Hello there! It’s time again for a new letter of the week for the Walk Beside Me LDS Preschool Curriculum! This week’s focus is F is for Families are Forever!
What a great thing for our young children to learn in preschool, and who better to teach it them than you?
I think my favorite worksheet in this packet would have to be the temple coloring page. There are 4 temples to color, and your child can tell you which temple is your favorite! This would be a great week to take a Family Home Evening out to your nearest temple and take some family and individual photos.
How precious would it be to present your child with a picture of your family with a caption that say “My family is forever!” This April general conference, our prophet Thomas S. Monson gave a wonderful talk on the temple. He quoted Spencer W. Kimball, who said:
“It would be a fine thing if … parents would have in every bedroom in their house a picture of the temple so [their children] from the time [they are] infant[s] could look at the picture every day [until] it becomes a part of [their lives]. When [they reach] the age that [they need] to make [the] very important decision [concerning going to the temple], it will have already been made.”
Another fun family home evening idea would be to discuss the Proclamation to the World, and how Heavenly Father has created His plan so we can always live together as a family. (How beautiful would that lesson be while on the temple grounds?)
The fun focus of the week is our five senses. There are some great games listed on the weekly schedule that will encourage your child to use and explore each of his or her senses! Don’t forget to download the weekly schedule to get the most out of this curriculum. I provide this curriculum free of charge, but do ask that you check out my Walk Beside Me Store, as purchases from the store benefit the continuation of the site. It’s got some great resources to set up your LDS preschool!
What do you think of the F is for Families are Forever packet? Any suggestions, ideas, errors? What would you like to see with future packets?
