I’ve seen LOTS of singing time planners and schedulers out there. I’m more of a simpleton when it comes to my scheduling.
I like to plan only a month ahead (with the exception of my outline summary found HERE.
Along with my annual CD found HERE
If you aren’t familiar with my monthly singing time schedules, you can check them all out HERE
I personally use a simple Word document like this (nothin’ fancy!):
But I get several requests from those who like to plan out the whole year asking if I have something – well, now I do! But this planner can be used monthly as well so use it how you like to plan!
I think my favorite planner out there (and from what I can tell, I’m not alone!) is the one from Primary Singing Time Ideas found HERE
. It’s basic and simple yet very organized and efficient – just the way I like things ;). Unfortunately, Brittney (the blog author) isn’t currently updating her blog – at least what I can see. So I’ve taken the liberty to create a 2019 Singing Time Planner and Scheduler using her template as a guide.
I’ve kept each month as it’s own document so you can easily print one a time.
UPDATE: Due to feedback, I created another planner that follows more closely to what is recommended for singing time beginning in 2019. Only an “opening song,” “singing time” and “other” are options to be filled in. Hopefully this is more helpful.
There’s also a blank one that would work with any month and any year. You simply print and fill them in by hand.
I left all the details for opening exercises that have been done in the past “as-is.” I know some wards will be omitting a lot of this and others will be keeping it or moving it around, etc. Just know that this is as generic as I can make it.
If you prefer to type details in, there’s an editable Word version that Emily posted on the FB group HERE
(you can download it a
t the bottom of this post if you aren’t on Facebook). It’s only for January but you can update it as you need. Thank you Emily!
If you see any mistakes, PLEASE let me know ASAP!! I’m prone to mistakes – more than I care to admit and it can be terribly embarrassing!!
If you follow me throughout the year, I’ll help you get it all filled out with my monthly Singing Time Schedules that I post the last week of every month. Watch for January’s schedule to be posted the last week of December! Also, if you struggle staying organized in this calling, you can scroll through all of my Staying Organized posts all found HERE
(I’d recommend reading them from the last post to the first post).
How do you like to plan your singing time and keep yourself organized in this busy calling? Leave comments to help others out!
