Getting Ready for Easter

I won’t be using this activity until the Sunday AFTER Easter (that’s when our ward is “celebrating” per se in Sacrament meeting).  I think it’s because our fast Sunday is the week before conference.   I posted this early for those who want to do an Easter themed singing time the week before conference.

The week before Easter I’ll be doing a General Conference activity that I do every year found HERE.  I’m using the week to take a break from program songs for the month!

Okay, back to the Easter lesson…sorry for the tangents!
 
I took the “Getting Ready for Easter” activity in this month’s Friend and turned it into a singing time activity!  You can find the original source HERE from the Friend. (Below, I also have a similar version using the Gospel Art Book pictures as well!!)
 
If you’ll notice, I just added a Primary song to each picture circle that relates to each number.  Just do as the instructions say in the upper lefthand corner but include singing the song in between each one.
 
All my documents are available using the access button at the bottom of this post.  I have several printing options including a non-printing version too!.

 

I have a JPEG 20×30 version (great for Costco for $9.99) with or without the songs listed on the circles.  To pick my songs I simply looked up correlating topics in the back of the songbook – pretty easy.  Make sure you download from these links and not right click on the image above for better resolution quality.

 
If you’d rather print this at home, I’ve “tiled” this poster as well.  I’d recommend printing on card stock for durability.  Again, I have a version with and without the words.
 
What’s great about this, is it can be used EVERY Easter, so well worth the effort!!  You can also find more of my Easter singing time lesson plan posts HERE (one of them is a similar activity using the Friend from a few years ago).
 
Here’s my Gospel Art Book version:
 
Another thought, would be to use similar Gospel Art Book (GAB) pictures found HERE that are similar to the ones used in this activity:
 
  1. Jesus Washing the Apostles Feet HERE
  2. The Last Supper HERE
  3. Jesus Praying in Gethsemane HERE
  4. Roman Soldiers Gambling HERE (not in the GAB – couldn’t find anything that worked well there)
  5. Jesus Praying with His Mother HERE (kind of a stretch but it works)
  6. The Crucifixion HERE
  7. Jesus Shows His Wounds HERE
Match up the pictures with the same verbiage in the activity…I even typed it up – download it using the access button at the bottom of this post.  You could do a matching game…place everything out of order on the chalkboard and the kids get to match it all up by drawing a line with chalk.  Easy!
 
If you HAPPEN to need an Easter lesson plan to fill the full 5th Sunday hour, I’d recommend this activity, then pulling out the handbells and finishing up with the song Hosanna.
 
Find my lesson plan, complete with bell charts HERE.  Never used the bells in primary?  See my post HERE!

    I am not sure if this is just a problem with my computer, but I keep trying to print the tiled picture and it prints 2 copies of the 1st 3 pages but won't print the last 3. Any ideas? Thanks for the great lesson plan!

    Hi littlelibrarian!

    I haven't used this lesson plan yet but I did print the poster at costco and will cut out the circles, maybe even glue them to some thicker backing…not sure.

    Then I will have a child or a class pick the matches.

    I hope that helps!

    I uploaded the image to Costco. I have everything ready to go but it is saying the image is low resolution. Is there something I need to do to resolve that? I don't want to order the print and have it be blurry. Thanks for sharing all your hard work with us!

    Hi Lori!

    Sorry for the delay in responding – I've updated the JPEG images so they are bigger files and shouldn't give you the low resolution warning. I did originally have it printed with the smaller file and it printed fine but now there will be no need to worry. Let me know if you have any trouble.
