Gardens of Arabic cards
These Arabic cards are an awesome resource for learning to read. I would advise them to be used for those already pretty fluent in knowing the Arabic letters and their sounds and wanting to learn how to put them together. ⠀ ⠀ The cards in the beginning of the packet are meant to be used as flashcards, and printed and taped together to become front/back cards. The three letter words are split on one side into the three letters, and then put together into one word on the other side. This was my favorite part and it is pictured laminated for ease of use! ⠀ ⠀ The cards are made to be used in levels, one color after the other, the colors and stars signifying each level, until you get better and fluent enough to move on to the next level.⠀ ⠀ Even within the same color, there are different levels for each lesson, which was very nice to use in a way that increases Arabic fluency.⠀ ⠀ The levels increases to show harakat in different places in the words. This is very useful, as well as the strongest teaching cards of the whole bunch. It shows harakat in different areas, and is perfect for those learning Arabic to increase fluency in recognizing the dama, fatha, and kasra (pictured) ⠀ The cards also teach sukoon, tanween (double harakas), and mads (an expanded haraka that becomes a whole letter like alif, waw, or yaa). They teach the Lam Qamariyeh and Lam Shamsiyeh, which help in recognizing how to pronounce Arabic words starting with AL better.⠀ ⠀ I also like how the Arabic includes Quranic and Islamic references, and so helps those who are trying to learn to increase their deen. ⠀ To make these Arabic cards perfect for beginners, I would like to see the beginning of the packet be only the arabic letters and their transliterations, as well as add the transliterations to the words later on to help with fluency. These can also be made as flashcards to help with memory. I loved the flashcard part! ⠀ Check @gardensofarabic out and get your own printable cards, as well as other awesome resources they make!
