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
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.
Here is a video to help you with the instrctions. You only need one sheet of paper and scissors and it’s that easy! Alhamdolilah. I’m not going to give my students this pdf just yet, instead I’ll let them design their own and use my one as one to get the content from.
Hope you enjoy making this with your class or children!
