Walk Beside Me LDS Preschool: O

O is for Obey Your Parents

Those of you who follow this blog faithfully know that this letter packet has been a long time in coming. I’ve been struggling with homeschooling, and it was easy to put off finishing these packets while doing 24 Days of Mormon Christmas and starting FHE Made Easy. The good news is, the newest packets of the Walk Beside Me LDS Preschool curriculum is finally ready! Today we are featuring
O is for Obey Your Parents.

Note: The file was too large for uploading, so here’s a second download. Sorry!

Okay, this one makes me laugh because what preschooler doesn’t need a little extra reminder on obedience?  We’ve been working on obedience all week, and it’s fun to be able to remind Nicole about obeying your parents. :) Love that! All jokes aside though, obedience to your parents is a commandment (and great practice for obeying our Heavenly Parents as we grow older!), so this a wonderful time to teach about obedience.

Unfortunately, there isn’t an LDS movie on the LDS Media library that focuses on obeying your parents. However, there are a lot of other resources to get your brain moving on how to teach this important topic! There are a few primary lessons geared for younger children on obedience, and many articles from the Friend magazine. I liked this one called David’s Lesson for younger children, and Ben Obeys would be appropriate for slightly older kids. I really liked this article called Fire on the Prairie for a family home evening lesson!

The secular focus this week is “Outerspace.” Children this age are so curious about the world around them. Chances are, you’ve already had some conversations about the stars and the moon, so this is a good chance to broaden their horizons! The links on the Walk Beside Me Preschool Schedule have some really fun activities for discovering outerspace. One of my favorites is to make a “telescope,” because Nicole loves telescopes. (Thanks, Diego.) 

Another resource we absolutely love is Starfall. This week we discuss “long and short” vowels and Starfall has a really cute little game on the short O sound. I also found fun activities on Long O and Short O at Enchanted Learning, if you feel like your child needs some extra review.

    I just found your blog on Pinterest and I want to tell you that you are in no way a slacker mom! Wow. You are amazing. I love the Walk Beside Me curriculum. It is beautiful and inspiring. Thank you so much for making it and posting it as free downloads.

    • If you saw that mountain of laundry that is LITERALLY taking over my entire *living room* you would probably think differently. But I figure, hey, I’m making a freaking preschool curriculum down ind the basement, who cares if my kids destroy the house while I do it?? Lol JK! Well, not just kidding about the disaster my house is in. You are sweet for saying I’m not a slacker because some days it’s all I can do to get out of bed in the morning. The support I receive from this blog totally helps me to stay focused. Sort of. There is still pinterest… ;)
