Primary 3 Lesson 42
Primary 3 Manual
I've had this hand out for a long time about Tithing. The children think it is fascinating that I use real money.
I love the worksheet on Sugardoodle by Veronica here (no picture added to my site). It's a great worksheet for tithing.
I always bring 10 real dimes and let them count the dimes and figure out how much to pay tithing on the 10 dimes. I give them all a tithing slip. I find it is easier to have the top portion filled out for these younger children - even my 7 year olds. It's a a huge task to help them all put in their address and even look them up for each child - now I just have it filled out ahead of time. Plus, it is easier for the clerk to enter the tithing if it is filled out by me - less questions.
I give each child a dime and let them fill in the money portion of the ticket - and they can put in the date and ward (because it is the same for each child and you can print it on the chalk board). Then we walk down to the bishops office and give it to him or one of his councilors.
I've printed out this handout from the Friend in the past - but DON'T do it - it is outdated and doesn't help at all.
I have a tithing slip printed out to a full page size to show them - it's much easier.
Where Does Tithing Go? handout from the September 2005 PDF Friend pages 12 and 13 only here (top line, download the whole magazine and only print the pages above):
The next 4 pages with a "find the coin" activity and "Tithing Maze" come from the February 2010 here:
