Spiritual Remedies from “Heavenly Halls Medical”

Today we began the study of Helaman, chapter 1-6. I intend to cover these chapters over the next two days. And when I begin a new book within The Book of Mormon (Alma, Helaman, Words of Mormon, etc.), I like to give an overview so that the students have a global understanding of what we’re about to microscopically look at. For the overview, I print up summaries of each (or…

Scripture Scholar: Helaman 10-12

Today we finished up our scripture block of Helaman 7-12 for the week. I wanted to students to really “dial in” the events which occurred in the final three chapters of the block: 10-12. I followed the manual, using some of the quotes listed for chapters 10-12. Once we finished with some of the suggestions in the manual and also reading the chapter headings for the three final chapters of…

Seminary Mom: Topsy Turvy Timeline Files

ACTIVITY: I devised a Topsey-Turvey Timeline by going verse by verse through Alma 43. Writing down what I felt were pertinent moments in the chapter, I came up with a rough timeline. Then, using the clip art that came with my computer, I found a symbolic picture for each part of the timeline, placing that next to each phrase. Once that was complete, I then mixed up the order as…

Stretch a little Higher, Be a little better, Enlarge thy tent

As a prelude to the lesson, I began by calling a student volunteer to the front of the room. As it happened, it turned out to be the tallest student in the class. I asked him to show how high he could reach. He went over to the wall and rested his verrry long arm at a very tall spot on the wall. Then when it appeared he had reached…

Splitting Students into Teams to Learn the Gospel

Seminary Mom likes to split her classes into groups for gospel learning. Here’s how she taught 3 Nephi 11 over the course of two days, while splitting into groups for researching the scripture topic: Today was a special day as we began our study of 3 Nephi 11, the crowning moment in the Book of Mormon. I know that the suggested teaching schedule recommends teaching 3 Nephi 11 in one…

Are you Paying Attention?

Object Lesson

Display a picture of a bird and a quarter. Then tell the following story: Two men were walking down a busy city street. The one asked the other, “Listen to that bird.” “I don’t hear a bird,” the other replied. “No, you must listen harder.” The second individual listened very carefully and after a few seconds, he finally heard the bird amongst the hustle of the street. The first individual…
