Step #5 – Reading new vocabulary with object clues!

At this stage, you will want your child to read to understand some of the vocabulary too. So you can simply write out simple 3 letter Arabic words (a list will be sent out in our newsletter – be sure to subscribe below!) and once they sound out the letters and blend, they can pick out the correct object from a basket to match the word.

Step #6 – Listening activities & pronunciation!

Children (and even adults) can find the similar sounding letters in Arabic confusing. So this activity we do below with the kids is fabulous! The children listen to word being said and peg the letter. You can find this to download for free on here.  These resources along with many more are absolutely FREE shared by a sister who posts her resources on her Facebook group called Arabic Worksheets .

Step #7 – Introduce the tashkeel starting with Fat-ha!

This is defo something I’ll book mark for future use when my little one is old enough insha Allah. It could even be used for reverts too! Children’s resources are always best when learning a new language

That’s lovely to hear – thank you!

Masha’Allah, leaving the ‘vowel sounds’ until later seems really dyslexia-friendly. I think step four here will appeal to everyone in my family, insha’Allah, so I have added your recommended resources to my wishlist and bookmarked this post. Jazakillahkhayr.

That’s great- yes we find it can confuse the child so best to bring in later- glad it’s helpful!

I love these activities masha’Allah Hafsa! I’m bookmarking this inshaAllah to come back to when the kids are ready to move on to this stage – it’s such a comprehensive post!

Thanks Iman! Appreciate the support!

This is amazing! I think reading and understanding is so important as a Muslim. Starting to teach from young is super important. Thank you for sharing 🙂 (www.spicyfusionkitchen.com)

Thank you for sharing! This is really helpful information. One difficulty I am running into with Arabic is that we speak Iraqi Arabic in the home, but children’s books are in MSA. Often when I’m reading, I feel like I have to keep “translating” from MSA to the Iraqi dialect. (I have two boys: 2.5 yrs and 4.5 yrs.) I try not to translate all the words – I want them to pick up some of the meaning just from context – but if I read everything in MSA, they don’t understand it very well and they quickly get bored. I worry that it’s a lot to expect of such young children to speak the Iraqi dialect, to learn modern standard Arabic, AND to learn to speak/read/write English in preschool.

I think the best thing is as they are so young, get familiar with speaking and familiar with the alphabet and writing it. The will pick up languages but maybe as the languages are similar in dialect, they could pick it up quicker. You could focus on one language at a time too – hope that helps. You can also check out http://www.multiculturalmotherhood.com who shares the benefits of teaching more than one language from an early age 🙂

Industrial Light & Magic’s New Look Takes Flight

45+ years | 500+ film and tv credits | 135+ awards.

May 31, 2023

“I wanted to make sure we brought the magic back to the ILM logo,” noted John Knoll, Industrial Light & Magic’s Executive Creative Director, participating in one of the dozens of interviews completed over the course of the fourteen-month rebranding project for the renowned visual effects and animation studio founded by George Lucas. 

“We wanted our new branding to pair closely with ILM’s mission statement, We are visual storytellers who create iconic moments to inspire the imagination ”, explained Janet Lewin, SVP General Manager, ILM, “At ILM, we prioritize our culture of collaboration and community and we truly value innovation and quality. These core ideals allow us to confidently take risks and embrace the unknown on the challenging projects we seek out.”

Knoll was one of over a thousand ILM employees who provided input to twin sisters Amy and Jen Hood who own the Southern California brand identity and type design studio, Hoodzpah . As part of their exploration of ILM, its employees, its legacy, and its values, the interviews revealed fascinating insights into the company and how it has managed to keep both its creative team inspired and its technology on the cutting edge of innovation for nearly five decades. Knolls’ sentiment struck a chord and it became an oft-referred phrase as the Hoodzpah team collaborated with a core group of ILM leaders on how best to capture the company’s incredible legacy while building a unique identity system that would serve it well into the future.

“ILM has several different logos in the past forty-eight years,” explained Rob Bredow, SVP and Chief Creative Officer for ILM, “and all have incorporated the core elements from the company’s original logo, the famous wand-wielding magician framed by a large gear with the letters ‘ILM’ originally illustrated by Michael Pangrazio in the late 1970s and later finalized in a painting by renowned artist, Drew Struzan. The company and the industry have evolved substantially in the past eighteen years and we felt the time was right to develop a new brand identity that captured the global studio we’ve become.”

Now with six global studios—San Francisco, Singapore, Vancouver, London, Sydney, and Mumbai—ILM has not only revolutionized the field of visual effects with groundbreaking innovations in digital effects, performance capture, previsualization, and digital humans, and has most recently innovated in areas as diverse as real-time rendering, immersive entertainment, and virtual production with it’s Emmy Award-winning StageCraft platform.

Hoodzpah began the assignment by getting to know the company through individual and group interviews with key members of ILM’s leadership team and representatives of the employee base across all strata of the studio and each of ILM’s globe locations. Then came the task of distilling the information into key learnings. “It was remarkable given the sheer number of people we interviewed that there was such cohesion in terms of what the employees felt the brand represented and where they aspired to be,” said Jen Hood.

The new dynamic glyph and custom wordmark combine to draw from the company’s illustrious legacy while carrying it into the future. Amy Hood, explained, “The mark utilizes negative space within the silhouette of a gear giving the impression of a lightbulb contained within, both elements existed in the company’s original logo by Pangrazio and Struzan. We incorporated a swoosh trailing a spark of magic in the new mark which represents the global nature of ILM’s talent base and studios. Paired with the mark is the Industrial Light & Magic wordmark designed and set in a bold customized serif face evocative of the abbreviated type in the company’s original logo.” The team also developed updated logos for sub-brands ILM Art, ILM StageCraft, ILM Technoprops, and ILM Immersive (formerly ILMxLAB). The supporting visual identity uses cinematic colors inspired by ILM projects over the years, as well as bold type, and stark minimal layouts. The rebrand scope spanned deck templates, social media assets, a new homepage redesign, logo animations, swag, and more.

Now in its 48th year of existence, ILM continues to be a creative partner to storytellers and filmmakers alike. The talented artists, technicians, and production teams ensure that the company remains on the cutting edge as they continue to develop new techniques and technologies that allow audiences the world over to be immersed in the visuals and experiences the company helps to create.
