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.

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.

Arabic Present Tense jigsaw set

Bismillah,

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.

Here is the pdf of the Arabic Present Tense jigsaw

Arabic verb roots activity

Bismillah,

The latest grammar rule I introduced to the Year 8s was the Arabic verb root system. Telling them that if they learnt this correctly, they would know 50% of Arabic seemed to do the trick. For me to have even gotten their attention after teaching them 6 grammar rules already was a massive deal. But Allah made things easy for me alhamdolillah!

I introduced the 3 Arabic verb roots as 3 roots of a tree. The fruit the tree has are the words that can be made out of the three roots. Obviously, it will take many more lessons to even get 50% of the class to grasp this weird and wonderful language concept.

Here is an activity I created to help the girls grasp an idea that we talked about related to the Arabic verb system: words are created using the three root letters and additional letters.
