Demonstrative pronouns worksheet

Bismillah,

This Saturday, the year 10 class will be learning their attached pronouns and demonstrative pronouns. We will also be reviewing the detached pronouns. This is an activity sheet for them to complete.

It helps for them to see that they are using their knowledge of Arabic keywords to slowly translate English sentences.If they understand that they are capable of doing that – insha Allah unconsciously, they will look at new surahs and feel confident enough to translate from the Arabic text itself – by themselves.

So here is the free pdf for the demonstrative pronoun worksheet.

Arabic grammar worksheet

Bismillah,

So far the grammar I have taught or reviewed depending on the class and what they have been taught before is as follow:

  • The definite article
  • Detached pronouns
  • Attached pronouns
  • Demonstratives

I created the following Arabic grammar worksheet as an exercise to help review all these concepts. The lyrics are from an Islamic Arabic nasheed for children and they repeat over and over again. I want them to see that Qur’anic Arabic and the grammar I am teaching can be used to read short Arabic stories or understand songs which is more relevant at their age/stage.

So here is the nasheed:

And here is the activity that accompanies it:

Once the students have completed the exercise, it will be a fun activity to see if they can translate the sentences using previous knowledge and some help from me. Exposing them to Arabic texts at such an early stage is beneficial for them in my opinion.

At the end of this exercise, I’ll get the class to listen to the nasheed and repeat the words.

Juz `Amma `Ilm to `Amal Series

Bismillah,

I was inspired by 1st Ethical’s commitment to making Islam practical and practised by young Muslims. So in that vain, I added a section in the Arabic studies workbooks where we as a class brainstorm ways in which to use the Surah in our lives to become better believers.

The task is for them to do one activity per surah and present it to the class. It can be a craft activity, reflection, poster, a poem and the list goes on….

Here are the activity sheets I made, selected some students to complete them and present to the class:

Surah at-Takweer

Surah al-Ghashiyah

More will be added as they are made.

Surah al-Bayyinah Dominoes game

Juzz Amma Dominoes Game Series

Bismillah,

We’re all familiar with dominoes so I thought why not use them to create a keyword review game. These will be printed on good quality thick paper and then laminated – the school will appreciate the extra work so we don’t have to make them annually!

So this game is for the dominoe game Surah al Bayyinah to help review the vocabulary in a fun way. I’ll store them in a clear plastic sealable bag.

Surah Keywords Lolly sticks Game

Bismillah,

A quick activity to review keywords found in a Surah. I think it’ll be nice for them to play this game in pairs and compete with each other iA. To store them I’m using clear plastic bags which can be bought in bulk of course.

What you need:

  1. Jumbo craft lolly sticks
  2. Sticky labels
  3. Coloured Pen (markers) and normal pen

Instructions:

  • Write the keywords you want on the sticky labels first – you get better handwriting that way!
  • On the first lollypop stick write START using a marker (can also stick a label with START written on it).
  • On the same stick, use your first keyword
  • On the next stick stick the meaning of the first keyword and on and on until you get to the FINISH.
