I will be
reverent, dress modestly, and speak kindly to be worthy to enter the temple
CSMP outline 2008, suggestion for June week 1
Use stations to explain how we prepare for the temple. (See “Stations,”TNGC, 179.) Divide the children in three groups to rotate through the stations.
Ask, “What is reverence?”
Sing “Reverence Is Love” (CS, 31).
Write reverent and irreverent actions on cards and place them upside down.
Have the children select a card. Discuss the action. Have each child complete the sentence, “I will be reverent by ______________.”
Teach the children about dressing modestly by using an example, quotation, poem, or story.
Sing “The Lord Gave Me a Temple” (CS, 153).
Have each child complete the sentence, “I will be modest by _____________.”
Speak Kindly Station:
Help the children understand the sacredness of the names of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and that we should speak reverently about Them. We should also speak with respect and kindness to and about family, teachers, and friends.
List words that we might use when talking to them.
Have each child complete the sentence, “I will speak kindly by using the words ____________.”
