Alhamdulillah today we are sharing the first in a five-part series of Arabic alphabet lapbooks!
Over the next 5 weeks we'll upload a new lapbook to complete the full alphabet bi'ithnillah!
To help the similar looking letters be grouped together, the letter alif has been placed in the final lapbook rather than the first (so don't panic....alif is not missing!)
- I know some of you may have preferred the letters to be in alphabetical order, however I found that by placing alif at the end, it allows the similar looking letters to be grouped together in separate lapbooks, which should help the child to learn how to distinguish between the sometimes very small differences inshaAllah.
This first lapbook covers letters ba to kha.
I'm using a file-folder which opens out - so the cover has been cut into 2 and each piece affixed to each opening flap.
The complete lapbook laid out.
Each letter has its own mini-book which is simply folded accordion style and stuck into place.
It includes a letter colour-in cover, a word example beginning with the letter and a letter trace page.
The final part is a simple alphabet colouring page with tashkeel (vowel markings)
I suggest that when you ask your child to colour this sheet in, you may find it helpful to encourage the use of 3 different colours - one colour for each of the separate vowel markings. For example, all the fathas perhaps in blue, all the kessrahs in pink and all the dummahs in yellow.....whatever colours your child likes. By separating each vowel into one colour it may help the child to recall the sound each makes (ah ee oo).
