Yesterday was our first official Arabic Day. I gave Sarah her notebook and she was so happy about it. We listened to this song several times, Sarah liked it and started trying to sing with it.

Then, I gave her all the cards that have the letter "Alif, أ"  to glue on the first page, of course, she insisted on doing it on her own :) At this point, I was saying, "I see you're gluing letter "أ". I got all my sheets from these 2 rich sources here and here, thank you.

Then, she started gluing the pictures that begin with this letter "arnab (rabbit), Anf (nose), Ozon (ear), ananas (pineapple)".  I think she got the hang of it because she then mentioned daddy's name "Ahmed" as an example of what starts with "Alif". She gave me some more examples (asad (lion)) which I wrote down for her.

^^^My handwriting :)

I have already made a stamp of letter "alif" using a baby's food cover (Yes, I feed my baby Gerber, don't hate me, lol). I used foam but for an error, I should have put the "hamza" facing the opposite way.


Stamping everywhere :)

Alif is the first letter in "Allah" so it was a chance to get her to know that. Now when asked, "who is your Lord?" she can proudly answer "Allah". Of course, she had to color the word "Allah" and glue it. Also, she can visually recognize it now.

Happy :)

Here, the question was to circle all the words that begin with letter "Alif".

Yes, she did it :)


Not bad, huh :) ?

I don't know what you call these blocks but I found them on the dollar store and knew that we would use them one day. I found the idea (as far as I remember) on PAHMs blog, again thank you.

Remember the sand that I bought a few weeks ago from the dollar store, it came to use. I like their quality and sparkle :)

Drawing "Alif" on the sand :)

That was all for yesterday, I hope you enjoyed it.
