Definite article review

Bismillah,

Now that it has been agreed that there will be no use of social media symbols in the textbooks, I am free to publish activities which were included in the books. Apart from that I cannot publish other activities I have included in the books as I signed away the copyright. We aim to make the books available in the UK market in 2016 bi’ithnillah. I’m so excited for that moment as Muslim schools across London are waiting for Al Barakah school to sell such a product. I am deeply grateful to Allah for choosing me to work on it. Ya rabb keep my niyyah pure and accept this from me. Ameen.

It was interesting to see that the older girls didn’t bat an eyelid when they first saw such activities in the books. It was only the 12 year olds (year 8) who were surprised by it. It would be interesting to see what causes that change and in such a short space of time.

The following activities may not be to everyone’s taste/beliefs but teachers up and down the country use such materials in schools so I thought why not for Qur’anic Arabic.

They can choose one from the following:

Bismillah,

Bingo Game

Laminate the sheets with letters (start with sheets with foll form and then work your way to the broken letters and end up with joint letters). The teacher calls out a letter and they find it and circle it on their sheets using whiteboard pens which can then be wiped and reused. At the end the class shouts out “Bingo Bismillah” together 🙂

Early years Arabic: Velcro Game

Bismillah,

Velcro Game

There are many different variations to how this game can be played. It is true that Alphabet board are easily available online – but they can be expensive when you are buying several for your classroom. So instead why not make your own and use it in multiple ways.

alphabets

This is a bit like a jigsaw puzzle, the children have to arrange the letters in order. Once done you can ask them to point out the heavy letters or the naughty letters etc. Or you can go round the children asking them to name the letter, they get to hold on to it if they get it right and the one with the most letters at the end is the winner.

Early years Arabic: Blindfold alphabet game

Bsimillah,

A game idea to teach Arabic alphabet recognition to the younger children.

feel letter

The children love playing this game. They wear a blindfold (or close their eyes) and guess the letter shape by feeling it. If you use textured (glittery) foam cut out into the letter shape and stuck onto smooth foam, it works really well and really makes the children think about the shape and where the dots are placed.
