Is your primary suffering from a little spring fever? Use this action poem entitled Time to Be Reverent from the May 2021 Friend magazine to get wiggles out before you begin singing time, nursery or any other time in primary!
This poem found HERE on the church’s website is darling with simple actions! Even Sunbeams can follow along! Your primary will enjoy the simple movements as they prepare to be reverent.
To help with the visuals, I enlarged the 8 action images with the corresponding poem to be on individual pages:
I suggest keeping reverence reinforcements in a “Reverence Binder.” This way you can refer to it any time you need a reverence re-boot!
Or I created a 20×30 poster that you can place on your bulletin board. Print it at Costco HERE or your favorite printer!
Access my printables at my Resource Library. Instructions for accessing my Resource Library are found at the bottom of this post.
No Printer? No Problem!
Teach the actions without any printable! Easy! The kids will love it either way! Simply jot down the poem (or pull the page out of your Friend magazine) to help you remember it as you teach!
What tips and tricks have you used that help remind your primary it’s time to be reverent in singing time? Leave a comment with your ideas!

We created a reverence jar to resemble Moses’ burning bush. Then we reminded the kids that there are some places that are more sacred and reverent, like Primary. We focus on pointing out the positive actions we see from the kids and reward them by putting a cotton ball in the jar. The cotton balls are supposed to be like hot coals that are burning white when they are at their hottest temperature. Once the jar is filled up, we will get to celebrate by having a movie and popcorn in Primary. (We try to make these fall on special 5th Sundays.)
That sounds so fun, Jennifer! I’ll bet the primary loves it! Thanks for sharing.
