The Miracle of Easter


Another wonderful Easter singing time activity from The Friend!  It’s called The Miracle of Easter.

I found it in the April 2019 edition HERE.  My plan is to use this lesson plan on Easter Sunday but I’ve heard a few wards are only have sacrament meeting on that Sunday so make sure to plan accordingly!
I would suggest simply removing the page directly from The Friend magazine itself to hang on the chalkboard (just as a simple visual).  Then have the kids read from a cheat sheet (below) at the microphone that has all the content.
If you need to print, I couldn’t figure out how to get the one online to print onto 2 regular sheets of paper so I created a version that you can print at home.
If you want to do a big poster, you can download and print my 20×30 JPEG version (for Costco) or my PDF version.
It’s pretty straight forward to implement in primary.  Read about each day, the scripture and sing the song.  I’ll have kids come up and read from the microphone just for fun (if they can’t read, either me, a teacher or a Sr. primary child will help them).
**For large primaries, assign each class a day & scripture and have them stand and read their assignment together.  For small primaries, assign each child a day and scripture.  For combined Jr. and Sr. primaries, assign an older child with a younger child and the pair can come up to the microphone and have the older child help the younger child read the part.

I created a cheat sheet that I’ll have at the microphone.  It’s in a document that you can alter in case you want to sing different songs.  I will be reviewing all our 2019 program songs we’ve learned so far this year so I swapped out a few of the songs (this is not on the document so you’ll have to make this change if you want).  I traded:

  • The Miracle for Tell Me the Stories of Jesus on day 4
  • Did Jesus Really Live Again for Jesus Has Risen on day 7
  • When He Comes Again for I Feel My Savior’s Love on Day 8

Then to break up the singing, I thought I’d show a few videos to the songs listed that I haven’t taught this year in primary including:

  • He Sent His Son found HERE
  • The Miracle found HERE
  • Gethsemane found HERE

Find details HERE about viewing sing-along videos in primary if you need.

Or another option is to pass out egg shakers (ya know – it being Easter and all!) like I have HERE and have them shake to the rhythm of the each song.  Just to provide some movement.

To get through all of this, you’ll have to move quickly between each of the days.  Before primary, you may want to pass out assignments to kids so they already know who is coming up.  I’d recommend cutting up a 2nd cheat sheet to pass out to kids as they come into primary.  Or, spread this out over 2 Sundays.

I’ll also be implementing this lesson plan at home for our Family Home Evening Lesson!  A double win!!
