In my Young Womens room we’ve got a basket of these cards. I just hand a card to the girl conducting that day and she makes the assignments…um I mean well in advance of the day. 😉 It makes getting started just a little more organised.

Here is a sheet of opening exercise cards that you can print out, cut and have on hand to make organising the start of Young Womens a snap. Works great in black and white too, because most of us would just use the copier.

I realise not everyone would have a closing prayer or song all together, so just use a little white-out on it before you copy them and you’ve got extra room for announcements. Just drag and drop to your desktop and print away!

I ask 2 things if you use these:

  1. Leave a comment and say where you’re from! It’s fun to see who is using these.
  2. Respect the copyright terms, as you usually do.


p.s. If you want the announcements to be before the lesson but after the exercises, you can get those cards here.

    Hi there! I just love your beautiful new fresh look for YW!! I've been in YW for almost 15 years now, and I 'm so excited for a change and an update! I have purchased all of the banners that you sell for YW and we give our girls the smaller version of the theme for their BDs this year. They LOVE them!!!

    I was wondering if you could offer an alternative format to your beautiful opening exercises freebie.I have found that our opening exercises never officially "starts" when we begin with announcements. It seems to be a continuation of the conversations happening before class. I have decided to start YW with a Welcome, Opening Song, then Prayer, and THeme. And then I start into the announcements. (Following the format used in sacrament meeting). I have found this really gives an official "beginning" to YW and invites the spirit (and quiets the girls!!)

    I really want to use your beautiful cards as they go with everything I've been decorating with from you already! Would that be easy to do? I appreciate you considering this. Thanks so much!
