One thing we surely want our children to know is that our Church is led by a prophet of God. We want them to know who he is, learn about him, and listen to him. We know from scripture that our Heavenly Father will never let our prophet lead us astray.

FREE! Downloads to Help Teach Songs for the Children’s Program!

My favorite parts of the Children’s Program are the beautiful songs we get to sing. I’ve been in Primary for about 40 years off and on – mostly on. I don’t know when I participated in my first sacrament meeting presentation, but I don’t remember having them early on when I first started teaching. What I remember is teaching 18 – yes, eighteen! – three-year-olds with an assistant as my first calling in 1974. Fortunately I’m the oldest of 12, so getting little kids to behave is part of my DNA. I “taught,” while the assistant grabbed children and put them back in their seats, over and over. Since Nursery was started, Sunbeam teachers have a MUCH easier time of it, make no mistake. Also, team teaching is great!

This week, I have posted two downloads with visual aids to help teach the program songs. Using a picture with each phrase is my favorite method for teaching new songs, and after being called as a chorister multiple times, I’ve found it to be very effective. I also use many other methods, especially for review.

FREE Ideas for Young Men Downloads!

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 Even though they are out of date, they are still full of ideas!
