"Allah Created...." Pre-School Sorting Mats

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

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?

Enjoy insha'Allah!


  1. As salaamu alaykum,

    Ma sha Allah, neat idea. This could also be used for lower elementary kids as well when they are learning about nouns, great way to weave in Islam in that study.

  2. Waalaikum salam wa rahmatullah,

    Sis Talibiddeen Jr., yes! masha'Allah, very true. Jazakillahu Khayr.

    Sis Umm Maimoonah, wa iyaki. Oh, do you want me to make cards for the mats sis?

  3. Hmm, if you have the time Insha Allaah! But do not burden yourself! : )

  4. If I can do it dear sis, it will be with pleasure for the sake of Allah *smile*.

  5. Assalaamu Alaikum sis,

    The link for English sorting mat is opening up with the Arabic sis. Insha Allaah just check it out.

  6. Waalaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

    Jazakillahu khary dear sis! I relinked the file - it should be english now insha'Allah *smile*.

  7. MashaAllah my son loved this activity
