April 2020 Home Centered Singing Time Schedule


Even though church has been cancelled, there’s no reason why singing time at home cannot continue on!  So bring on April 2020 home centered singing time!  But how singing time looks definitely varies between primaries and families!  Don’t get discouraged if your version varies from someone else’s!

Camille's Primary Ideas: April Singing 2020 Time Schedule Cover

With no actual singing time to teach at church, I’ve been struggling to find my place as a primary music leader within my own ward, as a mom of primary children and as a primary music blogger!  I seriously feel like a fish out of water.

I’ve seen weekly FB lives created by primary music leaders within wards, YouTube videos shared, and others simply letting singing time be taken over by the parents.  Is there a right or wrong way to handle our unique situation right now?  No way!  With the guidance of your primary president, bishop and the spirit, do what’s best for you and your family!

For April, I’ve simply put together a few ideas that I will be sharing with my own primary then implementing with my own children at home.  It’s what I feel the most comfortable with, makes me feel like I’m magnifying my calling  all while causing me the least amount of stress!  Hopefully these ideas will help spark something that will work for your primary and family!

I’ve opted to not fill this out this month.  I didn’t feel it was necessary and am trying not to feel overwhelmed with our current situation anyway.  So here’s how mine looks this month…

April's Music for Singing Time

Camille's Primary Ideas: Easter Hosanna singing time lesson plan

One of April’s suggested songs for singing time includes Easter Hosanna.  You can find my lesson plan HERE for teaching this primary song.  This is a beautiful song to learn for Easter!

Camille's Primary Ideas: When We're Helping singing time idea

You can find my lesson plan for When We’re Helping  HERE.  This is another song suggestion for April.  This makes for a great wiggle song!!  And with kids home all the time now, this song seems really inspired!  I need my own kids to step up and help more now that we’re all at home all the time!!

Love One Another Singing Time Lesson Plan Idea

Love One Another is also a song suggestion for April.  See my lesson plan for it HERE.  Again, we might all be getting a little stir crazy and need a lesson on cultivating more love at home, haha!

Camille's Primary Ideas Easter Singing Time Round-Up

Make sure you also check out my Easter singing time lesson plans HERE.  I like take a week off every month to sing something seasonal and April means Easter!  My favorite thing to do is to take articles from the Friend and turn them into singing time activities!  I’ve found one from April 2020’s Friend and will have more details next week!  You seriously won’t regret having one!
