3 Nephi 1-10

3 Nephi 1 This morning I didn’t prepare a lesson.  A family in our ward’s house burned to the ground the afternoon before this lesson, and not everyone survived the fire.  I expected to have to answer some pretty serious questions from students related to the fire, and so I prepared by reading a couple of articles on grief and tragedy; however, it didn’t seem to be as much of…

Helaman 1-16

On the board I wrote the following words: trolling, bullying, picking, teasing, joshing, joking, criticizing, gossiping, ridiculing, make fun of, judging I opened with a short discussion about what God sounds like (Helaman 5:28-31) and what that teaches us about God.  One point…

Book of Mormon Review Quiz 1: Introduction to Enos

I used this review quiz to help students remember some of the things we’ve learned since the beginning of the year and so we can have a little fun during March Madness.  There are 20 questions dealing with the Title Page to the Book of Mormon plus others.  Some of these might not help you because it’s stuff we talked about in class, not things that were necessarily in the…

Brigham Bucks

Brigham Bucks is the Seminary incentive program used by Seminary Mom, but you can use them for Seminary, Primary reverence incentives, youth activities, and much more.  Last year I used tickets for our March Madness auction, but this year I am using these bucks because tickets are just too expensive for my class of 16.  I’m hoping to laminate and reuse these Brigham Bucks next year.

Scripture March Madness Mastery Relevance Brackets

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/03/25/scripture-march-madness-mastery-relevance-brackets/ “To help students treasure up eternal truths and to increase their confidence in the scriptures, S&I has selected a number of scripture mastery passages and prepared a list of Basic Doctrines. The study of the scripture mastery passages and these doctrines should be developed together so that students will learn to express these doctrines in their own words and use the scripture mastery passages to help them explain and testify of these truths.” (Gospel Teaching and Learning: A Handbook for Teachers and Leaders in Seminaries and Institutes of Religion, (2012), 10–37. Master Key Scripture Passages and Basic Doctrines [2.7]) This activity is a lot like the Verses VS Verses activity that I used for 2 Corinthians 3-6, but there are also some […]

1 Corinthians 1-14

Ocassionally I get a comment or email from a teacher lamenting that I’m behind them on the lesson schedule.  It may be rough for the three or four people that read this blog, but for me, it’s fantastic.  I get to see everyone else’s ideas before I need to give my lesson. But last year and this, I start to catch up with other teachers in March — just in…
