Our Mu Karanta Hausa Big Books for Primary 1, 2 and 3 teach literacy through a carefully-graded programme, which also includes handwriting. The programme meets all the demands of the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC) curriculum for Hausa. It combines the merits of the phonics and look-and-say methods, whilst reflecting children’s oral knowledge of local stories, cultural traditions, games and word-play.
The 64-page Big Books are an effective, easy resource for teachers. They are A4 size, spiral-bound, and beautifully illustrated in full colour.
Each Big Book page offers beautiful pictures with text for pupils to read. The Big Books are an invaluable teachers’ resource, since they include footnotes with basic literacy methodology. The 64 pages of the separate Teacher’s Guides provide page-by-page suggestions corresponding to each page of the Big Books. No stress, no heavy text.
