Camille's Primary Ideas: A Child's Prayer Singing Time Lesson Plan Idea

Teach A Child’s Prayer in singing time using this simple singing time idea!  The fun part begins when you start practicing the 2 different parts of the song using my review necklaces!

Camille's Primary Ideas: A Child's Prayer Singing Time Lesson Plan Idea

For this activity, you will need a flip chart.  Pictured above is from Finch Family Games that you can purchase HERE.  However, this one is free HERE and will easily work too!

Before Primary hang up verse one visuals on the chalkboard using tape or magnets vertically down the left side of the chalkboard, in order.  Place the 2nd verse vertically down the right side of the chalkboard, but out of order!

Attention Getter

As you and the teachers sing (post the words like I do HERE and/or play the song on your phone) ask this question:
  • Who is the child speaking to? [Heavenly Father]

Sing or play it again and ask this next question:

  • How many times is Heavenly Father’s name sung?  [3]

Proceed to give a personal experience about prayer or ask if any of the children have had their own prayers answered.

A Child's Prayer Activity

For Senior Primary, have the children draw lines on the board from the first verse card to the corresponding second verse card that is out of order (a matching game).  Then sing both phrases – first verse and then the 2nd.  Make sure to note to the kids that these are the first and second verses of the song even though the melody is completely different in each!

Go on to the 2nd phrase in the first verse and find it’s match in the second verse and so on until all cards are matched, gradually adding on each phrase as you sing it.  

Note:  There are 8 cards in the first verse and only 7 in the second verse so one card in the first verse will have 2 cards that are its match.

For Junior Primary simply add-on with the visuals.  Have a child come up and hold the first phrase of the first verse.  Sing it and then add on until all the cards have been sung to both verses.

See how I practice the 2 parts together to A Child’s Prayer in singing time HERE using these fun review necklaces.

  1. Hey, Camille! I follow your blog and I just want to say thank you for all your great ideas! I am trying to put together a CD for the 2013 primary songs and I need help! I found the MP3 files on the church website but when I click on them it just plays the song. I'm not sure if I need to convert the files somehow or what. Do you have any expertise in CD making? 🙂 I am going to check out your blog again and see if I can find anything helpful on here. My email is rebecker3@gmail.com or I will check back and see if you got my comment. Thanks so much!

    1. Readers asked the same question…here was my answer (you can find the original questions and comments under the post entitled "Music CD for Primary." If you look over to the right, it is listed under the Popular Posts):

      I've emailed everyone that needed help but here's how I do it:

      Use this link on the church's website:

      http://www.lds.org/service/serving-in-the-church/primary/sharing-time-2012?lang=eng

      Scroll down until you see the list of songs. I right clicked on the song's icon I wanted under "MP3 Music and Voice", then selected "Save Link As" and then saved it to my computer. I just did it and it works fine…I don't know what else to tell you.

      Hope this helps.

      ~Camille
