Arabic Present Tense jigsaw set

Bismillah,

Here is a jigsaw type activity that I have put together to help the girls review Arabic present tense conjugation parts.  To help them see the different parts that make up present tense for each subject pronoun.

Laminate the sheets and store in a sealed bag and re-use as needed. I’m going to make this a pair activity so I will only need half the number I would’ve needed.

Here is the pdf of the Arabic Present Tense jigsaw

Qur’anic Arabic Verbs flashcards

Bismillah,

I’ve created these flashcards of verbs in the Qur’an for use with my classes. I will cut out the meaning and stick to the back of the verbs and then laminate the verb sheets. That way the students will be able to play a game with their partner to help them memorize them.

I have chosen interesting looking pictures so that it will be easier for the visual learners to remember iA.

Here is the pdf for the QUR’ANIC ARABIC FLASHCARDS

Arabic Verbs conjugating game

Bismillah,

Here is a neat activity to use as a starter or to finish off the lesson. It’s a game to be played in pairs. I am going to laminate it so the ones they have completed can be crosses off using a dry erase board marker and the sheet will still be usable with other classes.

Arabic verbs Tic-Tac-Toe

Bismillah,

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.

So here is the pdf for the Arabic Verbs Tic Tac Toe activity.

Arabic present tense cut out activity

Bismillah,

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 spy an Arabic verb…

Bismillah, glass 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. sticks

Hope this helps in your teaching!

How to choose the right Arabic course!

Bismillah,

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:
