These are sorting mats that can be used to help children sort (classify) what Allah has Created (there are no black borders around the mats in the file). Laminate the mats (optional), place a stack of picture cards in a basket and place the basket with the mat on a tray. Invite the child to sort the cards based on their attributes. This is also an easy math centre activity that can also be done in pairs or small groups insha'Allah.
This is just a variation of the mat above (using circles to sort):
If I remember correctly insha'Allah, sis Umm Maimoonah is going to use pictures from magazines to teach sorting different things in Allah's Creation based on the following attributes: People, Places and Things. You can see her curriculum plan here insha'Allah.
More to come insha'Allah.....oh! Maybe I should have made some cards to go with them?
