Christmas, Dec 21-27, Come Follow Me 2020, Free LDS primary lesson helps
Updated: Dec 21, 2020
I'm starting out with the best today.
Mitzi from comefollowmekid.com asked me to draw/design some of her fun ideas for this weeks Christmas lesson. She is kind of a genius, and I'm grateful to be included in plans.
Hide these pictures around the room, when the children find the pictures, ask them if the picture has to do with the real reason we celebrate Christmas. Then attach the pictures to toilet paper rolls and act out the story, with the 3D stable.
If you don't have toilet paper rolls lying around, Mitzi has something you can use on her page.
I just rolled up little pieces of paper so they would stand, and my kids thought they were finger puppets, so that was a fun surprise(:
Come Follow Me- For Primary
Jesus Christ was born to be my Savior
"Tell about Jesus's birth, displaying pictures as you do...Let the children share what they know."
I have a couple sequence activities:
“Show pictures depicting the Savior’s atoning sacrifice- such as His suffering in Gethsemane....Ask the children to tell you what they see in the pictures. Help them understand that Heavenly Father sent Jesus Christ to earth to suffer for our sins, die for us, and be resurrected so that we can return to live with Him.”
Debbie Clifford reached out to let me know I miss spelled a word on this puzzle. I love this puzzle, and wanted to find an opportunity to share the correct version. I think this is a good time to do that.
Sing with the children a song about Jesus's birth, such as "He Sent His Son" ....Point out to the children phrases in the song that describe blessings we have because of Jesus's birth.
2 Nephi 25:23,26
The Book of Mormon testifies of Jesus Christ.
"Give each child a picture of Jesus, or let them draw their own pictures of Him. Invite them to hold up their own pictures each time they hear Christ's name as you read 2 Nephi 25:23,26. Testify that the Book of Mormon was written to help us "believe in Christ" (2 Nephi 25:23)."
Especially for Senior Primary:
"List on the board some events surrounding Jesus's birth, as decribed in Luke 2:4-14; Matthew 2:1-2; and 3 Nephi 1:15, 19-21. Help the children search these scriptures to determine whether the events happened in Bethlehem, the Americas or both. Why are we thankful to have the Book of Mormon as a second witness of Jesus Christ's birth and mission as the Savior?"
2 Nephi 25:23, 26; 33; 4, 10
The book of Mormon testifies of Jesus Christ.
Here is a recycled activity from the beginning of the year, but if you missed it, it is perfect for teaching about the Book of Mormon being another testament of Jesus Christ.
Also last years Christmas is right here, if that helps give you any ideas while planning your lesson.
