At 5pm, we quickly squeezed in a science lesson before rushing off to my daughter’s weekly wing chun lesson on Tuesday. At 5pm, children are normally exhausted from ‘normal’ school and the last thing they want to do is learn. I find that my daughter wants to learn all the time because her education is not fixed to a 9-3 schedule. Anyhow, it was quite fun doing science so late in the afternoon/early evening. We are working on Properties of Materials at the moment (and yes you can teach that to a 3 1/2 year old!)

 photo-0038.jpgThere were two other pages of the book, but I can’t seem to upload the pic. For the other two pages, I used wooden pegs to describe something that is hard as well as a prickly glittery piece of string-wire to describe something that is prickly.

All we did was pick things from around the house and discuss their simple properties. We then made a little book recording our results. I shall be sticking it up on my daughter’s wall. She adamantly asked that I stick it on her wall in a low position so that every day she can run her fingers over the objects and tell me ‘how they feel’. I was so happy (alhamdulillah) that she is interested in still referring to work that she has already done.

One content homeschooling ummi!

  2. Assalamu Alaikum Sis,

    Awww…jzk for stopping by! Alhamdulillah it is all from Allah. It truly is amazing how Allah (Swt) helps us with things that we ask him for help with. All praise is definitely due to Him.

    Jazaki Allah kheer for such a beautiful website. Thank you for sharing your experience. i do not have such a creative mind, and i know i will benifit a lot from you sister. My son is still 2 yrs and 3 months, but i will start doing some of the things you have here soon.

    i would just like to kindly request that you elaborate a little on what you do in the projects. As i said i am not very creative, so sometimes i can’t emagine, or completly understand how you do most of the project. i know you would be very busy, but plz try to elaborate more so people like me can find benefit.
    May Allah reward you
    Um Omar
