My Place in the Universe- Michigan

Me on the Map by Joan Sweeny is a wonderful book that we have used to understand our place in the Universe. The activities that follow is still one of our favorite ways to visualize it. When we lived in Maryland we made and shared a circular form, however we went with a simple square display to learn our new Michigan address.

Reading the Quran

Reading the Quran in Arabic a Juz a day is recommended. Reading the Quran in your first language so that you clearly understand the meaning is wonderful. My favorite Quran with English translation is The Gracious Quran by Ahmed Zaki Hammad.

Ramadan Books

There are many classic Ramadan stories we love to read out loud every year. Eid Kareem Ameer Saab! is a classic tale of a man who learns to not be miserly similar to Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol.

Flint Water Crisis

If there is any legacy that Noor Janan Homeschool wants to leave behind is that we were known for serving others. Not just in the curriculum that we offer for free and the homeschool support that we give. But also how we served our neighbors and people in our community. Flint is an hour drive from our home and it is important for us to go there because Children being poisoned by lead in the water is a serious matter. It will have long term affects on their brain and their ability to learn.  The least we can do is give clean water.

I have been color coding my children for a long time before Lil A was even born. My oldest son's color was orange, Big A is still pink, S Man is blue, Z Man is green, and Lil A is purple.
