Walk Beside Me LDS Preschool Curriculum: H is for Helaman

H is for Helaman Printables

Okay, I’m not sure what my problem has been this week. But the newest addition to my LDS preschool curriculum, Walk Beside Me: H is for Helaman” is finally here and ready to go! Kids just love the story of Helaman’s Army, but boys especially love it. It would be so much fun to do a family home evening activity to introduce your preschool topic for the week. Boys + cardboard + tin foil = 1 sword + 1 unforgettable FHE!
(Did that make sense? Because I’m super bad at math.) 

This week incorporates the beautiful Janice Kapp Perry song, “We’ll Bring the World His Truth,” to remind us that we too, can be members of God’s army! We don’t need swords to fight for God, we need to be missionaries throughout our lives! What a powerful message to learn at such a young age. A great way to start in on this topic is by referring to the Church’s media library. Check out this video of Helaman and the 2,000 Young Warriors.

For the secular focus of the week, I’ve chosen H is for Hygiene. As recently potty trained individuals, preschool is a great time to review and master handwashing concepts! In the LDS Preschool Schedule, I’ve linked you to some great activites, including a fun action poem on washing your hands. For the sensory bin, I highly recommend a bin with water, some soap, and a towel. Kids love playing in water, and doing so right after learning about hand washing will definitely reinforce those concepts! Just keep in mind, kids can drown in a mere inch of water… so watch them. Or else! :)

Don’t forget to check out the Walk Beside Me Preschool Store. Your purchases help finance this operation. :)

    Thanks again!! I love them.

    Thank you so much! This is AWESOME. We’re taking some of these pages and putting them in sheet protectors to do with a dry erase marker/crayon during sacrament.

    • What a great idea. I definitely did the sheet protector thing until I was given a free laminator from a guy I met at the school surplus sale (I swear, I’ve gotten the best stuff from people I’ve met there!), but the sheet protector thing works GREAT. Even better is that you only need the sheet protectors on the packet you’re currently working on!

    • I would love any feedback you have, or any feedback your kids give you on the packets. I really want this to be fun and educational for your kids!

    Thanks so MUCH for sharing these packets! I am excited to print them out for my little ones! I get caught so caught up sometimes in the older kids lessons that the little ones have nothing to do…this will be a great resource for us. I posted a thank-you on my blog and added your button as well. Thanks again for sharing!

    • Thank you so much for your comments! I definitely know how it can be to neglect the younger ones because the older ones can do–and want–so much more! My daughter LOVES our one-on-one time doing Walk Beside Me.

    I love this pack! I’m just not sure how to use the last page of helping the warriors follow Helaman? I thought it might be a weaving page? I’m sure it’s obvious to everyone else but me!

    • Leeann, thanks for the comment. While the weaving one is FANTASTIC, that is overthinking it! ;) It’s just another tracing page to help with the downward motion of the capital H letter. If that makes any sense. It’s line-drawing practice, I guess! But, the weaving idea is super cool. You could easily snip those lines and have your child weave paper through them! Love it. :) In fact, that’s a great way to make it work for older children too.
