Quraan Centre Word Work: Surah Al-Masad Activities & Workbook

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Alhamdulillaah, this is this Quraan centre word work for surah Al-Masad:

In the word work for this centre, along with the shadow matching of words and the workbook, students embark on early map reading skills with another word hunt! This time, using a simple map, students explore the room looking for certain words from the surah. They are helped by pictures representing centres in the classroom (I've tried to pick centres that can also be places in the home). Students also enjoy a game of completing their ayah before their classmate. Each student gets a game board and the cards are placed face down (shuffled) between the two students. Students take turns picking a card. They must read the card accurately and if they need that card on their board they keep it and put it in its correct place. If they need the card but read it incorrectly after three tries or they cannot read it, they return the card to the bottom of the pile and the next player takes his/her turn. If they do not need the card they simply return it to the bottom of the stack. The game ends when a player accurately complete his/her board.

Students also work with the word building cards mentioned in this post. The teacher/parent-teacher cuts the cards in half, shuffles them and the students work to accurately match the cards to spell some of the words from the surah. Again, Control of Error is built into this particular exercise in the following way: when cut in half, the cards can only be reassembled with their correct match. If the student mismatches two of the cards, the rectangle they form will not be symmetrical/even. It will be either too long or too short. This helps students reconsider the two cards they have placed together and try again insha'Allaah.

Students have an opportunity to work on their handwriting with a tracing worksheet. In another worksheet, they match the words in the right column to the correct word in the left hand column. This worksheet is familiar as students have worked with this in previous suwar word work.  There is the word wheel for this surah and students also have the surah written in large print for independent reading. For this activity (the surah in large print), students use their pointers - made from Popsicle sticks with a small/medium decoration at the tip - to read the surah. Using their Popsicle stick pointer, students point to each word as they read it.

Pointers for independent reading or "Read The Room" activities

There are also selected words from the surah in large red print. These can be placed in your classroom pocket chart in the Quraan centre or used in other activities insha'Allaah.



Enjoy insha'Allaah!

    Sis Sophie,

    At this time it would not be possible to do that due to time constraints. This may be something that may be possible during the summer break insha'Allaah.

    Also, just to clarify. Do you mean each surah on a page and space underneath to write down the translation and grammar?
