Sharing Time- Love at Home

Purpose: To help children learn to show love at home in their families.

Start with the signs that say "French is spoken here", "English is spoken here", etc.

Have the children find one of the signs hanging in the room & then tell where that language is spoken.

Then show the "Love is spoken here" sign & ask them where Love would be spoken.

Talk about using kind words in our homes.

Show a Popsicle stick that says mean words & have a child come up and break it.

This demonstrates that mean words can break our family bonds.

Pass out a Popsicle stick to all the kids, and have them write a kind word(s) on them.

Have each child come up with their class & tell everyone what they wrote.

Tie all the sticks together & have a child try to break them.

This demonstrates that when we use kind words it helps keep our family strong.

Sing song "Love is Spoken Here" (CS, P. 190)

Place a house on the chalkboard & put the Love is spoken here above the house.

Have some of the classes act out examples of a few other things that helps to have Love in our home. As they guess the charade, put the word strip inside of the house. (Family Home Evening, Family Scripture study, and Family Prayer - made into word strips).

Talk about how Honoring our parents makes us all happy and is showing love in our home.

If I obeyÖIíll be happy all day!
