Early Years Arabic: The Bingo Bismillah game

Bismillah,

Bingo Game

Laminate the sheets with letters (start with sheets with foll form and then work your way to the broken letters and end up with joint letters). The teacher calls out a letter and they find it and circle it on their sheets using whiteboard pens which can then be wiped and reused. At the end the class shouts out “Bingo Bismillah” together ūüôā

Arabic Vocab Board game

Bismillah,

After 4 years of learning Arabic, if there’s one thing I’ve learnt it would be the importance of constantly reviewing vocabulary.¬†Teaching¬†yrs 8-10 means the age range for them is 13-16. Teenagers! So I had to find a way of helping them to review all the vocabulary for the surahs they have learnt so far at Al Barakah. The solution: Arabic monopoly game.

I use simple file folders that can be found at any major store. The¬†monopoly boardgame pdf¬†only has the options of “vocab” [both eng-arab/arab[eng] and Q-cards which have questions that test them on the tafsir of the surahs they learnt in previous years.

All the  question cards  are relevant to the al Barakah Arabic syllabus. I glued the cards to coloured card and cut around them to give a nice border. I store these game cards in a Ziploc bag for safe keeping.

The monopoly-ish looking board game will be played by one team for 15 minutes, while the other teams work on another activity. The girls will then rotate. The board game printable can be used as your class requires.
