    When we have a fifth week, we have an all singing time week with no sharing time lesson. In July, we are having a pioneer themed music time on the 22nd. Then we will do the fourth week lesson on the 29th of the month.

  • Rachel Crosby

    We are borrowing one of August's lessons because we have Stake Conference that month.

  • Amy Rice

    We have been having issues with reverence and the way we act in the church building. So we are having a guest come and talk about why it is so important that we treat the church building with respect, even if it is not Sunday.

  • Jill wl

    We are having the Young Men and Young Women come into Primary during the third hour. We are sending our teachers to Relief Society and Priesthood. The presidency and music are staying behind. We will be doing a gospel instruction focused on teacher appreciation. Each class will make a thank you item for their teacher. We have invited the teachers back to Primary at the end and we will present the teachers the class project and sing a song to them.

  • KatieJ

    We ask a class to do a class presentation when there's a 5th week- just anything they've learned in class that they would like to share, we ask them to tie it into the monthly theme if possible.

  • Shreann Stirland

    We are going to add a pioneer day lesson the Sunday before the 24th and do the last lesson on the fifth Sunday.

  • Maryann N

    Because we are a new presidency and have over 100 children, learning the children's names has been difficult. I would love to have a sharing time somehow devoted to learning the children's names. Does anyone have good ideas of ways we could do this?

  • Hermana N

    We are going to use the 5th Sunday in July as our middle of the year "see how much you remember" game show...... We are going to combine singing time and sharing time and practice all 8 songs we have learned up to this point for the primary presentation..... making it a "jeopardy" theme where I am going to put clues up on the board that they have to flip over and will have an answer and then they have to give me the song it is about in a question. Example: Nephi's Brothers did not think that it would float. --- What is the boat in Nephi's Courage"..... Then we will sing that song. Everyone will get a treat at the end for "choosing the right" song.

  • Heather Spangler

    We have asked the YW to come in and teach a combined sharing time the 3rd hour while we have a teacher inservice for 20 minutes. We choose the modesty lesson from June (we had stake conference), and figured it was an important part of YW/YM standards (the primary children will soon be part of the youth program!) One YW will organize it and use it for a personal progress project. There were a lot of negative comments last month about that lesson, but it is very important part of the gospel and I believe in teaching the standards young so there is less arguing when it can be a real issue as teens.

  • Stephanie Reed

    Through out the year we have been putting pennies in a jar: one per child who brought their scriptures, and one per child who listened to their Primary CD with the songs we are learning for the year. We will "use the pennies" to buy Books of Mormons. During Sharing Time the kids will write their testimonies or draw a picture. We will send these in the Books of Mormon to missionaries that are serving from our ward.

  • Kyla Pew

    We are using the 4th Sunday to have a Primary Olympics! We will review the songs we've learned, compete in reverence activities, and use our bishopric, teachers, and missionaries as judges! Each child will receive a gold medal (chocolate coin glued to ribbon)

  • hejhog100

    We are going to take a pioneer trek around the church. We are having teachers dress up as pioneers and read the journal entries from important places along the trail. We are also going to pick berries (craisins in bags) from a bush, and reach into a cardboard cow to get beef jerky. We just followed the outline of "important" places along the trail from the lds.org website.

  • Athena H

    We'll be having a review/culmination of the 8 "Gospel Principles" that we've been studying in Sharing time during June and July. The review will be a concentration/matching game of some sort. We're just not sure if our primary children have understood what we've been teaching them as a whole over the last couple months and want to tie it up and together somehow.

  • Jeanne Thornton

    We used the Fasting and Prayer theme two weeks in a row. Could also be used for the last Sunday. I told the story of Saving the Wheat April 2009 Ensign by Marianne Dahl Johnson. I had pictures of a gristmill, crickets, and the seagulls and crickets. I also showed them wheat and flour after if was ground during the story and hit upson the point they could not let one kernal drop. I made little Ship's Bisquits by Hilary M Hendricks found on the LDS.org website. Rolled them out and cut them with a small round cookie cutter. They are not great, but it was humbling to the children to taste what a bisquit was like that the pioneer children ate, made from flour water and salt.

  • Mari7

    We never have any time to learn articles of faith. So we used one of the weeks in July to memorize #12--which is our Article of Faith for the month of July.

  • Kellie

    Our tentative plan is to have all of our teachers teach the first hour. We often have a special RS/P meeting on the 5th and we thought we'd send all of our teachers to that. Then we'll split the primary and have our music people and one member of the presidency do music time. The other half we'll divide up, unless we have access to a big room and we will have the primary children decorate thank you cards for their teachers and write them a nice note. We also hope to have cards for our scout, activity day, music, and nursery leaders. This will go with the kindness sharingtime. We'll either have the teachers come back for the last few minutes so they can have their cards then, or we'll save them for the next week.

  • Erin Horn

    We decided to have our 5th week be our first just for this month. We had a Guest speaker be Captain Moroni! We had him prepare to teach the children about the Title of Liberty, since this month we celebrate our freedom. He came in and did such a wonderful job!

    After talking about the Title of Liberty and how it came to be and how life was, he asked the children if they would join his army and defend and protect their freedoms, and to always choose the right. All the children raised their hands with such excitement! It was So Neat to see how Excited they all were!

    We then had the jr primary make their own "Title of Liberty" by using a straw and some paper. They wrote down what was most important to them and what they are willing to defend and protect. They Loved It! For the activity part for the senior primary we had them look up their scriptures and do a fill in the blank paper. Then he invited them to join his army as well and be defenders.

  • Jill B

    We are doing a pioneer themed sharing time. We are having a "handcart" where the children will see examples of things the pioneers had to take with them and things they had to leave behind. We will go over working hard and the trials the pioneers had to go through.

  • Heather Wiseman

    We are also do a music and Gospel principles review. We'll focus mainly on working on some of the more difficult songs for the children.

  • Nancy Morrison

    We have a very high number of military families in our ward. We are using our 5th Sunday's as our military/missionary Sunday's. We are sending our teachers to the combined 3rd hour class for the Priesthood and RS. The Primary Presidency is helping the children create cards and pictures to send to the members of our ward who are deployed or missionaries who are serving to let them know we are thankful for what they are doing, that we love them, and are thinking about them.

  • Cheryl Poulter

    We have struggled with reverence in our ward too. We will be introducing our new Reverence Child reward system as well as reviewing July's topics. We have decided (with approval from the Bishop) to reward 2 children in Jr & 2 from Sr Primary as the "Reverent Child" & we will give those children a coupon to go to the Bishop & get a prize (we provide him with a treasure box of prizes). I went to Vista Print & made up business cards that have a cute monkey hanging from a branch. The words say, "I didn't Monkey around". "I show love to my Heavenly Father, when I am Reverent". We hope that we will be spending less time correcting & more time catching them being reverent. :-)

    I wanted to do something fun and I'm excited for the Olympics so that's where I got the idea. I'm doing a review of what we've learned so far this year with a Olympic theme game. I have a swimmer for each class and I'll draw a swimming pool with lanes and then each class will race and see how many laps they get by answering questions. Each class will have something to write on and they will all write their answer on the paper and then hold it up and whoever gets it right their swimmer will get to move forward. This way they are all racing and answering at the same time and I think it will help with the volume control. Also I plan on dividing the oldest class to be on the younger classes teams.

    I LOVE THIS IDEA!! :) do you have review questions already to accompany? If so I'd LOVE to use them! Thanks!

  • Janet Houston Potts

    I'm going to use the 5th Sunday to have a "reverse" quiz. Our primary is small so I'll divide primary into 2 teams,name them and start the quiz at 20 the first team that gets to zero wins. It helps you check on what the children have learned in class and how well they know the songs for the presentation. I also include a scripture quiz in it. Our Children just love it and ask every week can we have one.

  • Janet Houston Potts

    Im using the 5th Sunday to have a "catch up reverse" quiz. our primary is small so i divide the children up in two groups - using all age groups in each team. We put the no.20 up on the board and whomever gets to zero first "wins". Questions are asked about previous sharing times, articles of faith already learned, songs from the primary prersentation, scriptur chase etc. The children love it!

  • moreblack

    I would like to do a review of June and July since both months deal with Gospel Principals, but would like some review questions, Anyone have some ideas?

  • kassie t

    We are also planning on having an Olympic themed sharing time. There have been a couple previous posts about an Olympic theme sharing time... We are doing CTR Olympics and are having a game (kind of like candy land) focusing on the Gospel Principles we have talked about over the last two months. At the end of the game will be a podium... 1st, 2nd, 3rd place and relate it to the kingdoms and how if we follow the gospel principles we will be able to receive our "Gold Medal" and live in the Celestial Kingdom... Gold Medal will be a gold coin on ribbon like Kyla Pew had mentioned.

    Do you have the review questions we might be able to utilize? :) Just a lot going on right now so if I can use what has already been created that would be great!!

    I am doing a little Olympic theme. I want to compare how strong the athletes are to Daniel, Shadrach and Mesach and the 2,000 stripling warriors. How they were physically strong, but spiritually strong. Then we will go over My Gospel Principles how we can be spiritually and physically strong like them. Each kid will get a copy of My Gospel Princicples. The last five minutes I will tie in a game from My Gospel Principles. (i.e. dress modestly would be a race to put on a missionary shirt.)

    I love your idea! I am just feeling dumb...what is "My Gospel Principles"? Is it a pamphlet, like "For the Strength of the Youth"?

  • Cheryl Hansen

    I will also be reviewing the Gospel Principles we talked about during June and July, as well as the songs we will use in our program. Here is a link to the questions I have. I will make it a game using fill in the blanks, T/F, and multiple choice.
