The theme for July 2017 is a continuation of the June theme: “I Choose the Right by Living Gospel Principles.” This terrific theme gives kids the opportunity to put solid doctrine into practice in their lives. Here are some supplemental ideas to consider:
Week 1: Fasting and Prayer – see Fasting for Beginners – teaching children about fasting
Week 2: Kindness – consider a Pint-sized Service Project to put this principle into action
Week 3: Reverence – try Quiet Game – Reverence Builder, especially as children enter the Primary room. Or try making the simple Reverence-O-Meter pictured here. Elinor explains that if the marker showed “reverent” at the end of sharing time, the children earned 3 cotton balls in a container, “almost there” earned 2, and so on. They were filling a container with cotton balls to earn a party.
Week 4: Honesty – see Honesty: teach them how, as well as what and why
God bless the children of the latter days, and those who love them.
