2012 Primary theme: Choose the Right

The upcoming Primary theme for 2012 is "Choose the Right" based on the following scripture: "Choose you this day whom ye will serve; ... but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" (Joshua 24:15). The Church will send three copies of the 2012 sharing time outline to each ward. A downloadable copy is available at lds.org. The outline contains information for incorporating the theme into Primary sharing time throughout the year. It also discusses ideas for the children's sacrament meeting presentation. Primary leaders, bishopric members and others involved in planning sharing time and the sacrament meeting presentation can benefit from the outline. A special section for music leaders details how to use music in Primary to teach the gospel and involve all children in musical activities. Reinforcement and repetition through music is important for children to learn about gospel principles and several ideas are listed including a basket toss game, singing cube and puppets. At the end of the outline is sheet music for a Primary song called "As a Child of God" by Janice Kapp Perry. A full page of instruction on teaching children with disabilities is given as well. The final page shows a beautiful picture of a small child clinging to the iron rod.
