Link HERE for a neat yearly schedule of the main song and a worksheet for figuring out your year. I never was organized enough to do this as a 4 time Primary Chorister. But since a wonderful chorister from Primary Singing Time Ideas did do it we can all reap the benefits. WOO HOO! I'm sure glad there are organized people in this world. I'm a creative person.... sadly...NOT one of the organized few.
|CHOOSE THE RIGHT IS THE NEW PRIMARY THEME FOR 2012|
The theme this year is CHOOSE THE RIGHT. I have always loved that song and theme. So for the first song of the year we need to cover "AS A CHILD OF GOD" page 28 from the outline.
A Copy of the song is HERE. The Sharing time will be on Agency and our right to Choose. So let's let the children Choose snowflakes with song names attached after teaching the P. 28 song first. I would do the Wise Man and the Foolish Man for an activity song this week. The older kids know it and will help the younger kids learn it just doing hand motions.
|I have saved lots of snowflake ornaments from my tree before I even begin to think of putting everything away I'm going to take these snowflakes and do a singing time with them.|
A flip chart of the song is HERE at Sugardoodle. It just has a few words on each page highlighted so you will have to teach all the other words. Some finger puppets you can use to help kids sing the song are HERE at Enchanted Learning. I love that website and use it all the time as a 2nd grade teacher.
|I have a box of these in silver and also a few crystal snowflakes and some mirror ones.|
I will tape them up on the board from the hanging strings and attach small clear tape to each one with song numbers.
CHOOSE A SNOWFLAKE TO SING....IT'S ALWAYS FUN AND EASY.
I found some cute rubber wrist bands for 80 cents that say Choose the Right on them. It might be even better to get a bunch printed up for your primary if it is one of the bigger ones. I think you can get them done at Oriental Trading. It would be a fun giveaway for the kids maybe after giving a talk in primary. But if you want the link it is HERE at LDS Greats.
HERE at LDS.org you can see the song list and listen to how the music is played and how the songs are sung if you are a new chorister or don't know any of the songs. It's a very helpful site and I would refer to it all year long. It also shows the songs being signed for American Sign Language, which is always something I like to add to one of the songs in the presentation. Check it out at the link above.
|My little granddaughters at their dance recital last week were..... So cute....|
if you wanna
see a funny clip check it out below....
THIS WAS SO FUN TO WATCH....
You will probably have LESS TIME tomorrow to sing since it takes awhile to get everybody to their new primary class. In my experience plan for shorter than your normal length of time to sing. Happy New Year Everybody!
