ilm projects letter connector

Teaching a second language at home can sometimes be challenging especially when teaching really young children. However, all you need is some fun and exciting ways! We’re sharing 12 easy tips to teach the Arabic Alphabet at home! With a combination of fun, games, storytelling, singing and arts and crafts – who said it can’t be fun? With the help of Yomna from @happyhomelearning we’re sharing some of our simple & easy (tried and tested) tips to teach the Arabic Alphabet at home! If your child is beyond this stage then your looking for the follow up post –  How to start teaching your child to read Arabic at home!

1. Arabic Alphabet flashcards

ilm projects letter connector

2. Use a sand tray for letter formation

So as the children trace over the sand letters (mentioned above) they then attempt to write out the letters in a sand tray. This is a simple sensory way of getting the children confident in writing. All you need is some sand and a tray. I used my trusty Ferraro Roche tray box.

3. Find the letter

4. Using everyday objects

When we introduce new objects we tend to find objects we have at home or in our play rooms and even pictures. This way children can hold or play with the objects while learning the new names in the Arabic Language. (Sign up to our newsletter below to receive a FREE vocabulary sheet for each letter of the Arabic Alphabet to help you get started with your teaching!)

5. Arabic Alphabet songs

Children love singing! So we use some of the songs we found on YouTube  including this simple Alphabet song and this Arabic alphabet rhyme with vocabulary and sing them in our sessions! We use ones that include vocabulary and then invent our own songs with the vocabulary we are using for that particular letter to help our children remember the new vocabulary.

6. Teaching order

Remember you don’t have to teach the letter alphabetically. Start with easier sounds like ba, jeem, laam etc – the same we don’t always teach the letters in order in phonics. However, like phonics, it is best to begin with the letter sounds that the names for reading.

7. Arabic letter games

Learning through games is so much fun for your child. We printed and laminated these cool mazes from Home Play School  – check out her website for more Free Arabic Resources including playdough mats!

8. Gambian Mommy Resources

Gambian Mommy produces some brilliant, fun and colourful resources for our kids’ Arabic learning journeys! You have to check out her wonderful creations over on at her page here . In the meantime, the ones we use and found our children loved were the Alphabet puzzle vocabulary pictures and the peg the matching vocabulary.

9. Using Playdough Cutters

ilm projects letter connector

Play dough is the most calming time with my girls. They love using play dough so we love incorporating it into our Arabic Lessons with these fab play dough cutters by the Desi Doll Company! You can use the cutters to make the letters you are learning that week and they also come in handy when your children are moving on to letter connecting too!

10. Arabic letter crafts

Arts and Crafts is always a fun activity, so we always try to tie in the craft to the vocabulary or letter of that week. In the case of the Jeem below, the children were to stick orange paper on the jeem which represents a carrot. (See video below for more!)

11. Make up Arabic vocabulary stories

To recap our vocabulary for the letter we learnt, we practised over them by making up stories and drawing pictures to aid us. Check out the video below for more!

12. Make an Arabic Wall at home

Learning displays are more than just making the rooms pretty! You can actively refer to them in your sessions by displaying the Arabic alphabet poster. Put up the children’s letter craft and any other learning aids you use! We have started making ours again below!
