Do It Yourself Arabic Alphabet lessons for kids – Lesson 2

20 Aug

I. Review

  • Review letters from yesterday using flashcards or drill cards.
  • Ask student how many letters there are in the Arabic alphabet.
  • Using alphabet chart, point to each letter of the alphabet and say each letter’s name to student.
  • II. Practice

    If student has trouble with the letters, play games to reinforce until mastery. Here are some activity ideas:

    If student remembers the letters with ease, do the following exercises:

    Alphabetical order:

    • Write the letters alif, taa, baa on separate lines, each with a blank line behind them. Tell student to write the letter that comes next.
    • Write the letters thaa, taa, baa on separate lines, each with a blank line in front of them. Tell student to write the letter that comes before.


    Call out each one of the letters alif, baa, taa, thaa, out of order for student to write.

    If student has mastered the letters, move onto lesson 3 for the next letters. If not, play games in subsequent sessions until mastery as well as provide daily handwriting ptractice.

    Preparation for next lesson:

    • Prepare drill cards:

    Make 4-5 lines of drills. On each line, write each letter jeem, haa, khaa, but in a different position.

          I’m sorry, I don’t know. We left Yemen about three years ago. You might try It’s a great egroup that I used to be active in/co-manage and has members from around the world, including Yemen. Maybe you can find somewhere to network with in shaa Allah.

      Assalaamou Alaykoum

      This site is very usefull MashaAllah,may Allah reward all the people who keep up the hard and vital work and help us teachers to tutor our children in Class so that they will be able to read and write the Arabic language inshaAllah. The only point i want to ask is why i can not open the links ? I do actually open them but it happens that the actual program doesn’t come up..? JazakoumAllahu khayran for answering.

        wa alaykum us salaam, sorry for the late reply. Any link that has is no longer active as I don’t have this domain anymore. You might try, this is my “new” site for Arabic, but I am not sure if this resource (the activity bank) can still be found there. I am hoping, in shaa Allah to convert the lessons over to PDF form for ease of use.
