Previously, we touched upon the importance of helping our children learn Arabic. But if you don’t speak Arabic yourself, that task is easier said than done. Not only is Arabic hard to pronounce for those of us who did not grow up speaking Semitic languages, it also has a complex grammar. So what are we suppose to do if we haven’t quite acquired the skill sets needed to impart this crucial knowledge? Even if you don’t know Arabic, you can start by taking it one step at a time, and by building the foundation brick by brick!
You probably have heard that the Arabic alphabet consists of 2 sets of moon letters and sun letters. It is important to learn which letters fall into which category to aid with proper pronunciation. While thinking about how I can help my children memorize which letters fall into which categories, I came up with a quick, and fun game, which was so easy to make and costed me only about a buck (can’t beat that!). Since I also had my kids make it themselves, it was relatively effortless ;).
InshaAllah, we will be sharing more Arabic Learning Materials, so check our blog frequently for more “building blocks”, or subscribe to our email list (at the bottom on the page) to get an update!
To make your own Sun and Moon letters game, you will need:
A useful tip you can teach your child is that the sun letters are typically pronounced at the front of the mouth while moon letters are often times pronounced at the back.
How to play:
Note: Only 2 players or teams can play this game at a time.
