    Assalamu alaykum,

    Our Arabic curriculum is very unique as we develop it in school. We continuously improve our resources hence you will not be able to find a similar one elsewhere.

We hope you will find this helpful in understanding what is being taught in class and also hope it will help you prompt children to tell you more about what is being taught in class.
