Choose the Right, Chorus

Camille's Primary Ideas: Choose the Right Singing Time Lesson Plan Idea

Check out my updated Choose the Right singing time lesson plan idea HERE.

Here’s my rough idea for those of you looking for something. I’ll firm up the details next week as this week I’m finishing up the 3rd verse of As a Child of God in ASL (find that HERE if you missed it).

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).

Then for the 1st verse I still want to incorporate my footsteps I used a few years ago (find it HERE). I’ll have the footsteps lead up to the chorus.  I think there are even more than 26 words in the 1st verse so I’ll just combine phrases.
For instance, one footstep is
  • choose
  • the right
  • when
  • 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.
