Gospel Learning On Your Lap

May Week 4: When I take the sacrament, I renew my baptismal covenants.

This weeks minit book is also an extention of sharing time.  It is suggested to “Make wordstrips with phrases from the sacrament prayers that explain what we promise when we take the sacrament and what Heavenly Father promises us (see Doctrine and Covenants 20:77, 79).”  After reading the prayers, have the children stand in the correct order with their word strips. I have made the suggested wordstrips into cursive tracing strips.  If you laminate the wordstrips first, your child had a little “white board” to work with and can practice over and over with a dry ease marker.  The other option would be to just do it once with a pencil and call it good.  Tip:  if you don’t have a laminator, just cover the paper with packing tape or contact paper.

Just a note:  I have 3 preschoolers so obviously my brain and creativity are geared toward their ages, but I’m trying to think outside of my little box.  I really want to include all Primary age children with these activities.  I’m leaving a lot up to you as a parent though because you know best how to make these minit books more or less challenging to accommodate your child’s skill level.  Any suggestions or requests are greatly appreciated!

Does the little blue bubble on the pocket look like a gumball?  That’s what I was going for!

I hope this has been a fun lapbook for your children.  I believe in these principles and am thankful for their guidance in my life.

May Week 3: The Holy Ghost can help me.

This week’s lapbook minit book is an extension of sharing time.  The Outline suggests to play a matching game as a large group.  This matching game is just for one, or two, or three, or more!  Look carefuly at the two images below.  You will need to download and print both.  The cards are the same, but one has a pocket to store the cards and the other has clip art.  Use the clip art to decorate bare spots or cover mistakes.  I recommend printing these on CARDSTOCK .  Once you have cut out all of the squares, make double sided cards by gluing a CTR shield on to the back of each phrase card.  I put some little pictures on each phrase to help pre-readers play.  What do you think?  Does a blanket remind you of the comforter?

May Week 2: When I am baptized and confirmed, I am following Jesus’s example.

“Mini-books?”, “Minit books?” I thought these little books filled with information and glued into a file folder creating a lapbook were called mini-books because they are mini.  I guess I need to take a closer look at the fuzzy screen.  I now see that they are referred to as minit books.  That makes sense too because they take a “minit” to review and make.  These little mini-minit books contain a short summary of principles being taught or a reminder of important information.

Here is the minit book for Week 2.  This is a “3 flap flip flap book”.  It has the Fourth Article of Faith broken into phases.  Anticipating what phrase comes next, helps people memorize things.  Just cut out the two pieces.  Glue the last phrase to the center, then fold it so it unfolds in order.    For pre-readers you can draw little pictures on each flap to help them remember what each phrase is about.    Click on the image to download from 4Shared.4th article of faith copy
