I love to take the last week in March to prep my Primary kids for General Conference! Easily incorporate these General Conference singing time ideas into your Primary! Then enjoy a weekend off from teaching … you deserve it!
1. Latter-day Prophet Actions
My all-time favorite Primary song to teach this time of year is Latter-day Prophets! You just can’t beat the interactive actions that also tell a little bit about each prophet.
2. Living Prophets Song
Once we’ve learned all about past prophets, it’s time to move on to the current ones! This song is ever-changing so it’s always a fun challenge!
The Living Prophets Song is set to the tune of The Books in the Book of Mormon.
General Conference Video Demonstration
Check out my General Conference singing time video demonstration video here:
You can also find this video on my YouTube channel HERE. I’d love it if you’d like and subscribe!
It’s also fun to pass out these General Conference “singo” sheets to play as you sing the Living Prophets Song.
Or simply send them home along with m&m’s. Playing is easy! Cover the speaker on the sheet when they speak in General Conference. After General Conference is over, eat the candy!
4. General Conference Singing Time Challenge
Bruce shared on the PML FB group that he likes to:
Give them [the Primary children] the assignment to make a careful list of all the Primary songs that get sung in conference – and for bonus points, any hymns they’ve learned for the annual Primary program. During the first singing time after conference, go over the list and see how many children heard them all. And then sing some of them.
Someone also commented to also list any Primary songs mentioned during the talks given at General Conference.
Such a simple way to get children listening!!
5. GC Challenge Printable
Heather took the challenge one more step and created this printable:
Download Heather’s printable. Or it’s also available in the Resource Library. Access my printables at my Resource Library. Instructions for accessing my Resource Library are found at the bottom of this post.
6. Susan Fitch
Susan Fitch’s activities may be fun just to send home with your Primary to help them engage with General Conference!
7. Coloring Books
If your Primary handed out coloring books at Christmas (like mine did), this is a great time to remind kids to pull them out to color as they listen to General Conference!
8. Coloring Pages
The Church also has these coloring pages of all the prophets and apostles. Make sure to share these with your Primary as well for another General Conference activity!
9. March 2022 Friend
The March 2022 Friend magazine also has some fun General Conference activities.
Hopefully there are enough suggestions here for you to create a General Conference themed singing time! Help your Primary kids prepare to listen to our church leaders during General Conference!
