The Holy Ghost, 2nd Verse

For teaching the 2nd verse of The Holy Ghost, I’ll be continuing on with the signing.  Once learned, we’ll be incorporating scarves!!  The kids LOVE it! 

Find the link for teaching the 1st verse HERE along with my demonstration video of the signs.

I’ll be using the 2nd verse word strips I printed out when I taught the 1st verse as well (also found in the link above).
Below are my crazy notes.  You can also download them using the access button at the bottom of this post. I provided links if I could find one for the signs if that helps:
  • 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.
Then, once we’ve learned all the signs, I’m going to give each child a scarf.  Check out my shop HERE with purchasing information.

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.
