This Arabic letters handwriting workbook provides children with the opportunity to shape each letter with play-doh, recognize each letter as it appears in isolation, in the middle of a word and at the end of a word. Children also practice writing each letter in each of the three above-mentioned forms. When done, children are given the opportunity to locate and identify each letter in actual words, helping to support letter recognition insha'Allaah.

The book is meant to be (but you don't have to) printed on card stock, laminated and bound so that students can use a dry-erase marker to use the workbook repeatedly for handwriting and letter formation practice (with play-doh) insha'Allaah. To keep cost down you can print the workbook on card stock and instead of laminating each page, use clear shelf liner, and then bind it.

This book has a vinyl cover on both the front and back, is spiral bound, and has clear shelf liner only on the bottom half of the page where students will do their work.

To use the book in your Quraan or writing centres you can print, laminate, and bind two or three copies, provide a basket with three different colours of play-doh and put three black dry-erase markers in a cup. To avoid disagreements about who will use which colour play-doh you can buy the round dot stickers from your local dollar store and place a dot sticker that corresponds to the colour of play-doh for each book on the top right hand corner of the book cover. When students have their time at that centre the teacher can have a laminated sheet (this way you can use a dry erase marker to change the students names as needed insha'Allaah) at the centre (tapped to the table or hung on the wall at the students' eye level) that has the same colour dot and next to it a space for the student's name who will use that colour that day. Students simply look at the chart, find their name and see which colour dot is next to their name and they know which book and which colour play-doh they will use that day. So on Monday, for example, next to the red dot on the sheet is Abul Aziz's name. He will use the handwriting book with the red dot on its cover and the red play- doh to do his work insha'Allaah.

The workbook is not intended to replace direct instruction but is intended to support it. The workbook can be used to allow children extra practice or to assign homework for additional practice insha'Allaah. There are no graphics that will distract the child from the goal of producing precise formation of the letters and attending to the text.

Enjoy insha'Allaah!
