Pioneer Day FHE Lesson

This lesson is loosely based on the primary song, "To Be a Pioneer", which states that you don't have to push a handcart or leave your family dear to be a pioneer, but when you are courageous and stand up for righteousness that you can be a pioneer today. I've included a list of some fun craft and activity ideas if you want to expound on it during the week.

I happened upon your blog and truly love it! It is so inspirational. I have used many of your lessons with my 7 and 4 year old and they are completely engrossed in them. I have have had more success with them paying attention and interested than many of my other lessons put together. I have shared a few with my sister who also loves them. I am truly impressed with your creativity and talent. Keep up the good work, you are our hero here in hot Arizona!

Well, since you asked I'm happy pipe up. I feel so lucky to have found your blog with these FHE lessons! My plan (since I love them so much) is to copy them x 10, cut out their visuals and laminate them and then give the completed packets to both sides of our family for Christmas this year. That's how much I love what you've done. A HUGE thank you to you! You are an angel to those of us (and there are many) who are not so blessed to have all of this 'together' yet. --Megan in Sacramento

When I saw that you love to hear feedback I couldn't wait to jump on and tell you that I am your #1 fan...and I am the 4th do so. Grr. However...I am a HUGE fan and we use your lessons almost every week (usually with only minor modifications for my 3 under 3 and their teeeeeny tiny attention spans! I so appreciate all of the thought and attention to detail and referencing you do! Thanks!!! Anna (Karey's cousin)

Thanks for sharing this lesson. I am planning to do a themed week about pioneers next week. At the end of the week, we are going to a pioneer museum.
I really like the idea of a Family Home Evening without modern technology - we will do that! Thanks

Thank you SO much for sharing your FHE lessons! The Pioneer one has been the perfect jumping-off point for my sharing time lesson tomorrow. Thank you, again!
