Thank you to fellow homeschool mama, mamafiza (littlekittle.com) for her very organized time blocks for h-skuling.
I’m a ‘kalut’ type of mum (so many things to do at once)- though I prefer to call my style of managing my kids’ schooling as ‘organized chaos’ (gulp!). ‘Apa taknye, mengajar ikut dan je’. Ex: Hey, let’s do cursive handwriting today, kiddos! Ok let’s take a nap. Ready, now let’s do a play..Muhammad, you’ll be The King, Musa The Tailor, Maryam The Little Princess.
I must say that credit goes to the kiddos’ Abi (my habibi) who is very creative and passionate when he’s teaching-playing with them. He’d make time to play chess with the boys, quizzing them (and Maryam too) on World History and Geography and answer their endless questions about this world and nature. Thanks Abi!
Today is day 33 of my ‘pantang’ – got an invitation from familyplace, a h-skuling community in Subang Jaya, to attend their dialogue session. They want us to share our h/s approach with other parents. Honestly, when we homeschool our kids, we are learning m0re from our kiddos. What looks good in books and on papers does not necessarily work out in practice.
Gotta go. Wanna have my nightly chat with Maryam (my little fashionista). Adios! Salam.
