This week, we are going over how to search for and find things in Arabic. We’ll also learn the male and female words for colors!
You don’t need any experience to join. We all read together and go over the meanings of the words.
We have been using the Arabic books that are used here in Saudi schools. They are designed for native speakers, but they have some great resources that go along with them including listening activities and games.
Arabic Vocabulary and Speaking Practice
Today, we will talk about two Arabic phrases that we need when searching for things:
أَبْحَثُ عَنْ I am searching for...
وَجَدْتُ I found...
Watch the video to see how these phrases are used as we find some differences in two different pictures. Try using them around the house.
My kids are still learning to properly use colors with male and female words. So this week, I made a worksheet to help them. It will help with 3 skills, inshaa Allaah.
1) Writing: Trace the letters and sentences.
2) Grammar: Notice the difference between how colors are used with words when they have ة. Words that end with ة are usually female, so we have to use the female color word. (Sounds confusing, but it will be clear from the worksheet, inshaa Allaah.)
3) Speaking: Say each sentence out loud. Notice the patterns and try to swap out the words for other colorful things around your house.
Review colors while practicing reading, writing, and speaking.
Traceable pages for coloring and writing practice.
This printable is based on a video by T’alam m’a Zakariyyah on Youtube.
