FREE Qur'an Arabic Reading Practice Books (Iqro)

I am so excited to find this rare gem (rare in the U.S., that is)!! It's almost impossible to find this book here unless you know someone from Indonesia or Malaysia who has them or going back home to get you some :) Alhamdulillah, these books offer the student lots and lots of practice. It dives right into learning the Arabic letter with tashkeel. So one does not need to learn the actual name of the letter. It is very similar to Noorani Qaidah but with a lot more practice on recognition of the letter in different forms--beginning, middle, end, with medd, with tanween etc. By the end of sixth book, your student should be able to read the Qur'an fluently, Alhamdulillah! I'm already starting this book with my 3 year old, Alhamdulillah. If you need a little guidance with this book, you can search "iqro" on youtube, inshaAllah.  May Allah bless all of us to be able to read the Qur'an correctly with knowledge and implementation. Ameen!

Awesome FREE Scanner App!!!!

I just have to share this!! A friend introduced me to this awesome app that scans and saves as a PDF! A copy machine at our fingertips! YAY!! This is especially convenient for us homeschoolers! Its called "Cam Scanner-Phone PDF Creator". You can get it from the Google Play Store.

Here's a pic I took for school and the PDF it created!

FREE Digestive System Notebooking Pages and FREE Online Resources

Assalaamu alaikum! I've been meaning to share these notebooking pages for some time now. We used these along with the resources below and tons of books from the library. My kids really enjoyed learning about the digestive process, mashaAllah!

I made a Color and Label page. My 5 yr. old labeled it with play doh and the older girls decided to just color it in.


We demonstrated what happens to food as it enters the stomach by crushing crackers and adding soda to act as the gastric juices.


You can find other fun activities to do at The Homeschool Den and HERE.
