Homeschool Corner: Plans for the week of 6/2 - 6/7 :)


"All praise and thanks belongs to Allaah. Lord & Creator of all the worlds. May Allaah bestow His peace & mercy upon the Prophet, his family, his companions, and on all of those who follow them in truth until The Last Day" Aameen

As salaamu alaykunna!


Welcome to Mariam Poppins. This is The Homeschool Corner. In shaa Allaah I will be sharing with you guys my plans for the week. For now I try to make my Tuesday plans lighter because the kids have a play group they go to.

Currently I am homeschooling a toddler, preschooler, 
kindergartner (soon to be first grader) and my baby girl who is 8 months old. (Hands full indeed!)
