Educating K | Useful Resources, Websites & Books

When I first started homeschooling these are the kind of posts I would search for online.  Something to help me along and read about other peoples experiences and advice.  So I really hope my Educating K series has been useful.  Today, I'm sharing my favourite resources, websites and books that have helped me and K start our homeschool too.  I'm also sharing other books that I've come across which I think will be useful in your homeschool.  I haven't bought them yet, but they're definitely on my list.

Educating K | Which Resources Are We Using? | Skills Based

You'd think that the previous two posts were enough when it came to homeschooling, but for me there are a few skills which are just as important to help your child along.  They add a little extra and work wonders at enhancing their learning experience and adding skills that will stay with them and benefit them greatly.

Educating K | Which Books Are We Using? | Other Subjects

Since my previous post was too long I had to split the post into 3 parts otherwise we'd have been here all day!  I've talked about how we're learning English, Maths and Science so today we'll be looking at Geography, History, Computing and Islamic Studies.

Educating K | Which Books Are We Using? | Core Subjects

So here's the post that so many of you have been requesting.  Which books are you using?  This is a question that I get asked a lot and I'm always happy to share whatever I can with you.  I've had to split it up into 3 parts otherwise this post would have been just too long!

Educating K | How I Planned our Whole Year

I love planning.  Planning for a holiday or planning a new concept for Love Hijab.  But planning a lesson is something I'd done a very long time ago and wasn't quite sure how planning a whole year let alone a day of homeschooling was going to have in store for me.

Educating K | Our Homeschool Timetable

Before I tell you all about how I planned our whole year, I think it would be best to talk to you about the subjects K will be studying.  First, I made a list of all the subjects K wanted to learn.  I knew we would definitely be doing English, Maths, Science and Computing, but K also requested we do Geography and History too.  And when I came across Safar Publications books, they were the perfect books to teach K all about our religion as well as teaching her to respect other religions too.

Educating K | Why Are We Homeschooling?

So here's a post I've been meaning to write up for a while.  I know I like my fashion related posts but I actually do have other things going in on my life too.  Amongst all other things, is homeschooling.  We just started homeschooling in February this year and although it was difficult to begin with, we soon settled in.  I thing we were kind of thrown in at the deep end, you could say.  Because we had never really looked into it before or done any research, it was like we were heading into the unknown.  And to be honest, we were!

How To Style An Oversized Coat

There was a time that I remember so clearly when no one would wear anything oversized or even a couple of sizes bigger than their actual size.  Everything had to be the correct size.  But I'm so glad that these days you can comfortably go to a store and pick up a sweatshirt or t-shirt in a larger size without feeling like you're going to stick out like a sore thumb.  That's why I love the oversized look and it's great for those days when you don't want to make an effort, but don't want to look like you haven't made an effort either!  You get what I mean?

Top 5 Shoes Under £20 from H&M

If you don't love a bargain when buying a pair of shoes, then I'm afraid to say there's something not quite right.  I can't resist a good bargain, especially when it comes to shoes.  I have a collection that's too big for my wardrobe even though I cleared most of them out a couple of years ago.  Don't ask me what happened after that because I'm back to square one.  And as if my shoes collection isn't over flowing enough, I went on the hunt for more and came across a few gems I couldn't help but share with you too.
