Camille's Primary Ideas: To Think About Jesus Singing Time Lesson Plan Idea using sign language
I’m continuing on with the sign language for the 2nd verse to To Think About Jesus. I will re-post everything from verse one (find that lesson plan HERE) and then add on with verse two.

Prep:
1. Bring 3 pictures found in the GAK (Gospel Art Kit) that can be searched and downloaded HERE:

  • The Ten Lepers GAK 221
  • Christ and the Children GAK 216
  • Passing the Sacrament GAK 604

2. Learn the sign language/simplified ASL to these key words (below are my notes that can also be downloaded and printed using my access button at the bottom of this post):

  • Think – left hand circles temple but doesn’t touch it
  • Miles – hold out right arm, drag 3 fingers from left hand up right arm starting at wrist and ending at upper arm
  • Walked – hands at chest level, palms down, swing hands front and back similar to walking
  • Dust – left hand at chin, palm down, fingers extended and wiggle fingers
  • Children – both hands at chest level, palms open and facing down, “patting” motion starting in the middle and going outward
  • Helped – right hand palm up, place left hand on top in a fist with thumb extended up. Lift both hands together upward
  • Love – cross arms across chest
  • Not (for shouldn’t) – shake your head like “no,” left hand in a fist with thumb extended, bring it out from your chin
  • Hard – make the “H” sign (first 2 fingers extended, thumb holds the other 2) with left hand and make a fist with the right. Hit fists together
  • Sit – forefinger and middle fingers extended on both hands, thumb holding the other 2, and cross them together like the left finger are sitting on the right
  • Seat (for chair) – similar to “sit” except the left hand 2 fingers are bent over the right hand, straight, fingers
  • Listen – touch left ear lob with left hand twice
  • Feet – right hand palm down, fingers extended away from body, left hand points down 2 times, once by the pinky and another forefinger of right hand (like pointing at each foot)
  • Not (for shouldn’t) – shake your head like “no,” left hand in a fist with thumb extended, bring it out from your chin
  • Hard – make the “H” sign (first 2 fingers extended, thumb holds the other 2) with left hand and make a fist with the right. Hit fists together
  • Children (for small) – both hands at chest level, palms open and facing down, “patting” motion starting in the middle and going outward
  • Think – left hand circles temple but doesn’t touch it
  • Jesus – middle finger of the left hand touches the palm of the right and then the middle finger of the right hand touches the palm of the left
  • Not – shake your head like “no,” left hand in a fist with thumb extended, bring it out from your chin
  • Hard – make the “H” sign (first 2 fingers extended, thumb holds the other 2) with left hand and make a fist with the right. Hit fists together
  • All – left hand in fist near right shoulder. Then make an “L” shape with forefinger and thumb and cross your body

I have a post HERE that goes more in depth about teaching sign language in singing time.

4. Bring magnets and chalk

Activity:
1. Post the picture of The Ten Lepers on the chalkboard with a magnet. Write the following words underneath the picture with chalk:

  • think
  • miles
  • walked
  • dust

Teach the Primary how to sign each of these key words one at a time and sing the song as you learn each sign, gradually add each word.

2. Post the picture of Christ with the Children on the chalkboard with a magnet. Write the following words underneath the picture with chalk:

  • children
  • helped
  • love

Teach the Primary how to sign each of these key words one at a time and sing the song as you learn each sign, gradually add each word.

3. Post the picture of Passing the Sacrament on the chalkboard with a magnet. Write the following words underneath the picture with chalk:

  • shouldn’t*
  • hard
  • sit
  • seat**
  • listen
  • feet

Teach the Primary how to sign each of these key words one at a time and sing the song as you learn each sign, gradually add each word. *Sign the word “not” /**sign the word “chair”

4. Post the picture of Christ with Children from around the World (from the 1st verse) on the chalkboard with a magnet. Write the following words underneath the picture with chalk:
shouldn’t

  • hard
  • small*
  • think
  • Jesus
  • not
  • hard
  • all

Teach the Primary how to sign each of these key words one at a time and sing the song as you learn each sign, gradually add each word. *Sign the word “children.”

Once we’ve learned the signs, I’ll pull out the scarves (more details on where I purchased mine are included in my Signing for Singing Time post linked above.
