Juzz `Amma Folding Craft Activity

Bismillah,

One fun way of teaching the Surah order of Juzz `Amma is to create this Accordion folding stick craft activity – what a mouthful! ūüôā I came across this activity as a Butterfly activity and it has many versions such as the Father’s Day one. Here is the link to the¬† Bible craft version on Danielle’s Place of Crafts and Activities as it has excellent pictures that explain how to make it.

There are two ways of making this activity: If you want to hang it, you can attach a ribbon to the top into a loophole or leave the ribbon and use it to tie it together. Also, the Surah order can be either from Surah Naba to Surah al-Nas or the other way around.

Version 1:

Version 2:

final version

What you will need:

  1. Jumbo Craft sticks:  For my class I needed 10 for each student so I had to buy them in bulk from Amazon.
  2. The Juzz `Amma surah list pdf
  3. Coloured card strips
  4. Ribbon

For copyright reasons, I don’t think I can include even the instructions – so If you want to make this Accordion folding please head over to the Danielle’s place of Craft and Activities site.

For my class: I have cut the card into strips that fit into the jumbo size I need. If you want to avoid cutting strips because it is a time consuming thing, you can buy colored jumbo lollipop sticks. I have added stickers to jazz it up as well!

Hope you enjoy creating this activity with your class!

Bismillah,

Similiar to the other keyword assesment sheets I’ve created, my year 9 class will also be assessed using a crossword. The keywords will then be reviewed using flashcards for that particular surah.

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.

Weekly test data

I plan to begin each lesson with a quick 10 minute test based on a concept learnt or reviewed in the previous lesson. My classes are going to be intense but fun (hopefully) insha Allah! Arabic is a language and in order to learn the grammar and vocabularly of a new language, one must review constantly. That is what I will try to build in to my teaching practise iA. Additionally, rather than giving an end of term test/ end of year test only, the student’s final grade will be based on year round performance iA.

To help the students chart their progress I have created this form for them to fill out each week. The link for the pdf: assessment-chart-students.pdf

Ice breaker activity

 Bismillah,

So I’ve been looking around for ways to start my first lesson of the academic year, and I thought it might be a good idea to start with something fun before we discuss classroom rules, and set my expectations for the year. That is the kind of atmosphere I want in my classes – between fun and serious. Inshallah kheir.

I created this ice breaker sheet for this purpose. It’s simple – each student takes a skittle out of the bag and¬† answers¬†the question that corresponds to that¬†skittle flavour. A starburst version is here:
