“Additional Resources for Teaching Children,” Come, Follow Me—For Primary: 2019

Additional Resources for Teaching Children

All of these resources can be found on LDS.org and in the Gospel Library app.

Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families

You can adapt any activities from this resource for use in your Primary class. Even if parents are using these activities with their children at home, repetition can be a useful way to help children learn. Children may want to tell you about how they did the activities with their families and what they learned.

Behold Your Little Ones: Nursery Manual

Many of the topics taught in the 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 and Liahona magazines

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

Hymns and the Children’s Songbook

Sacred music invites the Spirit and teaches doctrine in a memorable way. In addition to 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.lds.org or in the LDS Music App.
