This is a worksheet that allows leaders to let Primary children “write” the Sacrament Meeting Program themselves.
Each child/class is given a topic (see below) and invited to share his or her feelings about the topic, with some guidance by
leaders and teachers. A leader then types up the program and gives a copy to each leader and teacher. Individual parts are given to parents of children to practice at home.
Those children giving talks may need more time or prefer to write their talks at home.
The leader that came up with this method held 2 classes behind each Sunday after opening exercises for 10 minutes and let them work on their parts (reminding teachers in advance). In that way, working on the program didn’t take time away from Sharing Time and was
minimally intrusive on class time.
Some younger children may simply restate the topic, and that's fine. You may wish to assign older children the discussion-style questions.
This is the method used by a J. Larsen in the Bloomington 2nd Ward. She provided a copy of her 2005 version, and I have altered it into a form that I hope any Primary can adapt for use in planning this year's sacrament meeting program.
