Fruit: Level 4 (Collins Big Cat Arabic Reading Programme)
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 4 books are for children who are ready to start to read stories with simple single words or non-verbal sentences with 2 or 3 words, and with total support through illustrations and extensive use of repetition. Double spacing is used between words to ensure children see where each new word in a sentence begins and ends, and with the focus on reading core words. This non-fiction book explores the different types of fruit the children like to eat, with mouth-watering photographs of melons, oranges, strawberries and much more. Pages 14-15 provide a summary of the different fruits and where they grow, to consolidate understanding of the book.
