Whenever there are beautiful Gospel Art Book images that coincide with Primary songs, I always try to incorporate it!  So use these beautiful Gospel Art Book images as you teach Easter Hosanna with directive listening questions.

To introduce Easter Hosanna use these images found in the Gospel Art Book (GAB):
 

If you own a Gospel Art Book, see how to take it apart.  This is one of my favorite visuals to use in Primary!

Easter Hosanna Singing Time Idea

Give a brief outline of the song by first, showing the picture of The Crucifixion. 
When the Savior of the world was crucified, darkness, earthquakes, and destruction shook the earth.  Jesus’ body was placed in a tomb for 3 days.  Then he arose from the dead as he promised he would.  Jesus was alive again!
 
Ask the Primary who Jesus visited [the Nephites] as they listen to the song on your phone + speaker or as you and the teachers sing the 1st verse to them.
 
Then hang this flip chart on the board:

Easter Hosanna Handbell Chart

Pull out the handbells (and/or begin the Q&A’s at the bottom of this post).  See how I use handbells in Primary.
Camille's Primary Ideas: Using handbells in singing time

Two handbell charts are available for Easter Hosanna.  Both of which are for the chorus only (which is great because you can reinforce the verses with no bells ringing).

This chart uses the guitar chords on the words, “Hosanna!”

Also available is a chart for the chorus that plays the melody.

Directive Listening Questions

Time permitting or if you don’t have handbells, ask these questions as you repeat the song:
 
Chorus:
  • What words did the Nephites cry as they rejoiced? [Hosanna! Blessed be the name of the Most High God!]
  • Notice as you sing the second half of the chorus that it is the same tune as the first half (pitch lead to help give a visual), except for one word.  Which word is it? [High] Sing the entire chorus.
Verse One:
  • As I sing the first phrase, find a word that means that the prophecies came to pass or happened.  [Fulfilled] Invite the children to sing this phrase.
  • As I sing the next phrase, see if the melody is the same or different. [Same] Have the children sing this phrase and then add it to the first phrase.
  • Now find two words that describe how Jesus looked. [White-robed and glorified] Point out the analogy of the descending scale: “as he came down from heaven…”
Verse Two:
  • Jesus Christ appeared to the Nephites on the American continent.  What is another name in this song for the American continent? [Promised Land]
  • What did the righteous people see? [His wounds]
  • What did they come to understand? [That He was risen]
  • What are three other names for Jesus Christ? [Savior, Lord and King]
  • The Nephites rejoiced.  Now who else rejoices? [We rejoice]

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony to the children that you know that Jesus Christ did appear to the Nephites after his crucifixion and you can read all about it in the Book of Mormon.
