In case you aren’t already aware, there is no singing time on Easter Sunday. That means no Singing time 2 weeks in a row. First General Conference directly followed by Easter. But if you plan your singing time in April accordingly, you have nothing to worry about!
The First Presidency’s directive for Easter Sunday is Sacrament meetings only, with a Christ-centered focus. More details are in this Church News article HERE. It states:
To commemorate the Atonement and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will conduct only sacrament meetings in wards and branches on Easter Sunday, April 9, with worship services — including messages and music — to center on the Savior.
So enjoy the day off of singing time! Instead, spend it with your family while reflecting on the Savior’s death, crucifixion and miraculous atonement!

I saw your flip chart for “Jesus Has Risen”, but can’t seem to find it to print

Scroll down to the heading that says “singing time idea” and the link is right underneath it. I hope that helps!
Our stake is holding Stake Conference in April so that means three Sundays of no Singing Time in April. I’m not sure how to handle less time to teach the songs. I understand the reason for Easter Sunday being Sacrament Mtg only but I also feel disappointed. I absolutely love being with the children!
That IS so hard! On the bright side, at least there are 5 Sundays in April so you still have 2 other Sundays. I’d definitely focus on your song for April and then reviewing what you’ve learned for the year.
