{Free Printable} 13th Article of Faith

**Updated version, with red in the text HERE!
 8x10 version
  4x6 version

Where I go to church (I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), I get to teach the children ages 3-11 the music and songs, appropriately called "Singing Time." I LOVE it! I've decided I might share a few of my teaching ideas and activities. Some of them could be adapted for different classroom settings, although this one is pretty specific.

I set a goal for our primary to learn all the songs to the Articles of Faith, a series of 13 simple statements of what we believe. Since there are 13, we began with number 13 in December. That way, we can start with number 1 starting in January and end with number 12 next December. We practice the words and song for about 3 minutes at the beginning of singing time, and the closing song for the whole month is the corresponding Article of Faith.

I wanted to make some printables to pass out to the kids to help them memorize the Articles of Faith. I wanted them to be kind of fun, and in the primary colors.
Check back at the beginning of each month- I'll have a new matching Article of Faith printable for anyone who might be interested! 

Please feel free to use these for personal or church use! All I ask is that you become a follower of my blog first. Thank you!

love it! Too bad I don't have a good use for it right now. Hopefully I'll remember where to find it if I ever do need to give my primary kids a 13th article of faith handout.

This is great! Thanks for sharing it with the rest of us! I bet you do such a great job with your calling! My friend is over that in our ward, and I always think what a time consuming calling it must be, since she puts so much work into it!
