Verbs in the Qur’an Crossword puzzle

Bismillah,

A fun activity to help my Year 9 girls learn 20 Verbs mentioned in the Qur’an. I’ve only picked 20 to make it easy for the girls as most of them get a lot of homework from school. I think a crossword puzzle will help them see which ones they can remember and which ones they need to sit down and learn.

Arabic subject pronouns game

Bismillah,

Here is a good hands-on activity to help students review Subject pronouns in Arabic. It is a match up activity and can be used in a variety of ways.

hiba3

An example would be to set up a competition in the class to see how fast students can match up the pronouns to their meaning. When we played this game, the kids had so much fun and I loved seeing them enjoying Arabic so much alhamdolillah.

I printed out enough for each child to use and laminated both the mat and the cut outs to allow me to use this resource across the school. I now wish I had printed it double sided to save paper but it works out fine either way.

Arabic Verbs matching game

Bismillah,

Here is an activity I created and used with my 3 classes. It was a good way of helping the girls review the verb list I handed out to them. Check this post out to get your hands on the pdf of a list of verbs oft-used in the Qur’an.

Here is a picture of one of the works by a team who managed to put it all together and presented the game in their own creative way 🙂

Preparation:

I printed the sheets out in colour and laminated each sheet. I then cut out each image (apples) leaving a thin white border around it. Then, I cut each apples in half. I stored each set of verbs in mini ziploc bags.

How I used this resource:

I then asked the girls to place a tick around the verbs they were already familiar with on the page (cover the English to see which ones they could translate without looking).  I then handed out the resources which was played in pairs. Mashallah, the girls got on very well.

Benefits of pair-work:

Students love working together and helping each other. Pair up students who are different abilities to allow them to teach each other and learn not only the material but soft skills too e.g. patience, politeness. The benefits will show up as better class cohesion and healthy competition.

Ramadan Arabic worksheet

Bismillah,

Ramadan Mubarak to all Arabic Adventures fans! 🙂

r

Last week’s lesson for the older girls focused on reading on Ramadan in Arabic and reviewing Arabic grammar concepts using the text. It was a lovely exercise to go through because the girls recognized a lot of the words. An example of how you can use the text is below:

  •  Highlight the words you recognize from previous knowledge. (Help students at this stage by reminding them of similar words they may know). 
  • Ask students to circle any detached/attached pronouns. The ones which are not on the text, write them down at the back of the page.
  • The same task as above but with demonstratives, prepositions, sound plurals and verbs.
  • Give students the new vocab that are in the text and they don’t know from before.

Please note this text was taken from the Mawdoo3 website. It’s an Arabic wikipedia of sorts. The original article can be found HERE.

Arabic Past and Present Tense Fill in the Blank worksheet

Bismillah,

Here is an activity that I was meaning to create for a while now to use in my teaching. A nice way to show and review the prefixes and suffixes attached to the core verb root to conjugate it for different subject pronouns.

I’m going to print this document double sided so I end up with only one sheet for each student. Then I’ll laminate the sheet so the students can fill in the blank using a dry erase whiteboard marker.

Here is the pdf of Arabic tenses Fill in the Blank activity sheet.
