Synopsis

Collins Big Cat Arabic Readers Trak!: Level 6 by Charlotte Middleton

Collins Arabic Big Cat is a guided reading series for ages 3 to 11. The series is structured with reference to the learning progression of Arabic at nursery and primary schools researched especially for Collins. This carefully graded approach allows children to build up their reading knowledge of Arabic step by step. Level 6 books provide an advance on level 5. Sentences are still highly repetitive but slightly longer, with simple story development supported by illustrations. Double spacing is used between words to ensure children see where each new word in a sentence begins and ends. Although the focus at level 6 remains on reading the core words, the concept of reading hamzat al-wasl and sun letters correctly is introduced in non-verbal sentences of up to 4-5 words. A colourful retelling of Rudyard Kipling's The Elephant's Child, this fable explains how the elephant got its long trunk. As the elephant journeys through the jungle it admires the features of the other animals, until he gets a bit too close to one of them ...This sweet and funny story has been written and illustrated by Charlotte Middleton. A story map on pages 14-15 allows children to recap the story and discuss each stage.
