My Salah Mat has asked people who Homeschool their children and have experience in what works and what does not. Here is Samia from "my Little Alim" who has kindly taken time to write this blog and has produced a great video for us all. For more information, all details and links are within the blog. We hope this helps!
TIPS AND ADVICE ON HOMESCHOOLING
Assalamu alaykum, my name is Jameela [ilmaeducation] and I’m a teacher. I don’t homeschool my children but I’ve been asked to give some teaching advice.
I’ve tried to find a tip that’s easy to do but is based on research. That tip would be to teach the important subjects early on such as Islam, Quran, Arabic, mathematics, English and you could include science. This is because children have higher energy and attention in the morning. After lunch, it’ll be harder for them to concentrate. Watch this video below.
I have plenty of other teaching tips on my blog such as:
