CHURCH ISSUED LETTERS:

"God offers us counsel not just for our own safety but for the safety of His other children, whom we should love. There are few comforts so sweet as to know that we have been an instrument in the hands of God in leading someone else to safety. That blessing generally requires the faith to follow counsel when it is hard to do." -Henry B. Eyring, "Safety in Counsel", Liahona, Jun 2008, 2–7.

ENCOURAGING CHILDREN TO BRING AND USE THEIR SCRIPTURES:

alt Encouraging children to bring their scriptures by Chauntel Wirrick
alt Primary Scripture Gumball Jar by Anjanette Ludwig
alt To help encourage the children to bring their scriptures to church on Sunday we had a cute glass vase/jar with a ribbon around it. While we sang "Scripture Power" the children held up their scriptures and we counted everyone who brought them (teachers also). Then we placed that many chocolate chips into the jar. When the jar was full (about 3-4 months) they had earned chocolate chip cookies (we threw out the handled chips). The children loved it and if some didn't have scriptures, they could borrow from the library.  (Idea by Jennifer McClure / ga01222009)

JOKES:

alt A bishop was walking down the street one day when he noticed a young primary boy in his ward trying to press the doorbell of a home on the street. The boy was very small and the doorbell was too high for him to reach it, so the Bishop decided to help him by  pressing the doorbell. Crouching down to the child's level, the Bishop smiled benevolently and asked, "And now what, young brother?" To which the boy replied, "Now we run!"

THANKING THOSE LEAVING PRIMARY:

alt Goodbye song for departing presidency (or teachers) by Loralee Kurzius
alt Saying goodbye to the pianist
alt The Goodbye Song
alt We sing "If your SAD and you know it .... wave goodbye" sung to "If your Happy" in the Primary children's songbook! They LOVE IT! (Idea by Jen Lefler / ga02122008)
alt When our pianist moved, I decorated a really cute jar with musical stickers and words like "____ Ward Primary Loves You!", etc. Then I told the children that he was leaving and that I was going to "capture" our singing (and his playing) in this jar, so he could open it a little bit anytime he wished to hear our beautiful music! It was really fun. I went around the room while we we were singing and got each child singing directly into the jar, then paused in front of the piano and got the music and pretended the jar was so full I could barely put the lid back on! Anyway, the jar was really cute and the sentiment was lovely.  (Idea by Dianne Gamblin / ga04162007)

TREATS AND FOOD IN PRIMARY:

alt Food for Thought VS. Food In Primary by Laurene Knighton
alt Non-Food Rewards for Primary by Amelia Miles
alt What is the policy for food in Primary? - Food should only be provided when it is included as part of a lesson or as a snack for the children in the nursery class. Be sure to consult with the parents of each child about any dietary restrictions that may be caused by conditions such as diabetes or allergies (see Church Handbook of Instructions, Book 2, 239 or click here and scroll down to "Food In Primary").
