November Plans

Sorry I have been MIA, life has been crazy and then I got sick. I am planning on keeping it pretty simple this month. We started out the month by learning Latter Day Prophets, and I plan on just doing some gratitude songs with a little Christmas mixed in. 

Most of the older kids all ready knew Latter Day Prophets but I thought that it would be really fun to play Who Am I? I bought one of the picture packets that has all of their pictures and I would read from the back of it when they were born, any interesting facts, when they were sustained as prophet, etc. I would then have them guess who it was and how long they were Prophet of the Church for. When we had figured out who it was we hung their picture up on a string that I had going from one side of the room to the other. The kids & teachers really enjoyed learning about all of our Prophets!! 

I am hoping to be able to post about our upcoming Thanksgiving & Christmas activities in the next few days! 

Saying Goodbye

One of our Primary teachers is leaving on a mission in a few days, so last week the Primary President asked me if I would come up with a card that we all could sign for him. I instantly knew what I wanted to do, a giant tie!! I drew the basic shape on a piece of poster board that I folded in half and then cut it, I then covered it in some boy-ish looking paper and we were good to go. It was a huge hit! We also issued a challenge to our kids that while our Elder is out sharing the gospel with others that they will do the same, I am in the process of designing some postcards so that anytime one of the kids do a Missionary Act they can write a postcard to our Elder and tell him about it. I can not wait to see how many postcards we will be sending out!! 
 Sorry for the bad picture I had to hurry and snap one with my phone before Primary started.
