First Day of School 2016-2017

Hi guys! I hope you guys are having a wonderful week. I can't believe it's already August! We have officially started school and we couldn't be more excited. We spent our first day eating pancakes, taking pictures, and going over all our new curriculum.

I know some people normal would just add in a few subjects at a time but we start with a full schedule and just play it by ear. If the kids are into it we keep going and if their having a hard time I just take out things.

My eldest doesn't enjoy me taking pictures of him anymore :(. He's growing up! 


My preschooler and I have been doing school all of July so he knew what to do. Well I worked with the older boys he kept himself busy with his letter of the week activities.

Our bookshelf for the week. 

My busy bees :). 

Islamic Studies:

We plan to journal for Islamic studies this year.

After reading some books and learning some new facts about Canada we worked on some mapping activities.


Our first day was busy but lots of fun. I can't wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for us. Have you started school yet?

  1. Lovely what resources are you using for Islamic studies.

    1. Thank you! We are currently reading through a book called The Greatest Stories from the Quran. I put together my own resources and supplement with lectures.

    2. Masha Allah, I have been going back and forth about this book. My son is 3.5 and starting to really take an interest in learning more about Islam.

    3. It's a really good book. The text is really short so you can expand on it according to your child's interest.
