Families Can Be Together Forever

This song is SO familiar, teaching it to the primary will be more like a review.  So I’m planning on reviewing with simple stick figure families using the good-old chalkboard…
 
 
and chalk…
 

You can also check more lesson plan ideas that utilize the chalkboard HERE.

We’ll sing through the song and I’ll have teachers each watch for a good singer from their class.  Good singers will then come up and draw their family on the chalkboard as we sing a verse from the song.  When we have finished the verse, teachers will choose new kids to come up front and draw as we sing the next verse, repeating until all the kids (and teachers, time permitting) have come up and drawn their family on the chalkboard.

You can also ask directive listening questions if you want to add a simple discussion about the message of the song:

Chorus:

  • How long can families be together? [forever]
  • Families can be together because of whose plan? [Heavenly Father’s]
  • Who do I always want to be with? [my own family]

Verse One:

  • I have a family here on earth.  How do they treat me? [they are so good to me]
  • What do I want to share with them through all eternity? [my life]

Verse Two:

  • When will I prepare most carefully? [while I am in my early years]
  • Why will I prepare most carefully? [so I can marry i God’s temple for eternity]

Bear testimony that if we prepare, marry in the temple, and keep all the commandments, we will have this great blessing of being together as a family through all eternity.

UPDATE:  Reader Cara shared her cute chalkboard after this activity and wrote, ” The kids were seriously so excited about their families! Even our visitor that day drew his parents and himself. Everyone participated! It was great! And we got to repeat the song so many times!!!   Thank you again for all you do! You are so creative! I love that some of your ideas are so simple and then others take more prep AND that you take the time to post pics! “
 
I love hearing updates from lesson plans, thanks Cara!
 
Check out my other lesson plan HERE that I taught before having groups of kids draw pictures of each phrase.
