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:

Surah Lapbooks

Bismillah,

Lapbooks are a great way of reviewing newly learnt material. One of the activities I’ve prepared for the students is a secret agent lapbook letter. It contains the names of the 3 Surahs I need them to make a lapbook on, where they can find the templates and ideas from. I think it’s a fun way of giving a task which needs to be completed after several weeks.

The Lapbook 101 site is really helpful and has lots of printables and videos.

Here is the pdf of the lapbook letter (yr 8).

I figured out a way of printing on envelopes using my home printer and the top secret stamp on the envelopes may it appealing to teenagers.

Hope you enjoy creating this activity for your students. I will upload pics of Lapbooks that my student come up with.

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:
