I don’t know about you, but December is a very busy month for me! My progress on these Arabic Alphabet Mazes have been quite slow, as it takes time to find the right clipart or images for each letter. Today, I’m releasing four more mazes for letters د (dal) to ز (zay).
These mazes are designed for preschoolers who are developing recognition of individual letters of the Arabic alphabet in their isolated forms. By following the focus letter through the maze, their visual recognition of the letter is increased via repetition. They also learn to differentiate between letters that have very similar forms, e.g. س and ش. I did make some of the mazes quite tricky!
You can have the child use Do-A-Dot markers, small round magnets, stickers, pom poms, dry-erase markers, crayons (by colouring in each box), or even just a good old pencil. I recommend slipping the printouts into transparent sheet protectors or laminating them, so your child can do the mazes over and over again, which would certainly help in developing recognition!
I posted a picture on Instagram to show you how we use round magnets on the maze:

Feel free to share this printable with your friends. If you do so, please link to this blog post instead of linking directly to the file. I pray that this free resource will be a blessing to you and your family, in sya Allah! If you have any feedback or questions, I would love to hear from you in the comments.
As I’m still working on the printables in this series, the release schedule will not be fixed. However, I do aim to release the subsequent parts every fortnight, in sya Allah. I also have many more Arabic printables for preschoolers in the works. Subscribe to my blog to get updated whenever I release new FREE printables!
