Arabic Exercise Book I: Unit 1
Learning the alphabet, colors, shapes and numbers in Arabic.
The Arabic Exercise Book
series (units 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9) is designed to assist parents in teaching their children now to learn the Arabic colors, shapes, numbers and alphabet. Each lesson provides students with opportunities to practices writing, coloring activities, and reinforcement of lesson objectives.
English transliterations are given to assist parents who are not Arabic speakers. However, it must be noted that transliterations are approximate since some sounds in Arabic cannot be adequately represented using English phonemes (sounds).
Tracing shapes and practice space have been provided in each lesson in order to give students an opportunity to practice writing.
Please take special notice of the line guides (lines drawn under or through the tracing letters and numbers) that are in the tracing section. These show the correct placement of the Arabic letter/number in reference to the writing line. Make sure that students are placing the letters correctly on, above or below the line as indicated.Please note:
The books are numbered with odd numbers (i.e. 1, 3, 5, 7, 9) to correspond to the units in the ALP curriculum in which these books are used. The even-numbered volumes are dedicated to English language skills.
