"Ye Shall Be Witnesses unto Me"- July 1-7
Updated: Jul 5, 2019
Another fun CFM week. Some of these stories I never heard of before. I'm so grateful for this program and all that I'm learning.
This idea came from Come Follow Me- For Primary, I just had fun dolling it up(:
Play a matching game with two sets of pictures of the Twelve Apostles. When a match is made, share the Apostles/Presidents name and something about him.
So ya gotta, print 2 copies, of each page..except the fun facts pages. Preferably on card stock so it isn't see-through.
So I'm not sure how to adapt fun facts to very small children. Also, I want to do this for FHE with my entire family. Luckily, I had to read through a lot of material to put this together. So I'll probably get out my notes and share lots of info about each of them for the benefit of my older children, and for my younger kids I'll just show them the pictures and tell them a basic fact.
Update: Everything is fixed...again(: If I messed up somehow in the fixing of the fixed, let me know.
The movie the church suggests watching: Chapter 55: The Apostles Lead the Church.
Here is and activity for younger kids.
Start by cutting out the picture of the prophet.
May want to add some protective tape to the picture of Jesus or get this page laminated.
Tape the picture of the Prophet over the pic of Jesus. This is how the kids will see it.
The kids will help teach the lesson by adding the small pictures, to the page, and talking about what the prophet teaches us.
Then you remove the picture of the prophet....surprise!
The Prophet speaks for Jesus and Heavenly Father.
Here are some acting props for Ananias and Sapphira. Spoiler Alert: They die.
It might get a little silly acting out this story, because they both just fall to the ground after Peter talks to them about their dishonesty. It might be better for the home/family, but you know your class. If you want one of Peter, there is one from last weeks lesson on the Resurrection. https://www.theredcrystal.org/post/he-is-risen-june-24-30
You know what is funny, both my girls wanted to be Sappira, because she looks so pretty. I had to tell them that she wasn't a good person.(:
Come Follow Me-For primary page 102:
Use paper bag puppets to act out simple situations in which someone is being honest or dishonest. Ask the children to stand up if the person was being honest, or sit on the floor if the person was being dishonest.
Remember these come in Black and White for those that want to make this into a "family puppet night". You can also add yarn, buttons or wiggle eyes for more sensory.
I got some of the ideas for the small stories from the Friend Magazine. The other ones....they never happen in my home or my family. (: I just pulled them out of no where.
Stories of Honestly:
Here is the link to Chapter 56: Peter Heals a Man
I also love this movie that the church put out of this story:
Here is a cute little "lee-ping" man, so happy that Peter healed him.
Here's a mask to help act out the story. If you want one of Peter, there is one from last weeks lesson on the Resurrection. https://www.theredcrystal.org/post/he-is-risen-june-24-30
It think all my kids will want a turn acting out the "lee-ping" crippled man(: Which means we can read the that scripture a couple times.
Here is a fun way for a older Primary age kid to learn the focus scripture.
For amazing lesson Plans:
God bless you all and your efforts you are putting into this program. I know if we keep trying we will be blessed.
Estoy preocupado por las hojas informativas. Por favor, dime si me ha equivocado de traducción.
onga algo de protección sobre la imagen de Jesús, o lamine esta página.
Ponga la imagen del profeta sobre la cima de Jesús. Así es como lo verán los niños.
Después de discutir lo que enseña el profeta, y los niños han colocado todas las imágenes pequeñas en el lugar correcto, retire la imagen de El Profeta y muestre la imagen de Jesús. El profeta habla por Jesús y nuestro Padre Celestial.
