Years ago, the Young Men and Young Women programs both had lesson books for Sunday meetings, and we made books that had handouts/activities for every lesson in the three-year series of manuals. This week I’m featuring the old Young Men Classroom books. Even though they are out of date, they are still full of ideas!
Are you in a Primary presidency, or are you a Primary chorister? These books have been written especially for you. The first book, 2018 Primary Theme Book, is the essential one for Primary presidencies. It has helps for planning the year, tips for the children’s program, and – count ’em – two sharing time ideas for every month. Some of the sharing time ideas help you do suggested activities from the Outline, and some reinforce scriptures or ideas from the Outline. I’ve been a chorister, counselor, and president in Primary, and have also taught every age group in 40+ years in Primary callings. I like to use use things that have helped me, as well as being easy and quick to prepare. Click the images to go to my gloriannemuggli.com website page, where you will be directed to Amazon to purchase the books.
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.
This week I have a great kit for your FREE download! It’s a kit with parts to a chart that you can use to teach children about the Plan of Salvation. Put it together while explaining God’s plan of happiness.
Use this kit any way you want. You can use it in sharing time, in a class, in FHE, or at home for the children to play with. You can even give the file away to your friends.
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.
