For Teaching it: ALL of March will be spent teaching it in a combined Singing and Sharing Time
March 7: Since Fast Sunday always runs short on time, we are doing more of an introduction to start. The Primary president is going to talk about prophets, what is a prophet, who are prophets, we are going to introduce our Prophet timeline. Then I am going to teaching the chorus with the sign language (ASL, see above or previous post). Then depending on the time we have left we are going to start learning the verses. We were inspired by the March Friend "Follow the Prophet" activity. If you haven't checked it out yet you need to. We are going to start by matching the phrases to the Prophet. As we match a prophet we are going to put them on our timeline, have a child dress up as the prophet, learn about the prophet (quick lesson about why they were a prophet and their life), and then learn the verse about that prophet. I made helps that go on scrolls. They turned out so cute. The scroll ends I made with big craft Popsicle sticks. Two taped together over lapping just a little at the end. They are just copy paper rolled down with brown construction paper covering the sticks at the ends. The pictures I drew myself, really basic, I didn't glue pictures on because I didn't want the extra bulk. If I was to do it again I would have created it all in photoshop and then printed and taped those pages as the scroll. They didn't take me that long to make, and they work. My favorite one I did is the Jonah verse. I love to draw fish.
