|Along with the Calendar we use the Dryerasable 100 Grid from Lakeshore,|
my children write the date, temp, problem of day, skip counting, math facts, etc.
So that leaves the last two Blogs and both of them helped motivate me in finishing this calendar that I have been imagining for awhile. Mama Jenn, she has two sets of twins and they are boys! She does an awesome job bringing Homeschool material to mothers and yes, she may just walk on water too. She's African-American and I can relate to all the different roles she has taken on. May God reward her for all of her hard work. Then there's Delightful Learning and she completes it for me. She has the style and creativeness that I can only aspire too. She follows both Christian and Jewish Traditions, which as a Muslim who would rather tweak Christian Curriculum than Secular to suit our needs, I find simple touches of inspiration from her. Such as how she incorporated Hebrew into her calendar. Like Satori Smiles, her photography is absolutely stunning, but she also has amazing crafting skills. Then the fact that she is Homebirther, Homesteader, & Free Thinkers is just icing on the cake. It is truly my delight to read her blog.
Please check out Mama Jenn's calendar here and Delightful Learning's calendar here.
I would like to also mention Homeschool Creation because my thermometer printable came from her. We have used many of her printables and May God reward her.

|ABC of the Quran|
A is for Ant- Look for this Download Soon!!
The colors match the color scheme of the ABC of the Quran chart that I am working on for Lil A. It is FLEXIBLE like us, depending on what we are currently learning or what we need, I can remove and move items easily . I can change the whole layout depending on space & design of our day. The dry erase board can move to the floor or up on our ledge very easily. There is also a Montessori appeal to it, allowing the child to slide brightly pastel colored pieces incorporates both a visual and tactile experience. While the color coded pieces provides a semi- self correcting element.
|We use the moons at night.|
I just started stapling until I came up with a makeshift folder to hold all the supplies. The larger labels fits perfectly in a C5 folder. I really like Mama Jenn's use of rings to keep it organized and together, rings are one of those necessary Homeschool supplies. However, I was more inclined to leaving the pieces loose, this way my children could use it as a manipulative placing all the months or days in week in order for instance.
During Ramadhan, we have been switching the dates out for the moons we sight at night. I also made my own 3 part Moon cards and books to assist in the vocabulary study of waxing, waning, gibbous, etc.
