Assalamou alaikum,

I'm just curious since I may be homeschooling DD soon and I'll need all the help I can get! Especially since I'd like to expand her lessons to include things like Arabic and you all know that is far from my strong point.

I'm not homeschooling and probably won't be in the near future since a) I have to work and b) I have an Islamic school nearby. BUT I was homeschooled myself as were my brothers and sisters so if you need any ideas maybe I can help Not with the Arabic though... I've struggled to learn that myself!

Maybe hire an outside teacher to come once a week or so with some other moms who are interested? That is how I learned Spanish when I was a kid, we had group lessons in a kid-friendly way with my mother, my sister, aunt, cousins, and my best friend and her mom, it was great and when I picked it up again in college it was so easy to get into.

Thanks, that's a good idea. I was homeschooled for one year, but it was a joke since I knew more than they did. If I end up pulling DD out of the local school system I want her to be challenged by the work she's given at home.

Thank you Heather(hettyhoo) for my beautiful siggy

I was actually determined not to home school because she's so social. Duplicating that sort of interaction will be pretty difficult, and she gets lonely without a bunch of other kids around. I just don't feel like the school is safe anymore though. Between the violence in her own classroom and a notice they sent home that bullying was now such a problem that they're revising their entire policy I just don't want her there. I'm going to pick up some stuff and try teaching her over the summer and if that goes well I'm going to pull her out and home school her. It'll also give me time to research local activities for groups of small children. If it doesn't work out for some reason she'll still be enrolled and possibly further ahead of the other kids. If it does work out then I'll know she's safe.

Maryland Homeschooling - A to Z Home's Cool

Under Baltimore they have the "Muslim Home Educators of Maryland" listed and of course all the other groups. If I remember right you're a lot closer to there than I am. I've found a lot of useful information on that site.
