The following worksheets were created by my sister, also a teacher for class 4 ( 7-8 year olds). I’ve created one blogpost for them to make it easy to download and print the worksheets as they cover one concept: Natural Madd.
Ideally, these worksheets are sent home over a holiday period and used to reinforce the learning over the term.
Here is a worksheet to review Shaddah with students. Using mini whiteboards is a fun and easy way to teach reading, writing and listening of basic Arabic grammar concepts. It works well in the classroom and helps when trying to informally assess students in their mastery of a particular grammar rule.
A fun activity to help my Year 9 girls learn 20 Verbs mentioned in the Qur’an. I’ve only picked 20 to make it easy for the girls as most of them get a lot of homework from school. I think a crossword puzzle will help them see which ones they can remember and which ones they need to sit down and learn.

I hope you find this resource useful insha Allah!

Here’s an activity to help children to recognize words containing fat7atayn and kasratayn. Also, to build on this task, you can ask children to recite the words to help with reading and pronunciation practice.
Last week’s lesson for the older girls focused on reading on Ramadan in Arabic and reviewing Arabic grammar concepts using the text. It was a lovely exercise to go through because the girls recognized a lot of the words. An example of how you can use the text is below:
Highlight the words you recognize from previous knowledge. (Help students at this stage by reminding them of similar words they may know).
Ask students to circle any detached/attached pronouns. The ones which are not on the text, write them down at the back of the page.
The same task as above but with demonstratives, prepositions, sound plurals and verbs.
Give students the new vocab that are in the text and they don’t know from before.
Please note this text was taken from the Mawdoo3 website. It’s an Arabic wikipedia of sorts. The original article can be found HERE.
Here are a few Arabic language teaching resources I have come across that you may also find helpful in some way. I’ve been watching, downloading and reading everything Arabic teaching related these past few weeks and I’ve really enjoyed myself so here is a small selection of what I have come across:
Pictorial wiki – A site to help you learn Arabic vocabulary. The nice thing about this site is that the words are organised into categories. Each category has a picture and once you hover over the picture it will show you the word in Arabic and whether it is masculine/feminine.
Al-Masdar (Qatar Foundation International) – This is the section of the QFI site that has Language teaching resources as well as Arab Cultural resources. Full of resources for teachers. Take your pick.
Arabic Teacher Training and Cultural Programme – I’ve only watched the first two videos. They are aimed at teachers teaching Arabic speaking, reading and writing full-time. I’ve picked up points here and there and would like to do a separate blog post on them with a summary of each video.
Here is a board game I’ll be using in my class as a quick and fun way to review what has been taught previously. We are on half-term holidays for a week so the girls will need some help reviewing the previous grammar concepts.

I will laminate this sheet and it will be a pair activity. You will also need dice and counters for this game.
