We have started our homeschooling while waiting for some resources still. Inshaa Allaah all resources should be with us in a few days.
So what is our set up this year!?
Since space is very limited this time, we have adjusted our classroom and work boxes accordingly.
Last year we started the workboxes system and it made things easy Alhamdulillaah. We used mesh file folders as workboxes last year. But to adjust according to space and resources available we are using a "Work Basket". The day's work to be done are arranged in this Basket with Subject labels inside each book or resource.
When she finishes the work the "Done" card is updated. And when the work is over Basket is empty.
Then I refill the basket with the next day's work and keep everything ready. It is working well as same as before, but "Work Basket" does give a cosy feeling I guess and she is happy about it.
And this is her working area.
And these are some of the HomeSchool Supplies we got for this year.
Getting back to routine after a break as usual is not all that rosy. She tends to be more playful these days but finds the work challenging and is determined to get things right even though she is getting immuned to distractions. Strangely though, I thought as they grow up attention span increases and distractions decreases, but I feel the opposite sometimes. When she was younger she had less distractions!!! Each child is unique I guess and needs to be handled accordingly. But with all this the introduction of Scrapbooks is received well by Maimoonah as she is getting very much involved in them to the extent she wants to do only "Islaamic Studies" the whole day!
Will update about that later Inshaa Allaah. Hope you all have started the new homeschool year and enjoying too by the Mercy of Allaah!
