Faith Follow-Up

This is the follow-up post for my Faith singing time idea (found HERE for the 1st verse, HERE for the 2nd, and HERE for the GRAND FINALE!).
The purpose of these is they help others, going forward, tweak plans for their primaries, stray away from lesson plans that flopped {yes, it happens to everyone…even me!!}, and give feedback (don’t be too harsh!) about how it went in general.  You can find my response below.  These posts will be linked back to the actual lesson plan so they’ll be easy to reference.
So, I ask you…
If you taught any of my lesson plans for Faith, how did it go, what things did you change, what do you wish you would have done differently, would you do it again?  Leave a comment below!
Here’s my response:
This was overall a fun and VERY different lesson plan.  I loved how I used the eggs for 3 weeks of teaching – a total bonus!  The kids responded well to the visual of growing the grass.  For a growing tip, just leave the eggs on the counter under a window and keep them moist.  They will do much better than outside (at least that’s what I learned!).
I didn’t change much for my 1st verse lesson plan.  The “growing markers” for the 2nd really could have been omitted.  I kept forgetting to remove them from the chalkboard and then didn’t remove them at all in Junior.
The egg-cutting was really fun. The kids sang their little hearts out (even those 11-year old boys!) and had fun cutting, decorating and taking home their eggs!  I’d totally do it again.  Here’s even a little lesson-plan-in-action shot…
Thanks for commenting and sharing your feedback!!

  1. I have been meaning to thank you for this wonderful idea. I am actually in the Presidency but filled in for the chorister the first week of June and used your lesson plan with the eggshells and seeds. It was a HIT and they sang their hearts to get a chance to come up and plant some seeds! Because I wasn't doing singing time again this month, I simply took the plants in the next week so the kids could see the growth and reiterated the need for faith in watching them grow. I then took them in the 3rd week and spent a small part of sharing time talking about how having faith brings us happiness. I also related faith to the Holy Ghost to tie in with the week's theme.The children then chose a shell and drew a happy face on it and took them home.
    Thanks again! 🙂

  2. I used my sprout seed mix seeds instead of the eggs and wheat seeds. I found it way easier. I let the kids drop some seeds into a jar. I also had some rocks that looked very similar to the seeds and told them we'd have to see which were rocks and which were seeds. A week later I brought the sprouts in to show them how they'd grown and also how the rocks did not. It was a powerful lesson! We talked about all the obvious analogies. I had the kids try eating the sprouts if they wanted to for the review. I sprout seeds a lot so it wasn't that difficult for me to adapt because I already have the seeds and the sprouter. It seemed much easier than the eggs. Thank you for the idea!
