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 ūüôā

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.

Fridge copy grammar review sheet

Bismillah,

Every week the parents receive a weekly update on what was taught and ways in which the parents can help their children. This week I’m attaching this grammar sheet for them to print and stick on their fridge door. It’s a way to ensure that by the time they come for their next Arabic lesson on Saturday that they are ahead of the game insha Allah.

Each grammar review series will only cover a few grammar points at a time. This is the first one:

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.

Attached pronouns

Bismillah,

The students have previously learnt the concept of attached pronouns in Arabic. I have to make sure that they have understood the concept and can add the attached pronouns to the noun correctly. Since this is Qur’anic Arabic, I have chosen two keywords from Surah al-`Alaq that a simple to use.

Here’s the¬†attached pronoun practise¬†worksheet:

Arabic Vocab Board game

Bismillah,

After 4 years of learning Arabic, if there’s one thing I’ve learnt it would be the importance of constantly reviewing vocabulary.¬†Teaching¬†yrs 8-10 means the age range for them is 13-16. Teenagers! So I had to find a way of helping them to review all the vocabulary for the surahs they have learnt so far at Al Barakah. The solution: Arabic monopoly game.

board game

I use simple file folders that can be found at any major store. The¬†monopoly boardgame pdf¬†only has the options of “vocab” [both eng-arab/arab[eng] and Q-cards which have questions that test them on the tafsir of the surahs they learnt in previous years.

monopoly game pdf-page-001

All the  question cards  are relevant to the al Barakah Arabic syllabus. I glued the cards to coloured card and cut around them to give a nice border. I store these game cards in a Ziploc bag for safe keeping.

The monopoly-ish looking board game will be played by one team for 15 minutes, while the other teams work on another activity. The girls will then rotate. The board game printable can be used as your class requires.
