We are blessed when we keep the commandments: 1st Week Sharing Time Idea for September 2012
IDENTIFY THE DOCTRINE(seeing an object lesson): Invite a mother to bring her baby to sharing time. Invite the children to share some rules that would help keep the baby safe. Tell the children that we are all Heavenly Father’s children; He loves us and gives us rules or commandments that will keep us safe and happy. Show a picture of Moses and the Ten Commandments (found onthis page), and briefly tell the children how Moses received the commandments (see Exodus 19-20).
ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING (singing songs): Put the following three phrases on the board: “Respect and Worship God,” “Honor Parents,” and “Respect Others.” Tell the children that the Ten Commandments can be separated into these three categories. Divide the children into groups and give them each a song that relates to one of the categories. Ask each group to decide who will sing the song (for example, boys only, girls only, or those wearing red). After the song is sung, ask a child to post the song under the proper category. Consider using the following songs: “Saturday” (CS, 196), “Quickly I’ll Obey” (CS, 197), “My Dad” (CS, 211), “The Church of Jesus Christ” (CS, 77), and “Kindness Begins with Me” (CS, 145).
ENCOURAGE APPLICATION (singing a song): Sing “Keep the Commandments” (CS, 146-47), and ask the children to listen for the promises we receive when we keep the commandments. Invite them to share how they are blessed when they keep the commandments.
Sharing Time Idea from Little LDS Ideas
What a busy day! We announced our giveaway winner and now I have a Sharing Time idea to share.
I know you all are probably enjoying your Saturday, so I’ll make this short and sweet!
Today I have a great Sharing Time idea for all of you. And you’re extra lucky because I have it typed up and ready for you to print out and use. 🙂
It goes right along with the Sharing Time Outline, but with just a few little changes.
I have included 2 different ideas to introduce the theme.
The ideas that I share are sure to be a hit and grab the children’s attention.
Then I have a fun activity for the children to learn and discuss each of the 10 commandments.
At Little LDS Ideas my main purpose is to share my ideas to help make your life and calling a little easier. Maintaining my blog takes a lot of time and work, but I love doing it. However, I too have to make some money to keep my blog up and running. My blog may contain paid advertisements, sponsored posts, giveaways, and affiliate links. All sponsored and affiliate content will be clearly labeled.
I want you to know that my opinions are always 100% my own, and I wouldn't share anything on my blog that I, myself, wouldn't use.
