March Sharing Time WK 1

I'm teaching this week because my brother-in-law is going on his mission and his Farewell is the normal week I teach so we did a little switch-a-roo.

So for this week we are going to be building our testimonies!! Quite literally, I found a fun idea in the Friend (December 1991)of building a wall with a strong foundation, and I knew this was the lesson.

This is the picture I'm using, I'm printing it as a large poster (if you'd like the files- it's cut into 2-11x17s- please email: latterdaychatter@hotmail.com) so I don't have to worry about accidentally ruining a library picture.


Directions and printouts included in the download.

Good luck in your Sharing Time!!

Reverence: Hatched Eggs

We had a presidency meeting a few weeks ago and we were tossing around ideas and one of the gals suggested hatched eggs for the sunbeams (apparently this isn't a new idea and she got the idea from somewhere but she can't remember where, so if you know the first source please comment so I can credit)
They turned out so cute! I've even color coded them so you can give different birds for each egg (if you want)

How to use:
Print out the eggs and laminate for extended use. The eggs are a decent size and are big enough for the Sunbeams to use.
Tell the Sunbeams that through Sharing Time/Singing Time that they need to keep their eggs warm so that they can hatch a little bird afterwards.
The Birds are stickers and will fit onto the Avery template for the sticker paper (you don't need to download anything, just print as an 8.5x11 page onto the sticker paper) I used a circle punch (1.5 inch) to cut the birds out.

(if you're interested, I also have the Silhouette print/cut files for the eggs, email me if you'd like those)

February Sharing Time WK 4

The fun game I couldn't wait to pull together, and is so much fun to look at! Such a fun way to share the good choices and bad choices of life. Includes a 2ft board with a key and 5 big ships to play a church version of the game Battleship. It includes 2 sheets of scenarios both hits and misses and blank sheets to add your own.

Note: I've had a few gals ask to explain better how to use the ships and hit/miss pieces:
#1 cover the ships with a big white paper (abt 5-6 computer printer papers glued together) then as the kids "hit" the ships use an exacto knife or rip the paper so that part of the ship (don't expose whole ship) is exposed then use a hit scenario. You could also have a member of the presidency to help with this part. It’ll be less disruptive with the help because then you wouldn’t have to stop. 


#2 you could print another large board and put it the other side of the chalk board with the hit version (teacher or member of presidency behind doing the hit version). You can then do all the scenarios at once.

#3 The hit/miss pieces are used when the kids say C6, A8, etc. When one of your ships are there (spread out your ships across the board) Red is a hit and white is a miss. So you'll glue/tape a red/white piece depending on if they've hit one of your ships (they must "sink" your ship- all gray bullets are filled on that ship- then you say "sunk". To make it easier on the Junior Primary you could also show part of the ships so they kind of know where they are, but that would entirely depend on how young your JP is.

Please comment below or email me (latterdaychatter@hotmail.com) for other questions about the game. I'll be available to answer emails until 10:30 (MST) tonight.

Thank you ladies for all your support!

February Sharing Time WK 2


I have been looking forward to this Sharing Time for about a month now. This week it's my turn to teach!!

Our Primary has been really rowdy the last few weeks so I'm hoping that if I put those older kids in "charge" of the groups that there will be more cooperation from them. Because we have a small Primary, we meet together for Singing Time and Sharing Time and I think sometimes that the older kids are bored. So we'll see how it goes.

I'll throw all the pieces into different envelopes and hand them out to the groups with a scripture that goes with each creation day. As each group comes up, we'll discuss each creation after reading the quick scriptures. There are a ton of pieces so I think all of our Primary will be able to participate in one form or another.

I'm still debating whether or not to let the older kids do some of the cutting to help with the little kids. Your thoughts?
