FREE Thanksgiving Turkey Download!

This week I’m giving you a FREE download of a Thanksgiving Turkey decoration! You can use it on your wall or it can be adapted for classroom lessons, singing time, FHE, or sharing time. Example: for sharing, have children write on feathers things they are grateful for, and assemble to make the turkey. For singing time, write song names or numbers on the feathers and have kids “pluck” one to sing a song.

FREE Downloads of My 2017 Primary Theme Series Books! Available NOW!

Every year for over 20 years, I’ve written books for the LDS Primary themes. There are a bunch of books every year, and I used to sell printed books to bookstores, but now I only sell them on Amazon in Kindle format, with free pdf and Word downloads for printing and/or editing, depending on the book. It’s almost the end of the year, so I’m putting the current 2017 ones up as free downloads. You may still be able to use them, and they serve as samples so you can see what the books are like in case you’re thinking of purchasing the new ones for 2018. Anyway, here they are – just follow the links to get your FREE downloads.

Update! 2018 Primary Theme Series Books – Coming Soon!

The 2018 Outline doesn’t seem to be available on the lds.org website yet. On the curriculum page, it still says “Available Soon.” It’s there, though (in the Gospel Library), and I got a link to it from somebody on Facebook a little while ago. Since then, I’ve been busy working on books for the 2018 theme. The theme is “I Am a Child of God,” and the Outline material is available here  in chapter form. If you want it, go there, and you can copy and paste to get the Outline.

A FREE Activity Book for General Conference!

In my local Primary, they hand out activity pages for General Conference. That’s because it’s super hard for little kids to pay attention for hours and hours over a two-day span. Heck, it’s hard for adults, and I usually need to read the report to remember what was said. That’s because I “sometimes” fall asleep…. even though the talks are inspired and interesting.

This book has activities to help children pay attention, or at least to learn something about General Conference. You can print pages out from your FREE download and use them in any way you choose, including giving them to friends and passing copies out to your own Primary.
