Arabic Alphabet Poster

Handmade poster of Arabic Poster

 

So we have entered that part in our Islamic Studies where we are learning about the Arabic Alphabet.

My older girls take classes on www.thmsadaqagroup.org .

The sister Umm Umar Khadeejah teaches classes from:

They are very helpful and the sister is thorough and extremely patient. May Allah Reward both sisters for all they have done to help us in teaching our children, Ameen!

For reinforcement and teaching my young ones, We have made a large poster. My 3 year old son and 5 year old daughter really love this poster we made. I must say my 2 year old likes pointing at the letters and then have us tell him the letter then he tries to repeat us, it’s so cute masha Allah.

Okay, how this poster is made is very simple. I just took a cardboard box, again you can use art paper or whatever you prefer. I just chose this for sturdiness because it will be moved around and the kids touch it so much. Poster board may do the job too.

What I did is section the box in half to get the flaps of the box out. I then taped those two sections together and this gave me my large poster like backing to work with. I took white paper and covered it so it wouldn’t look so much like a brown box.

Now for the alphabet itself…..hmmm I had some cutouts of the alphabet saved on my computer from a sisters site that no longer exists (umm Fatimah) .  I had my kids color them, cut them out and then I placed them on cardboard and cut them out again. ( there’s a reason for so much work…*smile*)

I wanted to make this another hands on project so I placed some velcro on the back of each letter so we can move them around once the kids learned them in order to just make sure they know the letters. I also plan on adding fathah,dammah,and kasrah to the letters later on insha Allah.

Here are the color cutout letters I used:

Again you don’t have to use the files I have posted. You can use what you like. I chose these because it made it easy to involve all my children once again. Making handmade learning tools is really fun for them and helps them learn much faster masha Allah. I have just shared with you what I used in this post. Feel free to tweak it or even share back. I love to hear new ideas!

This is yet the beginning of our learning adventure into Arabic. May Allah make it Easy on us all, Ameen.
