Arabic Twinkl Phonics “Hurouf Twinkl” follows a new approach to learning the Arabic language, focusing on making phonics enjoyable through storytelling. This approach aims to build conversational, reading, and writing skills by emphasizing the understanding of letter sounds and their connection to shapes. It's considered a fundamental stage in early childhood development.

The Ideas That Inspired Twinkl Arabic Phonics
Recognizing that the Arabic language is going through a critical phase where it is at risk of losing its value, we focused on building a supportive foundation for children from an early age. Our goal is to instill a love for the Arabic language in children and dispel the notion that Arabic is difficult. We relied on innovative and modern methods to cultivate a passion for the language.
We also started with gradual levels, dividing the letters into groups to make it easier for students to learn Arabic confidently.
Key Features of Twinkl Arabic Phonics
Our letter stories are tailored to each group of letters. Each letter has its own story and character, indirectly teaching children the sound and pronunciation of the letter, along with diacritics and movements. Each story is followed by a series of interactive exercises to assess students' understanding of the letter and story.
Twinkl Arabic Phonics’ Resources
The resources in Twinkl Arabic Phonics are graded, covering pre-writing and reading skills up to advanced stages. There are various activities related to constructing phonetic segments, words, and sentences, as well as lesson plans and semester assessments. We have designed everything you need for teaching Arabic to children.
A series of guided reading stories are provided according to each stage. It also provides cards that enable students to search for images, attempt to read the sentence, and create an expressive drawing based on the story. These resources nurture a passion for learning Arabic in students and represent a new phase in developing Arabic language teaching methods for students.
Vision and Goals of Twinkl Arabic Phonics
Our goal is to boost children's confidence in using the Arabic language and connect it to play and daily experiences. We rely on letter sounds to teach proper child conversation skills, such as image reading and description, as well as activities involving dialogue and idea exchange.
We also rely on interactive activities, games, and linking Arabic language teaching with play, exploration, and problem-solving, rather than the traditional approach of presenting and drawing letters. Young children possess latent abilities that we must direct in the right direction to achieve the best results and elevate the Arabic language to higher levels.
