and why did you decide to Home Educate? The
decision to Home-educate was not a simple one for us. In truth, I had never really
considered homeschooling as an option for my family. However, as my eldest son
got nearer to the school-starting age, and as I learnt more about who he was
and his own beautiful personality, I realised that traditional schooling would
not be the best option for him. So we decided to “take the plunge” and withdraw
his application for primary school and home-educate him. I know from the bottom
of my heart that this was the right decision for him. In fact, he thrived and
has done so well at home that we decided to homeschool his younger sibling too! What
kind of approach do you take? We
are trying to follow a Charlotte Mason approach, but as many of you readers will realise, learning new education philosophies takes time…time that most
home educators do not have! As such, I am trying to educate myself on Miss
Mason’s approach and implement what I learn as I go …
Welcome to my blog! I'm Nicola! I home educate my children DD14, DS11, DS9, DS6 & DD3.
I wrote this guide a few years ago after many families began home educating and asking me many questions. I then set up this blog in January 2017 followed by my Instagram page theworldistheirclassroom
Firstly, just a quick note on how to get around my blog. The PC version is slightly different to the mobile version but they both have an icon of three small lines in the top left hand corner of the Home Page. (On the PC version this may be clicked automatically and therefore, show a side panel.) But if you click this, you should be able to easily find older posts in the archive as well as some labels which I have tagged onto posts in order to group similar ones together. There is a search bar at the top of the Home Page screen to quickly search for a particular word. Hope this makes it easier to find what you're looking for.
We are thrilled to have the opportunity to try out some fun Arabic learning games in our Home Ed classroom!
Are your children interested in learning a new Language? or are you looking for something new for the kiddies this Ramadan and Eid? Why not check out these great games?!
They are from the online shop Daradam who are the creators of top quality educational resources for parents and teachers. Their inspiration has been taken from the richness of Arab Art, Architecture and Craftsmanship, aiming to instil a passion for the Arab heritage and culture in the hearts of young children around the globe.
My children have been learning Arabic since they were very young. We use various books, flashcards and online one to one lessons with native Arabic speakers. When we received this parcel of Arabic goodies in the post they couldn't wait to try them out. Our Arabic lesson became a lovely evening of family fun around the kitchen table, putting the fun back into learning!
