Abraham & Isaac Worksheet/Glue-in

Lesson Plans: October 2015

Before I share my ideas for October, I wanted to leave a quick reminder.  We all enjoy planning seasonal or holiday-themed activities from time to time and I agree that they can be a great way to engage children.  Be careful, though, that the…

General Conference Activity II

We had to revise our activity just a bit so I thought I would share how the changes we made.  We still used some of the ideas from my last post.First off, as mentioned in my previous post, we did discuss the calling of new apostles as well as play…

You've got a computer or file cabinet full of great ideas you've collected over the years from past callings, right? So did we! In 2003, Jenny Smith began sharing her ideas online for LDS teachers and leaders. She hoped members of her home branch in Mississippi would benefit from the activities she was hearing about in areas where the church was more established. She also began sharing her lesson handouts so that teachers didn't have to re-invent the wheel.

After seeing that the demand for these helps was huge, Jenny, working with her husband Jared, responded by creating the first ever database of LDS clipart and handouts. Soon followed the first and largest database of object lessons, the first ever database of Primary Talks, the first database of Scripture Mastery games, the first ever database driven helps for every lesson in the (old) Young Women and Primary manuals (now deprecated), and most recently, the first ever database of gospel teaching techniques. These databases grew with Jenny's own work and with the generous contributions of users like you.

Believing that gospel information should be shared freely and generously, the files and ideas on Jenny's websites can be downloaded for free -- no registration or paid subsciption required.
