“Additional Resources for Teaching Children,” Come, Follow Me—For Primary: 2021

Additional Resources for Teaching Children

These resources can be found in the Gospel Library app and on ChurchofJesusChrist.org.

Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families

You can adapt activities from Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families for use in your Primary class. Don’t worry if children have already done these activities with their families at home; repetition helps children learn. During Primary, children may want to share with others what they are learning at home about the Savior and His gospel.

Hymns and Children’s Songbook

Sacred music invites the Spirit and teaches doctrine in a memorable way. In addition to using the print versions of Hymns and the Children’s Songbook, you can find audio and video recordings of many hymns and children’s songs at music.ChurchofJesusChrist.org and in the Sacred Music and Gospel Media apps.

Behold Your Little Ones

Many of the topics addressed in Behold Your Little Ones: Nursery Manual are similar to those you will teach in Primary. Especially if you teach younger children, consider looking in the nursery manual for additional songs, stories, activities, and crafts.

Friend Magazine

The Friend magazine provides stories and activities that can supplement the principles you are teaching from Come, Follow Me—For Primary.

Doctrine and Covenants Stories

Doctrine and Covenants Stories uses pictures and simplified language to help children learn from the Doctrine and Covenants. You can also find videos of these stories in the Gospel Library app and the Gospel Media Library at ChurchofJesusChrist.org.

Scripture Stories Coloring Book: Doctrine and Covenants

This resource contains activity pages designed to enhance children’s learning from the Doctrine and Covenants.

Videos and Art

Artwork, videos, and other media can help those you teach visualize the doctrine and stories related to the scriptures. Visit the Gospel Media Library at ChurchofJesusChrist.org to browse the Church’s collection of media resources. These resources are also available in the Gospel Media app, and many images are also found in the Gospel Art Book.

Teaching in the Savior’s Way

Teaching in the Savior’s Way can help you learn about and apply principles of Christlike teaching. These principles are discussed and practiced in teacher council meetings.

Saints

Saints is a multivolume narrative history of the Church. Volume 1, The Standard of Truth, and volume 2, No Unhallowed Hand, cover the same period of Church history as the Doctrine and Covenants. These histories can give you insights into the context surrounding the revelations you study in the Doctrine and Covenants.
