My Persian alphabet
The goal of this project has been to boost the earliest stages of literacy development in children bilingual in Swedish and Persian. My Persian alphabet has been created to serve as a tool that will help children recognize the capital (isolated) letters of the Persian script and be able to sound them. It aims at de-dramatizing the Persian script both in terms of level of difficulty and perceived cultural distance, encouraging the children to interact with it. In using this tool, hopefully the child will think that the Persian alphabet is neither that different from the latin one nor difficult. The components of My Persian alphabet are a poster and a box of letter cards. They help the emergent reader to relate to the shapes of the Persian alphabet and learn the sounds of the letters, using the transference of phonological skills between alphabets.
