To give students a bit of variety,word work centres have some variation. The activities for Surah al-Falaq, while slightly different from past Quraan word work centres, are those that students have worked with in the past or are familiar with.
The word work for this surah includes:
* A word hunt: students are given a clipboard, a glue stick, and the clipboard worksheet pictured. The words on the clipboard are hidden around the Quraan centre, classroom or home and during their time at the centre, students quietly search the room for the words. As they find each word, they take the word card from the spot they found it and glue it in the right place on the worksheet. For older students, you can tape the word cards around the room and students can take the words as they find them and tape them to the worksheet in the correct spot.
In the file, you will find the words for the word hunt in large red print and also on smaller cards in black ink. The smaller cards are for the word hunt. You will make more than one copy so you can hide each word 3 (or more) times so that each student has the chance to complete their worksheet insha'Allaah. There are also two different clipboard worksheets, each with different words for students to find. When done, students write their name on their worksheet and place it in the basket for completed work. The large red word cards can be used as flashcards or for other games/activities.
* A word race: The word wheel above on the right with the orange centre is a word race. There are two (or more) copies of this wheel at the Quraan centre (depending on how large your groups are for centre work). The words on the wheel are on clothes pins like in this post. Make sure there are enough clothes pin words so that each student can complete the word wheel. To play, each student/child takes a word wheel and a set of words on clothes pins and places them on their right. Students race to see who can complete the word wheel first. You can also make this an individual activity by having students race themselves using an egg timer (pictured on the right).
* Sorting exercise: Students/children take a mat. There are word cards in the file so that the parent/teacher can decide which words they wish the students to sort. The parent/teacher puts the two words in the two boxes above the circles. Parent/teacher then gives the child the circular words cards (mixed up) and invites the child to sort them by putting the words in the correct circle (as shown above). The file also contains blank circle word cards and blank square word cards, allowing teachers/parents to add words from the surah that may not be in the file.
* Shadow matching words: you can see an example of how this activity is done here.
* Matching words: students draw a line to match the words on the worksheet
* And the workbook: The workbook is slightly different for this surah. Instead of students seeing a single word from the ayaat in a blue box at the bottom of the page, students see two words. They also have one word in each ayah that is written in green. Students read the ayah, paying attention to the green word, and then from the two words on the bottom, they circle the word that is the same as the word written in green in the ayah. Example pictured above.
