There’s one Christmastradition I like a lot, and that’s storytelling. When my kids were young, we always told the Nativity story on Christmas Eve, because that’s the reason we have a Christmas celebration in the first place. There are a lot of other great Christmas Stories, and here are three kits for telling them. In a kit, you get a story, some visual aids to help tell the story, activitiesto go with the story, as well as instructions and suggestions.
Calling all choristers! Here are your visual aids for teaching practically every song you could possibly use for Primary. The first book has pictures, wordstrips, and/or actions for teaching EVERY song in the Children’s Songbook.
This week for you I have a FREEbook of ideas, visual aids, and Church history dates for summer! Visual aids and borders can be used for putting up a bulletin board as well as sharing time, singing time, for general use, and in the classroom.

There’s a story every LDS child should know, and that’s the story of Joseph Smith’s first vision.

The first time I was a Primary president, my counselors and I divvied up bulletin board responsibilities. I did what I usually do, which is gather ideas and materials for the ones I was going to be responsible for. Then I went hog-wild and made four books of stuff to put on bulletin boards, one for each season of the year. I got visuals for things having to do with each season and holidays, and added in Church history dates. I actually used the books when I did the bulletin boards. My favorite things are the borders – those borders can be expensive at the store, and they’re more often than not unattractive. Also, have you ever tried to find some to fit your theme? You’re lucky to find a color you like. What I’m going to do is to post a bulletin board book for FREEdownload for each season. Here’s the one for Spring! Look for the others throughout the year!
