April 2014 - week 4

I Can Show Love to Each Member of My Family. 

I know this is late to be used, it took me a while to figure out how I was going to do this week sharing time.  Came up with this idea Sunday morning before church.  Maybe it will be helpful next year.   I made these so the children could choose a family member that they don't see often, due to living far away.  They could draw a picture or write a note.

Comment Post - Family Spotlight

I had this comment come through from Mandy:

I love this idea - I am wondering how to present them. My question - do any of you have separate Jr. / Sr. Primary? How would you do this if you have some of the family in Jr and some in Sr? Any suggestions? I really want to do this in our primary. Thank you for sharing your ideas!

If anyone out there is using this Spotlight idea and you have separate Opening/Closing exercises in your Primary can you please share your ideas on using this.  

Personally, we changed and meet all together for opening exercises now.  I didn't like the redundancy, and it was hard on the bishopric when it was there turn to come in once a month.  Granted if our primary gets any bigger we will have to go back to the separating the Jr. from the Sr.

Sooo....  If you have ideas on how to implement this spotlight into  Primaries that have a Jr. and then a Sr. Block please share and I will add your comments to this post for others to see easily.

Family Spotlight - Spanish

I am so sorry for being late with this.  I have been sick this past week and haven't felt like doing much.
Thank you Blonski Fam for helping with the translation for this.  Enjoy.  Again sorry it is late.  Don't forget to print on legal size paper.

Family Spotlight - Portuguese

Good Afternoon all...  I received a comment a couple days ago from a dear sister, Dani, in Brazil.  She asked for the "Family Spotlight" in Portuguese.  With her help I translated the poster.  Here is the Portuguese version.
Remember that I made the file for legal size paper (8.5x14 inches or 216 x 356 cm).  Enjoy.

New Birthday Coupons

I made some birthday coupons years ago for the Primary that I found on sugardoodle.net  will over the years they have been used many times and frankly they look worn out.  As cute as the birthday coupons are they were also gender specific. 
So on to making new ones.  The Bishopric love to see the children, so we keep a stash of treats with them in the office, for primary children's birthdays. 
Going through the Children's Songbook, I found a birthday song that we don't sing, but I liked the message.

The coupons are simple.  Two to a page. Cut them out paste onto construction paper and laminate for longer life.

Here is the coupon I came up with .....Saved in Google Docs  Primary Birthday Coupons

2014 Family Spotlight

My ward has been doing children spotlights for years and frankly some years are better than others.  We wanted to keep the spotlights in Primary.  It is a good way to get to know the children and teachers.
With the announcement for Primary for 2014 - "Families Are Forever,"  we were excited and wanted to change the spotlight up a bit.  So we are going to spotlight families.

Each family will receive a smallish poster (legal sized paper) to fill in the information, then every month we will pick 1-2 families to spotlight.  I think it would be great, for the whole family to come into Primary, during opening exercises, and introduce their own family.  Our ward is very diverse in "family" make-ups and we feel that each child needs to know that their family is important and awesome no matter what it looks like. 
Our teachers and leaders will also be invited to be part of this. 

There are spaces that the family can put a photo or the children can draw a picture of their family.
We will then hang their poster on our bulletin board for the month.
The picture is also linked.  I have it saved as a google doc file.

Because God Loves Me CS, 234

At one time I had the LDS Primary Children's Songbook on my cell phone.  After evening prayers I go into the my children's rooms and we sing songs together (they have to be quiet soothing ones).  My Princess asked to see my cell phone so she could pick an new song and scrolled down and picked "Because God Loves Me." I had never heard the song, so we sang it. Both of us loved it.
Princess still likes singing the song, but not all the words are correct.  Here is a flip chart I made for her.  Maybe someone else can find a need for it also.  It is a fairly easy song to learn. click on the cover to be taken to google drive file.

CTR 6 - I Can Prepare for Baptism

I was asked to substitute for a substitute last week. It was quite fun, I thought the CTR 6 class about I Can Prepare for Baptism
In the lesson it said to make foot prints for the children to walk on while answering questions of how a certain aspect can help them toward preparing for baptism here are the footprints I made for that activity and the other activities we did.
Quite amazed that with as little as I had prepared we lasted until the end of class.

Ward Primary Teachers Thank You Card from Shutterfly

I have a shutterfly account that I made for our wards Cub Scout unit.  Great idea.  Most of the other leaders and parents have liked having a central online place to get reminders, talk with leaders and share photos.

I recently made some thank you cards for our ward primary teachers using shutter fly.  Thought I would share, plus they said I could get a $10 credit for my next order.  Coolness.

God is the Father of My Spirit. January 2010

Ask: Who are you? Have children say every thing they can think of that answers this question? If no one answers, "I Am A Child of God," ask the question again, "Who are you?" then guide the answers.

“all of [us] are children of the most High” (Psalms 82:6).
“God created man in his own image” (Genesis 1:27)

Show a picture of the First Vision. Who are the people in this pictures?
Joseph Smith saw Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father in a vision.
Most, if not all, of of us today haven't seen Heavenly Father in person, but we can find out what He is like, by reading the scriptures and by seeing how earthly fathers interact with their own children.

Have children describe their father (or other male figure in their life). Write or draw the descriptions down. When the list is a good length, ask: "Would you use these words/pictures to describe Heavenly Father? Could we add or change some words?"

Heavenly Father has given us many things that we can enjoy right now.
Can you think of anything Heavenly Father has given you?

An earthly family A beautiful world for me
Talents Church leaders and teachers
The scriptures Answers prayers

Here is a link to a Scripture Box, it list scriptures that will help remind the children that they are "A Child of God"

Cub Scouts Give Thanks

The April theme in Cub Scouts is Faith with the alternate theme: Cub Scouts Give Thanks. When looking through my son's Faith in God Book, I noticed that one of the activities under Serving Others says: "Write a letter to a teacher, your parents, or your guardian telling them what you appropriate and respect about them. "

Then I was looking through the Cub Scout Academic and Sports Program Guide (belt loops and pins), under Reading and Writing is says; " Write a letter or short story. Read it to your family."

In the Bear Achievement #18b: Jot it Down "Write two letters to relatives or friends"

Since this is so beneficial for everyone, plus it is always nice to receive a Thank You letter. My Pack will be writing notes to people we appriate and say Thank You. Here is a lined page I made for the boys and family members to use.
