Primary 5 lesson 43

I made a little game for my primary class this week.  The Lesson was about the Martin Willey Handcart companies.  So, I came up with this little puzzle (based off of one my kids have) I had the kids cut apart the pieces while I read them the stories from the lesson, then, gave them the big sheet with the handcart on it.  They had to put the puzzle pieces together to fit everything in the handcart.  They loved it! I should mention that there are many ways to arrange the pieces to fit them in the cart, not just the one pictured. I hope you'll enjoy it and get some good use out of it!




I recently received some feedback about my blog.  So, I'm following the suggestion to attach a link to my Etsy shop in each post.  I've got several new things in it, so click below to check it out!

Cedar City Temple

When I first did my set of Utah Temples for Etsy, The Cedar City Temple had just been announced and I couldn't find any imagery to draw from.  Just recently, I was reminded of that by someone wanting to make a quilt with all 17 of the Utah temples.  I am not a quilter, and I can't imagine how you could make a quilt from my little drawings.  But I LOVE the idea of it.  I asked her to send me a picture when she's done. I so hope she does.  Since the Cedar City Temple is all built now, I hurried off and drew a picture of it for her.  Here it is for anyone else who would like it.  Enjoy!  And remember I love to see the projects you all make using my illustrations.

Education.com

A short while ago I was contacted by Education.com.  They are a great resource for teachers and parents alike.  I printed out some of their free worksheets for my girls to play school with.  I was trying to be sneaky and creative in getting them to work on school work without knowing it. They helped their dolls and stuffed animals to do the school work and it actually worked!  Anyhow - Education.com contacted me and asked if I'd be willing to share one of their free worksheets as a download on my blog.  Knowing that many of you are home schoolers, I said "Of course!"  So here it is.  Enjoy it, and be sure to check out their website.  They've got worksheets for everything!

Primary 2018 "I Am A Child Of God"

POSTER/BINDER COVER 




BOOKMARKS


DOOR SIGN

Graphics for the 2018 Primary theme "I Am A Child Of God" are here!  As you can see, there is a binder cover/ poster, there are bookmarks and even a door sign.  All of them also come without text so that those of you who speak different languages can put your own text in.  I hope you'll like them, and that they'll work well for you. 

(ALL FILES ARE ON THE SAME LINK)

I also added this new kit to my Etsy shop.  It's all about reading. I wanted to do some more things for school teachers.  My intention was to make 'brag tags' but I decided that clip art would be more versatile for use.  If any of you are teachers, do you have any opinion on that?  Check in out HERE.

Reverence is more than just quietly sitting...(GIVE AWAY CONTEST)


I just added this new set to my Etsy shop.  Its a series of posters showing kids how to be reverent.  As I was drawing them it occurred to me that they are really a bunch of things we do on the OUTSIDE of our bodies in order to connect with the spirit of Heavenly Father on the INSIDE.  There are actually 13 posters even though there are only 12 in the picture.  If you're interested in Posters with out the words (so you can make put them in a different language) please let me know.

I AM GIVING AWAY A FREE SET of these to 3 lucky winners.  Leave your name and email address in the comments.  I will randomly draw 3 winners next Saturday Sept. 9, 2017.  Good Luck!

Mini-Missionaries!!!

I'm super excited about my primary lesson today.  We are learning about the first missionaries of the church, the places they went, the things they did.  For a fun and educational activity, I have made these mini-missionaries for the kids to color and cut out. (or they can draw their own) I'll have them put their name on the back along with the date and our ward.  Each child can send the missionary along with a letter to someone they know who lives somewhere else in the world. The idea is that the receiver takes the mini missionary around with them and takes a few pictures with it.  Then they can either send it back to the child with a report of his/her mission, or send it on to someone else and post their adventures on a Facebook page I set up called "Mini Missionary Mail". I really hope that people will participate and have fun.  I think it will be so neat for the kids (and me) to see what the church is like and connect with members all over the world!   Click below to download the mini-missionaries - or make your own!

The Wise Man and the Foolish Man


I just love Camille from "Camille's Primary Ideas".  She has the best ideas!  This next month she is teaching The Wise Man and The Foolish Man in primary, and she is using my 'little houses' to do it.  You can find her lesson plans HERE, and you can download the little houses for FREE below.  They are printable that you can cut and paste to put together. I'm including all five houses even though I think you'll only really need two. :D Enjoy!
