In Februrary’s Come Follow Me lessons, we learned all about the Liahona. I thought a Liahona singing time review would be appropriate this week!
I’ve seen several of the Liahonas that everyone has been making for singing time and they are so fun! They can be used with this lesson plan OR I landed on an amazing printable to simplify it!
iheartprimarymusic.com shared this darling printable HERE. Thank you! I wasn’t up to creating an actual Liahona this week!
I printed mine on gold card stock, cut out, laminated and cut out again. Then I placed a brad in the middle so the circle spins.
If you have an actual Liahona, place strips of paper inside with the instructions that contain where the songs are hidden. Then pull one out at a time.
Liahona Singing Time Review
You need 7 songs (or a less if you split up the verses which I’ve done) written on small pieces of paper and tape. I opted for Post-it notes. Here’s what’s written on my post-it notes:
- The Iron Rod hymn #274
- Nephi’s Courage verse 1 p. 120
- Nephi’s Courage verse 2 p. 120
- Nephi’s Courage verse 3 p. 120
- My Heavenly Father Loves Me p. 228
- I Will Walk with Jesus
- Dare to Do Right p. 158
The last 2 songs are what we’re learning next month and we may not have time for them. That’s why I haven’t split up those verses. My Heavenly Father Loves Me is a song suggestion this week from Come Follow Me – Primary.
Before primary, place the Post-it notes around the room as indicated on the printable (door, podium, piano, window, microphone, chair, chalkboard).
During singing time I suggest you manage and read from the Liahona. Select a good singer (for larger primaries, select a classes) to look for the next clue (either from their seats if you keep the clues in plain sight or they can walk around – depending on the size of your primary).
When the songs are found, sing it. I suggest posting words like I do HERE to any of the songs that may be unfamiliar.
Liahona Song Activities
I have a few things we’ll do when we sing each of the songs:
- The Iron Rod: actions found HERE with pencils
- Nephi’s Courage: puppets with actions on chorus HERE
- My Heavenly Father Loves Me: visuals found HERE
- I Will Walk with Jesus: sing-along video HERE* or ASL actions HERE if your primary has already learned them
- Dare to Do Right: sing-along video HERE or it’s also on the sing-along app*
*I have an iPad that I’ll bring to view the sing-along songs. But a simple flip chart would be easy too. These are songs we’ll be singing next month.
If you have other ideas for reviewing in singing time using a Liahona, please leave a comment!
