My second variation while still remaining digital (good for Android users!!) is to use this YouTube playlist HERE
that Sarah created and shared on FB. It contains all the songs found in the Come Follow Me-for Primary manual. I’d suggest downloading the videos to your device. If you need help downloading videos from YouTube, checkout this tutorial HERE
that Rachel shared on FB!! (Read through the comments there for help with Android settings). A HUGE thank you for both of these!!
Another option…there are several sing-along videos on lds.org HERE. Just be aware that not all the songs are included. Download what you need on to your device.
Then continue to hook up your device to the TV the same way as I have suggested above.
Now, not techy? No problem! You can download and print flip charts for each of these songs from jollyjenn.com
and simply bring the songs on CD (if you made a 2019 Primary Program Songs CD, your life will be that much easier! Find details on my CD HERE
). I’d suggest placing each flip chart in plastic sheet protectors and putting them in a binder for easy flipping. It may be a lot of flip charts but if you plan on using them later in the year, you’ll be saving yourself work later on, right?
And my last option is to ask various ward members to come in and do a musical performance of the songs!
Now, to break up each song, I created this simple worksheet for the kids to fill out as they are watching:
If your song choices are different than mine, there are 2 different blank versions (pages 2 and 3) – one with 9 song spaces and one with the traditional 8. Print what you need. Sorry, I don’t have one that you can edit on the computer. You can simply hand write the songs before you photo copy (the font I used is Cambria, size 24 if you want to try to edit this digitally).
I know that the little Jr. kiddos won’t understand most of the worksheet but if you still want to use it, they will have something to color while you watch the videos ;). Or if you want, simply omit the worksheet for the little kids as the videos alone will be enough on their own!
So, dim the lights, dismiss the pianist ;), pass out a coloring utensil to all the kids, along with a worksheet and push “play.” I’m going to encourage the kids to sing along as much as they can and if there are songs they don’t know, they can go home and listen to their CD’s that were given at Christmas. Check out details on my CD HERE.
It should be a fun and simple way to introduce all the program songs for 2019 (as long as we don’t have any technical difficulties)!
