homeschooling resources

Asalaamu alaikum

My husband is designing a new website for the islamic publishing company he works for and he said he can include a seperate area on or offsite where we can upload homeschooling materials and resources for free use. It would be organized by subject with download links. The only problem is getting all the  materials together so if you have any materials that would be beneficial, please email them to me at this following address:

In the subject line, please state the name of the resource, the course and grade.

ex: asma’ullah al husnaa, islamic studies, grade 4      (or)
patterning with manipulatives, mathematics, grade 1     (or)
bag with shapes, montessori, grade k     (or)
history of the arab empire w/exam, history, grade 11

I am going to try and see if he can make it so that anyone can upload their own materials as they make them or find them so that there is more involvement and so it is more accessible inshaAllah.

We are accepting any and all resources and grades and subjects. Even if they are posted elsewhere, please send them us as well so that we have as many resources together in one space as possible, bi’thnAllah. Jazakallah khair.

Asalaamu alaikum rhamatullah wa barakatu,

Okay so for sewing, for your older daughters (and sons if they enjoy it), can use a sharp needle inshaAllah, but what do you do for the younger ones? You use a plastic needle and yarn insha’Allah.

If you wanted to, you could get one of those beginners weaving/knitting/sewing kits or you could just go ahead and use a plastic needle, a peice of yarn and anything else you want to sew through such as buttons, cut pieces of straws, burlap, etc.

Here is an activity your daughter or even your son can have fun with to learn to sew and weave… good for hand eye coordination inshaAllah. Once finished, you could use it as a mini prayer mat for magnets, a mini prayer mat for a doll house, or a coaster for your tea inshaAllah!

Yes I know I am posting a lot masha’Allah, i am trying to make up for the past five days insha’Allah.
