Elder Shayne M. Bowen's article "Agency and Accountability"
Mitzi from https://emiscrafty.com/2018/12/10/come-follow-me-2019-lesson-plans/ noticed that this is actually a very good story for teaching children. So it isn't in the Come Follow Me- for Primary, but is church approved.
Here is the story:
There is a story told of an old Cherokee teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight, and it is between two wolves. One is evil: he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”
He continued, “The other is good: he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you—and inside every other person too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
Here are the printable's:
You'll have to assemble them before, with a bag attached to the back of the wolf. The children can lift up the snouts to feed the wolves.
Here is the wolf food:
The Wolf food, and this idea was all Mitzi, https://emiscrafty.com/2018/12/10/come-follow-me-2019-lesson-plans/
I just designed the wolves. I'm thinking we make a good team (: Don't you love how even with the wolf food, she still has a focus on the scriptures?
Here is a focus scripture:
kids can color it, cut it out, put it in the right order and make a chain.
Come Follow Me -For Primary page 125 “ Take the children outside to feel the sunshine, or show a picture of the sun. How is the sun like Heavenly Father’s love? Help them see that although the sun is far away, it can help us feel warm. We can feel Heavenly Father’s love all the time, even though he is not physically with us.”
The Lesson encourages singing together "I know My Heavenly Loves Me" CSB 228-229. Here a flip song Activity...what do I call it?(:
I was contacted by someone, they asked me to make printable's for the 2nd verses also, there primary already knows the first verse of most songs. Makes sense. I don't know if I will do it every time, but it works out well for this song.
Come follow Me-For primary pg 126 section: Faith Comes by Hearing the Word of God.
Come Follow Me-For Primary page 126 "Invite the children to share something nice that someone did for him or her recently. Help the children make thank you cards for those people."
Here are some Thank you post cards if you are looking for something more simple. I made them so young kids can draw in the empty space, our older kids can write.
This is an old visiting teaching message about being "heirs" to Heavenly Father.
https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/liahona/1989/09/the-worth-of-souls-is-great?lang=eng this is where I got reference of the 1st coloring page.
Here is a couple of coloring pages that fit with the Child of god/Heir section of the lesson.
Come follow Me- for Primary "Label several glasses of water with things where we find the word of God (like the scriptures, church meetings, and general conference). Discuss how the word of God increases our faith as you pour each glass into a container labeled "Faith."
I absolutely love this object lesson, and would recommend doing it, water is very good sensory. You can use this as labels for the activity. This comes in black and white for a coloring page, as a handout or for a support packet to send home the week before the lesson.
This is a recycled activity. For those that didn't get to use it last time, have a second chance. Assemble it before and hold up the beautiful apple crisp looking apple and the not so nice looking apple. Get the children's feedback of which one they would rather eat. Then have the kids open the apples. Talk about Roman 14:10,13 "Let us not...judge one another."
April Dawn Harker sent me this picture from last week.
She says that she plans daily lessons like this for her 20 month old son. Super neat! I'm not going to lie, I love that she used my material, but even more amazing is that she is teaching her young son CFM. A strong foundation is being built for the rest of his life. Love to see things like this!
My printable's may not be the way for your family, and are lots of options out there. Teachye.com has some free lesson plans for those raising young families. and Mitzi from https://emiscrafty.com/2018/12/10/come-follow-me-2019-lesson-plans/ also has a lot of good ideas.
Enjoy your study of Come Follow Me.
