  1. Will you please let me know what you're singing for Father Day or what you've done in the past? It seems we get our plan all set and then you post what you're doing and i like your idea better. :))

  2. Hi Jocee,

    I'm sorry but I haven't even given Father's Day a thought yet. But now that you got me on the topic, I may do something like "Teach Me to Walk in the Light" along with "Daddy's Homecoming" (an annual favorite). "Fathers" is one we've done in the past that I really like.

    You can scroll through my Father's Day posts that are all under the "Label" section on the right of my blog under "Father's Day."

    I hope that helps some. I'll have my June schedule posted the last week of May which will have my firm plans.

  3. Camille,

    How do you do it!? How do you go about teaching songs that kids aren't familiar and getting them down in 1 week? For example, On Mother's Day you are singing all the mom songs, which is so fun, but do the kids really know them? If not are you just up there singing by yourself? I am trying to picture it and I can just see me singing up there by myself haha! Then on May 21st you are singing Baptism for the OPENING song. Do they already know it or do you teach them the song right then and there? I am just feeling a bit inadequate at the moment haha! And my kids for sure don't learn songs that quickly! Tell me your secrets!

  4. Hi Ashley!

    I guess you could say I don't worry about kids completely memorizing songs and drilling them to death. I prefer variety over them knowing every single word to every single verse of our program songs. But so I'm not up singing solos with all the unfamiliar songs, I make sure to post the words (see my "Posting Words" tab above for details on that) and if there are lots of unfamiliar songs planned with my singing time, I'll pull out the songs on CD so the kids can read the words and sing along with the CD.

    My goal with my Mother's Day activity will be merely to expose the kids to some new songs they've never heard before. Again, I'll make sure to post words and then have them sing along with the songs on CD.

    As for my opening songs, I sing unfamiliar songs all the time on purpose. Again, I post words and we just plow through them – I do make sure that I KNOW the songs because if I don't know the songs, the kids won't be able to follow me (which is usually what they do). The teachers usually sing along and any of the kids who can read sing as well. "Baptism" is a song the primary learned a few years ago so it's not completely brand new to the older kids. As for the younger kids, I'm lucky if they actually sing the songs we've been learning 😉 so I just don't have much expectations for them except to try to be reverent and listen ;).

    I have a post here that may be able to ansewr more of your questions:
