Personal Progress Values Classroom Banners – temple style

Our personal progress classroom temple banners fit on four pages or less. I created them to be used at New beginnings or when you are focusing on a particular value during the month; however, you’ll find lots of uses for them at camp and other activities, I’m sure. Simply print out the pages, align the overlap, and tape for a beautiful classroom poster! Enjoy! Sample image:

YW Values (Printable)

 

As of late, I have become ga ga for vintage floral patterns. There is something just pretty and sweet about them. I decided to create the YW values with pretty florals. I plan on printing them off (enlarged copies) and posting them in the YW room for decoration. Feel free to use in your young womens and share! You can download for free here http://courtneyaitken.blogspot.com/2013/01/yw-values-vintage-style.html

YW Elements: Choice and Accountability Flower

Why settle for just a chip?

Here is Trudy’s description of this handout:

    For this lesson I made chocolate chip cookies to give out at the end. At the start of the lesson I put out a plate of chocolate chips and told the girls at anytime during the lesson the could come up and grab some choco. chips, a few of them jumped up immediately to grab some, I stopped them to tell them they needed to understand fully what would happen if they took the chips now… I had something else for them but they would have to wait for the end of the lesson to get it, but if they took any chips they couldn’t have my mystery item. I wouldn’t confirm that it was cookies, but they were pretty sure it was. I would remind them during the lesson to grab some chips now if they wanted. They are always hungry so it was so hard for them to stare at that plate of chocolate and not grab one. Oh and I put it on a cute plate and said something about how cute the plate was and are you sure you don’t want a little handful?

    The cute plate was representative of how Satan serves up sin on a pretty plate so will take it. I pointed that out to them at the end after I gave them the cookies and summed it up and encouraged them to always ask themselves if a choices they were making were ones that would be chips or cookies.

Thanks, Trudy!

Choose Your Own Fortune

Jennifer H. shared this handout. She says, “This little handout was used at girl’s camp, where we placed little thoughts on their pillows every morning and night. Each thought came from one of the 7 values. I purchased individually wrapped fortune cookies and found some small compasses from a local party store. I taped them over the pictures of each on the handout, and glued the handout to a background made from orange cardstock (to represent the value color).

“All of the clipart came from MS office. The font is from MS Word and is called Freehand 591BT.”

2 per page, color, 8.5 x 11 inches.

Choice and Accountability Game — Game of “Light”

Monica S submitted this game to teach Young Women about their choices relating to the standards found in For the Strength of Youth. She says:

    I made a Choice and Accountability game where the girls have to tell how they would react in a real-life situation that has to do with the youth standards from For the Strength of Youth. I think most of the situations are up-to-date and they can actually relate to them.

    To go with the 2006 mutual theme, )”Arise and Shine
    Forth”), I called it “The Game of LIGHT” and made a
    sign that looks like the logo of The Game of LIFE. I
    used the spinner from LIFE.

    The girls divided into teams and one volunteer at a
    time from each team came up to the front and spun the
    spinner to see how many points she could earn if she
    had a satisfactory answer to the question she would
    choose. I had all the questions printed out on cards
    and she would choose one out of my hand, read it out
    loud and tell her answer, with help from her team if
    she wanted. If she gave an answer that did not show
    she was committed to the standards it was turned over
    to the adult leader judge who awarded her partial or
    no points.

    I had them win points as stars on the chalkboard and
    at the end the team with the most stars had the most
    “light” to share, and they won the privilege of
    serving star-shaped sugar cookies to the other teams
    and then having some for themselves.

    Even though it wasn’t a super fun lighthearted
    activity, the girls all seemed to be into it and it
    brought up some discussions among them about living
    the standards. Some of the girls learned something
    they didn’t even know was one of our standards.
