How to teach Arabic the Montessori Way?

Yes!! you heard that correctly. There’s a way to teach your child how to read Arabic following the Montessori program. Or should I say, Montessori-esque.

With our flagship program, we have designed the Montessori-Inspired Sort and Match picture and word coloured-coded cards into 5 stages of reading; Yellow, Pink, Blue, Purple and the Green Series. They take you from the Arabic alphabet to being able to read any word/words in Arabic. Check out the guide below to see how.

In this course, your child will not only learn how to read Arabic progressively. But, he/she will build their vocabulary, learning new words with their meaning and gain understanding as they move forward. Children, truly learn best when they are engaged with the language. 

The workbook is the essential piece to the puzzle in unifying the language together. This Workbook has been prepared exclusively for our Montessori-Inspired Arabic reading packs. 

Supplementary worksheets, activity pages, additional reading exercises and quizzes have all been created to be used in conjunction with the Yellow, Pink, Blue, Purple and Green Series. Offering over 90 pages to support your child’s journey. Each worksheet has been colour coded to reference each Reading Pack Series. 

For an optimal learning experience, the workbook should absolutely be used alongside the Sort and Match Picture and Word Cards.

Here, I will tell you how it all began. 

Did you know, my book Teach Your Child To Read Arabic in 10 Easy Lessons all started in 2015?! It was when we decided to officially homeschool our daughter who had just turned the tender age 3. We were both new to home education. And, I was reluctant to teach her two languages simultaneously as I thought the capabilities of a young child who only just learned how the potty train a little over a year and a half ago, and had only just started forming sentences together in the previous year, was unable to acquire the complex skill of reading. But, how I underestimated the intelligence of a 3-year-old!

What a useful book! I homeschool my young children and teach several others and this has been so useful in building their Arabic reading skills and enjoyment of learning. My 2 year old regularly pulls the book out and makes me go through several pages with him. He loves the layout and how easy it is to spot the letters and how they are joined together. A great find that I'll be sharing with others. Thank you.
My children and I have thoroughly enjoyed using this book to learn Arabic. As non-Arabs we have found it easy to use and learn from. Its colourful layout makes it exciting and fun for kids and each lesson builds perfectly on the last. We love using the Montessori method and this book fits well.
Sha'baan is the month where every Muslim homeschool parent (at least what I know)prepare/list down beforehand for their kids to do during Ramadan. So the mother has enough time for their 'ibaadah during Ramadan. During my search I came across a PDF file 4 years ago, which circulated among the homeschoolers. I was deeply impressed with the simplified layout and everything regarding it! I immediately downloaded it. Alhamdulillah my son made use of it. Years passe, I met this beautiful soul, Umm Sumayyah. She had made this PDF into a book by then. The moment I saw her, I told her, this book Teach Your Child to Read in 10 Easy Lessons was super cool and even recommended it to a friend. Later, in the conversation, Umm Sumayyah told me she was the author.
