(Friend April 2003 suggestion # 4)
Divide the Primary into groups and have each group locate and read one of the following stories:
Matthew 25:1–13 (parable of the 10 Virgins)
Luke 15:11–32 (parable of the Prodigal Son)
Luke 17:11–19 (the 10 Lepers)
Luke 10:25–37 (parable of the Good Samaritan)
Matthew 7:24–27 (parable of the Wise Man and the Foolish Man).
Using simple props or name tags, have each group dramatize its story.
Remember that "the Savior should not be portrayed by children in dramatization except in a nativity scene" (Church Handbook of Instructions, Book 2: Priesthood and Auxiliary Leaders, 279).
At the conclusion of the story, have the group introduce the characters.
Ask the rest of the Primary children to indicate whether or not the character made a good choice by having each child smile or frown or hold up a card with a smile on one side and a frown on the other, or use other culturally appropriate actions.
Discuss what the character could have done to make better choices.
Have the group tell how the story applies to the children's lives and how they can make correct choices daily.
Between stories, sing songs such as:
"Choose the Right Way" (pp. 160–161),
"I Will Follow God's Plan" (pp. 164–165),
"Nephi's Courage" (pp. 120–121),
"I'm Trying to Be like Jesus" (pp. 78–79),
"Dare to Do Right" (p. 158).
Challenge the children to choose the right during the week.
