To introduce the song, I’m using the ATTENTION-GETTER suggested in A Children’s Songbook Companion (find out more about this book HERE). I created a printable quote that you can download using my access button at the bottom of this post to place on the board and read:
Then, you’ll need the flip chart I created that you can also download below. I printed on card stock and placed in sheet protectors (optional).
Find more details on where I got my wands HERE.
You (and any teachers) sing the song as the kids locate and point to the first page using their wand. Once found, tape it onto the first chalk tablet on the chalkboard (see the picture above). Sing the first phrase pitch leading (raising and lowering the wands as the notes go up and down) with the wands if you like. Repeat until all 6 pages have been located and are taped on the chalkboard in order and the song has been sung several times.
When we perform this song for the program, I’m planning on using the handbells.
At the end of your lesson, make sure to bear a quick testimony that you know there is safety and peace in keeping the commandments.
If you like, I’ve got this entire lesson plan demonstrated on video here:
You can also find it on YouTube HERE. I would love it if you would like the video and subscribe to my YouTube channel so I know you find it useful and want more like it.
