My year 8s, 9s and 10s are learning 20 verbs that are oft-mentioned in the Qur’an, a useful list which I can work from to help teach concepts such as conjugations in the different tenses, nouns, and keywords in the Qur’an by extension.
E.g. By learning the verb “s-j-d” سَجَدَ I can help students with past/present tense conjugation for the different subject pronouns and help them identify nouns that are created out of this verb e.g. “masjid”. So the verb roots are really the key to making students feel confident in exploring the Qur’an.
Here is a worksheet I will be using in this week’s lesson to review
- Past Tense conjugation
- 20 verbs + English meaning
- Subject pronouns
