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

Arabic Grammar Lapbook – free pack

Bismillah,

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.

Here is the free 10 page PDF of the Arabic Grammar Lapbook

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:

Arabic past tense worksheet

Bismillah,

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.

Arabic verbs explanation worksheet

Bismillah,

Here is a worksheet that I’ve created to review the concept of the Arabic verb system which I explained in the previous lesson. I will also introduce the past tense to my year 8 class and the explanation is in their workbooks.  The task for them is to extract bullet points about the past tense and create a revision resource for themselves.

Arabic verb roots activity

Bismillah,

The latest grammar rule I introduced to the Year 8s was the Arabic verb root system. Telling them that if they learnt this correctly, they would know 50% of Arabic seemed to do the trick. For me to have even gotten their attention after teaching them 6 grammar rules already was a massive deal. But Allah made things easy for me alhamdolillah!

I introduced the 3 Arabic verb roots as 3 roots of a tree. The fruit the tree has are the words that can be made out of the three roots. Obviously, it will take many more lessons to even get 50% of the class to grasp this weird and wonderful language concept.

Here is an activity I created to help the girls grasp an idea that we talked about related to the Arabic verb system: words are created using the three root letters and additional letters.
