I hope these lesson helps are informative.  However, they are just suggestions and in no way meant to replace the lesson manual.  Rather, my intent is to give you extra ideas in case your lesson runs short or to help add to your lesson.  Only you have the inspiration needed to fulfill your calling.  Most of the following suggestions come from, or are adapted from, the Friend Magazine, Primary Manuals or FHE Manuals.  May you be blessed in your efforts to teach the children about our Savior and His gospel.   If you have something that you've prepared and you would like to share it with all of us, feel free to  e-mail me.

TIPS AND IDEAS -

- Children's Scriptures: Great Idea
- Great idea for Junior and Senior Primary Teachers - Every week I post a picture of the Savior on the outside of our classroom door. Before I let my little 6 year olds into the classroom, I ask them to enter one at a time, reverently, and then the LAST in line gets to "invite" the Savior into our classroom to join us. I then tape the picture up on the wall where the Savior can see us. This has added a huge change in the reverence in our classroom. The children feel special that THEY got to invite Him in to be with US. (Idea by Nanci Jarman / ga01112008)

    I'm taking a break so I can enjoy the holidays with my family. The ppt for the first lesson should be posted before the beginning of the year. Merry Christmas!

    Bless your heart Ericka
    My Primary 4 children just love your Power Point lessons.

    Thank you ever so much for all you do - for all of us.

    Rich blessings for you and your family this Christmas season.

    Ericka, we are so appreciative of all your hard work on the power point lessons. we would love to send you a little christmas gift. can you email me your address. thanks

    My wife and I made "Scripture Study Notebooks" for the class. each week we pass out the valiant newsletters, scripture cards, AofF cards, and the like. We passed out some definitions that are often misunderstood by members for the notebook, and when we find a word the students do not understand we write it in the book and find an answer. A couple of parents have commented that their daughters have taught them some things from class in FHE that caught the parents off guard but were factually scriptural. You Know what I mean.

    I'm relatively new to Sugar Doodle and I love Erica Covalt's Power Point presentations. I made my own until discovering Erica's. They are great. Is there one for lesson 9 for the Book of Mormon (Book 4) for the Primary (Enos)?

    Last year I used Erica's PP lessons on occasion with an older class. The variety worked well with them.

    This year I have the 8-9 year olds and have used a modified version of the PP lesson each time. One of my students has autism, and this format encourages his participation. Although a non-reader, he can parrot my reading and identify simple ideas because of the pictures.

    I've seen a difference in how the other members of the class view/treat this boy. Originally they were uncomfortable with him (how were they to react to his behavior, his inability to perform some tasks, etc)and now he is simply a member of the group. The kids are learning how they can re-word or otherwise adjust lesson content so he is included. I appreciate that Erica's lessons have aided in accomplishing those things.

  • Ericka Covalt

    Thank you, Vicki! Reading your comment really means a lot! Helping kids who typically have a hard time participating in traditional lessons is a big reason why I make the powerpoints. I enjoy finding ways to make them visually appealing to help them absorb the message in more than one way.

    Hi teachers, I wanted to give you a heads up that I am being released from my teaching calling. I am almost done with the powerpoint for this lesson and hope to do the next one. I have enjoyed making powerpoints to use in my class and sharing them here for others to use for almost four years now. I am sure there are others who will step in to share their talent. If anyone is willing to make and share powerpoints and/or newsletters here I would be happy to share links and some of stuff I have. I can be reached at kitchenparamedic@yahoo.com. Warmly, Ericka

    I am willing to try to fill the void left by Erica leaving the primary. I can't seem to get my files into SD. Please advise how I can do this. Thank you

  • Ericka Covalt

    Thanks!!!!! There is a submit tab at the top of the page. You'll need to send the file to Melanie as an attachment. She is the owner of Sugardoodle and will upload it to the site for you.

    If anyone could make a "Newsletter" for Lesson 21, "The Zoramites and the Rameumptom," it would be appreciated. This is the lesson that I am teaching for the Sunday of 6/10/2012. I, unfortunately, do not have the skills. Thank you.

  • Janice P.

    A "big" thank you to Debra Nelson, Nicole Goeckeritz, and Tasha Fuller for their help with Lesson 21. The power point presentation, newsletter, and handout were absolutely wonderful! You all are an answer to a prayer! I hope you will continue to share your talents with us, not so talented, Primary teachers. :-)

    Hi David, I have been using you wonderful ppt. For the last several months. You are greatly appreciated. Will you be creating ppt.s for 2013 church history?

  • Rebecca Baker

    I have not been able to find the Valient Newsletters that my class so dearly loves under the lesson helps. Today I somehow got a pop-up that showed the one for last week. Can you tell me where to find them? Thanks so much.

    Thank you David Hill for taking the time to do the power point presentations! I believe it adds so much more to the lesson. I know my kids enjoy them. They don't have to listen to me talk the whole time, and for some I am boring!! :zzz lol!! Thanks again!~

  • Charlotte  - Primary 4-Lesson 47-The Priesthood can bless our l

    It saddens me - greatly - to see this last lesson on "The Priesthood can Bless Our Lives" to be missing and not available.
    One of the most important lessons of our church, and it is not here.

    Our Valiant newsletter for Primary 4 is also no longer available, which is also a quite sad.

    The newsletter is a very important part of each lesson, and the children love being able to work them. It greatly helps to reinforce the powerpoint lesson they just watched.

    In spite of inquiring as to where they are, no response has ever been noticed.

    Our ward has needed to go elsewhere for lesson helps, since they are not available here any longer.

    I'd like to thank David very much for providing great powerpoints for us.

    Merry Christmas to all.

  • Angelene  - HELP

    I have completely finished my lessons for my class and I have to prepare a lesson for tomorrow. Any ideas on what I should do. Not sure how I made it through all the lessons. I am sure one or two were missed. I have not been teaching this primary class all year so I don't know for sure what lessons were missed. What can I do for tomorrow. Any ideas would be great. Thanks

  • Saundra  - Valiant Newsletters

    I, too, have missed the Valiant Newsletters these past few months. I love having them for my lessons. I wish I were more literate in publisher programs to provide one. :(

  • Arlene

    I love the Valiant newsletters and so do the kids I teach. I hope they'll continue this year. I will be teaching the priesthood lesson (#47) first, as directed by our primary presidency. I wish I had a handout for that. I'm going to make folders for each of the kids so when they get a handout they can take it home and put it in their folder.
