بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
I have not been able to post an update on our Arabic for this year. Here is a summary of what we are doing and where we are now.
As you know I did not use Glenn Doman's method to teach Arabic reading with Maimoonah as I did for English. Instead I used the Iqra Books and the Word Flow for Arabic. The progress was slow comparing to English reading but Alhamdulillaah eventually we have got there.
So now Maimoonah has completed the Iqra Books and is able to read Arabic. We have started reading the Qur'aan from Soorah Baqarah. She reads three to four aayaahs every day depending on the length of the aayaahs, she reads more or less. The reason we did not start reading from Juzz Amma is because I noticed that she is not putting effort to read as she has already memorised them. So starting off from Soorah Baqarah is working fine.
We also read Easy Arabic Books from the Children's Library. She is still unable to read without Haraqaat though.
As for Grammar and language we are using the Gateway to Arabic Book 1 and Madeenah Arabic Book 1. She has almost finished the Gate way Book 1. Her writing has improved very much and I still give her to trace to make it better. This book is good for vocabulary too.
As for Madeenah Book 1 I used to make worksheets before but it was time consuming. Alhamdulillaah I found this site (I cannot guarantee the authenticity of the other materials found in this site, so please check before you browse the other stuff) with worksheets for each chapter of the Madeenah Book done by the same author and it really saved time. So now we are using this. She is learning grammar, writing, and vocabulary with these worksheets. Now we have completed about 5 lessons with all worksheets and continuing. It is slow but I really do not mind as long as she gets to understand fully.
She also listens to other Arab kids and tries to use their dialect and talk very little at times.
