2017 LDS Sharing Time Ideas for February Week 2: Jesus’s disciples were blessed by choosing the right.

Ideas for February Week 2 LDS Primary Sharing Time,  were blessed by choosing the right.


2017 Sharing Time Outline Theme: Choose the Right

February 2017 Sharing Time Topic: When We Choose the Right, We Are Blessed

February 2017 Scripture: “If ye do keep his commandments he doth bless you and prosper you” (Mosiah 2:22).

February 2017 Song:  “Choose the Right” (Hymns, no. 239)

February Week 2 Topic: Jesus’s disciples were blessed by choosing the right.

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 the Sharing Time by playing a quick game of Leader Says. For example: have all of the primary children stand up. Tell them that you are going to say, "Leader Says," and then tell them an action to do. If they do it then they stay standing in the game.

 Also explain that you might try to trick them by giving them an action to do with out saying, "Leader Says". If they do the action then they will be out, because the "Leader Says" wasn't said before it.  Actions can be like, "Leader says, put you hands in the air", "Leader says, touch your knees". 

After you play the game for a minute. Explain that what the children did was follow a leader. Explain that many people followed Jesus when He was on the earth. These people were called his disciples. 


Show the primary children the week's theme poster and invite them to repeat, "Jesus’s disciples were blessed by choosing the right."

Explain to the primary children that during the sharing time they are going to discuss how Jesus's disciples were blessed by choosing the right.

Show the primary children the fish and the fishing pole. Tell the story of Simon, Andrew and James and John. (Here is the link to the Story)

Explain that these four men were just some of Jesus's disciples. Discuss with the children how they were blessed for choosing the right and following Jesus. 


Explain to the primary children that they are going to play a little fishing game, to find out more about some of the other disciples of Jesus and how they were blessed for Choosing the Right.

(Beforehand print the fish printables, place a paper clip onto the paper fishes mouths, make the fishing pole out of a dowel or stick and secure some twine onto it, with a magnet at the end.  Place the fish on the ground. You could place them on some blue paper if you'd like, but not necessary if you don't have some)

Invite a primary child to come up and try to catch one of the fish. Once they caught a fish. Read the scripture that is found on the back of the fish. Have the primary child go and find the picture that goes with that scripture. 

Discuss as a primary who the scripture is about and how that disciple of Jesus were blessed for choosing the right.

Continue until all of the fish have been caught or you have ran out of time.

Close by sharing your testimony on how the disciples were blessed for choosing the right, and we can be too. Invite the primary children to look for ways to choose the right throughout the week.
