Arabic Curriculum goals

14 Dec

I’m trying to put together my own curriculum for my kids .

Below is a listing of the goals/skills that I have come up with to teach.  I thought they might be helpful to others, insha Allah who are trying to put together their own curriculum. I hope to make books and worksheets to accompany this. (Note: My file got corrupted for the alphabet books, but alhamdulillah, there is still a lot that is useable. So it will take me a little longer to get this finished, but I am still working on it)
