(CSMP 2005 April suggestion # 1)
Display a picture of a home.
Divide the children into groups and give each group a piece of paper and a picture of a family member, such as a parent, grandparent, child, or baby.
Have each group list some of the ways the family member they were given contributes to the family. Then have the groups take turns acting out some of the ways their family member contributes, while the rest of the children guess which family member it is.
Sing a song about that family member, such as:
“Mother Dear” (CS, 206).
Display the pictures and lists by the home.
Sing Primary songs about home.
For older children, read
sentences 4 and 5 of paragraph 7 of the
Divide the children into groups and give each group a principle from sentence 5.
Have them find and sing a song from the CS that teaches the principle and then share how they can livethat principle in their families.
