February Lesson #2
This Power Point Covers:
Why Do The Choices I Make Matter?
This lesson took me forever to finish because I had such a hard time narrowing down the information! I could have made this into two lessons for sure. There are still a lot of slides and a lot to go over. I would recommend having the girls read and participate as much as possible to keep them engaged. I used the talk by President Monson, the 3 R's as well as a bit of info from Mormon.org and a great talk in the February New Era by Mindy Raye Friedman titled "Why Making Choices Matter".
There is also 3 activities/analogies. The first is the "V" object lesson mentioned in the lesson outline on lds.org. The second is likening choices and freedom to a RIPTIDE. I have posted that story above. The third is an opportunity for the girls to role play. I have 4 scenarios typed up (download above) and I am going to ask 4 groups of girls to act each one out. Some girls will be the friends trying to persuade their friend and the other girl will be the decision maker. If you feel like your girls have different areas of need obviously feel free to change the topic of the role plays. :)
I know the "CHEWS" word play gets used a lot when it comes to lessons involving choices but I just couldn't help myself! I plan on sticking a piece of "Double Bubble" to each handout. The JPEG image is above for you to download. :)
Good luck with your lessons. As always, if you need a converted copy of the power point because your computer won't open it, let me know.
**Please Note: Due to different versions of power point the slides may need to be adjusted after you download them. Please go through the power point before your lesson to make sure the pictures and the text are formatted correctly! I just opened a file I made using my laptop with my iPad and the font was different, colors were different and some of the pictures were in the wrong place. It may take a little tweeking! :)**
I'm a 36 year old Mom of 4 kiddos, 3 boys (12, 4 & 2 years old) and one little princess (9). I have an awesome hubby who puts up with my craziness...He supports me when I spend way too much time on my YW lessons. I started this blog for fun and have been so excited to watch it grow and watch others being able to use the Power Point lessons, handouts and other ideas I have posted. Thank you for stopping by!
