Here is a quick activity intended as a starter activity to help my students learn to translate the verbs they have been learning in these past few lessons. The game uses ayaat from the Qur’an which fits in well with their syllabus.
The game is easy – Tic Tac Toe but with a Qur’anic Arabic twist.
Inshallah I’m going to laminate the sheet so that the students can put crosses on the sheet using dry erase board markers. That way this resource can be re-used for many years to come iA.
Hope this helps iA,

Here is the pdf worksheet for the Arabic present tense (Fi’il Mudari’). I’ll be using this sheet in this Saturday’s lesson with all three of my classes insha Allah.
It’s a simple cut out activity where students need to place the correct cut out in the present tense table. This worksheet will be given after we have read through the explanation.
The act of cutting out will help those students who are kinesthetic learners. The colours will help the visual learners and for auditory learners it will be useful to ask them to read the cut outs out loud as they stick them on the table.
I hope this helps you iA.

Bismillah, I’ve created this resource for my class to help them practice conjugating verbs in the past tense. Each student will be given one what I am going to call an “I spy stick” which has one verb on it that appears in the Qur’an. They’ll have time to conjugate the verb they have been given in the past tense and then I’ll call out: “I spy an Arabic verb beginning with the letter …” and whoever has the verb beginning with that letter will read out their answer. It’s just a fun way to get the lesson started and to incorporate an interactive activity into the lesson.
You’re welcome to create this resource for your class too. I laminated the pages and used a double sided tape to stick the images onto the large lollipop sticks.
Hope this helps in your teaching!
So you decide that you want to learn Arabic and proceed to enrol yourself on a course, buy textbooks and audio CDs/DVDs. Two three weeks into the course you realise you still can’t hold a conversation with your Arab friend or read the Qur’an and understand it in its original Arabic like you had hoped. So you quit disappointed and put off learning Arabic for another year.
The above is a classic case of what many enthusiastic Arabic learners go through. To avoid getting disappointed and wasting precious time, ask yourself this ONE question:
What do you want to use your Arabic language skills for?
- Is it to read and understand the Qur’an in Arabic?
- To hold a conversation with your Arab friends without getting laughed at for sounding like a news reporter, order a shawarma in Lebanon or qahwa in Cairo?
- To write a formal letter to the head of a company in the Gulf or become an Arabic translator?
Based on the answers to the above, go ahead and choose the right type of Arabic course that will help you achieve your goals, allow you to enjoy your Arabic learning journey and save you time and money!
Here’s an infographic on the kinds of courses you might find out there:

We are currently on our spring break for two weeks. I’m using the extra time available to plan and create more resources for the coming term. We had a very fruitful Arabic staff meeting and Alhamdolillah as a result we feel like we know where we are heading as a team and a department.
The first lesson back after a long break is usually where we spend time reviewing the grammar concepts we have covered so far. The 3rd term is insha Allah where I am going to prepare the girls for their end of year exam. So reviewing is going to be a major theme for us this coming term iA.
So, this is what the girls from my 3 classes will be making for themselves. If hey ever leave Al Barakah school they have a hands on resource with all Arabic grammar in one place. I’ve left things blank for them to fill out in their own words and style.
You will need a document folder cut open or you can use any folder you have available. I am going to go for the cheapest option as I will be getting all 3 classes to be making one each.
Here is what the pages look like and some pics I took of what I made as a sample:

SubhanAllah, another term at Al Barakah is coming to an end and unlike the first term, this one has flown by. But time usually goes fast when you’re having so much fun.
To remind the girls to review their Arabic grammar over the holidays, I went out and bought a few goodies for the girls to celebrate how well they have done this term masha Allah! For example, my year 10s were able to translate the first few sentences of the story of Habil and Qabil in Arabic using previous knowledge of vocabulary and Arabic grammar they have learnt so far. That is a huge achievement and I was blown away in class with how well they translated the text!
So here is a peak at the goodies 🙂
The above is for my little year 8s. I’ve just added a little tag to each present – lolly pop dips. If you want to print this class for your class, here is the PDF Dip tag.
Here are the presents for my year 10s and 9s. Crisps with their own tag. If you want to print your own tag, here is the PDF Chip tag.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Your comments and suggestions are most welcome!
A cut out and paste activity I will be using as an activity for my next lesson. It’s very easy to do and insha Allah will help to review the Arabic past tense. Some girls are kinathestic learners so it will be especially good for them. The red and black is good for visual learners and I will get the girls who are auditory learners to say the verbs out as they cut and paste them.
