Check out these singing time ideas for teaching the Primary song, I Will Walk with Jesus in singing time! My favorite is definitely teaching simplified ASL with scarves. But there’s bound to be ideas to accommodate your Primary’s learning style and needs!
My ABSOLUTE favorite recommendation for teaching I Will Walk with Jesus is using this ASL. I especially love the visual it creates for the lines in the song that say, “I will walk with Jesus, and He will walk with me.” Check out more details HERE.
Teach I Will Walk with Jesus using Handbells
Merry Bells has a completely FREE digital download for this song! If you own a set of handbells, try this bell chart in singing time!
Now, this idea is CLEVER! I wish I was more clever! Luckily, there are others out there who share that talent! It utilizes straws … kind of similar to I’ll Walk with You that uses spoons HERE. Watch the video here with details:
Build a Body
Here’s another very CLEVER idea shared HERE on the PML FB group. If you’re not on FB, here are the details along with the photo:
We are building a simple body learning the first verse of “I Will Walk With Jesus.” The words coordinate so well with the body parts that I had to share!-Jesus walked in wisdom (head = knowledge)-Jesus grew in truth (grow spiritually, just like we physically grow taller)-He showed love to God and man while in his youth (love = use arms to hug)-Jesus wants to guide me (follow with legs)-Jesus shows the way (He steps first and we follow)-Calling me to come and walk with him each day (feet = walk)
Sharla Dance has several ideas HERE that incorporates how this song moves (soft and gentle) into the teaching method.
