Sharing Time Instruction:
Begin the sharing time by explaining to the children that you are thinking of a word that describes a time and place that would be a great time to remember Jesus Christ. Invite five children to each ask you a yes or no question, so they can try to guess what you are thinking about. Questions might be as such: Is it at church? Is it at home? Do you need to be reverent? etc. After they have asked their yes or no questions. Ask if any one can guess what the word is you are thinking about. Thank the children for their participation. Hold up the poster, "The sacrament is a time to remember Jesus Christ." Invite the children to repeat the phrase with you.
Invite the primary children to play a game of memory. Before class, print out the above scripture/picture cards. Place them on the board face down. To play, invite a primary child to come up and pick two cards. If they do not match then they turn them back over. If they do match then you will read the scripture and discuss each picture.
Continue game, by inviting another child to come up and chose two more cards. Continue until all cards have been matched, scriptures read and discussed.
Encourage the primary children to remember Jesus, during the sacrament. Bear your testimony about this weeks topic.
