I LOVE LOVE LOVE using activities the the Friend in singing time!  There is another gold mine in the April 2020 Friend that is easily adaptable into a singing time lesson!  Perfect for home-centered singing time as well!

Camille's Primary Ideas: The First Easter singing time from the Friend

The original article is from the April 2020 Friend found HERE.  The short story is written perfectly to fit in related primary songs!  Check it out:

  • After Jesus Christ died, his body was laid in a tomb. Sing: He Sent His Son p. 34
  • On Sunday, women came to care for His body. They found His tomb open and empty. Sing: He Died That We Might Live Again p. 65
  • Angels said that Jesus was alive again! This was the first Easter. Sing: Hosanna p. 66
  • Jesus visited His followers and showed them His resurrected body. Sing: Beautiful Savior p. 62
  • He ate with them and taught them before returning to Heavenly Father. Sing: Did Jesus Really Live Again? p. 64
  • Jesus saved us from death and sin. He loves us! Sing: Jesus Has Risen p. 70

Simply cut out the images from the magazine.  Then read the story using the related images and sing the song after each image.  To sing the songs, sing along to the the music from the church’s website HERE or the Sing-Along app (more details can be found HERE) although it works only with IOS.

The First Easter Printable

For whatever reason (I’m sure it’s me!), I can never get these double layout pages to print correctly when I download them.  Also, I didn’t want to print all the blue background.  So I adjusted the printable to be much more printer friendly!  I also added where the songs are to be inserted:

  1. My primary doesn’t know half of the songs that you use for singing time.
    I read your Easter singing time you did with the story from the friend. My primary does not know any of the songs you used. I spend most of my singing time teaching songs that are listed for the year from the general presidency. I feel like I am not having them enjoy singing time.

    1. Hi Alby!

      I like to spend half of my time (2 weeks a month) learning the 3 suggested songs for the month. Then I like to take 1 week off and do something seasonal or holiday related (like Easter). These weeks I like to pick unfamiliar songs. So I make sure to post the words like I do here:

      And if I want more help with unfamiliar songs, we’ll sing along to them on my phone and speaker using the Gospel for Kids app.

      Then the last week of every month I typically review all the songs we’ve learned for the year for the upcoming program. I like to try and do a fun activity these weeks. This method gives me lots of variety and we are able to sing TONS of songs, sing all the suggested songs each month all while preparing for the upcoming program. It’s worked really well for me. My post here may help give you more details if it helps:

      I hope that helps some.
