Primary was great yesterday!  We are learning about Joseph and his experiences translating the BofM. It is more than just teaching a lesson and hope the kids remember something.  I love bringing history to life.  I will ask the kids to imagine what the times were like back then.  For instance, they know the name Oliver Cowdery but did not know who he really was.  So we talk about what school was like back then, so they can understand how it was different from what they are used to, and then how Oliver was the only school teacher to teach all the kids, not individual classes for each grade and how that school teacher would board with local families.  Boarding with Joseph's parents is how he became acquainted with Joseph's work and eventually his scribe.  I also have one of the kids who reads well, read part of the Book of Mormon where it talks of the importance of baptism.  She pretended to be Joseph, translating so had to read with pauses (and she did a great job). The other kids were the scribes, pretending to write what was translated. Then we talked about how Joseph and Oliver felt and how they realized that they too needed baptism. 
Each week we bring part of the lesson to life.  The kids are loving it and it helps them actually 'live' part of the history instead of just hearing about it.  Primary teachers...help your kids learn history from a different perspective, let them live it!!
I hope this helps someone.

I love being able to share in here! I was just called to be the Valiant Teacher and am loving it.  I am also the Young Men's counselor so teach the boys in that hour.  I have worked with the Primary from a leadership position, Branch President and High Council, but now I get to be a part of it.  You Sisters are a blessed group of people and I am happy to blend in!

Oleksii Victory, I just removed your last post. It seems that you do not understand the rules of the community.  This is the third time you have been asked NOT to post affiliate links.  I am suggesting to Mike that you be removed from the group for NOT abiding by the rules.  Sorry, but if you will not abide by the rules you cannot remain in the group.

Dear Sisters, I have a question for the members of this group. I have written an LDS goal-setting life planning program for members of the Church. The question is, what do you think as far as having gospel-oriented material that teaches goal-setting and life planning?  Do you think it is necessary or appropriate?  Or do you think that it is something that Mormons do not need? This is the response that I received from Deseret Book: "(DB) feels that using the church, Faith, Patriarchal blessings and such for goal setting and selling it through a seminar would not be something we could advertise."  I would really like input from real members.  What do you think about that?  Deseret Book is NOT directly related or promoted by the Church itself.  The church is a not-for-profit organization and Deseret Book IS a for profit corporation.  It is not directed by Church Headquarters.  Any seminar that I may do would NOT be done in any church facility simply because that is not allowed.  I am just surprised that even though I will pay for advertising in means such as LDS Living, they feel it is not something they can allow in there material.  What do you think?
