April Week 1 Topic: Jesus Christ is the perfect example for me.
Prayerfully study and think about what the specific needs of your primary are and how you can teach them this doctrine. The most important this is to love those you teach and to teach them by the Spirit!! Focus on building their testimonies and helping them come unto Christ!
Sharing Time Instruction:
To begin Sharing Time, invite the primary children to think about someone who is a good example to them. It could be a mother, a father, a brother, a sister, a friend, etc.
Have them share who these people are and why they are good examples.
Show the primary children the week's theme poster and invite them to repeat, "Jesus Christ is the perfect example for me."
Explain to the primary children that Jesus while on this earth, showed us how to follow our Heavenly Father. He taught us and was an example of what we should do.
Explain to the primary children that they are going to play a little matching game. (Beforehand print out the matching cards, found below by clicking the "Free download" button. Cut them a part and them place them face down on the board.)
|The four images for the matching game came from lds.org media library|
Explain that there will be one picture card and one scripture card. They need to match the correct scripture card with it's matching picture card. If they do not make a match then they will need to turn them back over and it will be next person's turn.
If a match is made, then as a primary you will read the scripture, discuss the picture and have the primary children share how Jesus was an example.
Continue until all cards are discussed.
Invite the primary children to sing the song, "I'm Trying to be like Jesus". When the song is over invite the primary children to share ways they are following the Savior's example and trying to be like him.
Share your testimony on how the Savior has been an example to you. Close by inviting the primary children to try harder to follow the Savior's example throughout the week.
