April 22-28 "What Shall We Do to Inherit Eternal Life?"
Updated: Apr 23, 2019
Welcome back, I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
The first activity is a color by number. I have two of these, because I made the box with the colors in them, thinking it will be so much easier this way, when I change it to Spanish. Then I realized our Primary prints off a bunch of these for our Primary children, and the church copy machine, doesn't print color. So print the one that best fits your needs.
Here is the "In the Scriptures" Activity. These older primary kids are too smart! It's a good time for them to become more familiar with finding scriptures and connecting with them. So every week, I have an "In the Scriptures" activity. I think my 7 year old can do this one, it's not too complicated.
I wanted to create a fun way to tell the story of "The Good Samaritan" over and over again. I created a colored version, because the pictures are too small to color, and a black and white version for those that use the church's copier.
I printed one off, and it isn't the easiest to flip and read, but my littlest loves her little book, and has me read it often to her.
This is a link to a "Who's your neighbor" game in the Friend Magazine.
This is my favorite activity of this week. Even Preschool age children know how to graph, that was how I taught Math in Head Start....back in my teaching days. They just color in the box when they do the activity. I did have a box with a little girl hitting a boy, but I erased that....because fighting only happen's in my family (ha,ha, I am funny). But, I did decided to keep it as general as possible. The girl emptying the garbage can be service or completing a chore, that is up to you. I'll share pictures as we go, so the world can know how unbalanced my kids are....and so you can get an idea how it works.
Some kids don't like to color! (Gasp!) Here is a colored version.
This story is a hard one for kids to understand. I really like to find church approved art, but the church has nothing about the "unforgiving servant" that I can find...as far as art, or kids. Since it is hard to understand, I made puppets, to help my kids. You are welcome to them.
Tell the story/ read the scripture while they are coloring and then the kids can put the puppet show on for the family.
A story from the Friend about Repentance and Forgiveness.
This is a story from Pres. Hinkley about forgiveness and a piece of string.
I found a Fabulous website for lesson plans:
If that doesn't work type teachye.com . I love that Talia has a little object lesson everyday. She also focuses on church approved material.
Colorea los títeres juntos, mientras lees las Escrituras a los niños. Luego haga que los niños pongan el espectáculo de marionetas para la familia.
