Arabic attached/possessive pronouns

Bismillah,

Here is a worksheet to help review possessive pronouns (attached pronouns). It helps students to identify the possessive in the English sentence and then translate that into the Arabic pronoun they have been taught.

I’m using this worksheet with students who need more revision on this topic and this worksheet inshallah will give them the chance to review them in a format that isn’t my usual table format.

Worksheet on Natural Madd

Bismillah,

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.

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.

Ramadan Arabic worksheet

Bismillah,

Ramadan Mubarak to all Arabic Adventures fans! 🙂

r

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.

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!

Arabic grammar review board game

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.
