We are going to incorporate a scripture hero theme, and challenge the children to read and learn about their favorite scripture hero. We will introduce a scripture hero a month. We will have coloring pages, word searches, crossword puzzles and other funstuff that have scriptures attached. We will introduce a scripture hero a month on the first Sunday of the month. We made a door out of a tri fold postor board for another sharing time lesson. We will post a picture of the scripture hero of the month inside, along with " super hero" exclamation bubbles that have the attributes of that hero. For instance if it was Nephi, his attributes would be "faith", "courage" "loyalty", "trust" etc. We will invite a child to come up and "knock" on the door and invite the hero in. We want the children to see the scriptures as a "door" a way to gain knowledge, faith, and testimony. We will share single verse challenges for the beginner readers, and chapters for the older children. We will occasionally show one of the scripture videos from the church. On the 5th sundays we will invite that months scripture to come do sharing time. (In costume). We will ask them to share some of their experiences from the scriptures and to bear testimony at the end. We hope that this will challenge the children to learn and read from ALL the scriptures. We have male and female scripture heroes. We haven't decided yet how to measure their progress in reading, but I am sure we will figure it out. My counselor's and I are still going over the details, and we will incorporate these ideas in our newsletters, and " miss you" post cards to the missing children. We also hope to incorporate it into our sacrament program as well. I want to thank bloggers, teachers pay teachers, google, and The Friend, and lds.org for all the ideas we are including.
This is our potential bulletin board.
