  • Leah Mae  - Sharing Time Preparation

    I love to study and learn about gospel principles because it not only increases my learning, but gets me excited to share my knowledge with others. I wrote about this months awesome topic on my blog here

    http://soyouthinkyoucanlearn.blogspot.com/2013/05/ may-sharing-time-prophets-teach-us-to.html

    I also write about each weeks specific topic, giving ideas for your sharing time. I post links in the comments section of each week, or you can click the primary tab and the top of my blog and scroll until you find the right week.

    Have a great month!

  • Anonymous  - sunday blues

    Sometimes we get the Sunday blues because we have to get up early to get ready for church, eat our food, brush our teeth, and get ready our scriptures and our coloring books.
    Sometimes we get the Sunday blues because we have to pick and choose what dress to wear, how to dress our hair, and what shoes to bare.
    But don't fret the cure to the Sunday blues is not a doctor, nurse, or a vet the cure to the Sunday blues is to get everything ready on Saturday, but that unfortunetly doesn't stop the Saturday blues.

  • Mary Callister  - what lesson do I have for tomorrow

    I am now a team teacher in Primary. Tomorrow is my turn to teach my lesson. I was at a family function last week. My Primary President gave me the book: Primary 2, but the lesson plans and schedule for Primary 3. I have kindergarten and first graders in my class, but the lesson manual doesn't look like the one I taught out of for two weeks while the other teacher was out of town.
    My primary president told me to go to this website to see what lesson I am supposed to teach tomorrow. I can't find that information on your website.
    Please advise.
    Thanks!
    Mary

  • Heather  - mothers day idea

    I fun idea for the kids to give their mom- I little card that I am printing Landscape, so you can fold it into a card. It will Read, "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways..." With space below for them to trace their hand and write on or around each finger why they love their Mom. then they can sign and draw or write a note inside as well.

  • dianerock  - thank you

    thank you for the suggestion of the tin foil to make imprints for the gold plates. I gave each child a book of mormon with my scriptures. on there own they covered their book and said it was their own personal silver plates. Thank you again

  • Valery Behan  - Mother's Day Ideas and handout

    Hi. For our sharing time we are going to talk about following the prophet--President Monson. And because it is also Mother's Day we are showing part of his Oct 1973 Conference Talk "Behold Thy Mother" --just the last section on "mother loved."

    --I've created a handout with the poem he quoted "Which Loved Best" by Joy Allison and I added illustrations, for the children to color while they listen. On the back I may include a "coupon" I owe you one __________(service). I would gladly upload the handout if anyone wants it.

    Then we're printing up the candy bar wrappers with Pres. Monson's quote. Easy craft --just swipe with a glue stick and wrap around candy bars (which are on sale at dollar gen I believe). Happy Mother's Day all!

  • maura lansford  - Mothers Day handout

    this is from a post that is a year old but I am working on a talk with my sunbeam using this poem and would LOVE a copy of any corresponding coloring pages we could use to practice and use the day of. maura.lansford@gmail.com

  • Valery Behan  - Pres Monson talk in April 98 too plus handouts

    Hello again-- I just realized that President Monson also gave his talk "Behold Thy Mother" in the April 1989 Conference too.

    I do have the handout for the poem ready and a separate HERSHEY WRAPPER PRINTABLE that is in black and white (so that you can print it onto colored paper-- this is cheaper than color printing) and it is configured to fit a regular size Hershey bar. **The six packs are actually on sale at Walmart this week for $2.98

    ...plus you can get a dollar off coupon on 2/6 packs from http://hunt4freebies.com/coupons/1-off-2-hersheys- milk-chocolate-bar-6-packs-coupon/

    HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY EVERYONE!!!

  • Clyde A. Murray  - Flip Flops

    Does anyone have an Idea on how to impress upon our children that the prophet and Elder Holland have both taught in General Conference that Flip Flops are not appropriate for Sunday Church attire. Yet many children continue to wear them. How do we stop this trend? In our ward talks have been given in Sacrament meeting and in Primary discussing the matter to no avail. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Cindy

    Clyde, because children are still learning about what is right and wrong, it's important to be careful about teaching correct principles in a way that does not deter them from feeling comfortable about coming to church. Some families can't afford new church shoes for their children, so it's important to be sensitive to that as well. My son has double-wide feet, and it's very difficult (& expensive) for me to find shoes that will fit him so he wears black Crocs to church. I hope that as he grows older, he will be able to find church shoes that will work for him. The parents are the ones who have control over what the children wear to church. So whether it's an issue of modesty or being too casual or whatever, do your best to love the children, teach them correct principles in a way that won't make them feel bad about what they are wearing to church. It doesn't matter if they show up in jeans and and old t-shirt. What matter is they made the effort to be there.

  • maree  - re flip flops to church

    I'm assuming flip flops are what we call thongs. lol
    I would just like to say that I agree totally to what Cindy said in reply to Clyde's concern about wearing these to church. We have similar issues here also and not only with the primary children.
    Issues to what they wear may also arise from cultural backgrounds.
    I have done exactly what Cindy said and made them feel welcomed and loved just the way they are. Some have on their own made the change to fit in like others because they wanted to not because they were told too. :)

    I would drop the issue and just be glad that the children show up and love that they are there

  • Primary Lady  - Scripture Help

    Hi all! Quick question. There seems to be some confusion in our primary regarding scripture/theme/A of Faith during opening exercises. Are the children to share the monthly scripture each week or is it a scripture of their choice? Our ward has not been sharing the theme or A of F weekly. We have a very small primary but are looking for fun ways to incorporate all we've been asked to. Right now our opening is set up like this: Welcome, Announcements, Opening Song, Prayer, Scripture, Talk, Spotlight, Birthdays etc. Please Help!

  • Jami

    In answer to Primary Lady's question we encourage our primary children to choose a scripture that is not the monthly scripture. By doing this we are hopefully getting them excited to share a scripture that they had a part in choosing and also it puts the scriptures in their hand!

  • Melissa  - Week 3 sharing time

    The lesson is on tithing and we are setting up different centers. Here are some ideas for the centers:

    1. One with tithing games from the friend
    https://www.lds.org/friend/2010/02/for-little- friends/tithing-maze?lang=eng

    2. A station for them to look up scriptures on tithing

    https://www.lds.org/friend/2009/02/the-law-of- tithing?lang=eng

    3. Set up jars with various objects in varying numbers. HAve the children count the objects and figure out how many you would need for tithing.

    4. practice filling out tithing slips

    5. read a tithing story from the friend.
    (do a search in magazines on lds.org. There are a ton)

    Hope this helps!
