Young Women Presidency Leadership Training Handouts (Adults)

I made handouts for the bishopric to use when they issue calls to new class presidency members a few months ago, and so I decided to make Young Women Presidency leadership training handouts for adult young women leaders at the same time.  It has helped me focus in on my responsibilities as young women president and helped me understand the duties of my secretary and counselors.  Ideally, these handouts will be passed…

Young Women Class Presidency Leadership Training Handouts

I made these handouts for the bishopric to use when they issue calls to new young women class presidency members.  We have found that often class presidencies and parents do not understand the expectations for their calling, so I created these files to help young women and parents understand what their assignment entails. There are three Class Presidency Leadership Training Handouts, each describing one of the callings: class president, class…

{Primary} Teacher Birthday Gifts

When I served in the Primary Presidency several years ago the President found ‘coupons’ to give to the teachers on their birthday.
The coupons were for a ‘Sunday Off’ so that they could go to Relief Society/Priesthood.

Well, I’m back in Primary and asked the President if we could do something similar for our wonderful teachers.
Today I would like to share what I created for our teachers.

{Primary} Teacher Birthday Gifts


I began by searching for ideas on Pinterest (gotta love Pinterest!). I was on the search for Birthday Gift ideas for the teachers as well as ‘Thank You’ ideas for substitutes (post & printables to come soon).
As I was scrolling through Pinterest I came across a cute printable (found HERE) for a Kit Kat bar. The printable was for school teachers and it wrapped around the entire bar, but I liked the phrase on the printable ‘You Deserve a Break’.

I decided to use the ‘Kit Kat’ idea along with the coupon for our gifts.

{Primary} Teacher Birthday Gifts

I saw a few different versions of the ‘coupon’ on Pinterest, here is one teacher appreciation coupon on Sugardoodle. I decided to change a few things, so I got to work creating my own coupon and a tag for the Kit Kat.

Here is the finished product! What do you think?
{Primary} Teacher Birthday Gifts

I had some clear plastic boxes that I thought would work great. I decided to use the Kit Kat miniatures and added a few to the box and then wrapped the box with some twine (ribbon or string would work great too). I punched a hole in the ‘Need a Break’ tag and tied that on to the string. Then I slipped the coupon underneath the string.

You could also buy the full size candy bars and place the coupon on top and tie some string/ribbon around it and add the tag.
No matter what you do I’m sure your Primary teachers will love it! Because who wouldn’t like chocolate and a Sunday off?!?

Today I am sharing my Teacher Coupon Printables with you!

And to all you amazing primary teachers out there…Thank you for all you do.

 “No greater responsibility can rest upon any man [or woman],

than to be a teacher of God’s Children.”

{Pres. David O. McKay}


You may feel like your calling isn’t as great or as important as some other callings, but I think yours is the greatest. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Must the presidency sit at the front during meetings?

The post Must the presidency sit at the front during meetings? appeared first on Jenny Smith’s Awesome Mormon Stuff.

I’ve been in three Relief Society presidencies, and each group has had someone ask if they have to sit at at the front of the classroom during meetings.  In the past I’ve said it’s up to you, but today I stumbled on this article from Elder Boyd K. Packer.  He says something different: The things […]

Reminding Children to Bring Scriptures

I visited another unit this weekend, and saw this poster on the Primary bulletin board. The stickers read “I brought my scriptures to Primary”, and you can see that one poster has been completely filled up and the other is already pretty full. I assume that children are given the stickers (which are just regular old standard Avery Printer Labels) to paste on the poster when they remember their scriptures….
