Marhaba! Student Daftar, Full Year, 5-Pack

Marhaba! Student Daftar, Full Year, 5-Pack

An Invitation to Arabic

At the beginning of every term, students receive a blank daftar. Students use this notebook as their primary tool for learning Arabic: almost all of their learning is recorded in it or occurs through its use. Your students personalize their learning by recording the lesson in their own handwriting. These pages become a reference for them throughout the year, building a sense of responsibility and ownership for their learning.

The student daftars have the Arabic alphabet and vocabulary lists in the back, and are conveniently available for purchase in packs of 5. This particular set contains a total of 20 daftars, in four 5-packs: one for each term. You save 20% with this bundle, when compared to buying each term individually.
