Stand For The Right Review!!

The kids learned the song so well last week that I'm planning on reviewing just one more week and then continuing to learn our "Books of the Book of Mormon" and "Latter-Day Prophets" songs.  So here's my plan and once again because I  can't seem to get myself in gear this week I'm using a lot of all of your amazing ideas and just tweaking them a bit!  I love love love that everyone is so creative and so sharing, it makes my calling so much easier when I'm having a "can't think straight" week!

I'm going to start by reminding the kids that we have a living prophet today that speaks to us.  And the words he speaks are what Jesus and Heavenly Father would tell us if they were here on earth!  I will tell them some of the great things that our prophet Thomas S. Monson has told us.
  • Stand for the Right, even if you stand alone.
  • “Children, let your parents know you love them. Let them know how much you appreciate all they have done and continue to do for you.”
  • “Don’t be afraid to walk out of a movie, turn off a television set, or change a radio station if what’s being presented does not meet your Heavenly Father’s standards.”
Someone has collected an awesome set of quotes here.  Plus I may use the idea on that link for another week, it's pretty sweet!

So I'm going to print out this "leg cube" and just sing the song through like 3 times to make sure they remember what it it about.  I always post or hold up my visuals for those who really learn visually too.  After reviewing it a little I am going to do the Life Size Tic-Tac-Toe.  I will probably just set up chairs as the grid instead of having them stand in the square since they tend to get restless when standing by each other too long (at least my primary kids do. . .you may all have perfectly behaved angels!!).  It's going to be a fun Sunday!!!

Always remember to infuse a little movement and a little fun and I've learned that you can never expect children to sit perfectly still, they have to move, rarely can a child sit all through primary without being a bit fidgety.  I just remember that if I can get them to connect with me even once that I've passed along a bit of my testimony to them.   Good Luck!!!

  1. So can you explain to me the game of the Life sized tic tac toe? I understand that the actual kids are the pawns, sitting on chairs arranged into the 9 different spots. But how do you have them choose who gets to go where? And who's turn it is? My email is If you could email with the details I'd really appreciate it. I've loved coming to your blog for ideas and help! Thanks!
