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.

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.
I hope you find it useful worksheet to use in your class.
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.
I hope you find this a useful activity insha Allah.

Sister Abeer, a fellow Arabic teacher at Al Barakah school has given me permission to publish her Arabic printables. Alhamdolillah. So the following posts will be her work unless stated otherwise.
Here is the first worksheet that covers
This is the worksheet I used for my year 4 class several years ago. It covers the rules they were learning at the time:
- Arabic alphabet handwriting
- Long vowels, short vowels
Here’s the pdf for the above: Recap worksheet pdf
Now that it has been agreed that there will be no use of social media symbols in the textbooks, I am free to publish activities which were included in the books. Apart from that I cannot publish other activities I have included in the books as I signed away the copyright. We aim to make the books available in the UK market in 2016 bi’ithnillah. I’m so excited for that moment as Muslim schools across London are waiting for Al Barakah school to sell such a product. I am deeply grateful to Allah for choosing me to work on it. Ya rabb keep my niyyah pure and accept this from me. Ameen.
It was interesting to see that the older girls didn’t bat an eyelid when they first saw such activities in the books. It was only the 12 year olds (year 8) who were surprised by it. It would be interesting to see what causes that change and in such a short space of time.
The following activities may not be to everyone’s taste/beliefs but teachers up and down the country use such materials in schools so I thought why not for Qur’anic Arabic.
The Definite Article worksheet pdf
I’ve just created this quick activity to review the detached pronouns, possessive pronouns and prepositions from the grammar points sheets I’ve covered in previous posts.
This true/false activity is a fun activity and I’ll be using it as an activity to be completed in pairs insha Allah.
Here is the pdf for the true/false Arabic grammar activity.
My year 10s have now moved on to Surah `Abasa masha Allah. We have so far covered the following:
- Surah at-Takweer recitation of Arabic
- Surah at-Takweer tafsir, key themes and action points for daily life derived from this Surah
- Grammar points: The definite article, detached pronouns, attached pronouns, demonstrative pronouns and prepositions.
In the last lesson, we covered the recitation and brief Tafsir of Surah `Abasa. The students have been given the research of this Surah’s tafsir as h/w as well as to complete one action point.
They can choose one from the following:
