Camille's Primary Ideas: posting words for singing time, singing time flip charts

After you have built your origami house, ask the children if they recognize what you folded and take answers.  Write “heaven” on the back with a marker. 

Ask them what it means to make home a heaven on earth.  Write their responses on the board.

Pass out origami paper to each child.  Sing the first phrase as you demonstrate creating the first fold.  Repeat that phrase until all children have the first fold made.

Repeat with the next phrase as you demonstrate the next fold.  Keep singing that phrase until all children have made the second fold.

Continue folding and singing the next phrases until the entire song has been sung and everyone has created their origami house.

Pass out a marker and let everyone write “heaven” on their house. 

Time permitting, have everyone unfold their papers and see if they can re-f0ld their homes as you sing the song in its entirety, without repeating any phrases.

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that we can and should all help to make our home a heaven on earth.
