He Sent His Son

He Sent His Son consists of questions all about the purpose of the savior and then answers each of those questions.  This singing time lesson plan utilizes this question and answer format that will engage your entire primary!

Camille's Primary Ideas: He Sent His Son lesson plan using questions and answers
To teach this song, present the questions and answers on the chalkboard, similar to what is suggested in the 2014 Sharing Time Outline on page 26 HERE.  You can’t go wrong when you use what is suggested from the general board!
 
One side of the board contains the questions/keywords all in order.  The other side of the board will contains the answers and a picture of the answer.  But this answer column is out of order.  The activity is to gradually gradually connect each question to the correct answer by drawing a line.
 
So your board will start out like this:

And end like this:

Access my printables at my Resource Library.  Instructions for accessing my Resource Library are found at the bottom of this post.

With the exception of the pictures which are all from the Gospel Art Book, or GAB.  You can download and print these images HERE.
 
Or I suggest you get yourself a copy of it HERE. See how I’ve taken mine apart HERE (just scroll down a bit). 
Once you have your printables and pictures, place these 2 pages front and back in a sheet protector:

He Sent His Son Activity

Before primary, hang the sheet protectors containing the questions on the left side of the board with only the keywords facing out and in order (the questions will be facing the chalkboard, hidden).  I suggest using magnets so you can easily flip them over. 
 
Then on the right side of the board, hang all the pictures facing out and out of order (the answer pages are facing the board, hidden).
 
To introduce the song, you and the teachers sing the song.  Have the children listen for the words on the board and to see if any pictures look like what is being sung.
 
Afterward, tell them this song is a list of questions and answers about how Heavenly Father sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to show us how we should live.
 
For the lesson, turn over the first key word.  Read the question and see if the kids can find the picture that corresponds to the question.  Draw a line to the picture of Christ as a baby and flip it over to reveal the Answer.  
 
Quickly discuss each Q and A.  Sing the first question and corresponding answer.  Repeat until all 5 questions/answers are turned over revealing all the words and a line is drawn to each answer.  If time permits, gradually turn the words back so only the pictures and keywords are facing out and the song is learned.
 
Bear testimony of your deep love for Heavenly Father and for His Son, Jesus Christ.
 

Actions

For Jr. Primary, I am going to incorporate the actions/signs that were posted on the LDS Chorister’s Facebook as we learn each of the lines of the song.  I think it will help break up the monotony as this song has a lot of verbiage.  Here’s the video (a HUGE thank you!):
 
More actions were also shared HERE if you are interested.

  1. great job and great ideas for this song. i will using this idea with a twist of having children come up and hold a Q or A and all stand in row up front with he Qs and As mixed up. they will have to put them in right order while we sing the song. 🙂

  2. thank you so much for this great way to present this song! You broke up the song in questions and answers, which has really helped ME understand more meaning with the song. And this will be a great way to review this song with my Primary children.

  3. Hi Unknown!

    Great question. I only use actions for teaching purposes and not in the program. The only "actions" we'd ever do for the program would be if we learned sign language to a song. I hope that helps!

  4. This isle amazing!! thank you. I'm going to use it all and the video actions too, i can't thank you enough.you always have the best ideas. thank you for all your hard work!

  5. Hi Katie,

    If you are needing a direct translation, I have no idea. Sorry I'm not more help. I'd assume the actions match pretty closely to what is being sung. You might want to comment on the YouTube video and the author might be able to help you more.
