If you haven't heard of the show "Super Why" this is nowhere near as cool. But, my boys love the show and I was inspired yesterday to have a little Super Why activity. At first I thought maybe for primary, but then changed my mind to use it for FHE. It was a hit with the boys :) I cut out some green foam masks just like Super Why's and planned the lesson to be a whole adventure with finding our own "super story answer" by looking in a book. Our story was from President Monson's talk on Sunday in General Conference about when he was young and started a fire with his friend even though he wasn't supposed to. So, when we got to the part of the story where the fire was out of control, we identified that as our "super big problem!"
The boys put on their super reader masks and we "flew" together into a book. Which happened to be the Book of Mormon.
|Look at the excitement on Brayden's face!|
The story starts with a big storm and thunder, so Brayden helped me with some flickering lights. Then it was dark for 3 days, so we closed the bathroom door and were in pitch black. We decided it was scary and we should help the story by finding a flashlight. Low and behold, there were super letters with the flashlight! Go figure. We were on our way to our super story answer!
The next part of the story was when they heard the voice of the Lord and wished they had repented and come unto him before. So, we found out biggest picture of Jesus and went to him. More super letters were waiting to be found!
Then we got to the part when they couldn't understand the voice of the Lord until they listened. So, we looked to a picture of Christ on the wall for our next letters.
Finally, the people heard Heavenly Father introduce Jesus and he came to the temple. So, I explained that Jesus was there where they could see him and they could see how tall he was. . . the next letters were on their ducky measuring thing hanging on their wall. And we finally had all the super letters from this story. We had to review that the story was about people who had to repent and listen to Jesus in order to find peace and happiness.
Off we went to the super duper computer where we put our letters in order and found our super story answer! dun dun dun. . .
