Gulnar Hajo of the Bright Fingers Publishing House was my find of the day.
Bright Fingers is a six-year-old publishing house located in Damascus, Syria, and you can find a few of their products at www.brightfingers.com, although none of my favorites. (If you’re in Syria, apparently they have stands in supermarkets! Note to Metro and Ragab Sons: I like this idea.)
Bright fingers had two varieties: three- and four-letter words. I also got a beautiful punch-out stencil book, where next to a picture of an أرنب is the large letter أ, which you can punch out and use for various tactile projects. You can paint with it, color with it, sprinkle sand through it, and much more. I can’t wait to get it home to the boys!
I will post photographs as soon as I can, but these are both wonderful, hands-on activities for younger language-learners. Thank you, Bright Fingers!
