I’m teaching the song Fathers (page 209) for our Sacrament Meeting musical number.  I’ve pooled several ideas together and I hope I can give credit where credit is due (and thank you Choristers Facebook Group for all your input!!).
Items needed:
  • Chalk and eraser
  • Song on CD (Disc 4 #36) and a CD player (optional)
  • Flip chart pages HERE printed on card stock and placed in sheet protectors (the original source to the flip chart is HERE which includes the chorus – mine does not)
  • tape or magnets
  • Props:  sunglasses; helmet and/or shin guards, kneepads, etc; flashlight; conductor stick (I’m using a wooden dowel); and a “Special” badge (download using my access button at the bottom of this post) printed on yellow paper or card stock and laminated; and a clothes pin

Here’s my lesson plan (download the document using the button at the bottom of this post):


The Attention-Getter idea is from A Children’s Songbook Companion.  Below is a visual of how to present it on the chalkboard:


(after, ready for flip chart pages)

You can download these documents using my access button below if you like.

editor’s note:  I don’t use flip charts often but I did like this sister’s work and choice of pictures, especially for the 3rd verse.  It helps that I am not teaching this song entirely with them but using props as well.

You can go HERE and see all the Father’s Day posts I have posted if you are in need of more ideas.

  1. What is the facebook group called? I just tried to find it, the Choristers Facebook Group and I couldn't find it. I would love to join this! Thanks for all you post every week, it's always so helpful!!!

  2. Camille, I was searching around last week and found a post with a drawing of Dad and then interchangeable ties that have different songs listed on the back. I could have sworn this was you but now I can't find it. Do you have any idea who this might have been? Any help would be great. Thanks
