The girls can use these little handouts in numerous ways -taped on their mirrors and home or in their locker at school, they can be collected throughout the year and made into a little book by punching holes in the corners and using a key ring to attach them. ?If your YW use class journals or smash books, these are the perfect size to tape into their books. You can also take a photo and text it to the girls to have on their phones.

Object Lesson

Bring an alarm clock to class.? Ask the girls to say what the purpose of the object is.? Talk about the way this particular clock allows you to set the time the alarm will sound and any other options such as how loud, how long, snooze features etc.
Let the girls help you set up a scenario where an alarm clock might be used for an important event.? What event it is, what time it starts, suggest how long it takes to prepare and transport to it etc.
Once they have all the details of the imaginary event, ask them if it matters when they set their alarm clock for?
Ask them what would happen if they decided to give themselves ?the absolute minimum amount of time needed, or not enough time, or if something took longer than expected etc.
No one forces you to set the alarm clock according to a strict formula, it is designed to give you choices.? But how you choose, DOES impact the outcome.? The time to get the outcome you want, is BEFORE you make the choice, because after you have made it, it is too late.? We are free to choose, but must live with the consequences of our choices.

Treat Idea:

A fun treat to go with this lesson is Jelly Beans – use the Bean Boozled, a fun little game using a mix of Jelly Bellies, both yummy and disgusting! Start the lesson by allowing each girl to choose if they’re going to eat the jelly bean or not. You can also bring little bags of good jelly beans tied with a ribbon as a treat for each girl to take home with her handout attached!
