Check out my updated Choose the Right singing time lesson plan idea HERE.
Find pictures of ways we choose the right each time the phrase “choose the right” is sung. That way we can discuss a little bit about how we choose the right and how it makes us feel, why we choose the right etc.
Use the chalkboard to hang the pictures, write a few keywords (or draw some pictures for Jr. Primary) like “wisdom” “light” and “bless.”
Then our primary learned the sign for the word “evermore” when we learned Beautiful Savior last year so we’ll sign “evermore” at the end (if you want to learn what the sign is, look up Beautiful Savior in ASL on the church’s music website HERE. It’s the last word of that song too).
- the right
- a choice
- is placed
- before you
And so on.
Just teaching the chorus and 1st verse could take 2 singing times so plan accordingly. I usually only teach the 1st verse of all the hymns we learn.
Come program time, you can have the congregation sing the 2nd and 3rd verses as the closing hymn or a small group of Primary children sing it if you really want it sung.

Hey, I wanted to thank you for sharing your ideas about teaching this song. I meant to get back to you and the weeks have slipped away! We started last week and the kids love the song! Thanks so much for sharing your great ideas. 🙂
We're going to start this Sunday learning this song. I just made all my footprints! Thanks for the advice!
