Every month I like to take one week to review all the songs we’ve learned so far for the program (find more details HERE if you need).  In January it’s obvious that we have none to review.  So instead I like to do a PREVIEW of all the songs we’ll be learning for the year.  And to do this, I present 2022 Sing-Along videos in singing time and the kids LOVE them!

I’ve got several variations below for implementing this lesson plan so hopefully there’s an option that will work for your primary…
 
In past years, I’ve spent HOURS creating sing-along videos.  And in more recent years, others have pitched in and helped me create them (scroll through all the videos we’ve collectively done in past years HERE).  But no more!  Yay!
 

Gospel for Kids app

If you don’t know what the church’s Gospel for Kids app is, you need to!  Check out more details on this app HERE.   I downloaded it to my iPhone for free (just search for Sing Along Hymns).  Can anyone tell me if it is available for Android users yet??  Last year, the app was only available for IOS.
 
UPDATE:  Nathan commented below:
…the Gospel for Kids App was released last May for Android phones and was just updated Jan 5th this year!

The app is SO SLICK!  Especially considering all the work I’ve put in past years to create my own sing-along videos that aren’t nearly as cool as these.
 
Simply download the app, create a playlist (I entitled my playlist 2022 Sing-Along Videos), and search for the primary songs and hymns to add.  Make sure they were in the order you want.
 
Almost every song I needed was there!!  Hit play and it will play the entire playlist!!  The song I Will Walk with Jesus unfortunately isn’t on the app.  But it is on YouTube here if that helps:

Then I recommend watching this on a TV screen.  I have more details on how I do that HERE.

Create a YouTube Playlist

My second variation while still remaining digital is to use a YouTube playlist.  I created this playlist HERE.  It contains all the suggested songs for 2022 Music for Singing Time.
 
I’d suggest downloading these videos to your device.  If you need help downloading videos from YouTube, checkout this tutorial HERE that Rachel shared on FB!! (Read through the comments there for help with Android settings).  A HUGE thank you for this!!
 

Sing-Along Videos Online

There are several sing-along videos on churchofjesuschrist.org HERE.  Just be aware that not all the songs are included.  Download what you need on to your device.

Then continue to hook up your device to the TV the same way as I have suggested above.
 

Sing-Along Flip Charts

Now, not techy? No problem!  You can download and print flip charts for most of these songs from jollyjenn.com or LDSChoristers.  Simply bring the songs on your phone or CD to play.
 
I’d suggest placing each flip chart in plastic sheet protectors and putting them in a binder for easy flipping.  It may be a lot of flip charts but if you plan on using them later in the year, you’ll be saving yourself work later on.
 

Live Musical Performance

And my last option is to ask various ward members to come in and do a musical performance of the songs!  The more variety you have, the better!  Ask a few Young Women, a family, an older couple, the primary presidency, the bishopric, etc.
 

Sing-Along Worksheet

Camille's Primary Ideas: 2022 Sing-Along Worksheet singing time idea

Now, to break up each song, I created this simple worksheet for the kids to fill out as they are watching.

Our program will only have 7 songs for our program.  There is one song in January that repeats in July.  7 songs in our program fits pretty well with our size primary.

Camille's Primary Ideas: 2022 Sing-Along Worksheet singing time idea

Odds are, some of your song choices are different than mine.  I created a blank worksheet with 8 spots to fill in your program songs.

No Printer, No Problem!

Write the name of the songs on the board and as a primary take a vote for if they know them or not.  Or another option is to pass out blank sheets of paper and have the kids write their own names of the songs. The younger kids can simply color a picture.

Resource Library

You can download these at my Resource Library.  Instructions for accessing my Resource Library are at the bottom of this post.  Both the blank version and the filled in version are in the same 2022 Sing-Along Videos document so print what you need.

If you want to edit the blank one to add in your songs, I know how to do it on a Mac (if you know how on a PC, leave a comment!):

  • Download the singing time schedule PDF document
  • Open the document in Preview and click on Tools > Annotate > Text
  • A text box will appear in the middle of the document. Drag and drop it to where you’d like to type text
  • Repeat with more text boxes (can copy and paste works well) until you’ve filled the document

You can also simply hand write the songs before you photo copy (the font I used is Cambria, size 24 if you want to try to edit this with a literal cut and paste ;).

I know that the little Jr. kiddos won’t understand most of the worksheet but if you still want to use it, they will have something to color while you watch the videos ;).  Or if you want, simply omit the worksheet for the little kids as the videos alone will be enough on their own!
 

So, dim the lights, dismiss the pianist ;), pass out a coloring utensil to all the kids, along with a worksheet and push “play.”  I’m going to encourage the kids to sing along as much as they can and if there are songs they don’t know, they can go home and listen to the Digital Playlists that were given at Christmas.  Check out details on my Digital Playlist HERE.

So no matter your method, this is wonderful way to introduce all the program songs for 2022!

  1. I love this! I didn’t find the video for I Will Walk with Jesus from the Friend. Any idea where to get that one? Thank you so much!

  2. Hi Camille! Sure enough, the Gospel for Kids App was released last May for Android phones and was just updated Jan 5th this year! I hadn’t heard about it yet. Thank you for this. It is definitely something I will want to share!
