Lesson Plans: February 2014

  • Introduce the difficult words in the song "I Will Follow God's Plan" using one of the methods described in the first section of this post.  I suggest including the words "purpose," "seek," "direct," and "fast"
  • Teach the song "I Will Follow God's Plan" using the flipchart and activity found here
  • Or, since this month's song is short, you might try teaching the sign language using the easy-to-follow video on the church website.  (Links to the videos are on the right side of the page)
  • Review the difficult words with the Secret Word Game.
  • Practice this month's song or other songs with the reinforcement activity, the Musical Compass. 
  • In Senior Primary, try the fun Review Puzzle!
  • In Junior Primary, sing some familiar songs that go with the weekly themes to see if the Sunbeams know them.  Review if necessary.
    • Week 1:  Heavenly Father has a plan for His children:   "I Lived in Heaven."
    • Week 2:  Heavenly Father commanded Jesus Christ to create the earth as a home for His children:  "My Heavenly Father Loves Me."
    • Week 3:  My Body is created in the image of God:  "The Lord Gave Me a Temple."
    • Week 4:  Agency is the gift to choose for myself:  "Choose the Right."  
  • Talk about the ways Heavenly Father shows us that He loves us with the Valentines Activity

  4. I used your Review puzzle for not only the Seniors but the Juniors. Just gave the Junior primary some extra helps and I moved the word strips instead. It was a bigger hit at the end with the Junior primary. The senior's had it already figured out. Thank you for all your amazing ideas.
