Preparation: 
Prayerfully study and think about what the specific needs of your primary are and how you can teach them this doctrine.  

Sharing Time Instruction:

Begin sharing time by inviting the primary children to pretend that they lived a long time ago when both the Nephites and the Lamanites were righteous and were called "the people of Nephi". Explain that there were no contentions or disputations, which means there was no fighting. There were no rich or poor, but instead had all things common.  Ask the children what they think it would have been like to live at that time?  Further explain that because of their righteousness they were blessed. They had peace and there were many miracles. Ask the primary children to listen to a scripture you are going to read. Explain that in the scripture, why there was no contention, why they had peace and happiness. Ask the children that when they think they hear the reason to place their hand over their heart.  Read the following scripture:

"15 And it came to pass that there was no contention in the land, because of the love of God which did dwell in the hearts of the people.

 16 And there were no envyings, nor strifes, nor tumults, nor whoredoms, nor lyings, nor murders, nor any manner of lasciviousness; and surely there could not be a happier people among all the people who had been created by the hand of God.

 17 There were no robbers, nor murderers, neither were there Lamanites, nor any manner of -ites; but they were in one, the children of Christ, and heirs to the kingdom of God. (4 Nephi 1: 15-17)

Ask the children to tell you why the people were righteous? "Because the Love of God ... did dwell in the hearts of the people."  Explain that it was because of their Love of God. Explain that because they loved God and remembered him, they were able to make the right choices.

Show the Theme Poster to the children and invite them to repeat, "Remembering Jesus Christ helps me choose the right."  

Draw a big wreath on the board or you could bring a wreath.  Using the printable cut out the ornaments and write the following songs on the back and place them on the wreath (before hand make preparations with your pianist and chorister to sing the following songs):

- "When Jesus Christ Was Baptized" (Children's Songbook pg 102) (Picture: John the Baptist Baptizing Jesus)

-  "I'm Trying to Be like Jesus" (Children's Songbook pg 78) (Picture: Jesus Washing the Disciples Feet)

-  "He Sent His Son" (Children's Songbook pg 34) (Picture: The Birth of Jesus)

-  "To Think about Jesus" (Children's Songbook pg 71) (Picture: The Crucifixion)

Invite a primary child to come up and pick an ornament. Invite them to hold a picture that correlates with the song. See links to pictures above. Sing the song as a primary. Invite the children to think of the words as they sing the song. After each song ask the children for some activities they can do each day to remember Jesus. Continue until each ornament has been picked and each song sung. 

Close by sharing your testimony about how remember the Savior has helped you to choose the right.
