Definite article review

Bismillah,

Now that it has been agreed that there will be no use of social media symbols in the textbooks, I am free to publish activities which were included in the books. Apart from that I cannot publish other activities I have included in the books as I signed away the copyright. We aim to make the books available in the UK market in 2016 bi’ithnillah. I’m so excited for that moment as Muslim schools across London are waiting for Al Barakah school to sell such a product. I am deeply grateful to Allah for choosing me to work on it. Ya rabb keep my niyyah pure and accept this from me. Ameen.

It was interesting to see that the older girls didn’t bat an eyelid when they first saw such activities in the books. It was only the 12 year olds (year 8) who were surprised by it. It would be interesting to see what causes that change and in such a short space of time.

The following activities may not be to everyone’s taste/beliefs but teachers up and down the country use such materials in schools so I thought why not for Qur’anic Arabic.

Early Years: Breaking down Arabic words

Bismillah,

This worksheet takes words from the Qur’an and asks the student to separate the words into letters – you can ask them to write them in their isolated form or their broken letter forms, for example:  “fa in the beginning” , “yaa in the middle” and “laam in the end”.

Early years Arabic: Blindfold alphabet game

Bsimillah,

A game idea to teach Arabic alphabet recognition to the younger children.

feel letter

The children love playing this game. They wear a blindfold (or close their eyes) and guess the letter shape by feeling it. If you use textured (glittery) foam cut out into the letter shape and stuck onto smooth foam, it works really well and really makes the children think about the shape and where the dots are placed.

Demonstrative pronouns worksheet

Bismillah,

This Saturday, the year 10 class will be learning their attached pronouns and demonstrative pronouns. We will also be reviewing the detached pronouns. This is an activity sheet for them to complete.

It helps for them to see that they are using their knowledge of Arabic keywords to slowly translate English sentences.If they understand that they are capable of doing that – insha Allah unconsciously, they will look at new surahs and feel confident enough to translate from the Arabic text itself – by themselves.

So here is the free pdf for the demonstrative pronoun worksheet.

Arabic grammar worksheet

Bismillah,

So far the grammar I have taught or reviewed depending on the class and what they have been taught before is as follow:

  • The definite article
  • Detached pronouns
  • Attached pronouns
  • Demonstratives

I created the following Arabic grammar worksheet as an exercise to help review all these concepts. The lyrics are from an Islamic Arabic nasheed for children and they repeat over and over again. I want them to see that Qur’anic Arabic and the grammar I am teaching can be used to read short Arabic stories or understand songs which is more relevant at their age/stage.

So here is the nasheed:

And here is the activity that accompanies it:

hiba2-page-001

Once the students have completed the exercise, it will be a fun activity to see if they can translate the sentences using previous knowledge and some help from me. Exposing them to Arabic texts at such an early stage is beneficial for them in my opinion.

At the end of this exercise, I’ll get the class to listen to the nasheed and repeat the words.
