Prayerfully study and think about what the specific needs of your primary are and how you can teach them this doctrine.
Sharing Time Instruction:
Show the primary children a "Faith in God Booklet". Explain that on the back of the booklet is the "My Gospel Standards", further explain that like the 10 commandments these are guidelines that can help keep us on the track to growing closer to our Heavenly Father. When we follow the "My Gospel Standards" then we show our love for our Heavenly Father and Jesus. Have a poster with the "My Gospel Standards", where the children can see them or give each class a copy of the My Gospel Standards printable above.
On the Chalk board draw a large tree. Here is an example:
On the large tree, tape or magnet onto the board the "My Gospel Standards Heart Apples" Invite a primary child to come up and pick one of the heart apples. On the back there will be one of the My Gospel Standards. Invite the child to read the standard quietly to themselves so no one can hear and then have them draw a picture about the standard. Invite the rest of the primary to guess what standard it could be that they drew. Discuss ways the primary children can obey that standard and show love for the Savior. Continue with each "heart apple".
Close by sharing your testimony.
