All New Arabic Learning Materials Posted (Finally, whew!)
Asalaam ‘Alaikum Everyone:
I finally feel a bit more peaceful now that I have finished what I promised so long ago 🙂 That’s what this picture reminds me of – although after I took this picture I started to become nauseous because the waves started getting unruly!
Well, aftter a lot of work, I have finally posted all the new Arabic Learning Materials I have promised (and then some 🙂 )
Insha’Allah you will find them worth waiting for.
Here are the materials I have added:
Arabic Alphabet Coloring Pages (These pages are very versatile and there are several other suggested uses – beyond just coloring.)
Arabic Fruit Names Matching Game
MAKE YOUR OWN:
If you have the time, please provide any feedback – I don’t know how to improve these items without hearing from you!

assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullah,
jazakallahu khayr for all the info you have provided, alhamdulillah it’s very inspirational.
where do you get large sheets of sandpaper? I am intending to do this insha-Allah, but the sandpaper letters are quite light in colour so I was thinking when I do it I will use sandpaper, but I was thinking of sticking the letters onto black card and maybe painting them with silver glitter paint – might even get my little one to do that with me.
what do you think?
I do agree that the sandpaper letters look at bit light – but you can actually buy it in darker shades. In the US you can buy larger size sheets of sandpaper probably at hardware stores. I just purchased small ones – and I was surprised that I didn’t use them all up – I still have quite a bit left.
I think it probably would be better – and more enjoyable for the kids if you put the sandpaper on some type of cardstock that is contrasting in color – that makes it stand out.
Originally I had thought that one woman’s version of sandpaper letters was neat – she just traced the letters with the silver glitter paint – but I got worried that the pieces of glitter paint would fall off over time. I’m not sure. Hope this helps!

Assalamu Alaikum. Jazaki Allahu khair!!! I am working on the sandpaper letters now and am halfway through. i’m excited to try the other projects as well.
I decided to do the movable alphabeet but include the middle patters, beggining and end
Because the child that is not used to this patterns will have a better sense about to recognize the letters on the words they see.
Thanks for your ideas
im kind of trying to think in fun ways to make her learn to write them without that tracing letter repetition what its too boring for them I think.
I can send you my file later.
Please let me know how these work out – I’d love to get a hold of the middle, beginning and end patterns myself – I tried working on them but got frustrated with my computer!
For a variety of things to do with practicing writing – place flour in a small pan and have your child trace the letters with her finger. When finished, just shake to even out the flour and start again. You can also do this with sand.
Another thing you can do is give your child string and have your child try to make the string into the same shape as the letter – and then trace how the letter is written on the string.
For variety you could also have your child write it on a chalkboard or a dry-erase board. For some reason, children really enjoy using these – and writing becomes less tedious.
Hope some of these ideas help.
salaam! i am doing the montessori course and needed an idea on islamic materials i loved the sand paper letters – soooo………got into my car got the card, got the sandpaper and got working i started at 3pm and finished at 8pm i couldnt stop!! they look amazing and really neat!! thankyou for the wonderfull ideas!! oh and i laminated the card before sticking the sandpaper latters on with super glue this ensures longer use of the materials and they look very professional!!
Thank you so much for posting these helpful activities! I’m using your bingo game to help the kids I teach at Sunday School to better recognize the alphabets. :]
