"What Wilt Thou Have Me Do?" July 8-14
Updated: Jul 5, 2019
I was thinking about the parents at home with small kids that love music. It can be so powerful for young and old. This is the song the primary is teaching this month, it would be great to make it apart of the lesson. Here is a fun way to do that.
You can hide the little pictures around the room, and sing the song a couple of times.
Here is the movie from the church about Stephen:
Here is a game you can play with your kids to help review the movie, and go over right and wrong scenarios.
If you think your kids are too little to review the story of Stephen, then this dice would be more what you are looking for.
A lot of parents ask how to get the book of Mormon study in. Stephen gave his life for his testimony, very similar to Abinadi in Mosiah Chapter 11. I heard a talk in my youth about studying the book of Mormon by topic instead of just reading through it. That would be a perfect way to study the Book of Mormon, while still studying CFM.
The focus scripture is one of my favorites. What a perfect example Stephen was of "Standing as a witness of Christ"...even unto death. You can print these off in sets of 4, read them together as a class/family, and keep it in the scriptures or study guide.
Also, if you want to do it as a puzzle, you are assemble it as you talk about Stephen together, and read it all together at the end.
Notice, I'm giving lots of options, you pick what is right for you.
Here is a really good idea for a FHE lesson, but can be used for Primary, because it is a church resource:
Here are some videos about Philip and the Ethiopian
This one has the cute voice of a child telling the story:
This is a great lesson plan for teaching the story of Stephen:
The Primary Manuel suggest setting chairs up like a chariot. And possibly acting out the story. If you enjoy doing that, here is a mask of the Ethiopian.
And here is a mask of Philip:
I'd love to hear feed back on the masks, someone did tell me that their younger kids don't "get it." So I made other activities for smaller children. Remember these come in black and white, so your kids can color while you tell the story. Or if you are teaching and you just what your kids to spin the wheels while you tell the story, thats great too.
It's a story in motion.
If you can't think of a personal experience you have had of sharing the gospel with someone, the Friend has a lot.
This is a story about Elder Eyring's ancestor, there is an fill in the blank activity at the bottom for a senior primary, age, child.
Here is a true story about a boy named Jared, who shares the gospel with his friend:
One more, comparing the sharing of the gospel with eating fruit.
Here is the movie from the churches library about Saul/Paul:
Here is a mini book you can make with your younger kids, with the story of Saul/Paul.
Here is one for the older kids.
Here is a match-up worksheet, for younger kids. It also come in B&W for those kids that like to color.
Here are some pictures from the internet, if you want to go into more about the changes God makes in nature:
Come Follow Me- for Primary page 106
“Invite the children to name places they would like to visit, and write them at the top of the road. What would Happen if we turned onto the wrong road? How is Repentance like getting back on the right road?
So I thought it would be fun to blindfold each of my kids, give them a different color of marker (for each of them) and see who can stay on the path. Then teach them about Repentance.
This turned out to be a super cute activity.
With the help of listening to their siblings, they eventually got back on the path at the end. That was a neat lesson, that I never suspected.
Here is the video the church has put together on Simon receiving the Priesthood:
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 107
Give the children pretend money, and display pictures of things that can be bought with money. Ask the children how much of their pretend money they would give for these things. Then show pictures of the sacrament, a temple (representing temple blessings), a baptism, and other blessings we receive through the priesthood. Explain that these gifts from God are priceless and cannot be bought with money.
Here is some free money...don't ever say I never gave you anything(:
Whew! Another week is over.
Lesson Plans are not my strength, but it sure is for these cute ladies:
I hope you are enjoying your summer! Structure has been hard for us, as I'm sure for many of you, hang in there and make time for CFM. We will be blessed for our efforts, even though we might feel like no one is listening. God bless you!
Para niños más pequeños.
Esto resultó ser una actividad súper linda.
Con la ayuda de escuchar a sus hermanos, finalmente volvieron al camino al final. Esa fue una buena lección, que nunca sospeché.
