Roll and Translate activity Arabic past tense verbs

Bismillah,

Here is an activity that I will be using this Saturday insha Allah. The girls have learnt  the past tense, how to create it in Arabic and translate it from Arabic into English too. Mashallah. So here is a fun activity to be played in pairs to review the 4/5 verbs which occur most in the Qur’an:

Since I don’t have enough die prepared for this week – The girls can simply read through numbers 1-6 in their heads for the partner.

Activity:

  1. Partner A reads umbers 1-6 in their heads
  2. Partner B says stop
  3. Whichever number comes up is the column Partner B has to translate from
  4. Partner B crosses off using their coloured marker
  5. Repeat until everything is crossed off.

I hope you find this activity useful iA.

Motivation

Bismillah,

After a break of three weeks, I’m ready to start posting on the site again. I’ve been busy designing the third part to the Qur’anic Arabic books for Al Barakah school. As we near the end of our second term, motivation is something that begins to wane as the students (and sometimes teachers) get into holiday mode.  I came across a lovely motivational reminder for students that someone had created for their maths class, so I thought why not create one along similar lines for my Arabic students.

 Once I hand it out, I will of course talk through each point and discuss with the girls. The point referring to “techniques” refers to for example our lesson spent on figuring out their preferred and more useful learning techniques to memorise Arabic vocabulary. Each student discovered whether they were visual, auditory or a  kinaesthetic learner. So this point will encourage them to keep using the techniques that they have discovered works best for them.

Please feel free to download and share for yourself, children and classes. Jzk.

Arabic grammar lesson starter

Bismillah,

Here is the lesson starter that I will be using for this upcoming lesson for all three of the classes. I’m going to cut the strips and put them in a bag. Not all the girls will get a strip so 6 of them will be chosen to come up and explain a grammar point each to the class. That way everyone has been given a task and has participated. The girls who come up to explain their given grammar point will be allowed to do a role play, ask questions to the class, sing the pronoun song and obviously use the board to write on.

Here is the pdf for the Arabic grammar starter question strips.

 Edit: Someone requested the answers to the above questions so I’ve created a sheet that includes the answers. I hope they prove useful iA.
