Sharing Time Idea from the 2017 Outline

Identify the doctrine (playing a guessing game): Tell the children that you are thinking of a word, and give them clues to help them guess the word. Ask them to raise their hands when they know the answer. Clues could include the following: We had this before we came to earth. It is a gift from our Heavenly Father. It is an important part of Heavenly Father’s plan for us. Satan wanted to take it from us. We use it when we make choices. It is a gift that lets us choose for ourselves. It starts with the letter A. After the children have guessed the answer, say together, “Agency is the gift to choose for ourselves.”

consequences stick

Encourage understanding (seeing and discussing an object lesson): Show the children a stick that has the word choice written on one end and the word consequences written on the other end. Explain that a consequence is what naturally happens because of a choice we make; for example, if we choose to practice playing a musical instrument, we will get better at it, and if we choose to touch fire, we will be burned. Pick up the stick and show the children that every time you pick up the stick, you get both the choice and the consequence of that choice. Ask an older child to read 2 Nephi 2:27. Invite the other children to listen for what the consequences are for making the right choice (liberty and eternal life) and what the consequences are for making the wrong choice (captivity and misery).

Help the children understand that when we make good choices, it leads to freedom and happiness, and when we make wrong choices, it leads to captivity and unhappiness.

Invite two children to come to the front of the room, and let each child hold one end of the stick. Ask the child holding the “choice” end to give an example of a good choice (for example, speaking kindly to others). Ask the other child to share possible consequences of that choice (for example, making lasting friendships). Repeat with several other children.

Encourage understanding (learning scripture stories):During the first two weeks of the month, teach some stories from the scriptures that show how making right choices leads to freedom and happiness and how making bad choices leads to captivity and misery. Scripture stories you could use include the Savior and Satan (see Moses 4:1–4); Nephi and Laman and Lemuel (see 1 Nephi 2–4718); Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego (see Daniel 3); or Alma and King Noah (see Mosiah 17–19). After teaching a story, invite two children to each hold one end of the “choice and consequences” stick. Ask one child to explain the choices made by those in the story and the other child to explain the consequences of those choices.

Encourage application (hearing a story): Place a picture of Jesus Christ on the board. Draw steps leading up to the picture. Draw a stick figure on a piece of paper, and place it at the bottom of the steps. Tell a short story about the choices a child might make during one day. For each choice, ask the children to show whether it is a good choice or a bad choice by standing up for a good choice and sitting down for a bad choice. For example: “Jane took a toy away from her baby brother, and he started crying. When Jane’s mother asked her why he was crying, Jane said she didn’t know.” For each good choice, move the stick figure up one step toward Jesus. Continue the story with other choices until the figure reaches the Savior. Discuss how good choices bring us happiness and help us move closer to the Lord.

Sharing Time Ideas from Little LDS Ideas

The first week of January you will be splitting the idea between two weeks. Luckily, there is a lot in the outline that you can use between the two weeks. Today I am sharing a few ideas that you could use for your Sharing Time lesson. I hope you like what I share! 🙂

Agency is the Gift to Choose for Ourselves

I really like the ideas for the Identify the Doctrine(guessing game) and Encourage Understanding (object lesson), and I think these two ideas would be perfect for the Week 1 lesson. There’s an idea that I found on Sugardoodle years ago, that I shared that would also be great to begin your Sharing Time lesson.

The idea is to have 3 jars up at the front of the room labeled ‘Jar #1,’ ‘Jar #2’ & ‘Jar #3’. Jars 2 & 3 need to be filled with items that would be appealing to the children. The first jar would be empty.
Invite a child up to the front and show him/her the jars. Then tell the child that they can choose anything they would like from Jar #1, and ONLY Jar #1. The child will probably look at you like you’re crazy….or mean haha.
From there you could go on to discuss agency and that “Agency is the gift to choose for ourselves.”
Show the children a stick that has the word choice written on one end and the word consequences written on the other end. Explain that a consequence is what naturally happens because of a choice we make; for example, if we choose to practice playing a musical instrument, we will get better at it, and if we choose to touch fire, we will be burned. Pick up the stick and show the children that every time you pick up the stick, you get both the choice and the consequence of that choice. Ask an older child to read 2 Nephi 2:27. Invite the other children to listen for what the consequences are for making the right choice (liberty and eternal life) and what the consequences are for making the wrong choice (captivity and misery).

Help the children understand that when we make good choices, it leads to freedom and happiness, and when we make wrong choices, it leads to captivity and unhappiness.

Invite two children to come to the front of the room, and let each child hold one end of the stick. Ask the child holding the “choice” end to give an example of a good choice (for example, speaking kindly to others). Ask the other child to share possible consequences of that choice (for example, making lasting friendships). Repeat with several other children.

Fortune Cookie Idea

When looking for ideas on Agency, I came across this Mormonad poster, and thought it might be kind of fun to incorporate fortune cookies with this Sharing Time idea. This would be great for the Week 2 portion of the topic, but you could use it for Week 1 as well.

If you use it for week 2, quickly remind the children what they learned during week 1. You could show them the stick again, and discuss ‘choice’ and ‘consequence’. Then show the children this poster.

January 2017 Sharing Time Idea

Ask an older child to read 2 Nephi 2:27. Invite the other children to listen for what the consequences are for making the right choice (liberty and eternal life) and what the consequences are for making the wrong choice (captivity and misery).

Explain to the children today they are going to be choosing Agency Fortune Cookies. Inside each of the cookies is scenario that is either a good choice or a bad choice. For this activity I thought it would be fun to do a life-size board game, but you could also do the idea in the outline and create one on the chalkboard. Have the child come to the front and roll a die, that will determine how many spaces they will move forward OR backwards. Then have the child choose a fortune cookie and have them read it aloud. Continue doing this until they have reached the picture of Christ.

.

Agency Fortune Cookies

Now that you know the idea, let’s talk about the fortune cookies. These fortune cookies are really easy to put together, and I am sharing some great tutorials to make it even easier.

January 2017 Sharing Time Ideas

First, you will need to print out my ‘Agency Fortune Cookie’ circles. You can also use scrapbook paper. Just cut or use a 3.5″ paper punch. I did use a 3″ punch, and it worked just fine.

Next, print and cut my scenario strips. I only did 1 sheet, so you may have to create a few more of your own. You could also add some scripture story scenarios from the outline in there as well. Once you have all of those cut out, you can get started on putting the cookies together!

.

January 2017 Sharing Time week 1

To put these together you will need glue dots or a glue stick. Grab a circle and lay it printed side down (white side up). Fold it and crease in half (promise me, this crease will make life much easier). Turn the circle so that the crease is now up and down. Grab a scenario strip and fold it in half and place in the middle of the paper (horizontally). Grab your glue dots or glue stick and glue the top of the circle, fold and let dry. Pick up your glued circle and place your finger in one side of the cookie and your thumb in the other side, and push in the middle (where the crease is). Bend until it looks like a fortune cookie. Add a glue dot or some glue so the two sides stick together, and that’s it! Here’s a great tutorial that you can look at if needed. 🙂

Once you have your cookies all folded and put together, place them into a container. Wouldn’t a take-out container be sooo cute! You can find them at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby.

I’m excited to share my 2017 Primary Presidency Planner Pages with all of you today! It’s taken longer than expected, but they’re finally finished. I have thought long and hard about whether I should add these sheets to my Etsy shop or keep them FREE. I know that some Wards don’t have much of a budget, so I have decided to keep my Primary Planner Pages FREE! I am so grateful for all of you, and for your kind comments. This is my way of saying ‘Thank You’ for your support. 🙂

2017 Primary Planner Pages

I have had so many of you say how much you liked my 2017 Binder Covers, so I decided to design my Planner Pages to match.

Here is just a little peek at what you will find in my 2017 Primary Planner Pages. You will find:

Monthly Calendar Sheets

Month at a Glance Sheets

Jr/Sr. Primary Month at a Glance Sheets (for those of you who split)

Let’s take a closer look at some of the sheets included in my 2017 Primary Planner Sheets.

.

2017 Primary Planner Budget Sheets

Each Primary is given a yearly budget. In order to stay within that budget, it is important to plan and track. I have included 4 pages of sheets to help you with your budget. I have included a detailed budget, which includes 2 pages (pictured below).

2017 Primary Budget Ideas

I have also included a Simple Budget Sheet (one page), and a Budget at a Glance sheet (one page). You can use all of these budget pages or just one.

.

Month at a Glance Sheets

When creating my first set of planner sheets, I knew I wanted something that I could quickly glance at when doing opening exercises. These Month at a Glance sheets do exactly that.

2017 LDS Primary Ideas

There is space for you to write who is conducting and who is teaching. Then you have the Monthly and Weekly themes. I added a space for notes because you never know when an idea will pop into your head about your Sharing Time lesson or any other idea.

Below that you will see the Opening Exercises area as well as Birthdays, Baptisms, and Turning Twelve sections. There are 2 different styles of my Month at a Glance sheets to choose from. Those of you who have combined Jr/Sr primary will use my regular Month at a Glance Sheets, but those of you who split will use my JR/SR sheets.

.

Calendar Sheets

You have to have Calendar Sheets in your planner, what’s a planner without Calendar sheets? I have created Monthly Calendar Sheets as well as 2 different styles of my Yearly Calendar Sheet.

2017 Primary Calendar Sheets

The Monthly Calendar Sheets have the dates filled in as well as a place for notes at the bottom.

That’s just a quick peek at some of my 2017 Primary Presidency Planner Pages. You can find my matching binder covers, HERE, and my Monthly/Weekly Info Sheets, HERE. I enjoyed creating these, and hope they help you and your presidency stay organized this year. Would you like to use my 2017 Primary Planner Sheets? Just click the link(s) below!

Sharing Time Idea from the 2016 Outline

Introduce the doctrine: Write each of the following phrases on small wordstrips: For the, Son of man, shall come, in the glory, of his Father. (Wordstrips are available at sharingtime.lds.org.) Display the wordstrips in random order on the board, and invite the children to help you unscramble them. (You may want to make a few sets of the wordstrips and let the children work together in groups.) When the children have put the phrases in the correct order, have them check their answer by reading Matthew 16:27.

Encourage understanding: Ask four children to come to the front of the room and hold up pictures of Samuel the Lamanite, the birth of Jesus, Jesus teaching, and the Second Coming. Discuss each picture with the children. Ask the children holding the pictures to stand in random order. Invite the Primary to tell the children where to move so the pictures are in chronological order.

Encourage application: Draw a line down the middle of the board. At the top of the board write “Jesus Christ will someday return to the earth.” On one half of the board write the following questions. On the other half write the scripture references in random order.

• What are some wonders that will take place when Christ comes again? (Joseph Smith—Matthew 1:33, 36–37)

• When will the Savior come again? (Joseph Smith—Matthew 1:38–40)

• Why should we prepare for the Second Coming? (D&C 38:30)

• How long will the Savior dwell on the earth? (D&C 29:11)

Ask the children to work with their teacher to match the questions to the answers. Discuss the answers together. (See also True to the Faith [2004], 159–61.) Ask the children how they can prepare for the Second Coming.

.

Sharing Time Ideas from Little LDS Ideas

I read on a Facebook Primary group that many are switching weeks 2 and 3. Today I am sharing an idea that you could use for the week 3 topic. Since it’s Christmas, I went with an ornament theme. I actually shared these ornaments last year for THIS idea, which is really similar to this week’s idea. I hope you enjoy this week’s idea. 🙂

Jesus Christ Will Someday Return to the Earth

Begin your lesson with the Introduce the Doctrine idea from the outline. I think the children would love working in groups, and for Jr. Primary you could have them work with a teacher. You could also number the slips, and then hide them around the room. Have the children find the slips, and then put them in order. This would work well for children that can’t read. 🙂

.

‘Jesus Christ Will Someday Return to the Earth’ Ornament Activity

For this activity you will need four small Christmas trees, or have 4 Christmas trees printed onto paper or cardstock (I have provided a printable Christmas Tree for you to use). Label each of your Christmas Trees with one of the questions from the outline. You will also need to print out my Ornament Sheet (link below). On the back of each ornament, write the scripture references from the outline. I also thought you could write a couple words from each of the scripture references that the scripture talked about.

The children will be working in groups trying to find the ornaments that belong to their tree. You could have a small Christmas tree at the front of the room with all the ornaments on it, or you could simply place them on a bulletin board, chalkboard, or poster-board.

At the end, the children will take turns discussing their scripture and showing the Primary their tree.

.

How To Play

Split the Primary into 4 groups, and give each group a tree, and a list of the scripture references (this will make it easier for them to read them without having to go look at the ornaments each time). Have the children read through the scriptures until they find the one that answers their question. Have them look for key words as well. Once they have their scripture, have them come to the front and pick out their matching ornament. If you chose to write down keywords onto the ornaments, have them find those as well. You could also give them a few blank ornaments and have them write down the words. That might start a great discussion with each group.

After everyone has finished, begin with group one and invite them up to share what their question and scripture is. Continue until all groups have had a turn to discuss their question and scripture.

.

There are several pages, just scroll to see all the pages included. I have provided fronts and backs for the ornaments. You can choose to only print out the fronts and simply write on the back of that or print out the backs and glue it on to the ornament.

I hope you enjoy this week’s Sharing Time idea, and are able to use it for your lesson. If you do, let me know how it goes. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and a great Sharing Time!

I would have to say that my favorite holiday is Christmas, and the reason I love it so much is not because of the wonderful music, or the delicious treats, but the spirit of giving that fills the air during this time of year. This last year, my family started delivering treats to friends and neighbors each Sunday afternoon. My children loved helping me bake up some delicious treats, and then choosing families to deliver them to. A few months ago, I decided to come up with a weekly Christmas gift ‘drop-off’ for a Christmas Service Activity for families. But I wanted the weekly activity to have a purpose and to help my children remember the reason for the season, so I decided to focus the activity on Christ and to help invite Him in to each home. I love that my idea and tags go so well with this year’s #LIGHTtheWORLD initiative. This will be a great way for your family to help #LIGHTtheWORLD with Christlike service.

Christmas Service Activity

I decided to create some scripture tags that you can use to drop off each week. In addition to the scripture tags, you will also find a ‘Ponder/Apply’ tag. I made a few changes to my tags, so that you could deliver to any person of any faith. All the scriptures on the tags are found in the bible, and each of them talk about Jesus Christ.

. (more…)

A couple months ago I was asked to come up with an idea for the upcoming #LIGHTtheWORLD Christmas Initiative for Mormon.org. I absolutely loved the theme, but I also knew how crazy busy the month of December can be, so I decided to create something easy, but that could also make a big impact on your family and those around you. After much thought, and talking with family members, I finally came up with my Christmas Service Cards.

Christmas Service Ideas

I really do love the advents, and the ’12 Days of Christmas’ activities, but to be honest after a few days we get busy and stop doing it (at least in our home that’s what happens). I wanted to spread Christmas cheer, but I wanted it simple and something that you could do last minute or randomly.

That’s when I thought of creating some ‘pass-along’ type cards that you could carry with you in your purse, wallet, back-pack, etc. and leave or pass out when you feel the need. You can pass out these cards as-is OR you could attach them to a gift or treat.

For instance, this morning I had to run to the grocery store. As I was paying for my big bag of flour, I grabbed a card from my wallet and handed it to the cashier. I wished her a Merry Christmas and left. I had a busy morning planned, and knew I didn’t have much time to eat, so I decided to go grab something through a drive-thru. I pulled up to the window and asked the attendant if I could pay for the person behind me. I then handed her two cards and asked her to give one to the person that I just payed for.

Those are just 2 examples of many possibilities that you could use the cards for. You could attach the card to a candy cane or bag of hot cocoa and leave on a windshield. How about placing $2 and a card in a Redbox movie, or leaving one in a book that you return to the library. Instead of just handing one single card out, why not hand out a stack of these cards tied with some cute string, and encourage the person to hand them out. (more…)

Today I have my sister stopping by for a guest post. She called me yesterday and talked to me about bulletin board ideas. I told her that people are always looking for bulletin board ideas, so she decided to write up a post compiling some of her favorite kits and freebies that you can use for your 2017 Primary Bulletin Board.

.

Hi! I am Sheena’s [older and wiser :)] sister, Shannon. I am one of the counselors in my ward’s Primary Presidency. In 2017, it is our ward’s turn to decorate the main bulletin board in the primary room. At first I thought that we could create something but after searching and seeing so many great ideas, I changed my mind. There are so many bulletin board banners, posters and kits available focusing on the 2017 Primary Theme “Choose the Right”. Most of the bulletin board kits are very reasonably priced and there are even a few free bulletin board banners, posters or other decorations available. With so many ideas to choose from, I decided to use one of the ideas I found online. I am so glad the rest of the presidency agreed!

Below are some of my favorite 2017 Primary Bulletin Board elements and kits that I found in my searching. Below each photo is a link to the website where they can be found. I hope you can find something that you like.

Sharing Time Idea from the 2016 Outline

Encourage understanding: Divide the children into five groups. Give each group one of the following scriptures and some props or a simple costume to represent the corresponding prophet: Isaiah 7:149:6 (Isaiah); 1 Nephi 11:14–21 (Nephi); Mosiah 3:5, 8 (King Benjamin); Alma 7:9–10 (Alma); Helaman 14:2–6 (Samuel). Invite each group to read and discuss what the prophet said about Christ’s birth. Have one child from each group use the props or costume to represent the prophet and tell the other children which prophet he or she is representing and to read or tell what that prophet said about Jesus’s birth. Sing “He Sent His Son” (CS, 34–35) or “Samuel Tells of the Baby Jesus” (CS, 36).

.

Sharing Time Idea from Little LDS Ideas

I am once again using ideas that I shared back in 2011. They go right along with the outline, but add a little something extra to help keep the kids interested and (hopefully) reverent. I have 2 ideas for you today, I hope you like them and can use them for your Sharing Time lesson. 🙂

December 2016 Sharing Time Idea

Since it’s December, you’ve gotta incorporate presents, right? The children always get so excited when they see gifts, so I like using them in my lessons. For my first idea, you will need a little help from some adults to dress up as the prophets from the scriptures given in the outline:

 Isaiah 7:149:6 (Isaiah)

1 Nephi 11:14–21 (Nephi)

Mosiah 3:5, 8 (King Benjamin)

Alma 7:9–10 (Alma)

Helaman 14:2–6 (Samuel)

You will have a wrapped present for each of the Prophets with their name inside.
A child will come to the front and choose a present and then unwrap it to reveal the name of the Prophet. The ‘Prophet’ will then come into the Primary Room and share the scripture/message with the children. You will then discuss what the scripture means.

When I first heard of this year’s #LIGHTtheWORLD Christmas Initiative, and looked at the calendar, there was one day/theme that caught my eye: Day 15Jesus Worshipped Through Song and So Can You. I immediately thought of Christmas caroling, and thought of some great printables that could be used for your own Christmas Caroling activity.

Christmas Caroling Ideas

I remember going Christmas Caroling with my family when I was younger. I’m sure there were some of my family members that weren’t too excited about caroling, but after we returned home I think we would have all agreed what a wonderful evening it was.

Last year, my family decided to have our own caroling night and delivered treats to friends and neighbors. Although it started off rough, by the end of the night our hearts were full and our children could feel the wonderful feeling of serving others.

It doesn’t take too much work to plan your own Christmas Caroling activity, and I have created some great printables to make it even easier! (more…)

 Since a new star first appeared above Bethlehem, Christmas has been a season of light, reminding us that Jesus Christ is the light of the world. This December celebrate His birth by making the world a brighter place. All we have to do is follow Him—His life, His example, and His teachings. In doing so, we can help #LIGHTtheWORLD.

light-the-world-blog-pic

This year, we have an amazing opportunity to share that light by choosing to do the things Jesus Christ did. Every day leading up to Christmas, you can focus on a different Christ-like behavior and serve others using the suggestions found on Mormon.org or coming up with your own way to serve. There are so many ways we can serve others and light the world. Here is a wonderful video to give you a few ideas, and to help inspire you to LIGHT the WORLD.

.

There is also a Service Advent Calendar to help you figure out what you can do to Light the World. Throughout the month be sure to visit Mormon.org where they will be providing daily inspiration, suggestions, and encouragement on how we can follow the example of Jesus Christ and #LIGHTtheWORLD.

LIGHT the WORLD Kits

Along with the ideas given on the calendar, there are also 9 amazing kits that 9 amazing bloggers have put together. These kits are available for FREE at each of the 3 host sites.

Sharing Time Ideas from the 2016 Outline

Introduce the doctrine: Write “I can show reverence for sacred places and things” on the board, and ask a child to read it to the whole Primary. Ask the children to close their eyes and to raise their hands if they can hear when you drop a coin or button. Tell the children that the church building is a sacred place and that sitting still and listening carefully is one way we can show our reverence. Invite the children to share several other things they can do in church buildings to show reverence.

Encourage understanding: Display a picture of Moses and the burning bush, and tell the story found in Exodus 3:1–10. Read aloud verse 5 and have the children listen for why the Lord asked Moses to take off his shoes. Explain that we do not have to take off our shoes to be reverent, but there are many things we can do to show reverence for sacred places and things.

Encourage application: Display some of the following pictures: a temple or a church building, a home, a family, someone praying, a child, the scriptures, a group of children, a Primary class, and the sacrament. Hold up a large cloth in front of all the pictures and remove one picture. Take away the cloth and have the children tell you which picture is missing. Show the missing picture and invite the children to share a way they can show reverence or respect for the place or thing in the picture. Repeat with the other pictures.

.

Sharing Time Ideas from Little LDS Ideas

For this week’s idea I started working on an idea, but then I changed plans and decided to create a fun ‘Turkey’ themed sharing time. The idea goes right along with the outline, but with a little ‘Thanksgiving’ twist. Enjoy!

Reverence Sharing Time Idea

Begin your sharing time with the idea given in the outline, I think the children would love trying to see if they can hear a button drop. Write “I can show reverence for sacred places and things” on the board, and ask a child to read it to the whole Primary. Ask the children to close their eyes and to raise their hands if they can hear when you drop a coin or button. Ask the children if they know of any places that are sacred. Have them raise their hands to share their ideas. Discuss reverence, and explain that it is more than sitting still and listening. (more…)
