Successful LEA Meeting ! Alhamdulillaah !!!

We had the LEA come on Friday, that morning I was so anxious just waiting for the assessor to arrive. But Alhamdulillaah I was pleasantly surprised when he came, I was expecting a much older man dressed up in a business suit with a briefcase, lol, the typical office look, but he wasn't at all like that and I didn't feel intimidated by him.

He was pleased with our classroom, said it was very colourful Masha'Allaah, he looked at a little bit of the girls work, he especially liked the lapbooks. He wasn't actually here for as long as I thought he would be, probably only about 20 minutes-1/2 hour, he said he was pleased with what he'd seen, and we appear to be on the right track, (insha Allaah) and he will send us the report and would be ticking the 'acceptable' box, alhamdulillaah.

I was over the moon, it was such a relief and quite a confidence booster. I am glad that I contacted them now, rather than them turn up at my door unexpectedly or something like that.

All my thanks go to Allaah, for making it easy for me alhamdulillaahil rabbil 'aalameen (All praise be to Allaah, the lord of Mankind).

On another note, here's a few recent web links I've come across which I thought I'd share :

Rocket Maths (note: apparently for home users the flashcards are more recommended for the memorisation of Math Facts)

Primary Home Tutor

Noeo Homeschool Science (U.S)

Math U See

Hearts and Trees

Cambridge Brain Box

Science Kits (U.S)

The Maths Factor (Carol Vordermans up and coming online maths school, insha Allaah)

Science A-Z

BTW, learning was little this past week, due to various factors, and me panicking and trying to prepare for the LEA, we did some work on the human body, some maths, spelling but not enough to post up an interesting enough update, will try better this week insha Allaah !

Also to the sister who sent me the message the other day, if your reading this, afwan sis, I apologise I didn't respond to your second email, I've been a bit busy as your aware the past few days, feel free to call me insha Allaah, probably best late afternoon insha Allaah, I look forward to hearing from you :)
