Up for a challenge? Use the following worksheet will help you learn at least 20 keywords that regularly occur through out the Qur’an.
I will be using this worksheet with my Year 10s to help them revise the 20 words. I’ve uploaded the keywords and example ayaahs here for those of you who are learning them for the first time.
With Ramadan coming up – it will be useful to learn keywords to understand the Qur’an in Arabic as you recite it during the day, in prayers, in Taraweeh and when the Imam recites ayaat containing these keywords.
Enjoy! Hope you manage to learn all 20 inshallah!

The last session of the Kids Halaqa was focused on the Tafsir of Surah al-Nasr.

Alhamdolillah, I found a lovely breakdown of the Tafsir of Surah al-Nasr explained by Brother Nouman Ali Khan.
A lovely, short video which challenged the older girls and allowed them to engage with the Surah on a deeper level.
The video I used is below:
Working off the Tafsir of this Surah, I focused on the theme of seeking of forgiveness from Allah and specifically the du3a of Yunus when he was in the belly of the whale. I felt I hadn’t given this aspect of the story more attention in the Pumpkin party.
So the girls in pairs brainstormed what steps might be involved in seeking forgiveness. Which then led to the following activity:

Kids then coloured in the whales in their chosen shade of blue. I decided to use these little double sided squares to stick the cut out onto the clothes peg.
The little mini Surahs that show up in the middle need some adjustment to make sure it can be seen clearly – play around with it a little bit and it should work out. Interestingly, this turned out to be a good revision resource for this little dua3.
HERE is a website with clear pictures and instructions on how to put together the above activity!
The end result…
I hope you found these resources useful inshallah.

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.

Here’s an activity to help children to recognize words containing fat7atayn and kasratayn. Also, to build on this task, you can ask children to recite the words to help with reading and pronunciation practice.

I hope you find this activity sheet useful.
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 🙂
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.
Here is an example of what the resource pdf looks like:
Hope your students find this activity as fun as my students did insha Allah 🙂

Ramadan Mubarak to all Arabic Adventures fans! 🙂
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.
I hope you fidn this resource helpful iA.

Here is a board game I’ll be using in my class as a quick and fun way to review what has been taught previously. We are on half-term holidays for a week so the girls will need some help reviewing the previous grammar concepts.

I will laminate this sheet and it will be a pair activity. You will also need dice and counters for this game.

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.
I hope you find this helpful insha Allah!

Here is a jigsaw type activity that I have put together to help the girls review Arabic present tense conjugation parts. To help them see the different parts that make up present tense for each subject pronoun.
Laminate the sheets and store in a sealed bag and re-use as needed. I’m going to make this a pair activity so I will only need half the number I would’ve needed.
I hope you find this helpful insha Allah!

Here is a neat activity to use as a starter or to finish off the lesson. It’s a game to be played in pairs. I am going to laminate it so the ones they have completed can be crosses off using a dry erase board marker and the sheet will still be usable with other classes.
I can’t wait for my classes to play this game 🙂 Hope they have fun as much as I have enjoyed making this activity!
