Lesson 14 The Word of Wisdom

CTR B Lesson 14 The Word of Wisdom

This is a great lesson to come back to after baby, because frankly, all I want to eat is Junk, junk, junk!  Anyone else have the problem while nursing?  Anyway…I’m doing good and am happy to be back.  Starting slow and steady.  Now…the lesson

 

Lesson 14 The Word of Wisdom Helps Outline:

Here’s what you’ll find in this post:

  1. Happy Face/Sad Face activity
  2. Happy Face handout (3 options for this one)
  3. Jumping Food game idea

 

1. Happy Face/Sad Face activity

I’ve made the activity described in the manual.  Simply cut out the happy and sad faces (and their mouths) and the food.  (‘ve placed the food and bad items on a little grid for easy slicing–you’ll get little food cards when you’re done cutting) Bad things go in the sad face, good things go in the happy face.  You can put these faces on a bag if you like, a box, or popsicle sticks.  OR HOLD THE SAD ONE OVER THE GARBAGE SO THE BAD THINGS ARE THROWN AWAY!!

FACES-  THIS IS just a preview, below you will find a PDF link.

2. Happy Face Handout

You can keep this idea simple or have a little more fun.  Here’s a preview of the Face i’ve created for kids to take home:

Lesson 14 The Word of Wisdom

Simple Idea: cut out, kids color, done!

3 Per Page PDF of above face: HappyFacePrintable3perPage

Fancier Ideas: 

I put together this masterpiece diagram to help you see my other ideas for this face.  Both of these would use a smile for each child and some of the food cards that were used in the first lesson idea.  Here we go.  (I’m trying to see if this explanation will save me time over making movies)

To see the diagram bigger, just click on it!

NOTE! For the cup idea, you may need to copy my smile face and resize it on your own to accommodate your cup if you’re a stickler about it fitting perfectly. 

3. Jumping Food Game Idea

Have the kids stand up.  Call out or hold up a food item.  If it is a healthy item the kids should be able to jump very high and fast.  If it is a poor choice (pounds of chocolate…NOTE TO SELF) then they will barely move, act sluggish.  It is a test of sorts to see if they know which foods are healthy and which are not.  If they jump up for candy, have them try again!  The purpose of this game is to reiterate that good foods sustain us, help us JUMP, while poor foods make us drag, feel sluggish!

    I am so glad you are back! Yes junk food is so tempting during nursing…and I can’t get enough of it.

      Yay! I’m not the only one. I gotta be careful. If I continue this way, they’ll have to roll me into primary!

    I am so thankful you are back and hope that all went well for you and your family these past few months. This is my first Primary calling in a long time (4 year olds) and I use your ideas! P.S. I saw a list online of primary activity songs with movement but can’t find them now ): any ideas?

      Glad to be back. Hmm I’m not familiar with that list. Did you google “Primary songs with movement”?

    Hi Christina: So glad you’re back!! It’s great to see that everything is well with you and your beautiful little family. Remember to take it easy and take care. Thanks for all you fantastic ideas that I am so excited to use to help these little guys prepare for baptism.

      Take it easy, great advice. I have a hard time with that one, especially being done with pregnancy, I sort of want to jump around and not stop (I CAN MOVE!!!)

    So glad you and baby are doing well and that you are back! I’ve missed your amazing lesson helps! ( I actually started looking at your stuff from last year to get ideas that correlated with this years lesson topics because I missed them so much! 🙂 )

    When I am nursing I crave junk food like crazy, and trail mix for some reason. I never eat it except when I’m nursing and then I go through several (Costco size!) bags! It must be our bodies craving extra calories that are easy to get! 🙂 I’m having a baby in less than 2 weeks so I better go get me some trail mix! 😉

      Glad to be back. 2 weeeeksss ahhhhh! That last two weeks is absolute torture for me. I sort of lose it, for real. Best of luck to you. Trail mix! great idea! And I’m glad I’m not alone with the junk food cravings 😉

    Welcome back!! This makes my Saturday ..I went to sugar doodle to get ready for this lesson, we had a satellite conf last week. So looking at Sugardoodle which I do LOVE I saw one of the suggested links were these adorable puppets for kids to feed the puppet,etc and make their own puppet. But it involves sewing which I do not do! (unless I could ask friends to make them for me!). And then I smiled as I saw your link at the bottom..I thought it was probably from a few years ago.
    So glad you are ok, hope your baby is ok..and thanks for putting up your page which is at my level of what I can do! I struggle w/the 6-7 old class, the primary presidency visits regularly to help me, I have one sweet child who no longer wants to come to my class as it is too noisy (and I can’t get things under control at times)..The kids will love the jumping game idea…
    Anyway..thank you so much! 🙂

      Those challenging kids…I’ve had a few. So nice to be back, and all the best to you. Don’t beat yourself up about primary. Some weeks go great, others do not. It’s ok, you showed up, right???

    Christina, it was like manna from heaven when I saw that you were back on your “Primary Helps” website. You were greatly missed as you can tell, but more importantly, everyone on your blog are so excited for the newest addition to your family! Just remember to rest when your body and the spirit directs.
    Thanks for the notation about trail mix mix Audrey. I think I’ll have the children make small snack size bags (no nuts due to allergies) of fruit, raisins & m&ms for a class handout treat.
    What a wonderful jumping game 🙂 So blessed to have your inspired teaching helps back — but remember not to over-extend yourself!
