My 2020 Homeschooling Goals & a freebie

Assalaamu alaykum! Welcome back 😀

I recently shared on my instagram how I am just starting to get back into a homeschool routine for my almost 4 year old. We have taken quite the break and we are now both ready to get back into the swing of things and restart the curriculum. بإذن الله

Our own homeschool goals for 2020 in shaa Allaah. A couple are my daughter’s choice.

So this year I am trying to get as organised I can about her education to benefit the both of us إِنْ شَاءَ ٱللّٰهُ .

One thing that I need and love having is my aims clear and visible, whether it’s homeschooling, cooking or sewing up orders.

Each time I organise a gathering or party and there’s lots of food to cook, I have always written up quick recipes and list of dishes that I’m making for the day and stuck it up in the kitchen so that I can see exactly what needs doing!

Without planning ahead of time, for me it’s like being thrown into the sea 🌊 . Unsure of which way to head out and if I’m even getting anywhere.

2020 goal: Tawheed & Arabic!

It’s the basis, the foundation, the absolute essential knowledge to a successful dunya life and hereafter.

Next focus: Reading

Homeschool Goals Printable

I’ve created this poster to stick up on the wall in our class area.

It’s pretty open ended so you could write in some guidelines such as phonics or reading goals goals. Or you could write general goals such as getting outdoors more, attending monthly meetups. Joining a coop or swimming lessons.

Even behavioural ones for example listening skills, or more play.

Just jot it all down and pop it on a wall which you see frequently.

Don’t forget to have a celebration everytime you reach one of those goals! 🎉

As always, share with us your own homeschool goals and tag @mama.n.baba on Instagram! I would love to see it 😀

Fruit and Veg – Sorting Activity

Assalaamu alaykum and hey everybody!

You may have already seen my fruit and vegetable flashcards.. this is a little activity to go with it.

It’s a sorting mat, so using the flashcards you want your child to learn the difference between fruits and vegetables.

Laminate it and add it to your activity folder, or simply use it as a mat.


With two players, shuffle the cards.
One player with the fruit cards and the other with the vegetable cards.

Have the players take turns in placing their card in the right category.
When there are two cards on the mat that both begin with the same letter, the first player to notice says “Snap!” and wins those two cards. The player with the most cards at the end, wins.

Lowercase Alphabet Display/Flash Cards – free download

Assalaamu alaykum, hey everyone.

After a long procrastination! (Like, I’ve literally had this in the draft for more than a year), I’m sharing these rainbow coloured lowercase alphabet display cards, for putting up on the wall or just chunky flashcards if you like to use them that way.

I absolutely love these, they bring such fun colour into our class area. 

A colourful display using my rainbow flashcards!

We’ve moved since and put them back up and these are definitely a staple.
