The Holy Ghost

Camille's Primary Ideas: The Holy Ghost singing time lesson plan idea using a gift
This simple singing time lesson plan for teaching The Holy Ghost uses a gift as an attention getter and images from the Gospel Art Book.
Find a GAB (Gospel Art Book) picture of child being confirmed (you can find one HERE to download or buy the Gospel Art Book at your local Distribution Center.  See how I’ve taken mine apart to use in lessons HERE).
Download and print the 3 questions and 1 quote.  You can download them using the access button at the bottom of this post.
Then also print the word strips also available using the button below.  They were originally shared on HERE (cut each line so each line can be posted individually).
Place all items in a gift box and wrap it if you like (I didn’t but my box was decorative enough).  I also added some tissue paper in between the sheets to make it more like a real gift you’d give receive.


Write “The Greatest Gift” on the top of the chalkboard with chalk.
Ask the primary if they could have a choice of any gift in the world, what would it be? There are many great gifts that we could receive in this life. Take answers.
Tell them Heavenly Father has given us the greatest gift (show the present). Let’s open the present to help us figure out what that gift is.
Have primary children come up and post the 3 questions on the chalkboard with magnets. Let the primary answer the questions.
Have a primary child come post President Woodruff’s quote.
Have a primary child come post the GAB picture of the child being confirmed.
Tell them we are going to learn a song about the gift of the Holy Ghost. Sing through it once clapping the melody and then explain that just as the beat in the song is constant, the Holy Ghost can be our constant companion.

Have primary children post the first few word strips and sing each line as each is added.  I’ve added some simplified ASL HERE that you can incorporate as you sing each line.

After the first section tell them, The Holy Ghost is called the comforter and he can give you comfort when you are sad, lonely or worried.
Have the primary children post the next few word strips and sing each line as each is added.
After the second section explain, Sometimes we say the Holy Ghost “whispers.” We hear his voice with more than our ears. We “hear” him with our minds and our hearts.
Have the primary children post the next few word strips and sing each line as each is added.
After the third section say, Heavenly Father promises this great gift to all who are baptized and keep their baptismal covenants.
Have the primary children post the next few word strips and sing each line as each is added.
After the fourth section, ask and explain why is it important to have the Holy Ghost as a companion? The Holy Ghost will guide you and help you choose the right. You must learn to choose the right in order to be worthy to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus again.

  2. Hi there,
    First, I love your blog it has some great ideas, I'll have to use these… I am the Primary President in my ward in Oregon.
    Anyway, my name is Jaime and I run a blog called The Dress-up Drawer and I am running a giveaway right now for a Picture Presenter which is specifically made for Primary Choristers, FHE, teachers, ect. I was just wondering if you could, or would pass this on to your readers since it might be useful to them and is right up their alley. The winner will be announced on Wednesday the 21st.

    Thanks for your time, and here is the direct link to the giveaway post on my blog in case you want to check it out:
