Alphabet (Shapes)

 

 

The next level introduces sound-letter relationships at a reasonable pace by offering more in-depth vision on how to write Arabic letters, by explaining and exemplifying the main consonants and semi-vowels. Each topic is composed of lessons and quizzes covering vocabulary more broadly. The lessons contain words from familiar environmental print, followed by letters that occur most commonly in the Arabic language. The letters are presented in all its forms (initial, in the middle and final), with word examples. Each quiz focuses on the correct letter placement in the word, teaching letter-sound relationships explicitly and in isolation, correct pronunciation of letters and words, testing long term memory with “mix and match” exercises and practice opportunities that include new sound-letter relationships, as well as cumulatively reviewing previously taught relationships.
