Picture a Christmas

This is one of the songs we are going to be singing in sacrament meeting Christmas day. To teach this song I like to pull out my favorite…CHALK! It’s my nice, colored chalk that I always use.

Camille's Primary Ideas: Using just the chalkboard for your primary singing time lesson plan
I’ve done Pictionary in the past but I think this time I’m just going to do all the drawing in both Jr. and Sr. Primaries.
 
I start with a big brown frame around the chalkboard for “picture” and explain how this song uses this word a lot, and I am going to draw a picture of Christmas as it is close to the title of this song, Picture a Christmas.
 
Then I go right to the chorus and draw a picture of baby Jesus in a manger in the middle of the chalkboard. Nothing fancy – wrap him in some swaddling clothes and you are good to go! Then underneath him I write the key words in the chorus “Think” “Sing” “Remember” “Picture.” Sing the chorus a few times.
 
Then I just go through the whole song gradually drawing then singing the things it talks about:
  • stable
  • night (draw a moon)
  • angels
  • stars
  • Joseph
  • Mary
  • shepherds
Easy! This song is one of my Christmas favorites for Primary!  I’ve also got another lesson plan for this song HERE that includes using printables to download and print!

All my printables are free and filed on my Resource Library. Filing instructions for accessing each printable on my Resource Library are below the button.

These printables are filed on my Resource Library page under Song Title > Picture a Christmas.
