Come Follow Me "Be Ye Reconciled to God" Sept 9-15
Updated: Sep 15, 2019
Here is a recycled activity from July, but I added a boy and and changed the scripture, because it is very perfect with what the lesson is asking for.
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 141 " Ask the children what comforts them when they are sad or afraid. Read 2 Corinthians 1:3-4."
The children draw or write on the blanket a time when they felt comfort from Heavenly Father, cut it out and weave it through the paper, to keep the paper child warm and comforted.
Here is another comfort activity, the Primary book says "Bandaid" and I get excited(:
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 141
"Bring objects to class that provide comfort, such as a blanket or bandage. Ask the children what comforts them when they are sad or afraid or have other problems. Read 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 with the children, and explain what "tribulation" is another word for difficult problems.
Come Follow me- For Primary page 141 "Show pictures of people being baptized, while you read 2 Corinthians 1:4 and Mosiah 18:8-9 to the children. Explain that at Baptism we promise to comfort others.
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 141 "Invite the children to draw a picture of themselves helping someone in need. Let them explain how doing these things can bring comfort to others."
When I was making the puzzle something seemed very familiar about it. And I went back and looked through my old files and found a handout that I made. It's always good to recycle. (:
In the Senior Primary section of the manual it says :
"Invite the children to share ways in which we can comfort others. Give them time to think of someone they know who needs comfort and make a plan to reach out to that person."
I love this and want to do this with my family, but I can already tell you what they are going to say..."Let's make them cookies and go visit them."
So I made a cookie label. I left some space at the bottom for you to sign it, and write a message. It does have a bit of my sense of humor, I hope you like it (:
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 142 " Explain to the children that Paul wanted the Corinthians Saints to forgive a man who had sinned. Read 2 Corinthians 2:7-8, 10,....Invite the children to role play how they would respond in situations when someone has done something unkind. Let them take turns saying "I'm Sorry" and "I forgive you."
Here is a fun activity for those littles, where they can get lots of practice saying "I'm Sorry" or "I Forgive You."
Have the arrow point at a picture and ask the children what they think is happening. Then ask them how they can fix the problem.
When the children say "I'm Sorry" or "I Forgive you", turn the pointer to the words, which makes the face happy.
Forgiveness makes us happy!
I know this is a lot of colored ink. You are welcome to print in black and white and color it.
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 142 "Help the children memorize the phrase "We believe in being Honest" AoF 1:13. Write this phrase on paper bracelets the children can decorate and wear home. Explain that being honest means telling the truth.
Well, I've got to be honest with you..hehe(:
I made the first ones all cutesy, and then realized there wasn't much the kids could do to decorate them, so I made the second ones very plain, not colored. So you can decide which one you like better.
I made this small for little wrists, if you can bigger wrists, you just have to leave the ends.
So I make these things, but I don't have the vision of all the possibilities. Today at church I learned some things(: I didn't think of the comfort cookies being a handout for a class, and the bandaid activity as a cute handout with a bandaid. I know I'm kind of admitting that I'm not that smart.
This was a surprise to me also:
That it interchanges for a boy or a girl...ya..I'm sure all of you figured that out...except the person that made it! I would love to anymore of your ideas. Pleases share!
Here is an idea from Mitzi at https://emiscrafty.com/2018/12/10/come-follow-me-2019-lesson-plans/
2 Corinthians 7:8-11
Put a picture of Heavenly Father and Jesus on one side of the room. Put a picture of the world/sin on the other side of the room. Have the kids stand in the middle of the room while holding the steering wheel. Let them pretend to drive an imaginary car. Have them listen to scenarios while ”driving” their cars and act out which direction their cars would be facing. For example: you lied to your Mom about eating your vegetables. Which direction are you facing? Have them point point their cars toward the sin sign. If you feel “godly sorrow” for doing this, what will you do? Keep lying about it or change the direction to repent? Now have them turn their steering wheels to point to Heavenly Father and Jesus.

Here is a Talk from Erza T. Benson about Godly Sorrow:
I made an activity for older children to teach "Godly Sorrow."
Cut on the dotted line and cut the bricks and flower out. As you talk about Worldly sorrow, glue the bricks over the top of the dying flower, show that it “worketh death”. The other flower talk about Godly sorrow and help the flower grow as you read the leaves. May want to point out that godly sorrow brings it closer to the “sun.”
Here is a printable from that talk:
Here is the video that they encourage us to watch about faith:
Super neat story! I may have cried a little.

Keep checking back, my primary teacher friends often give me ideas, that I post later.
This week is amazing! So many teaching opportunities. Bless you in the study of the gospel!
Estoy realmente preocupado por la traducción de esta actividad. Si no está bien, ¿alguien me lo hará saber?
