This is my ABSOLUTE favorite lesson plan posted on my website!  There’s something about the way it ties the spiritual message in such a visual way!  Anyway, if you are looking for a wonderful way to teach When I Am Baptized, I highly suggest this singing time lesson plan!

Camille's Primary Ideas: When I Am Baptized Singing Time Lesson Plan Idea

My original lesson plan is HERE.  It is perfect for teaching in singing time.  However, if your primary is virtual or home centered, never fear!  I’ve got a few modifications below!  I also have a demonstration video there if it helps so go check it out!

Home Centered or Virtual

I suggest you have your primary children make wands OR pass them out either after sacrament meeting or distribute them to children’s homes. 

You can also pass out materials for children to make their own.  Check out my post HERE on wands with ideas for for homemade ones or where I purchase mine.

Wands for singing time

But if you don’t have time for that, children can also use a cloth, scarf or simply their hands.

To start, share the sing along video of When I Am Baptized:

Watch the video, When I Am Baptized: 

After watching the video, discuss the 3 ways in which this song is about rainbows and rain:

  • Talks about rainbows and rain: Have the children lift up their wand or hand as they listen for the words rainbows and rain.
  • Sounds like rainbows and rain: Sing the verses smooth with long sounds, also known as legato (like a rainbow) and the chorus choppy with short sounds also known as staccato (like raindrops). Have the children move their wands or hand smoothly when they sing the verses and then choppy when they sing the chorus.
  • Moves like rainbows and rain: Have the children draw a big rainbow with their wand or hand as they sing each phrase in the verses. Notice that the notes go up and then the notes go down – just like they are drawing a rainbow!
    When they sing the chorus, have them move their hand or wand up or down as the notes move up and down. These notes move just like raindrops all over the sky!

Lynsie also shared the videos she created for her primary using this lesson plan here if it helps:
