 I lamented long and hard as to how to "reward" our children when they finished all 13 Articles of Faith. I finally realized that the reward was completing the task. We acknowledge their accomplishment in Opening Exercise, just like when someone graduates from Primary or whatever, but that's it. No whistles or bells or treats, just a handshake and a good job.  Funny thing is, I thought that by offering a treat or a prize, everyone would want to race to 13. But they are more excited without the prize, and we have more kids close to memorizing all 13 than we have in past years when there were incentives.  (Elaine in California)
 Our Primary did a cute thing a few years ago. They made a necklace for each child out of plastic cord and a shield cut out of yellow foam with a wire attaching it to the necklace. Each article of faith was a different colored bead that they could earn when they passed it off to their teacher or member of the primary presidency. When they did all thirteen they got a gold metallic bead which made it even -  7 beads on each side of the shield. The teachers were encouraged to do it as well. The children were reminded to wear their necklaces every week so they would be ready to earn more beads.  Teachers were asked to use extra class time to practice with the children and pass off Articles of Faith. I was a teacher at the time and still have my necklace. The presidency kept track of each child's progress with a basic spreadsheet. (Idea shared by Rebecca from Texas  / ga06182007)

Article of Faith Song Helps for each Article of Faith by Loretta Harbertson [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13]

OTHER:
 
 Article of Faith Keywords - God Punished Mankinds principles, called primitive tongues (and the) Bible revealed Isreal worshipping Kings. Honest!  (Each word summarizes each Article of Faith.  For example, the first word is "God".  The 1st AOF is about God, etc.  Use this sentence to teach the Article of Faith Keywords.)
 Encouraging Primary children to memorize the Articles of Faith - We have a poster board with pockets and a punch card for each child to track their progress. WE reconize those who have passed all 13 during closing exercises and give them a "Big 13" candy bar.  We also have encouraged the teachers help in that when the entire class has passed all 13 we bring them treats during class time. This worked well as the teachers would use the time as kids were coming to class or the weeks when the lesson ends early to practice the Articles of Faith.  (Idea by Megan)
 Teaching the Articles of Faith in Primary from LDS Treasures
 We give our children die-cut keys for each article of faith they have learned. There is a color for each article and a "key word" on each key for that particular Articles of Faith. We give them a metal ring to put them on when they get their first key. They usually keep these in their scriptures. We started out just doing this for the Senior Primary, but the Junior started memorizing their articles of faith also and expected their keys. When they complete them, we give them a cookie tree that our Primary President has made. It is not a competition, just an incentive, and our kids are memorizing like crazy. They love it. It is also nice at the end of their "primary career" to have the keys available to know what articles they have passed off if they have lost their books, or have failed to record everything in there.  I am referring to their Faith in God books.  (Idea by Rebekah Wyckoff)

  • Cecil Prewitt

    when I learned the Articles of faith (in the 70's) we would earn a button to put on a sash. does anyone know where i could find these butons

  • Laura Zumwalt

    I am looking for a way to make a cd of the articles of faith songs in Spanish. Does anyone know where or how? Thanks

  • D Solomon

    You probably already found them, but if not, at lds.org click menu, then in the right column click music, then children's songbook, then in the left column click download a song mp3, then on the index, click w. This brings up some of them, and the rest are on the next page. I hope this helps!
