Meet Your Teacher Night

We have a fun activity planned for the Primary 2014 "Meet Your Teacher" night, which is this coming Friday.

First, we passed out reminders in church today.

We will also put a reminder sign up at the end of our street, since everyone in our primary lives within a few streets, and will all see the sign if they leave the neighborhood at any time that day.

I made this sign (but our office just shut down so I no longer have an LFP for printing posters ... so we may not actually use this version):

The sign was inspired by this image:

I used this owl.

We are going to introduce next year's theme, and have some fun activities planned around supporting this theme, and around getting to know their new teachers/classes ... followed by treats, of course :)

We made little "passports" for them where they will earn little stickers as they complete an activity. Junior primary will do this for a short time, then Senior primary will participate in the same activities. During the other half of the time, the classes will be meeting with their new teachers for the activities that the teachers planned.

Each page of the passport is focused on the 2014 topic of "Families are Forever." We decided to simply use the words from the 2014 singing time song, "The Family is of God," by Matthew Neely.

Our Father has a family. It’s Me! It you, all others too: we are his children.

He sent each one of us to earth, through birth, To live and learn here in fam’lies.
Heavenly Father sent us to learn and be with families.

A father’s place is to preside, provide, To love and teach the gospel to his children. A father leads in fam’ly prayer to share Their love for Father in Heaven.
A mother’s purpose is to care, prepare, To nurture and to strengthen all her children. She teaches children to obey, to pray, To love, and serve in the fam’ly.

I’ll love and serve my family and be A good example to each family member. And when I am a mom or dad, so glad, I’ll help fam’ly remember: (chorus) God gave us families to help us become what He wants us to be – This is how He shares His love, for the fam’ly is of God.
