Nursery

I love the new nursery manual. I'm so glad I'm in Primary right now or I don't think this would even be on my radar screen.

The manual has simple sweet lessons. Each lesson has a picture of real people that reinforce the lesson as well as a coloring page that can be copied. Each lesson also includes lots of activity ideas for little children.

Another thing I love is that the entire book has teaching tips down the side of almost every page; all the things I wish I could explain to new or not-so-confident teachers. Example~ "To engage the children and help them focus on the lesson, gather them close around you. If possible kneel or sit so that you can look into their eyes. Hold the pictures close to them."

Not only is this perfect for the nursery but I think it is perfect for younger children to use for FHE lessons and talks in primary. I'm happy that I have so many nieces and nephews that will feel the impact of this beautiful book. I love it.

Megan learned about this at Education week. She was REALLY excited about it.

I love it!

I bought one for us to use for FHE. You can even use it with older kids when you want them to teach a lesson.

Wonderful book!

Are you in the nursery or in the presidency? My heart hurst a little right now. They just released me from being the primary chorister.....I miss those kids. I cried......I know my new calling will be okay and I know it's where I should be now, but even when I hear primary music, it tugs at my heart strings. Young Womens will be great, but I thought I'd never be there again. I want to go pick up that new manual anyway (for my grandkids) thanks for the info.
