We use the National Foreign Language Standards for grades KG- Collage for Arabic Language. Please see the attached document below for the standards. 

Course Description
The language program utilizes the series Oheb al-Arabiyah wa Ata'almuha احب العربية واتعلمها that based on the techniques and methods of teaching Arabic as a foreign language. The program is totally based on a communicative approach which is the best way to teach a foreign language. At this level, children will develop their oral skills (Listening and specking). The program uses age-appropriate content and materials as well as story-telling methods, which is the most interesting method for young children. 
The series consists of eight levels, each level includes two books which are:
  1. Student’s Book.
  2. Student's Workbook.
  3. Writing Book. 

Textbook
I love the Arabic Language احب العربية واتعلمها: This series provides a new, integrated approach to teaching Arabic to non-Arabic speakers and is the first European curriculum to equip students with the skills needed to start speaking Arabic almost immediately.
