One of the greatest blessings we can receive on this earth is that of having a family! We can be further blessed by having a family where we are taught that we are the children of God. We can learn about our family history and the importance of families. I am offering two FREE downloads this week to help you teach children about families.
Well, we’ve certainly had an eventful time recently. We’ve lost our beloved President Monson and now we have a new president, Russell M. Nelson, with his counselors. Because of that, and the many posts I’ve seen on Facebook about Primary leaders wondering how to talk to children about this, I’ve undertaken some revisions.
Three of the FREE DOWNLOADS had pictures of President Monson on the front and content about him. Those books have been revised or added to, and are now available as FREE downloads for you to use in any way you wish. You can certainly use some of that content to tell the children about our new prophet, President Russell M. Nelson.
When you want to tell children about Jesus Christ and some of the miraculous things He did, what better way than to use some of the stories contained in these 3 kits? Kit #1 tells about His baptism by John, and the Temptation. Kit #2 contains the stories of Jesus calling His apostles. Kit #3 tells about the marriage at Cana and the woman at the well.
When I tell the stories, I prepare the figures by laminating them, cutting them out, and putting hook velcro on the backs, and after telling the stories, I let them play with the figures and tell the stories back to me using my Storyboard. They learn and remember best through play, and they enjoy retelling the stories.
This week I have a FREE kit to help you to have a GREAT Primary Activity! For this activity, you’ll need to ask the children to bring a lunch and dress in their Sunday best, because part of it will take place in the chapel.
You will teach the children about testimonies: what are they? How do they get one of their own? And how do they tell others about their testimonies? This kit has helps for you to teach these concepts to the children.
