The time required for the student to complete Gurmukhi Workbooks 1 and 2 is as follows:
- One letter taught per day = 6 weeks or 1.5 months
- One letter taught per week = 44 weeks or 11 months
- Two letters taught per week = 22 weeks or 5.5 months
Gurmukhi Workbook 1 Layout
Gurmukhi Workbooks 1 and 2 follow the same layout. There are engaging and fun activities for the student to complete for each of the 40 Gurmukhi letters. For each of the letters, the student is provided with the following activities:
- Identify and circle the letter
- Identify and colour the letter
- Follow the letter in a maze
- Write the letter
These activities are designed to help the student with:
- Letter recognition
- Name of each letter
- Sound of each letter
- Writing of each letter
In Gurmukhi Workbook 2 the student also learns to read and write ‘Mukta’ words, that is, words that are spelt with Gurmukhi letters only and no Gurmukhi symbols (Laga Matra).
Gurmukhi symbols are introduced in Gurmukhi Workbook 3.
In Gurmukhi Workbooks 1 and 2, for each of the forty Gurmukhi letters, the student is introduced to two Panjabi words. To help build the student’s Panjabi word bank, over one hundred Panjabi words are included across the two workbooks.
Panjabi Vocabulary Colouring Book
The two workbooks can be used as Panjabi vocabulary colouring books, for the young student. To help make learning meaningful and engaging for the student, each of the forty Gurmukhi letters are accompanied by beautiful black and white illustrations. These illustrations can be used as pictures to colour.
