Teach I Feel My Savior’s Love using these interactive scarf actions.  By using scarf actions, children can relate the words to the movement in addition to understanding the flow of the song!  It’s a perfect combination!

Linda shared her idea on the PML FB page.  I love it!  Her version includes the 1st 2 verses.  So I simply added actions and printables for verses 3 and 4.  But because I’m slightly OCD, I wanted all the visuals to match so my printables include all 4 verses.

I created the visuals mostly using Susan Fitch’s artwork.  The printables print 2 to a page:

Print on card stock and cut in half. I recommend using magnetic tape to hang them on the board (my latest and most favorite singing time find!) to do so.  Find more details about magnetic tape.

Each child needs a scarf or something similar (square of light fabric, bandana, etc.).  Find more details on my favorite scarves from Amazon.

I Feel My Savior's Love Singing Time Idea

Before Primary, place the scarf action printables on the board.  

Anytime you have some sort of actions, the easiest way to introduce the song is to simply demonstrate them and have the children watch.  Make sure you and the teachers sing.  Post the words using this flip chart format.

Scarf Actions Video

This is a quick video demonstration of the scarf actions:

Chorus:

  • He knows I will follow him: scarf up and down in front from one side to the other like a wave
  • Give all my life to him: Bunch up scarf in hands and move forward like you are giving it away
  • I feel my Savior’s love: Infinity sign
  • The love he freely gives me: Throw scarf up in the air and catch it

1st Verse:

  • I feel my Savior’s love: Infinity sign (His love is forever)
  • In all the world around me: Move scarf in big circles
  • His spirit warms my soul: Wrap scarf around shoulders
  • Through everything I see: Hold scarf by top corners over face and then draw it downward so you can see eyes

2nd Verse:

  • I feel my Savior’s love: Infinity sign
  • Its gentleness enfolds me: Wrap scarf around hand
  • And when I kneel to pray: Gather scarf in hands and hold like praying while bending knees
  • My heart is filled with peace: Move scarf overhead in half circles

3rd Verse:

  • I feel my Savior’s love: Infinity sign
  • And know that he will bless me: Touch scarf to temple (know)
  • I offer him my heart: Scrunch scarf and hold over heart
  • My shepherd he will be: Put scarf over head to represent shepherd headwear

4th Verse:

  • I’ll share my Savior’s love: Trade scarf with a partner
  • By serving others freely: Create a rag and “dust” (as if working)
  • In serving I am blessed: Hold scarf by top corners and wave up and down (praising)
  • In giving I receive: Trade scarf back with partner

 After demonstrating, ask the children if they remember any of the actions and take answers.

Then pass out a scarf to each child and teach the actions (beginning with the chorus).  Time permitting, gradually remove the pages from the board.

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that when we choose to follow the Savior, we feel the love that he freely gives us.

No Printer? No Problem!

This activity can EASILY be accomplished without using any printed visuals!  Just make sure you know all the actions (or jot down some simple notes for yourself).

  1. This is amazing!! I’m so happy to now have scarf actions for all four verses…and I love all of your scarf actions (especially trade scarf with a partner in verse four!) So fun:)

  2. Hi Camille,
    Thanks so much for sharing all of these wonderful ideas! Question for you, do you usually run through all of the verses of a song when you are teaching it for the first time? If it is a song for the primary program, do you sing all the verses or just focus on one?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Aspen!

      It really depends on the song and the activity. For this song, I would do all the verses together because the scarf activity is the same for all the verses. But, for instance, Nephi’s Courage, I would break it up. The first 2 verses of that song are very similar so I have a similar activity for those verses and would teach them both on the same Sunday. But for the 3rd verse, I have a completely different activity so would teach it on a different Sunday. I hope that helps!

      ~Camille
