In this series, the student textbook and workbook complement each other to create an enriching learning experience. The workbook consists of 25 lessons, each lesson taking up two pages. After finishing two lessons in the textbook, the child moves on to the workbook to do one exercise, up until lesson 25. The remaining activities (51-62) in the workbook are not directly related to lessons in the textbook.
Activities in the workbook include: how to hold a pencil and write from right to left, tracing over dotted characters to practice writing, and copying and relating the sounds and shapes of letters, among other exercises.
Students will also be taught counting from 1 to 10, and will practice sorting numbers.
The book takes a modern approach to teaching children Arabic letters and sounds. After students learn a letter in the textbook, they are trained to write and copy it using these steps:
Tracing over dotted letter characters; this teaches students how to hold a pencil, and familiarizes them with the shape of that alphabet letter.
Teaching students how to write the letter, and guiding them from the starting point of a letter to its end point.
Tracing over the shape of the letter, while following guiding arrows for direction.
Copying and writing the letter without tracing over the dots.
This book includes over 20 various types of exercises that attract children in this age-group. Some exercises deal with sounds and letters, while others deal with numbers from 1-10.
