If it is not already apparent by the little fingerprints you may find just about everywhere in the house, children love to explore the world around them through touch. Providing them with opportunities to manipulate objects will not only enhance their learning, but also help satisfy their sensory needs. Here is an easy diy project you can do with your kids to help them learn Arabic, as well as satisfy their urges to touch!
Previously, I wrote about how I use learning centers, and this activity could be used in conjunction with the Arabic blocks or as a stand alone activity for your Arabic classes. I put mine in an empty “fancy” chocolate box to store them.
1. With a strip of tape, tape enough Jumbo sticks together that is necessary to form a word of your choice, making sure it is aligned perfectly.
2. Write the Arabic word on top, making sure to put only one letter per stick. (I recommend using a pencil first and then going it over with a marker, in case you make a mistake)
3. Draw a corresponding picture underneath.
4. Remove tape, and secure each word set with a rubber band to keep them in order until they are ready for use.
Tip: To provide more practice, you can also write the Arabic letter in different forms at the back of each stick, and have them match up the correct form of the letter to form the word (see below).
Note: For younger children who may need additional support, you can print a list of words for them to reference. Alternatively, you can put numbers on the bottom of the sticks, to provide hints.
