May 13-19 "What Lack I Yet?"
Updated: May 22, 2019
The Primary Manual suggests a focus on the Proclamation to the Family, I love this! So I've taken clips from the Proclamation and put them in my activities.
I've got a fun game here... Matching the Apostles pictures, when they were married to there pictures now. I think even my teenagers will have fun with this.
I tried to think of some object lesson that would show kids that families can be "sealed" together forever, and because of Jesus Christ, we will be together after death. A family paper chain, or with more kids, you can connect the circle.
I love designing and printing, but when it comes to getting my kids moving, I like to look at these websites:
https://emiscrafty.com/2018/12/10/come-follow-me-2019-lesson-plans/ She actually has a accordin print out of the Proclamation, that she got from the Friend Magazine. Super cute.
Teachye.com has some really fun quick ideas, it's nice when I only have a couple of minutes to teach CFM, I can look at what she is doing with her kids.
savingtalents.com has some great devotionals for kids and adults.
Thecozyredcottage.com she focuses a lot on helping primary teachers with their lessons and has a lot of cute printables.
My Mother-in-law is a very talented Primary teacher. We went out to dinner tonight and she told me this idea that she had for her class. She is going to hand out these mini puzzles cut up and bagged. She will tell her class that the person who puts the puzzle together the fastest gets one "treat"...and holds up the treat. But, waiting for everyone to finish they all get the same treat. I loved the idea! But, this is a very late entry, so you are blessed if you procrastinated (:
Unfortunately the file is too big to get it on my website. I'm going to cry. But, it's a great idea all the same.
Here is a cute little book about the parable of the Labours in the Vineyard. There are directions or a youtube video you can watch.
If you are a Primary teacher, it might be nice to have a book for every member of your class to read together.
I love the Conference talk in May 2017 "Jesus Beholding Him Loved Him. https://www.lds.org/media-library/video/2017-04-5030-s-mark-palmer?lang=eng
That is what I wanted to focus this color by numbers on. If it works for your family, you can put it on your family tv and hand this out for the little ones to color while they listen.
If you are really wanting to change, or make goals it is always good to write them down. Here is a fun way to do that. My kids have a 99 cent notebook that has their names on them, that we use for CFM we just tape this to one of the pages. Then no one but them has to know what it says.
This one is a tricky activity, you decide if it is right for your family. Really small children don't understand symbolism easily. Bible scholars, say that there is a very narrow small entrance into the city that is called "the eye of the needle". In order to get a camel inside, they have to take off their "load" and get on their knees (prayer) and very slowly move along the "tunnel like" entrance. With the master helping guide the camel. It is neat that whenever Christ says something.. there is a lot of different meanings. However, I think the focus is on that "with men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible." The Atonement is the way.
In this activity you cut out the slit in the entrance and fold the camel to fit in like mailing an envelope.
Update: I wish "Don't Miss This" could do their showing, when I'm making my packets two weeks early. So I guess in hebrew meaning in the Bible, it really was an actual "Eye of a Needle" that you really thread. Some interpret it like this, but it's not right. I apologize, if the week wasn't already over, I would make a new one.
Remember that you are called and set apart as teachers (even parents) to your children. Go by the spirit and do what you feel is best.
Here is a personalized coloring page. The first on is for a boy, the second one for a girl. This can be a primary help.
We are going back in time with these next printables. I think everyone in my era remembers the Family Mask that we would get to use whenever they sang "Happy Family" in primary. Well, now you can do it with your kids. But, you can also use them as you read the proclamation to the family.
Have you ever played "kiss the frog"? It is where each member of the family family gets a turn to sit in the middle of the room, and everyone says something they love about them. It is so fun! I think the last time we played it some of us even cried...ok Mom cried! I plan on doing that again, it was so neat.
I hope this gives ideas and help for your families in the Study of the Gospel. God bless you and good luck!
