Sensory Steps. Just glue plastic, wash clothes, make-up sponges, fur fabric, squishy wash netting, etc to cardboard. When it dries, cut around edges. Glue shelf liner on the other side. And you are done. Enjoy hours of activities!
@balancedlitdiet ---> "Drive-Thru Blending". Get students excited about phonics! Children say letter-sounds as they 'driving a car' through them and blend them. It's incredible to see how quickly this decoding game catches on!
As I'm personally following Arabic with Husna, I can HIGHLY recommend it. Br. Nouman Ali Khan makes the lessons fun, interesting and easy to follow. There are over 75 videos (and this is growing weekly), as well as helpful handouts. Suitable from 10 years. Bonus: You get to watch Br. Nouman interact with his daughter, adorable!
