Review theme/songs
(Friend Aug 2004, suggestion # 4)

To reinforce the principles and songs taught during the year and to prepare the children for the children's sacrament meeting presentation, place a copy of "The Family: A Proclamation to the World" in the center of the board.

On the left side, write Proclamation Principles,and underneath place pictures from the GAK or the Primary Visual Aids Cutouts that remind us of principles found in the proclamation ~ for example:

On the right side, write Primary Songs and list the songs from the Outline for Sharing Time and the Children's Sacrament Meeting Presentation that your Primary has been learning.

On a copy of the proclamation, underline specific principles and make a copy for each child. Ssuggested principles:

  1. "Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents,"

  2. "Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness,"

  3. "In the premortal realm, spirit sons and daughters knew and worshiped God as their Eternal Father and accepted His plan,"

  4. "Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ,"

  5. "Successful . . . families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, [and] forgiveness,"

  6. "The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave"

Prepare a cube with one of the following pictures on each side:

Use drawings made by the children or from the Primary Visual Aids Cutouts.

Show the cube, and tell the children that when you hold it up during the song, they are to sing either:

Roll the cube and sing.

Bear testimony of the principles taught in the songs and that our families are strengthened when we live the gospel.
