"A Minister and a Witness" July 29-Aug 4th
Updated: Jul 27, 2019
This week is more exciting than a soap opera! Snake bites and shipwrecks, it's every kids dream come true.
There are a lot to these stories, and it is even hard for me to follow along. These movies helped:
Here is one put out by the church:
They didn't talk about the ship wreck or the snake bite, so I found some more movies that do:
This one goes into more details about the shipwreck:
This one briefly talks about the shipwreck, but it also talks about the snake bite.
But those movies aren't church approved ): so for those primary teachers that want to tell a story and keep the kids interested, or for Parents who like to review what they learned, here are a couple of activities:
This tells the whole story:
Just be sure to only cut on the dotted lines, then weave the paper through the ship.
Here it is in Black and white:
Questions to review the story:
Come Follow Me- For Primary pg. 117
Display pictures of a jail cell, a boat, and a snake. Invite the children to share any stories they know about Paul that have to do with these pictures.
The Primary Manuel suggests watching the show "Be of Good Cheer" https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/bible-videos/videos/be-of-good-cheer?lang=eng
I like how this scripture shows that it's Jesus himself that comforted Paul. It's neat to see that comfort can come from our Savior straight to us. Come Follow Me-For Primary pg. 117 says "Ask the children to share times when they felt comforted by God." In the activity, the children write or draw those experiences on the blanket, then weave it through the paper to keep the child warm and comfortable.
Here is a crown for King Agrippa.
King Agrippa Mask for acting out the story:
If you want a Paul acting mask, here is one from last week:
Here is another great idea for Mitzi at https://emiscrafty.com/2018/12/10/come-follow-me-2019-lesson-plans/. She thought it would be cute to cut the face out (after coloring) and have the kids practice saying things that they would say in a testimony. She really has some cute ideas, if you haven't visited her website, you really should.
I think it would also be cute to let the kids add their own faces with buttons or wiggle eyes.
The Primary Manuel says: "Cut a piece of paper like a ship into puzzle pieces. Invite the children to write Paul's warnings in Acts 27:9-11 on the pieces and put the puzzle together."
I have the original, so that you can just cut up the picture into more or less pieces if want. And then one with a puzzle template.
Here is an Awesome Movie that the church has asked us to watch:
We are to ask "How are the prophets like the man with binoculars?"
Here is President Nelson's last address:
I've tried to pick out the "Warning" statements and made Prophet Warning labels. Doing this made me realize how much I loved listening to our prophet this last April.
For The Junior Primary it says:
“Place several pictures or objects around the room that represent things prophets have taught us to do...As a class, walk around the room, stopping at each picture or object to talk about how following the prophets teachings helps to keep us safe.”
That is all Friends. Hope you enjoy your study of Come Follow Me this week.
