Week 2: Jesus’s disciples were blessed by choosing the right.

On to minibooks for week 2 of the LDS Primary Sharing Time theme of 2012 .  Don’t forget to print the other elements if you are just joining us.

During sharing time, your children may have heard the stories of Jesus’s disciples and how they chose the right.  They may have learned about Mary (Luke 10:38–42), Peter and Andrew (Matthew 4:18–20), or Paul (Acts 9:1–9, 17–20).  They may have even brought home a puppet and are anxious to tell you all about it.  After they do, put the  puppet in a pocket glued into the  lapbook and bring it back out for  a retelling at FHE.

If no one came home with a cute stick puppet, you can print  out a woman here or a male here  and color it at your own FHE about Jesus’s disciples choosing the right.

Also for fun, I made a little math fishing game.  All of the instructions are included on the printout, but here’s what you’ll be doing:  Cut out the pocket and fish along the lines.  Put a paper clip over the mouth of each fish.  Hot glue some string to a Popsicle stick and add a magnet on the other end of the string to make a little fishing pole.  Younger kids can “fish” a fish and count the squares.  Older kids can “fish” two fish and practice basic math skills.  I recommend using a hot glue gun to glue the pocket.  It might be a little tight fitting all of the fish and the fishing pole into the pocket.  I’m sure your stick puppets would make room for a little “pole”.
