Display simple pictures with key words from each phrase of the song around the Primary room (such as be like, following, love, do and say, tempted, and listen), leaving the wall at the front of the room blank. Ask the children to listen while you begin singing the song. Invite them to point to a picture they think matches the words you sing. Ask one child to move it to the front wall. Have everyone sing that much of the song. Continue singing and repeat the activity for each picture. Then have the children sing the entire song several times. Briefly testify of the importance of trying to be like Jesus.
I put mine in plastic cover sheets so I don’t have to cut them out or laminate them. I’ll tape them up around the Primary room before Primary starts.
Anyway, a great, easy lesson plan! You know you can’t go wrong when you do what the Primary General Board suggests, right?
Time permitting, we’ll gradually remove pictures until all have been removed from the chalkboard. **Check out what reader Jennie did in the comments below using the finger lights! What a great idea. If you are not familiar with finger lights, check out my post HERE.**
