Ideas for June Week 3 LDS Primary Sharing Time, 


2017 Sharing Time Outline Theme: Choose the Right

June 2017 Sharing Time Topic: I Choose the Right by Living Gospel Principles

June 2017 Scripture: “I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them” (1 Nephi 3:7).

June 2017 Song: “Nephi’s Courage” (CS, 120–21)

June Week 3 Topic: I obey the Word of Wisdom by eating and drinking that which is good and avoiding that which is bad.

Preparation:

Prayerfully study and think about what the specific needs of your primary are and how you can teach them this doctrine. The most important thing 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:

Begin Sharing Time by explaining to the primary children that when we lived in Heaven, we had a Father, we now call him Heavenly Father or Father in Heaven. We wanted more than anything to become like Him. One way that we wanted to become like Him, is that we wanted to have a body like He does.

Our Heavenly Father loves us so much, so part of His plan was that we would come to a mortal world and gain a body.

Ask the primary children how they think they should treat these bodies, that our Heavenly Father has given us? We should take care of them.

Read the following scripture to the primary children, "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?" (1 Corinthians 3:16)

Explain that Heavenly Father has given us some guidelines to help us keep our bodies healthy.


Invite the primary children to read the week's theme poster, "I obey the Word of Wisdom by eating and drinking that which is good and avoiding that which is bad."

Show the Primary children the short video, "Word of Wisdom"

Option 1



Attach to two buckets, Good and the bad labels. Put the buckets up on the table.


In a grocery bag, place the following printables: Apples, carrot, Oats, Chicken, banana, Orange, Brocoli, Beans, Exercise, Smoking/Tobacco, Drugs, Alcohol, Coffee, Tea 

Explain to the primary children that for the activity. One of the primary children will come up and choose an item from the grocery bag and they will choose whether it is something that the Word of Wisdom says is good for our body or if it is something that we should avoid. It is is good for our body, then they will put it in the mouth and it will go to the good bucket. If it is bad and we should avoid it, they are going to crumple it up and through it into the garbage/bad bucket.

Continue with each item.

Close by sharing your testimony of the Word of Wisdom and how we are blessed by obeying it.

Good items:
Apple
Carrot
Bread
Chicken
banana
Orange
Broccoli

Bad items:
Smoking/Tobacco
Drugs
Alcohol
Coffee
Tea

Option 2


On the floor place the fish printables on the floor. Invite a primary child to come and try and catch one of the fish. If it is a good fish, one that has a food that is good for us then we will keep it and put it up on the board. But if it is a bad fish then we will put it in the garbage bucket. 

See above the list of the good and the bad. 

Close by explaining to the primary children that throughout their lives they will need to make choices, the word of wisdom can help us make the choices that will keep out bodies healthy and on the right path that leads to Heavenly Father.

(All printables for both ideas can be found by clicking below. (Print 3 copies of the fish on card stock, if you are doing option 2. You will need to add a paper clip onto each fish. Then for the "fishing pole" add a magnet)
