The primary song Faith relates faith to for different tangible items.  The sun, prayer, seeds and a feeling.  This singing time lesson plan focuses on those 4 various ways reinforcing what faith is.

Access these printables at my Resource Library.  Instructions for accessing the Resource Library are found at the bottom of this post.

Print enough copies so each child can receive one square.  Print on card stock, laminate (optional) and cut out.  Check out my list of singing time office supplies HERE if you need.

Place the cut out squares in a bag, bowl or something similar.  Something to be easily drawn out by the Primary children.

Then print these 4 pictures:

Print on card stock and laminate or place in sheet protectors.  The images are meant to be VERY simple and obviously match the cut out squares!

Singing Time Idea

Before Primary, hang each of the 4 large printable pages in the 4 corners of the room.

For the activity, ask the kids the following:
  • If they know the sun will come up tomorrow
  • If they know Heavenly Father hears their prayers
  • If they know plants will grow from seeds
  • If know they have a heart.

Then ask how do they KNOW these things?  They are demonstrating faith!  To have faith is to know something exists, even though we haven’t seen it.

Pass out a square card to each child.  As you and the teachers sing the song, have the children move to the corner in the room that matches the card they received.  Post the words as needed like I do HERE.
 
Camille's Primary Ideas: posting words for singing time, singing time flip charts

Have the children in each corner come up with an action that corresponds with their image and phrase.  For example:

  • Sun: create a large rainbow with hands mimicking the sun’s movement
  • Ears: cup hands over ears then fold arms
  • Seed:  grow a seed using one hand out of the other cupped hand
  • Heart: pulse hands over over heart

Beginning with the sun group, have the group demonstrate their action and sing their phrase.  Repeat with the ears, seed and then heart groups. Repeat again having each group only singing their phrase.

Time permitting, have children move corners by giving them new squares, creating new groups.  Have the new groups sing their new phrases with actions.  Repeat with new groups until time runs out.

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that through faith, we can know Heavenly Father and Jesus are there even though we may never see them.
