Shaddah worksheet

Bismillah,

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.

Verbs in the Qur’an Crossword puzzle

Bismillah,

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.

Arabic Verbs matching game

Bismillah,

Here is an activity I created and used with my 3 classes. It was a good way of helping the girls review the verb list I handed out to them. Check this post out to get your hands on the pdf of a list of verbs oft-used in the Qur’an.

Here is a picture of one of the works by a team who managed to put it all together and presented the game in their own creative way 🙂

Preparation:

I printed the sheets out in colour and laminated each sheet. I then cut out each image (apples) leaving a thin white border around it. Then, I cut each apples in half. I stored each set of verbs in mini ziploc bags.

How I used this resource:

I then asked the girls to place a tick around the verbs they were already familiar with on the page (cover the English to see which ones they could translate without looking).  I then handed out the resources which was played in pairs. Mashallah, the girls got on very well.

Benefits of pair-work:

Students love working together and helping each other. Pair up students who are different abilities to allow them to teach each other and learn not only the material but soft skills too e.g. patience, politeness. The benefits will show up as better class cohesion and healthy competition.

New Arabic Language teaching resources

Bismillah,

Resources_0

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.

http://www.languageguide.org/user/wiki.jsp?lang=ar

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.

http://arabicalmasdar.org/

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.

Hope you find these links helpful iA!
