The scriptures to read and study this week are 1 Nephi 1-7. As you read and discuss these chapters you can use the timeline provided in your materials as a visual aid to help teach about Nephi getting the brass plates.
As you read let your children color the characters from the Book of Mormon. This will help their hands stay busy so their minds can be engaged. Afterwards you can let the children retell the story of Nephi getting the plates using the scene of Laban’s house and the characters.
You can use a bonus idea to continue the main lesson or do a bonus idea each day. One of the bonus ideas is to talk about how the Book of Mormon testifies of Christ. Read Day 1 on your summary sheet for more information. Then have each family member write their testimony on the lined paper provided. If you have a child that is too young to write they can color the testimony coloring page. We love doing this at the beginning of each year to look back at the end of the year and see how our testimonies have grown.
The Day 4 idea talks about Lehi praying unto the Lord. Set a goal to say family and personal prayers each day this week. We provided a prayer chart for you to mark each day you pray.
Read your summary sheet for more bonus ideas and for a song list. Music is another great way for children to learn. If you don’t know a song look it up on the Sacred Music app and learn it as a family.
One of the bonus activities is the Scripture Marking Guide. It’s a little different and we include two different versions, one for younger kids and another one for older kids.
