Lesson 20

Click here for lesson from Manual    |  Primary 7 Main Page |   << Lesson 19 - Lesson 21 >>



PURPOSE: To help each child have a desire to show love to all people.

1. Primary 7 Lesson Cards

2. Valiant 10 Newsletter by Fran English

5. Good Samaritan Picture

6. Parable of the Good Samaritan by Ericka Covalt - Power Point Presentation

7. The Good Samaritan

8. Choose a child to come forward and write one thing on the board of how they can help others...then go to the next person until everyone has one or two turns.  (Open doors for them, do chores, send cards, be nice, share what we have, include them in activities, etc.)  Instead of writing them on the board, you could have them make this booklet.

9. Introduction Activity - "Collecting Compassion" - From construction paper, cut out the letters, COMPASSION.  Make them approximately 6" high.  Using tape, make a hopscotch board on the floor.  Make sure the squares are large enough for them to jump into with both feet.  Put the construction paper letters in the corners of the squares, one letter to each square.  Do not put them in any order.  Give each child a penny.  Explain that the letters on the hopscotch board when collected will spell a special word from the lesson.  It is a long word, but an important word that every person should know about. Each child takes a turn tossing their penny and trying to land it in one of the hopscotch squares.  When they land in one, they hop in all the squares up to where their penny is, pick up the penny and the construction paper letter and finish hopping the rest of the way to the end of the board.  When all the letters have been collected, arrange the children in the correct order so the word, compassion, is spelled.  Tell them what the word is and explain that it means love in action.  It means your heart feels so much love and sympathy for someone,  you want to show it by kind acts and words.  Only Jesus can give us this compassion.  He gave it to the man in our story today...tell the story of the Good Samaritan.   (Adapted from Kindergarten Sabbath School Program)

10. For this activity you'll need box of Band-aids, poster board and a permanent marker.  Ask the children why we apply bandages or band-aids.  (To help heal wounds) The bandage or band-aid doesn't heal the boo-boo, but it protects the wound while the miracle of healing takes place.  We cannot heal all the hurts that people have.  Sometimes people's bodies get hurt very badly.  We cannot heal them.  Sometimes their feelings and hearts get hurt very badly.  We cannot heal them.  But Jesus wants us to be like a bandage or a band-aid.  He wants our compassion  (remember what that word means?) And love to protect a person while He does the healing.  Let's talk about some boo-boo's that children might have on their bodies and in their hearts.  On the poster board write in small letters the ideas the children give you about what hurts them.   (Examples: A dog bite, being cut with a knife, unkind words, mommy or daddy leaving home, being made fun of etc...)  Write each idea separately and spread them out all over the poster board.  After writing as many ideas as the children can come up with, give them all some band- aids.  Before applying a band-aid "over one of the wounds written on the poster board" ask a child to think of something they can say or do that would help the wounded child.  (Don't forget PRAYER!  Even when there seems like there is nothing we can do, we can pray for that person)  The activity is complete when all the wounds talked about are covered with band-aids.  Encourage the children to look for "wounded" people this week that they can love and help. (Idea from Kindergarten Sabbath School Program)

11. The Good Samaritan (video clip you can download) - Jesus tells the parable of the good Samaritan to illustrate the commandment to "love thy neighbour as thyself." This New Testament video can enrich your preparation for Sunday School.  (12:23)

12. Emma's Place

13. The Good Samaritan from the May 1991 Friend

14. Sing or say the words to "Kindness Begins with Me" (Children's Songbook, pg. 145).

    I am so sad that there aren't any more Valiant 10 Worksheets???? What happened to these wonderful sheets? My Valiants just loved doing these worksheets each week as an extension activity and to work on at home home during the week. Please, please bring them back again.
    Thank You!!!

  • penny

    YES! I agree with Ani..whomever was making the Valiant 10 worksheets..... I was using those every week! Your efforts were not wasted, but they were magnified!!! My kids look forward to them and miss them!

  • Ericka

    You might be ahead of the lesson Fran is doing. I know some teachers are ahead of me due to when we have stake conference, etc. I love her newsletters too, but I'm not up to this lesson yet. Ericka

    I used those newsletters too... Wow!!! My class will be disapointed!!! :sad: I hope you reconsider and keep it going... :roll:

    After Our primary meeting last week, I took the challenge, and ask others to do the same. I missed Fran English's Newsletter this week, but hope to see them coming. Did you have Stake Conference this week? Anyway I appreciate them. Last week I went to the homes of all the inactive members of my primary class and gave them a copy of the newsletter. I hope to do it again! Please keep the Valiant 10 newsletters coming!

  • Bonnie

    I loved Fran's Valiant Newsletter too. I will continue the idea with a newsletter of my own. It will not be as fine but she showed us the way and following her example will help. I will continue to look for another one from Fran however. Thanks

  • Fran English

    From Fran:
    I still do the newsletter everyone! Thanks for the comments. Ericka is correct. I was not up to this lesson yet due to conferences. Sorry if that doesn't fit with your schedules, but I'm doing my best to keep up. This one is a little later than I hoped, but there were other things that took priority this week.

    I like that website and I often find interesting activities there, so thanks for sharing. I printed a couple of their sheets to add to my packet of handouts.

    I wanted to share a something that I did with my class that was a huge hit today. As a handout type thing to go with the lesson, I got neon band-aids (dollar store) and wrote "Compassion" on one for each child. After our compassion hopscotch game, I gave them each a band-aid to wear that day (even I wore one)to show the other kids that we heal others wounds by showing compassion. The other kids in primary wanted them also. So I'd say they were a big hit.
