A previous ward of mine handled “assignments” for the kids – talk, prayer, scripture, etc by handing each child an envelope with their assignment card. It was a big deal to get an “envelope” during opening exercises! So I tailored some assignment cards I saw on Susan Fitch’s website HERE
(I seriously LOVE her work!) to fit our ward. I thought I’d share even though it’s not really singing time related…
You can download these using the access button at the bottom of this post.
I also have an all-boy version:
Or an all-girl version:
I have Spanish translations of the all-girl version:
And Spanish translations of the all-boy version as well:
Or individual boy/girl sheets in case your ward only wants to assign out one item in advance and then ask for volunteers the day of.
Also available is an idea for helping you write your primary program using talks given throughout the year! Check out more details HERE
Once cut and filled out, each assignment is placed in our primary’s mailbox found here:
Then as part of opening exercises, we’d “check the mail” and pass out the next week’s assignments. At the time, our primary spotlighted a child each week in opening exercises and the spotlighted child got to deliver the mail. It was seriously SO fun and SO simple! The mailbox also contains other things like birthday gifts, Relief Society flyers, and anything that could be considered “announcements.”
Our primary presidency also decided that it would be nice to have the current month’s scripture taped to the podium so the child who was assigned to read the scripture had it right there in front of them.
So I typed up 2015’s scriptures for each month so each scripture fits on a half sheet of paper. They will be able to fit into a half-size sheet protector. The sheet protector will be taped to the podium but the scripture papers inside can easily slide in and out with each new month.
A NEW year with a few NEW changes coming to our primary :).
