Camille's Primary Ideas: posting words for singing time, singing time flip charts

Singing Time Idea

As you and the teachers sing, have the children count how many tines the word “love” is sung [8].  Repeat again but count how many times the word the word “you” is sung [13].  Make sure to double check your counting and repeat it again ;).

Place the flip chart on board and pass out scarves to kids.

Find more details about using scarves in singing time HERE.

Wands for singing time
Wands also work for this activity.  Check out more details about wands HERE.
 
Or a popsicle stick or using the kids’ hands works too!
 
Place Melody Map #1 on board and ask the children to count how many times they hear/see the repeated melody as you pitch lead [4].
 
Repeat with Melody Map #2 [2].  Have the Primary fill in the words for each dot on the melody map and then sing it.
 
Sing and pitch lead the last line, asking the children to listen for the word on the highest pitch [love].  Have them reach really high on that note while pitch leading with the scarves.
 
Divide the kids into 2 groups and let them alternate phrases as you indicate, pitch leading when it’s their turn.  Everyone sings the last phrase together.  Repeat, switching parts for the groups.
 
Gradually remove flip chart pages from the board as the kids :
  • Continue to pitch lead
  • Take turns directing their own movements
  • Other movements with the scarves or wands (such as the position cards found HERE)

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that Heavenly Father specifically sent each child to their mother.  Because we love our mothers, we want to make them happy.
