Mitzi from ComeFollowMeKid.com asked me to make something that went along with this. Mitzi is a school teacher that makes free lesson plans, for come follow me, she does a fantastic job.
Come follow me- For Families "How would your family answer Ammon's questions in Alma 26:2? Perhaps you could make a list of their answers on a large piece of paper and hang it in a place where everyone can see it. Encourage family members to add to it as they think of other blessings God has "bestowed upon us."

Come Follow Me- For Primary page 101 "Read some verses or phrases from Alma 24:6-24 to teach the children about the Anti-Nephi-Lehies, the promise they made, and how they kept the promise.
"Describe how the Anti-Nehpi-Lehies kept their promise by burying their weapons. Invite the children to draw a sword and pretend to dig a hole and bury their sword. Help the children think of promises they make. Why is it important to keep promises?"
Here is a cute little envelop that you can bury your swords in, but you can pull them out to remember your promises.
To help review the promises you make at baptism and the promises God makes with us, here is the Baptism Meter:

The gospel brings me joy, and I can share this joy with others.
Ammon who helped to teach the gospel to the Anti-Nephi-Lehies, received great joy from preaching the gospel. Alma, who also taught the gospel to many people, received this same joy. We can experience similar joy when we share our testimonies with others.
I would love to see some cute self portraits. Please share.
Covenants are promises I make with God and He makes with me.
Hide these letters around the room. When a letter is found give one of the following hints about what the word (covenant), until you complete the word, or the kids guess what it is.
Or if you think your kids are too smart, you can have them find all the letters and give them hints as they try to unscramble the word.
Come follow Me- for Primary page 103 "Write Before and After on the board. ask some of the children to read the following verses to find out what the Lamanites were like before Ammon and his brothers taught them:Alma 17:14-15; 26:23-24. Ask the children to read the following verses to find out how they changed: Alma 26:31-34; 27:27-30. Invite the children to list...what they found. Then in Alma 24:7-10, discover how these Lamanites were able to change so completely. Bear your testimony of God's power to forgive us and help us repent and change."
That is all for this week. Hope you enjoy teaching!
