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.
This week, I have two FREE books to help you in your Primary! One is a general book with all kinds of stuff, the Primary Idea Book. It has ideas for organizing, sharing time, activity days, bulletin boards, teacher training, class signs, and choristers.
The second book is Visual Aids for Choosing Time, with lots of fun ideas and visual aids for sharing time and singing time.
When you want to tell your child (or your class or the whole Primary) 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 has 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.
At my house, where I live with my daughter and her family, I prepare the figures by laminating them and putting hook velcro on the backs, and after telling my little grandsons 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.
