2 Nephi 27-28

2 Nephi 27 Due to some unforseen circumstances, I was completely unprepared ahead of time for this lesson. I had prayed to the Lord to let him know I had been doing my best, but I just could not get the lesson prepared, and went to bed.  I HATE having the kids come without a […]

2 Nephi 20-26

Tomorrow is election day which is a holiday here in the Commonwealth, and so I've got a bit of a break tomorrow.  Time to catch up on the blog. 2 Nephi 20-24 This morning a couple of kids had questions about BYU applications and Seminary endorsements.  I showed them the form I filled out and […]

2 Nephi 5-8

2 Nephi 5 To prepare for this lesson I taped a big sheet of bulletin board paper to the wall and drew this basic map: I will add to it throughout the year to help students keep track of where things are happening in relation to each other as the story progresses. I opened with […]

2 Nephi 2 Part 2

This lesson was super, super easy.  The manual had a group activity that worked out perfectly.  I was like the others who reported back on the Facebook group -- the activity went too long and bled into the following day's lesson. I didn't make a handout for this lesson because .... drum roll ... the […]

2 Nephi 2 part 1, The Fall

Wow.  This was a difficult lesson.  I read on the Facebook group that one teacher spent five days on 2 Nephi 2.  I thought that was ridiculous, but after today, I can see why. I got a Facebook message on Friday from a student saying that she was bringing an investigator to class. This is […]

Not My Best Lesson

Well, today's lesson was not stellar.  I don't know why I keep doing this same lesson -- it's a flop nearly every time.  I'm just expecting too much.  These students just can not write a short script from a scripture text to save their lives.  Three years I've been doing it, and it never seems […]

Each phrase is an actual quote from the scripture so that students can learn actual scripture phrasing. Scripture Mastery Keyphrases 1 Nephi 3:7 - "I will go and […]

The Day I corrected the Church Historian (almost)

I attended SVU's Education Conference this weekend. What a strange experience that was!  It was part fundraising convention and part spiritual feast.  So bizarre.  At points it actually seemed like we were at a timeshare sales pitch or an Amway convenction.  Other times it was just like BYU's Education Week, and sometimes even better.   I […]

Last Day of Class

Today was our final day of class.  Students cleaned out their cubbies, ate some yummy food, watched some YouTube videos (sorry, kids -- still no Strange Brew), and wrote some questions to Stump the Chump.  It was a fun laid back day to enjoy our time together. New Book of Mormon Manual I am relieved […]

New Scripture Mastery Passages for Book of Mormon 2013

Today another Seminary teacher came to observe my classroom (more on that later), and she mentioned something that the kids had talked about in class yesterday: the scripture mastery passages have changed!  I decided to take a quick look this afternoon before the kids get home to see what changes have been made. There are […]
