I like to do introductions for the first Sunday in January during singing time. We have new little Sunbeams coming in and new little Jr. primary kids who have now bumped up to Sr. primary. Then I also like to introduce the new Come Follow Me theme!
I don’t know about your primary but the first Sunday with all the changes tends to be a little chaotic. So I steer clear from teaching new program songs. Rather I like to ease everyone into the new year. And introductions are a great way to do that!
In fact, I don’t even start teaching January’s song until the 3rd week in January! Next week I’ll bring in my Sing-Along videos and give everyone a nice preview of what we’ll be learning throughout the year. More to come for 2020 but you can see what I’ve done in years past HERE.
So the first Sunday of the new year in singing time will be themed around introductions. We introduce everyone to everyone and then introduce the new Come Follow Me theme!
To introduce the primary kids, we sing the song Here We Are Together using my simple singing time idea HERE.
I hope to have enough time to introduce my Interactive Bookshelf for The Book of Mormon afterward.
My kids are pretty familiar with the bookshelf as we did it last year but with The Books in The New Testament. Find more details on my Book of Mormon version HERE.
This will double as our bulletin board for the year as well.
Then I noticed in The Friend magazine for January 2020, there was this cute “Bright Idea” on page 14 found HERE. I thought it would be great to print out and place around the interactive poster to fill the space around the interactive poster.
Along with article this HERE on page 2. But I only want the right side of the page layout. I can’t figure out how to get the layout to download and print on 2 pages.
If you can’t figure it out either, I’ve got it in my Resource Library. Instructions for accessing my Resource Library are at the bottom of this post.
There are so many wonderful ideas floating around for this first singing time in Sunday. I’ve had a hard time not second guessing what I’ve chosen!
These printables are filed on my Resource Library page under Category Title > Interactive Bookshelf > The Books in the Book of Mormon.
