ramadhaan Heart Softeners Packet. Little heart stickers on the front page embellished the already eye-catching graphic design.  Personalized ink pens and little heart cutouts were a few of the small extras that made the girls feel special.

After a brief welcoming,  open dialogue of expectations and encouraging reminders, we discussed the importance of maintaining the integrity of Umm Maimoonah's academic property that she licensed to us all.

Our beneficial learning session began when we played the recording if the workshop.  We paused periodically in order to ascertain whether the girls understood the information being disseminated. We answered the questions in the workbook which were based on the lecture.

In our 2nd session, we gave a brain break after each 45-minute block.  We stopped to pray, of course, then we had a floor puzzle competition.





After completing what we intended to complete the recording, we fed the girls dinner, which was at about 7:30pm EST.  We allowed them to converse until they were picked up or if their Umm was present, they left with her before Maghrib.

At the end of the workshop, the girls were given gift bags and a personalized certificate of completion.  They were so appreciative and humbled, Allahumma baarik Alayk.

We all had an amazing time, and more importantly,  we learned so much. I believe that we all left the workshop with a softened heart; a heart ready to receive the benefits of our blessed month of Ramadhaan,  bi ithnillah!!  Parents are anxious about the next learning session, and so are we! "

Barakallahu feeki to Umm Maimoonah, her family and her team!  We look forward to broadcasting more of her immensely beneficial workshops and classes for the young Muslimaat in our community!

Here are some more pics of their stunning setup!

 







My sincere thanks to dear sister Umm Raafiq and all my Masjid Rahmah sisters who helped this event to be successful for this kind initiative and all the efforts. It was wonderful to have the girls and you all at the workshop. May Allaah reward you and your families and accept this effort from you all. Aameen. The kind non Muslim family members of the sister were sweet enough to assist her with all logistic issues and my sincere thanks to them as well and we ask the Most Merciful Lord Ar Rahmaan and Ar Raheem to guide them. Aameen

Alhamdulillaah Nurture Islaam Products reached another community and benefitted them by the Mercy of Allaah. Alhamdulillaah we were also blessed to know that Troid Kids Club in Canada had a great time at their club using our popular Tawheed Junior Pack. We thank the sisters at Troid Kids club for their efforts and their kind recommendation and spreading the word. Baarakallaah Feekum.

 


And finally, we are indeed so grateful to all those families who are purchasing our Nurture Islaam Products and enrolling at our Nurture Islaam Online Courses. Indeed you are helping and aiding us to produce more products and more workshops and courses to benefit society as a whole. May Allaah increase you in every goodness. Aameen.

Alhamdulillaah, the intent of this post is not for boasting purpose or to talk about ourselves, rather it was only for the purpose of inspiring and encouraging other communities to take initiatives to benefit their own communities in educating and cultivating the children upon the correct and authentic Islaamic Knowledge and also to share the efforts of the sisters and the communities while spreading the khayr. We ask Allaah to accept our efforts and seek the rewards only from Him. Alhamdulillaah!

So if any of you would like to start the same initiatives in your communities especially for summer please do contact me Inshaa Allaah! We would love to assist you. Baarakallaah Feekum
