July Sharing Time Week 2

Week 2: Jesus Christ went about doing good.

I don't know about your kids, but our primary kids love rolling dice. I created a cube that matches with pictures of Christ doing good. Children will match the picture on the dice to a story of Jesus doing good. We'll discuss the story and recite the scripture Acts 10:38, "He went about doing good, for God was with him."

I'm using pictures from the Gospel Art Kit and hopefully our library has a picture of Jesus feeding the 5,000. If not, I might print one from a google search. Here are the matchups:

Jesus Blesses Jairus's Daughter GAK 215 - SICK

Christ and children from around the world GAK 608 - CHILDREN

Christ ordaining the apostles GAK 211 - HANDS

Christ healing a blind man GAK 213 - EYES

Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead GAK 222 - DEAD

Jesus feeds the 5,000 (Library) - FOOD

After we've matched up all the photos with the dice, we'll talk about how we can do good on earth just like Jesus. I will have a child roll the dice again, and tell us how they can do good with their hands, eyes, helping the sick, children, someone who lost a loved one or bless others with food. I hope they come up with good examples, the children are very smart and compassionate when it comes to service.

Every time we roll the dice I want to recite that scripture so we can have it memorized by the end. Here is my handout for the children, hopefully they can recite it to their parents and tell them what we learned about.

I printed my cube on green cardstock, simply follow the directions in the corner to assemble.

Camille, I found your suggestion on Sugardoodle and had to come here to say thank you so much! I have to do Sharing Time this week and put it together quickly, and we do junior and senior at different times, and this will work for both. Thank you so much!

As an aside, my husband is a non-member. I'm going to bring the dice home and have my little one play the game with her daddy, and share the stories with him. It will be great for our home, too!

Thanks so much for this great idea. Could you please email me the dice clip art? For some reason, it isn't working when I click on your link. Again, thanks so much for sharing your talents!
