Early years Arabic: Blindfold alphabet game

Bsimillah,

A game idea to teach Arabic alphabet recognition to the younger children.

feel letter

The children love playing this game. They wear a blindfold (or close their eyes) and guess the letter shape by feeling it. If you use textured (glittery) foam cut out into the letter shape and stuck onto smooth foam, it works really well and really makes the children think about the shape and where the dots are placed.

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:

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.

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.

Detached pronoun review sheet

Bismillah,

This sheet was designed when I realised that the students in year 8 needed to actually learn their detached pronouns because they had not been taught all of them previously.  I made  flashcards on detached pronouns as well so I could teach them and review them too (the fridge copy will be sent a week early, so I’m hoping some parents have helped their children learn them already!).

This review sheet will be used to test their knowledge insha Allah!

Hope this helps with your students. Please leave a comment or suggestion to help improve this site.

Surah Al-Bayyinah crossword quiz

Bismillah,

The test set for this week for the students learning Surah al-Bayyinah this term was to memorize the keywords from the surah. So I thought, rather than making a straightforward vocabulary test where they input the correct Arabic/English keyword, why not give them an Arabic-English crossword to solve. I can always test their knowledge of keywords in other ways, such as by using flashcards.

Qur’anic Arabic translation activity

Bismillah,

One of the goals of Al Barakah Arabic department is to help students with the ability to translate the surahs found in Juzz `Amma by themselves. This is done through the teaching of keywords/vocabulary found in the surah and simple grammar points that can be found within a specific surah. The children also learn the Tafsir – themes and context of the Surah. I think it’s a great way for non-native Arabic speaking children to connect with the Qur’an and the curriculum is fantastic! (Not because I designed the advance Arabic textbooks but because the organisers are so passionate that only Qur’anic Arabic is taught – any other kind of Arabic can be learnt any where else).

So here is a translation worksheet  I’ve designed to informally test how much of the previously learnt keywords they have retained and to pass along the translation techniques I myself picked up at Oxford.
