Ihsaan Home Academy Compilation
Please Note: I do NOT necessarily approve of all the information found in the resources that I share. I have no way to verify everything. I only share what I think may have some useful knowledge or tips to help you ease your homeschooling experience inShaa Allah. I verify and/or modify (when needed) what I use, one by one. So it is your responsibility to do the same and be sure you know exactly what you're teaching your children. You are under no obligation to only use the resources that I share here as I'm only sharing what I find along the way. This may NOT be a complete subject curriculum. If you find better, please use it and share it with us if you do not mind. There are lots of free resources out there that you can use to either supplement your homeschooling or use as a main curriculum if it is complete and lives up to your expectations. Either way, it may help you save lots of money because unless specified, everything under this tab is FREE. Just select the resources that interest you, and make lesson plans. Please download the materials immediately; even if you are not using them now. Sometimes links may change, and the file may not be available at the current link.
*I may have some resources that I will not share here because I have the PDF files and no longer the links. I do not remember where I got them from, so for copyright reasons, I believe it would be best not to upload them directly on my site unless permission is given by the owner. I will do my best to find the links inShaa Allah.

If you are Mandenka (Mandinka, Bamana/Bambara, Dioula, Manika), this is for you. If you haven't yet learned to write in your language using the Nko script, then now is the time to learn it in shaa Allah. You already speak your language, so why not write it as well. No need to continue depending on foreign script when none of them can accurately transcribe the language as it should. If you're a homeschooling parent, then you should teach your children the script.
 
Here is a very resourceful website you could start with:

Fasso
It has 65 videos teaching the Nko script from very basic to advanced. The teaching is in Mandenkan (or however you prefer to call it depending on the part of Mande/Manden you are from). When I say Mande, I'm obviously talking about ancient Mande which is currently part of many different West African countries of today; mainly Mali, Gambia, Guinea, Ivory Coast, and others. The countries listed aren't entirely Mande territories, just parts of them, the biggest ones being Mali, Guinea, and Gambia.

I couldn't find many useful resources, but I will share as I find more, in shaa Allah.
If you do find some, please, be sure to share them with me *ni Allah son naa ma.*
