I especially love the beginning (Examples of Righteousness, from the April 2008 Priesthood Session),where President Monson is saying "...stand for the right..." I am going to go to my ward library and see if they have a DVD of the broadcast to play in primary. If the ward library does not have it, I'll either play the audio from my iPod (you can download it here), or I'll just read this much:

This is what it looks like:
Cut out each of the small and large speech bubbles. Attach a handle to each of the large speech bubbles (paint stick, straw, wooden dowel, plastic spoon, stick from a tree...whatever you can find!).
Begin by showing a picture of President Monson, and telling the children, "Our Prophet has some words for you! And these are the words...." Cup your hand to your ear and wait for the children to finish the phrase, "....be true, be true." Explain that you have some other words from the prophet you would like them to hear, and play the DVD of President Monson mentioned above (or the audio clip, or read the paragraph).
Sing the song, Stand for the Right one time through.
Next, ask the children if they remember who Gordon B. Hinckley was, and show his picture. Put his picture on the whiteboard with magnets or tape.
Explain that President Hinckley also had some "words for you", called the 6 Be's. Hold up your fingers with each "Be" and recite:
- Be grateful.
- Be smart.
- Be clean.
- Be true.
- Be humble.
- Be prayerful.
