Arabic Alphabet Lessons for Preschoolers: Lesson 6

09 Jan


Lesson 6: Saad, Daad

Go through steps 1 and 2 below. If student has no trouble recognizing the letters, then move onto the new learning. If student still has trouble, repeat lesson 1 routine or play games such as bingo to reinforce recognition of the letters.

  1. Opening

Looking at Alphabet Reciting Chart, point to each letter of the alphabet, in order, and say its name while student looks on.

  1. Review of past letters
  1. Use flashcards of letters alif – seen, and flash them to student in random order to call out the name.
  2. Lay out all cards and call out one at a time (randomly) for student to find.
  1. New letter introduction
  1. Write the letters alif – sheen on the board or paper in order, saying the names as you write them.
  2. Now, add on the new letters in order: sad, daad saying the names. Read back now through all letters alif – daad in order while pointing to them.
  3. Point to the new letters and say them a few more times.
  4. Now, have student pronounce the new letters. Be sure to watch student’s mouth as sometimes the word may sound correct, but student is really saying something different. Repeat a few times to make sure the pronunciation is clear.
  1. New letter drills
  1. Using generic gameboard , write each of the following sequences in their own spaces on the board. Say the names as you write them and have student watch

Sequences, one per square:

Start at right side of game board and write the letters from right to left:

saad saad saad

daad saad saad

daad daad saad

daad daad daad

saad daad daad

saad saad daad

daad daad daad

daad saad daad

saad daad saad

  1. Let student read through the drills on the board from start to finish. Repeat a few times if student shows interest.
  1. Enrichment

Choose one more of the following activities as time and student’s interest allows:

1. Make large, bubble letters of each new letter and have student color in the letters

2. Take the colored in bubble letters and make a puzzle of each letter. Student must put the puzzle pieces together to recreate each letter.

3. Writing: Show student how to properly form each letter in writing and have student write the letter (see TJ Dotted letter alphabet tracing pages) or have student write in air, sand, etc.

4. Provide a worksheet where student must circle all of a given letter in a row..
