Book of Mormon Stories
Today for my lesson I made my own golden plates. I had some gold spray paint, card stock and a little bit of wire.
I am teaching the children verses 1, 5, 6, 7 and 8. For the last few weeks we have been talking about the stories that go along with the verses. I put pictures up from the gospel art kit (the one in the blue box) on the board and did a quick review of each story.
In junior primary I had a child come up and look at what was written on my gold pates. On my plates I had written the book and chapter they could find the story that we were learning about. I then had them guess which picture went with the book and chapter. We checked by looking at the back of the picture which had the book and chapter on it. They loved coming up and flipping though my gold plates. When a match was made we would sing that verse.
When I did it in senior primary I had them look up the chapter and read the chapter heading to see what the chapter was about and then they matched it to the picture. Then we sang the verse.
I am a wife and mother of three. I graduated collage with a degree in teaching and an emphasis in music. I am currently teaching music to preschoolers and at the elementary level. I love teaching my children, as well as, other children about music.I am also the ward music director and primary music leader. Being the primary music director was one of the very first callings I received, at 17 years old. I know that this will not be the last time that I am called to teach primary music, so I like to make things for primary that I can use over and over again. I love crafting, scrapbooking and sewing. I have also started a craft shop on Etsy called Handcrafting Harmony. I make quiet books, freezer pop cozies, marble mazes and much more. I think there is something wonderful about creating something and it is such a great source of therapy to me. So I love family, kids, music, teaching and crafting.
The purpose of this blog is to give other fellow music directors ideas for singing time and for those crafters out there to see some of the things that I enjoy making.
