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.

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.

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 🙂

Early years Arabic: Velcro Game

Bismillah,

Velcro Game

There are many different variations to how this game can be played. It is true that Alphabet board are easily available online – but they can be expensive when you are buying several for your classroom. So instead why not make your own and use it in multiple ways.

alphabets

This is a bit like a jigsaw puzzle, the children have to arrange the letters in order. Once done you can ask them to point out the heavy letters or the naughty letters etc. Or you can go round the children asking them to name the letter, they get to hold on to it if they get it right and the one with the most letters at the end is the winner.

Early years Arabic: Lollipop stick game

Bismillah,

A fellow Arabic teachers of the younger years at our Islamic Saturday school has shared many of her ideas and games with me on how to teach and review the Arabic alphabets.

Here is the Lollipop sticks game:

loliipo sticks

This game is a fun way to reinforce the learning of new letters. The children are given lollipop sticks with letters (laminated and velcroed) on them corresponding to the letters they are learning that week; eg: ba, ta, tha. The teacher calls out a letter and they lift the stick they think is correct.
