Five Pillars: Match-Up & Gap-Fill Activity

  1. Cut out each pillar, cut out each strip with dashes & cut out individual letters.
  2. Children place letters on the gaps to spell each pillar and match the word to the picture of the pillar.

Fun Variations: Laminate each piece, fasten small magnets or blu-tak to materials and have children complete the activity on a wall, fridge or using a makeshift fishing rod with a magnet on the end of the line!

You could stick each pillar & its strip with dashes in different places around the room and have children race to stick letters up.

About the Author:

Currently a mumpreneur writing and publishing in between trying to nurture two Precious Bees: Rayyan & Ridhwan. I had a career in psychiatry & psychology for many years before heading to Saudi Arabia where I wrote a novel (yet to edit and publish), ran a small food business alongside a fashion business, and had the opportunity to work in a school and teach at a university. Five years later my husband and I headed back to the UK and started our precious family. Creative writing has been a passion since childhood, but it wasn't until having a child of my own that writing Islamic children's books became a mission!
