I LOVE theming singing time for April General Conference! I feel it not only pumps the kids up for General Conference, but for myself as well! What’s even better is I usually take my singing time lesson plans home and use them with my own kiddos!
I found this awesome activity from The Friend May 2018HERE and just HAD to pull it into singing time! It’s pretty similar to what I’ve done in the past. I’m always trying to find more ways to implement activities from The Friend into singing time.
But before I delve into this activity for singing time, I always start my General Conference singing time with Latter-day Prophets using actions. I have an entire post dedicated to that song HERE. So go check it out, then come back!
Our Prophets And Apostles Today activity will be used in conjunction with The Living Prophets Song aka Our Prophets and Apostles), music found HERE.
I took The Friend PDF’s available online and created a few printing options (also an option that involves no printing!):
The first is to print these as 20×30 sized photos at Costco (or wherever you like to print from).
Print this poster as a 20×30:
(Do not right-click and download this photo! The resolution is too small. See the links below!)
For Costco, you’ll need the JPEG image. For other printers, you will probably want the PDF.
Then print this poster as a 16×20:
(Do not right-click and download this photo! The resolution is too small. See the link below!)
For Costco, you’ll need the JPEG. For other printers, you will probably want the PDF.
To print at home, I recommend this similar activity HERE posted on FB. It looks similar to this:
If you don’t want to print at all, you’ll just need a picture of each of the prophets and apostles (they are sold a the Distribution Center, or in the back of the Gospel Art Book has small pictures or try your library), then read the information about each man and have the kids guess who it is, singing the song in between each one.
Once you have everything printed, cut apart the pictures and I recommend laminating them.
To use in singing time, hang the poster on the chalk board with magnets or tape. Read the information on one of the prophets/apostles. Have the kids guess who it is and cover the square with his picture. Sing the The Living Prophets Song. Repeat until all the pictures have been placed on the poster and the song has been sung 15 times!

Now, go and put your feet up for a wonderful week off!!
