Every month it’s beneficial take one week to review all the songs you’ve learned so far for the Primary program.  In January it’s pretty obvious that there are none to review.  So instead, PREVIEW your program by watching 2024 singing time sing-along videos in singing time!

Camille's Primary Ideas: 2024 Singing Time Sing-Along Videos

I do this every year in January and it’s a HIGHLY anticipated activity!  The kids love that they get to “watch tv” during singing time using the Gospel for Kids app.  Won’t lie – my pianist and I do to!

NOTE: Several variations are available below for implementing this lesson plan so hopefully there’s an option that works for your Primary…

Sing-Along Videos

If you are unsure about what sing-along videos are, they are exactly what their name suggests.  They are videos that you sing along to!  Typically there is video or pictures that coincide with the song as it’s sung.  In addition, the words are available to help you sing along.

Sing-along videos are a wonderful tool for introducing children to new and unfamiliar songs.  Now, there are several variations for showcasing these sing-along videos in singing time.  Click on the link to quickly jump to that section:

  1. Gospel for Kids App
  2. YouTube Playlist
  3. Church Sing-Along Videos
  4. Sing-Along Flip Charts
  5. Live Musical Performance

Sing-Along Worksheet

Once you have your playlist put together (whatever method you chose above) and a way to display it in singing time, you now need a worksheet for the kids!

I created this simple worksheet for the kids to fill out as they are watching.  It helps break up each song and gives something for those busy hands to do ;).

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

Our Primary is deviating slightly from the list of suggested songs in January.  We’re learning I Will Be What I Believe.

New Sing-Along Editing Capabilities

If your list of songs looks different from mine, no problem!  Enter the NEW editable Primary Program Songs worksheet.  Add your own text to any of the blue areas before printing using Adobe Reader or Preview.

This option to edit is included with Singing Time To-Go PREMIUM subscriptions for 2024!  But if you just need the playlist, keep scrolling for information to purchase it.

What is Singing Time To-Go?

Singing Time To-Go takes all the stress out of planning your weekly singing time lesson plans. The planner is filled in, complete with the current month’s suggested songs, seasonal activities, reviewing for the program, words to post and more! 

Better yet, it’s in one spot to easily download and print.  For more information on Singing Time To-Go, click here:

Purchase the Editable 2024 Sing-Along Worksheet

The editable 2024 Sing-Along Worksheet is also available in my shop for $1.99.

No Printer, No Problem!

Write the name of the songs on the board and as a Primary, vote if the song is familiar or not.  Or another option is to pass out blank sheets of paper and have the kids write their own names of the songs. The younger kids can simply color a picture.

Sing-Along Video Singing Time Idea

So, dim the lights, dismiss the pianist ;), pass out a coloring utensil to all the kids, along with a worksheet and push “play.”  Encourage kids to sing along as much as they can.

If there are songs they don’t know, they can go home and listen to the Digital Playlists that were given at Christmas

Know that some of Jr. Primary won’t understand the worksheet but it still gives them something to color as they watch the videos.  Or simply omit the worksheet for the younger kids – the videos alone are enough on their own.
 
So no matter your method, this is a wonderful way to introduce all the program songs for 2024!

Sing-Along Video Options

1. Gospel for Kids App

My favorite way to show sing-along videos in singing time is by using the Gospel for Kids app. It’s a Church-owned app with no advertisements which makes it perfect to use in Primary!
Camille's Primary Ideas: Gospel for Kids app
The app is SO SLICK!  Simply:
  • Download the app
  • Create a playlist (I entitled my playlist 2024 Sing-Along Videos),
  • Search for the Primary songs and hymns to add
  • Make sure they are in the order you want.
Almost every song I need is there!!  Hit play and it will play the entire playlist!!  Our Primary is learning I Will Be What I Believe in January.  Unfortunately isn’t on the app.  But you can find it on YouTube:

Then I recommend projecting your 2024 sing-along videos a TV screen.  This post contains more details on how to do that if you need help.

2. YouTube Playlist

Camille's Primary Ideas: 2024 Singing Time Sing-Along Videos
The second digital variation to display sing-along videos is to create a YouTube playlist.  I created this 2024 Music for Singing Time playlist.  It contains all the suggested songs for 2024 Music for Singing Time.
 
TIP: Download these videos to your device.  If you need help downloading videos from YouTube, checkout  this tutorial that Rachel shared on FB!! (Read through the comments there for help with Android settings).  A HUGE thank you for this!!
 
A YouTube playlist is best if you have several songs that are not found on the Gospel for Kids app.

3. Church Sing-Along Videos

Camille's Primary Ideas: 2024 Singing Time Sing-Along Videos

There are also several sing-along videos on the Church’s website.  Just be aware that not all Primary songs may not available.  Download what you need on to your device.

Then continue to hook up your device to the TV the same way as suggested above.

4. Sing-Along Flip Charts

TIP: Place each flip chart in plastic sheet protectors and put them in a binder for easy flipping.  It may be a lot of flip charts but if you plan on using them later in the year, you’ll be saving yourself work later on.

5. Live Musical Performance

And the last option is to ask various ward members to come in and do a musical performance of the songs!  The more variety you have, the better including:

  • few Young Women
  • a family
  • an older couple
  • the Primary presidency
  • the bishopric
  • etc.
