Homeschooling with Toddlers or Baby

If you have toddlers or baby while you are doing homeschooling, there are so many things you can do for the toddlers.
Here are some advices.
  • To meet the needs of the little one first.
  • To start homeschooling when the small one is not disturbing you.
  • To prepare all their homeworks for the olders for the next morning.
  • To read them out loud together or give them learning activities.
  • To go outside together, such as field trip, goint to park, etc.

When the olders are busy finishing their homeworks, I can do something else. They will come to me whenever they need help on their homeworks. If I need more time for the olders then I have to choose the right time to explain and teach the olders. You can choose the time when the young one is sleeping or enjoy playing toys.
Insha Allah, you will be fine.

May Allah make it easy on your homeschooling. Ameen.
