September Week 4 Topic: I can be a missionary now.
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 the week's theme poster and invite them to repeat, "I can be a missionary now".
Explain to the primary children that they can be a fisher of men, or a missionary right now!! Show the primary children the paper fish, place them on the floor or in a little make shift pond. Explain that on the fish are ways they can be a missionary now. Invite a primary child to come up and try to catch on of the fish with the fishing poll. (The fishing poll can be made by either a long stick or a wooden dowel. Tightly secure some string, rope or jute onto the end of the poll. On the other end of the string secure a magnet. Use fish printables in the download above. Print out the fish onto card stock and then print the ways to be a missionary on the other side, cut out and on the paper fish place a paper clip)
When the primary child catches the fish, read what it says on the fish and discuss it as a primary. Ask them questions, give them scenarios about the topic. Continue until each fish has been caught.
To close share you testimony on how we can be missionaries right now, no matter what age we are.
