Toddler-Friendly Scripture Study: Chapter 10

Chapter 10: Jacob and Sherem

If you haven’t read my initial post, read it here. It explains the scripture study plan in a little more detail and gives more information for how to teach it. 

I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (march in place with the beat)
I know who I am. (point to self)
I know God’s plan. (point to head)
I’ll follow Him in faith. (hold both index fingers up; move one and have the other follow)
I believe in the Savior, Jesus Christ (raise right hand up, making a 90 degree angle with arm)
I’ll honor his name. (sign language for “honor”)
I’ll do what is right; (sign language for “right”)
I’ll follow His light. (hold both index fingers up; move one and have the other follow)
His truth I will proclaim. (cup both hands around mouth like you are yelling something)
Art/Craft:
1. Testimony coloring pages here, here(super simple and cute) and here
Activity:

Additional Activities:(for the over-achiever!)
1. “Building” testimony printable – you could do this with actual blocks, like this idea.

Scripture Study Outline
Again, if you haven’t read my initial post, read it here. My outline is very brief, so this explains the scripture study plan in a little more detail and gives more information for how to teach it. 
1. Preview the chapter with a picture walk. (Explanation found here.) Introduce the song by listening to it a couple times.
2. Read the story from the manual. Ask questions and take time to look at the pictures as you read. Take as many days as needed to read the whole chapter.  End each day by singing the song.
3.  Have your child color one of the coloring pages while you read sections of the story from the actual scriptures. Take as many days as needed to read through the passages. End each day by singing the song.
4. Watch the scripture story video for this chapter. Talk about Jacob’s testimony. Point out that even though Sherem tried to argue with Jacob and make him stop believing, Jacob’s testimony was too strong. Show your testimony glove (from the activity section) and talk about the basic parts of having a testimony. Share your testimony using the glove.

5. Read a favorite verse from this story two times and have your child read it with you the second time. Summarize the chapter and share your testimony about an important lesson learned. Have your child use the testimony glove and share their testimony. End by singing the song.
