It’s been a long while and I’m trying to get back into the groove of creating printables again. I realise I’ve had this printable on my Teachers Pay Teachers store for a while now, but never posted about it on the blog.
Similar to our Arabic Numerals Q-tip Painting Cards, this dot painting activity is designed for preschoolers who have been introduced to Arabic alphabets and who may not be writing yet (pre-writers). By filling in the dots, they gain visual recognition of Arabic alphabets as well as the correct stroke order of writing them. Each card is made up of:
- a letter (in its isolated form) to fill in with markers or Q-tips dipped in paint;
- the name of the letter, e.g. sheen; and
- a picture of the animal, with its beginning sound matching the letter, to colour in!
If you’re new to dot painting, you may be wondering, so how do I use this printable? You will need cotton swabs a.k.a. Q-tips, and some paint (tempera or poster paint recommended). Dip the tip into the paint, then press it onto each dot. The use of this printable is not limited to Q-tips! You may want to let the child experiment with glitter glue or tiny jewel stickers, or simply colour in the dots with markers. I recommend printing out the pages on cardstock or thicker paper of at least 100 gsm.
Your purchase will be a blessing to our family! I would also greatly appreciate if you could leave a product rating and/or feedback on the TPT store so I can continue to improve upon current and future printables in sha Allah. It is my hope that these printables serve as a valuable resource in your children’s Arabic learning journey.
