Abla and her Wonderful Coat Level 8

Abla and her Wonderful Coat Level 8

Author: Laura Hambleton Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 18/02/2016

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 8 books are becoming more complex, although still strongly patterned but to a lesser extent than level 7. Although the focus remains on vowelling to aid the flow of reading with verbal sentences of up to 8-10 words, level 8 books have more events and episodes, fewer repeated patterns, and more complex vocabulary. Non-fiction titles use non-fiction tools - including signs, labels, captions and diagrams - where necessary. Double spacing is used between words to ensure children see where each new word in a sentence begins and ends. Abla the goat loves her red coat and Thalooba the fox loves his spotty socks - but he wants Abla's coat too, and sets out to steal it from her. Will Abla and Thalooba ever be able to find a compromise to keep them both happy?
