How is reviewing for your upcoming primary program going?  If you haven’t started, it’s not too late!  With my primary program review, you can jump in at almost any point (well, up until your program I suppose!).  This post is a continuation of my Restoration Review – a singing time review for your primary program!

Camille's Primary Ideas: The Restoration Review Weeks 3, 4 & 5

If you missed the first half of this review, make sure to check it out HERE.  It covers:

  • Week 1 Joseph Studied the Words (helping to memorize words)
  • Week 2 The First Vision (practicing standing, sitting, starting & stopping together)

In a nutshell, this review activity covers 4-5 weeks and will help you review for your upcoming primary program.  But it can also be condensed as needed.  Review any songs each week.  Pick different songs to work on or review the same songs each week.

Okay!  So let’s pick up where we left off!

Week 3

Post the pages for “Moroni Instructs Joseph” on the board.  Read the instructions to the primary.

Week 3 Activity

Once the pages are on the board, move into the activity that goes along with “Moroni Instructs Joseph.”

Dynamics to practice:

  • For breathing, use a slinky to demonstrate holding a phrase (optional) or simply conduct as such
  • Practice beginning and ending the song together by bringing everyone in together and ending the notes together by pinching your fingers
  • Sing quietly or loudly (but never shouting) and indicate by leading the primary with your arms – bigger leading means singing louder, smaller leading means singing softer. Can teach what p (piano for soft) and f (forte for loud) mean
  • Most songs will be sung legato or smoothly.  Practice singing legato but also sing a few phrases staccato or choppy

Week 4

Post the pages from the previous weeks then add the pages for “Translating the Plates.”  Read the instructions to the primary.

Week 4 Activity

Senior: Translate the song titles then practice singing the translated songs so the Holy Ghost can be felt.

Camille's Primary Ideas: The Restoration Review Weeks 3, 4 & 5

Each song has a page to translate.  See if you can figure out this song title below by using the key above ;).

Camille's Primary Ideas: The Restoration Review Weeks 3, 4 & 5

If you need to create your own songs to translate, I created this activity using the Wingdings font in caps.

Junior: Match pictures to song titles (similar to the game memory – I suggest keeping matches without the song titles facing outward to move the activity along quicker) then practice singing the translated songs so the Holy Ghost can be felt.

TIP: If your primary is combined, use the Sr. activity provided.  Pair older kids with younger kids to help them with the activity if needed.  Time permitting, play memory.

Week 5

This week is the final run-through of the program.  The activity can also be used in singing time after the program.  Practice run-through days tend to be a little chaotic, especially if you are practicing in the chapel. 

Post the pages from the previous weeks then add the pages for Publication of The Book of Mormon. Read the instructions to the primary.

Week 5 Activity

Use a smiley balloon on a long string in the chapel (if available) to help encourage singing.  More singing = the balloon goes higher.  Less singing = the balloon goes lower.  Try to keep the balloon at the ceiling.  Check out more details HERE.

If you want to keep kids busy as you run through the program, have them color sacrament meeting programs.  This would also make for a fun Saturday practice run-through activity!

For singing time after the program, read comments from the congregation.  Check out my comment card HERE.  Then pass out a treat (optional) and sing favorite primary songs.
