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 children a picture of the Savior serving the Apostles.  Invite the children to share with you what Jesus is doing in the picture. Read the following scripture: 

12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
 13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
 14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.
 15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
Show the children the month's Theme Poster and invite them to repeat, "Jesus Christ taught us how to serve others."  Pose this question to the children, "How does Jesus Christ teach us how to serve others?"  Some discussion might include, that he was an example to us of how to serve as shown in the scripture and picture above; he also taught us in parables.
Play the following video of the Good Samaritan or you can have the primary children act it out. There are also little printable puppets they could use to tell the story.  Here is a link to the printable (you could tape them onto craft sticks)
Here's the video linkChapter 35: The Good Samaritan
Conclude by inviting the children to share how they can be like Jesus and the Good Samaritan and serve their neighbor.
Write these ideas on the board and make sure you thank the children for their ideas and participation.
Close by sharing your testimony on the topic.
