May: Baptism

Sorry I'm late posting this! I got overwhelmed trying to keep up on orders - thank you everyone who purchased in the month of April, or sent donations to help the Howells Family. Wow.

BAPTISM p. 100
Ideas for teaching:
Idea #1:
Discuss with the children the 4th Article of Faith (which you should've reviewed last month)
We Believe that the first principles and ordinances of the gospel are 1st - Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ 2nd - Repentance 3rd - Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins 4th - Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Sing the 1st verse of the song Baptism, and ask the children to listen carefully to which 'ordinance' (you just discussed in the 4th article of Faith) you are singing about. (3rd Baptism by immersion)
Idea #2:
I'm a fan of the "Who" "Where" "When" "How" "Why" cards that I mentioned in previous songs. It gets the children thinking, and listening. Perhaps consider making a set of cards, laminated to use often when teaching new songs. When using these cards, when applicable, have a picture to go along with them. Let the children match the "Who" with a picture of Jesus. "Where" with the "River Jordan or Judeah", etc.
There's no need for tons of visuals, or games, or fillers. Teach with the spirit, and involve the children using appropriate materials.
