Next year, since we’re studying The New Testament, I am going to focus my scripture song on The Books in the New Testament
. The scripture song will take place right at the beginning of my singing time and take only 1 – 2 minutes. You can see a few more details HERE
on bringing in a variety of songs into singing time.
I will be creating a variation for the Book of Mormon so watch for that in November 2019!
I thought it would be fun to hang a poster in the primary room with all the books in The New Testament but one that is interactive so I came up with this:
I used this image HERE
and worked a little magic :).
So now you have the option to gradually empty the bookshelf if you like!
(don’t download these images to try to print as they will be too small – files are at the bottom of the post for you to download)
The books can be added and removed as the song is learned! Remove one book every week as you gradually learn the song, or remove a cluster every month (some of the sizes of books may be hard to cut out individually but it’s just the nature of the clip art I chose so hopefully you can get it to work).
This poster doubles as a great bulletin board in the primary room too!
I have a few options for printing. The poster prints as a 20×30 poster/picture (perfect for Costco):
- Print the filled-in bookshelf for JPEG or PDF. I’ve also got a print-at-home tiled version that prints on 9 pages.
- Print the empty bookshelf for JPEG or for PDF. I’ve also got a print-at-home tiled version that prints on 9 pages.
- Print the PDF removable book documents. These print as 8.5×11 documents and either cut out each book or cut out book clusters. I recommend printing on white card stock and laminating!
- JPEG removable book documents. They are still sized as 8.5×11 but you can easily crop them to fit to be an 8×12 photo.
If you find any mistakes, PLEASE let me know!!
I might implement singing this song to the Macarena (I saw suggested) or Emily posted actions that are DARLING on FB HERE
and Patty created a cheat sheet for those actions HERE
