Early Years Arabic: The Bingo Bismillah game

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 ūüôā

Arabic grammar worksheet

Bismillah,

So far the grammar I have taught or reviewed depending on the class and what they have been taught before is as follow:

  • The definite article
  • Detached pronouns
  • Attached pronouns
  • Demonstratives

I created the following Arabic grammar worksheet¬†as an exercise to help review all these concepts.¬†The lyrics are from an Islamic Arabic nasheed for children and they repeat over and over¬†again. I¬†want them to see that¬†Qur’anic Arabic and the grammar I am teaching can be used to read¬†short¬†Arabic stories¬†or understand¬†songs which¬†is more relevant at their age/stage.

So here is the nasheed:

And here is the activity that accompanies it:

hiba2-page-001

Once the students have completed the exercise, it will be a fun activity to see if they can translate the sentences using previous knowledge and some help from me. Exposing them to Arabic texts at such an early stage is beneficial for them in my opinion.

At the end of this exercise, I’ll get the class to listen to the nasheed and repeat the words.

Juz `Amma `Ilm to `Amal Series

Bismillah,

I was inspired by 1st Ethical’s commitment to making Islam practical and practised by young Muslims. So in that vain, I added a section in the Arabic studies workbooks where we as a class brainstorm ways in which to use the Surah in our lives to become better believers.

The task is for them to do one activity per surah and present it to the class. It can be a craft activity, reflection, poster, a poem and the list goes on….

Here are the activity sheets I made, selected some students to complete them and present to the class:

Surah at-Takweer

Surah al-Ghashiyah

More will be added as they are made.

Surah al-Bayyinah Dominoes game

Juzz Amma Dominoes Game Series

Bismillah,

We’re all familiar with dominoes so I thought why not use them to create a keyword review game. These will be printed on good quality thick paper and then laminated – the school will appreciate the extra work so we don’t have to make them annually!

So this game is for the¬†dominoe game Surah al Bayyinah to help review the vocabulary in a fun way. I’ll store them in a clear plastic sealable bag.

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:

folding2folding1

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!

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.
