Thoughts : I am back and we have internet 🙂
I felt that this weeks was a perfect place to connect the Old and the New Testament, and the Book of Mormon. Really the PG too. I love when we can connect the ideas across books of scripture and help children see the beauty of God’s words that have been preserved.
Identify the doctrine : I wanted to start by telling the story of Jesus and his teachings of what Jesus Talked about in Matt 12 ,specifically 28-33. . I think teaching the children to focus on the two greatest commandments. I want to simplify the process on the board of what we can do to LOVE GOD and LOVE OUR NEIGHBOR.
GAME: Who is our Neighbor?
I want the kids to sing the following songs: While passing out sticky things to put on the board. To confirm who is our neighbor.
I want to be Kind to Everyone, I Will Walk With You, Jesus Said Love Everyone, Love One Another.
Have the children sing them. If your primary does not know them I will be using signs or have your music leader make them if he/she really likes that kind of thing. Ask the children “Who is your neighbor?”
Encourage Application: How can be better neighbors? And why would God ask us to be good neighbors?
