My Gospel Standards
Some from Friend and some from a leadership meeting
(shared by Lena)

Post a My Gospel Standards chart, or each individual standard (Friend, Feb. 1997, p. 9).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Assemble pictures or objects that illustrate each Gospel Standard.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ask questions to help them explain something about their own experience with that standard.
Read the whole Gospel Standard as each match is made.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Have the children draw a picture or an object from a bag/box, and match it to the appropriate standard. Possible objects:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  1. Put an action to each of the Gospel standards (I manipulated some action pictures up and drew some if anyone is interested that go with the old GS)
  2. Have children sit in semi circle.
  3. Give the children each a list of the GS.
  4. Give each of the children an action (in order as you go around) As you assign that child a action say fully the GS(Gospel Standard) as it reinforces it in their minds.  Then once every one has an action (just going on memory I think there are 11 GS so you may have to do some creative thinking for the extra children)
  5. Start at the first child have him/her do their action (say fully again that GS)
  6. Then have that child in order do the actions of the child next to them and the child next to them and so on to the last child. Once again saying the GS with the action.
  7. Then choose someone else to do the actions of the children starting at the first child to the last , and then maybe another child to do the same.
  8. Then have the children stand and move to a totally different place.
  9. Choose a child and have them name the action from the first child in the new line and so on around the circle.  Again with each GS you’d say the GS fully.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Make 12 cards.  The 12th having just the words “My Gospel Standards” then make another set.
Put the words or a picture to each GS on one side of the card and Nothing on the other side With each set, Place cards face down and randomly in a circle like clock numbers. A distance from each other.
Put children into 2 groups.  Time children (3 minutes) to put GS in order with the “My Gospel Standards” at the top. See how well the remembered
