Here is a worksheet that helps your students discover the characteristics of a great woman (or man) to marry. It uses Genesis 24. The second page has a key. The title plays off of the movie Johnny Lingo and his 8 Cow Wife to Isaac and his 10 Camel Wife. Hope it is helpful.
The first two pages are some graphics that help teach the story of the birth of the 12 Tribes of Israel in Genesis 29-35 and about the Birthright. The first page is animated to help see who comes first chronologically. The third page is a glue-in to help your students refer back to the information.
The last page has the names of some of the major player and what their names mean in Hebrew. This is especially interesting as you get to the names of the 13 children of Jacob. Much of this information I found using a great website called, www.blueletterbible.org
Here is a glue-in and also worksheet. On the first page the right hand side is partly missing so students can research and discover the comparisons to Jesus Christ, with a partner. The second page is for if you just want to have a glue in showing the comparison.
I hope that you would also help them discover key principles a doctrines like:
-Trust God, even when He doesn’t seem to make sense.
-God will sometimes take us to our limits to strengthen us.
Sorry it has been so long since sharing. I’m getting uses to a new schedule and things. Today I taught Noah and the flood. The big principles I taught were:
Then I did a worksheet that helped teach the many interesting details of the flood. It was called “Two Truths and a Lie”. To start it out you could show the first skit of Season 1, Episode 3 of STUDIO C where the girls are playing Two Truths and a Lie. Funny. Then we did the worksheet. Hope it helps
At the beginning of the school year, it is good to give your students an overview of storyline of the Old Testament. This is to help them see the big picture and where they are at any particular point in the year. Attached is a graphic that symbolizes all the biggest events. The PowerPoint version has a key with it and one slide that numbers them. I have seen some teachers put something like this up with poster paper. You can also just print a copy for each student and have them say what each even is as if it was a quiz. I apologize that I can’t give credit to who made it because I honestly don’t know. I’ve seen this for about 20 years. If anyone knows the artist, please let me know so I can give them credit. Check out the different attachments to see what works for you.
Do you know how to make a poster from a printout like this? Most all of your ward meeting house libraries still have an old fashion overhead projector. Print the 8 by 11 page in your printer then bring to your ward’s printer in the library. Stick in an 8 by 11 piece of overhead transparency paper and copy onto it the image. Then you can project the image onto the wall or poster paper, any size you want with the projector. Then just trace the image onto the poster.
The attachment has some visuals you may want to use in your classroom. I included the PowerPoint below and there is a bit of explanation with each one below the PowerPoint page. There are about twenty 8.5 by 11 visuals. Hope you find them useful. Some of these you may want to put up in your classroom to remind your class of the central ideas. Take a look and see what works for you. I also included the PDF in case you don't have PPTX.
As I have been coordinating early morning seminary teachers, I have been hesitant to share many teaching helps that call for technology like PowerPoint presentations, because few teachers have projectors or the time to set up a lot of things before class. I don’t want to add another burden or frustration. But in the past couple of years, I have noticed a good number of teachers that will hook up their tablets or smartphones to the Ward library’s flat screen TVs to show videos they have downloaded. Also teachers have used this technique to show PowerPoint presentations, websites, and other things.
So here I am sharing a document that can help your students with Scripture Mastery. Notice the first slide hyperlinks you to all the helps for the particular Scripture Mastery. You will want to use these links because there are 10 slides of helps for each scripture mastery so the Presentation is just over 250 slides long. Thy hyperlinks also work on the PDF too. Remember to only take no more than 5 to 10 minutes a day on Scripture Mastery. Slides 3-4 show how to use this effectively.
Also, please don’t feel like you need to use this. Scripture Mastery can just as easily be taught without these helps and the documents I have shared previously to this give some good ideas how to do that. Feel free to edit this help or adjust to your needs. For this reason I am sending the PDF version and the PowerPoint presentation. Hope this helps.
Does anyone know how I could convert this to a free App? That could make it easier to use.
Recently I had sent Scripture Mastery mnemonics to help your students learn the key words to references. I discovered that I made a couple mistakes by accidently using some of the old key words, instead of the updated ones for 2015. So I have made the changes. This way, the key words align with the new SM Bookmarks and the SM Cards. So here is the link to post where the change has been made.
I also made the same changes to the weekly SM worksheets. Here is the link to those where they have also been updated.
This graphic can be used in a few ways. It can be used for helping your class learn the Old Testament books in order. Try using the song on page 114 of the Children’s Songbook to help with that.
It also can be used to show the class how the Old Testament books are grouped and how they are not in chronological order. Have your students group the books in their own scriptures on the page just before Genesis 1. The Hebrew words are what Jewish people use to refer to those things. For instance a Jewish person would call our Old Testament, the “Tanakh” rather than the Old Testament. Make sure you use the back of your throat when you say that.
When you download this, you will see it is in color and black & white. The black & white is nice because it can be blown up (cheaply) at the copy store and then you can use colored pencils and make it into a poster for your seminary wall.
Know how many books are in the Old Testament? How many letters in OLD? (3) How many letters in the word TESTAMENT? (9). Put them next to each other to make 39 books of the Old Testament. Want to know how to remember how many books in the New Testament? How many letters in NEW? (3) How many letters in the word TESTAMENT? (9). 3 * 9 = 27. So there are 27 books in the New Testament.
Most Seminary Teachers know they need to do Scripture Mastery, but many don't have any ideas how to do this consistently, and effectively. These worksheets are a great start.
To help your students truly learn the Scripture Mastery scriptures, it is best that you spend a few minutes each day learning them. Most teachers have found that it is best to spotlight one Mastery passage a week. This worksheet will help you know what to do each day with that particular scripture. You can make a copy of this worksheet for each student, OR you can use the second worksheet where you only give a strip of paper that has the passage for that week. Take a look at both downloads below. Some teachers don’t use the actual worksheet but use the method and pattern for each week.
Since the first semester Assessment test is based on the first twelve Scripture Masteries, and the second semester is based on the last thirteen, it probably is best to focus on them by semester. For that reason the worksheet is divided by semester.
