Find the link for teaching the 1st verse HERE along with my demonstration video of the signs.
- Confirmed: I can’t find a link for confirmation, but if I follow the boy in the video, it’s pointer fingers move down in front of chest, then the left pointer finger touches the right side of the chest, then the left.
- Sacred: HERE show a fist with the left hand then open it and rub palms with the left hand facing down with right palm facing up. Left hand moves outward.
- Priesthood: HERE make a “finger man” with left hand and a fist with the right at chest level. Tap the middle finger of the left hand on the fist and bring it up and together with the pointer.
- Holy Ghost: HERE I just do the 2nd half where you “pull the string” with thumb and pointer fingers and I do it with a wave.
- Given: Just following the video, all fingers on both hands touch chest
- Hour: HERE right palm at chest level, facing left. Left hand pointer finger makes a “clock” circling the other palm going upward and outward.
- Listen: HERE Tap right ear with right pointer
- Still Small Voice: HERE (sign for voice) but the boy above does it a little differently which I like: place hands on chest, fingers spread and bring them up to throat.
- Light: HERE the link is for “the light of Christ” so I’m only doing the middle sign on the video – left hand up near head, palm facing out, thumb extended. Hand moves upward and outward slightly
- Do What’s Right: Not sure on the translation – left hand makes a fist with thumb up, placed on right palm. Begin at chest level and outward and bring inward and up.
- Choice: HERE Hold up 2 fingers on right hand, then left hand chooses (brushes) pointer finger then middle finger with all of left hand fingers.
This is totally optional but I think it will be a fun way to change up the monotony of signing. I’ll just have the teachers tie a scarf onto each child’s finger. Then we’ll sign and sing the whole song with the 1st and 2nd verses using the scarves.
I also have a post HERE with MORE ideas for teaching The Holy Ghost. Make sure to check them all out!
