Lesson 25: Remember to Say "Thank You"

Lesson

The purpose of teaching Primary 2 Lesson 25: Remember to Say "Thank You" is to encourage each other to say Thank You.

Teaching Thoughts

These are a few bonus ideas-keep scrolling for more!

  • Use the glove idea from Faith Sprouts to tell the story of the 10 lepers.
  • Bring some rolls of toilet paper and act out the story. Your class will love wrapping each out up in toilet paper for bandages.
  • Use the dice included in the Red Headed Hostess class packet to practice gratitude.

The following are links to LDS.org resources unless otherwise stated.

My Primary 2 Lesson 25 handout packet includes

  • People I Can Thank handout- draw in the faces and hair or even glue on some googly eyes
  • I Am Thank For handout- draw pictures inside the circles or cut out pictures in magazines to glue in
  • 3 different Thank You cards- plan ahead for this lesson and send one in the mail to your class before you teach (Enrichment Activity 6)
  • Jaredite coloring sheet to go with Enrichment Activity 5
  • This would be a super fun lesson to hand out Thank You stickers every time someone does something nice. I like these multi lingual Thank You stickers.
If you appreciate these helps, please pin it so others can find them too! Thanks!
