I thought this could be a fun way to keep up with our numbers and reading for the summer. We made some bookmarks. Either print on card or paper and laminate.

Today we are learning about our Natural Environment’s resources. We need to learn this explanation from our Grade 3 Science textbook about what is natural environment resources.
الهواء والماء والتربة والصخور والمعادن والنفط من موارد البيئة الطبيعية المهمة لحياة الانسانز
which means: Air, water, soil, rocks, minerals and oil from resources of the natural environment are important to human life.
We have made a set of learning cards you can download here: natural resources cards
You can print out a set of cards to laminate and cut them up to play matching games – and if like me you (the teacher) needs a little help I have numbered the English explanation card to match the Arabic card so we do not need to get confused.
We also made a spelling game dice. Throw the die read the word and try to write it down. We used the dice from http://www.printableboardgames.net

I would love to see pictures of you die and cards and ideas you came up with for using them. Please add to comments. ❤
Today’s task in Grade 3 Science:
Talking about plants: First to translate our summary!

Plants make their own food through photosynthesis, with sunlight, air and water.
البناء الضوئي – photosynthesis

I stopped mid stride – I could buy pencils✏🖍🖌🖊(قلم – qalam) no problem… but we are in the Middle East…. No one knows what a “pencil sharpener” is!
What do you call a pencil sharpener in Arabic? Do you know?
The dictionary only wanted to tell me what a pencil is called. We knew that already. Oh dear! *sigh*
Even my husband looked at me blankly, when he returned from work, when
….and then he was gone to play with the kids…. and I still did not know what a “Pencil Sharpener” was called…
My initial online search for “ruler” brought up “king, emporer”… Google Translate was not in a confidence boosting mood either… 🤔
Then… just when I was ready to concede defeat…. I am so excited to say! I found these sheets! I just had to share this with everyone!! After much searching I finally found, at ArabicWorksheets’s page on Pinterest, an ArabicWorksheet:
Very timely! We also discovered some extra academic language we urgently needed to know too… but for now the correct names for the school/office supplies (أدوات مكتبية) we needed to buy.
The list of words/flashcards:
We printed 3 copies. One each. First we did our word searches.
Then we cut out two card sets, so we could laminate the cards to use for a “Learn the Stationery Word” “Fish” card game.
First we needed to work out the words and their pronunciation.
Goodness gracious! Not the swimming kind! The card kind!!! 🙄
Obviously I am going to need tea for this! ⛾
We mixed up our cards, each person got 4 to start, the rest went into the middle to the “fish” pile.
Then we checked our cards and the person going first asks:
** Do you have “mubra” (مبراة)?
– follow by the other person’s blank expression (usually mine) they said “Pencil sharpener”
** yes – the other person hands over the card. The person records a pair and takes another turn.
** No! Go Fish! – the person asking for a card picks up a card from the centre to try and make a pair, the next person takes a turn.
Now… to learn the words for this game properly.
How do you say “Go Fish!” In Arabic?
