“Two Truths & A Lie”

Sorry it has been so long since sharing.  I’m getting uses to a new schedule and things. Today I taught Noah and the flood. The big principles I taught were:2 Nephi 26:24 and the flood was an act of love to the righteous, wicked, and the unborn.Genesis 6:5 Controlling our thoughts and how to do that with Elder Packard’s talk, “Inspiring Music-Worthy Thoughts” JANUARY 1974Genesis 6:11-12 about how violent media is worse for us than some think. Then I did a work […]

{Sharing Time} Successful Families Work Together

Sharing Time Ideas from the 2014 Outline

IDENTIFY THE DOCTRINE(participating in an object lesson): Invite four children to come to the front of the room. Have each child hold the end of one piece of string while you hold the other ends of all four strings. Ask the children to work together to twist the strings into a rope. Point out that just as twisting the strings together made a strong rope, working together can make a strong family. Put each of the following words on separate word strips: Successful, families, work, together. Attach the word strips to the rope. Invite the children to read the sentence together.

ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING(role-playing): Show a picture of Noah, and briefly tell the story of how Noah built an ark and gathered animals to prepare for the flood (see Genesis 6–7; Moses 8). Divide the children into groups, and ask each group to role-play one way Noah’s family may have worked together (such as gathering wood for the ark, building the ark, and herding the animals). Invite the other children to guess what they are doing. Explain that Noah’s family was successful as they worked together.

ENCOURAGE APPLICATION(drawing pictures): Explain that just as Noah’s family worked together, it is important for us to work  together in our own families. Give each child a piece of paper and crayons, and invite them to draw pictures of their families  working together. Invite several children to share their pictures and explain how doing what they have drawn will help their families be successful.

Sharing Time Ideas from Little LDS Ideas

For this week’s Sharing Time I thought a great way to wrap it up would be to play a fun game of charades. You have discussed that working together can make families strong…you talked about Noah and his family…so I created a ‘Family Charades’ game for you to close with.

 {Sharing Time} Successful Families Work Together
On each of the charades cards are different ‘jobs’ that a family might have (i.e. Vacuum, Take out the Garbage, etc). I also included blank cards as well.

Split the Primary into teams or play as one team, you could even include the teachers for a children Vs. Teachers!

Invite a child up to the front and have them pick a card. Have the child read the card and then give them 30 seconds or 1 minute to act it out. Have the children try to guess what he/she is doing.

After the children have guessed what job it is, invite another child up to the front to pick another card.

Play until all cards have been picked or until time runs out.

Remind the children that as we work together as a family our family can be strong. 

I hope you enjoy my Family Charades game as well as your Primary Children.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day & a great Sharing Time!

Flood worksheet with scripture mastery

I made this handout to accompany my teaching of Genesis 6-8. The top part is an explanation of how it was a blessing for the Earth that God destroyed the wicked in the flood. The second area is a blank for the students to write how they have overcome storms in their lives with God’s help, like Noah. The third section is so that the students can look up the…

Wickedness all around

I warned my kids yesterday that I was supposed to have an observer from the stake in my class today, so they were giving me a bad time this morning. As it turned out, the observer forgot our appointment, and I was off the hook. Above you can see some caterpillars that look a lot like our Delilah. Our Delilah has a much uglier face, though. Today’s lesson went really…
