Camille's Primary Ideas: Easter Sing-a-Story Primary Singing Time Ideas

I LOVE being able to link various themed Primary songs together in a story format!  Especially the Easter story which is the greatest stories ever told!

This Easter Sing-A-Story comes from The Children’s Songbook Companion and Testimony of Easter from the March 1986 Friend magazine (written by Pat Graham – go figure!).

Assemble the Testimony of Easter Book

Place all the pages in sheet protectors with the picture pages and their corresponding song titles back to back.  
 
This is a breakdown of what goes back to back:
  1. Heavenly Father and Jesus – He Sent His Son p. 34
  2. Jesus buried in the tomb – Did Jesus Really Live Again? p. 64
  3. The empty tomb – Jesus Has Risen p. 70
  4. The Nephites surrounding Jesus – Easter Hosanna p. 68
  5. The Resurrected Savior – He Died That We Might Live Again p. 65

The actual words of the story go into their own sheet protector with nothing behind them.

Place the cover sheet and the words to the story in a 3-ring binder.  This way it’s able to be propped up on a table as you sing.

Note that the images/song titles do not initially go into the binder as that is part of the activity.

If you keep all the pages in order as they are printed, everything will fall into place where it should go.  

Post the Lyrics using Flip Charts

Make sure to post the words using these flip charts for any unfamiliar songs. 

Camille's Primary Ideas: posting words for singing time, singing time flip charts

Easter Sing-A-Story Singing Time Idea

Before Primary, hang all the picture/song titles pages on the board using magnets.  Have the pictures facing out with the song titles hidden.
 
Tell the Primary you are going to read them an Easter story.  Each of the pictures of the book are on the board.  They must choose the picture that best matches what is read in the story.
HINT: the bolded words in the story relate directly to the associated picture.
 
Read the title of the story and then the first page.  Then go over to the board and have the Primary choose an image that best goes with the story.
 
Remove the page to reveal the song on the back.  Place it into your story book binder and sing the Primary song on the back of the picture.
 
Continue on with the story until all the pictures are removed, the songs are sung and your story book is put together in order.  
 
Time permitting, read the completed book with all the pictures.

Sing-A-Story Variation for Younger Children

For Junior Primary, simply read the book all put together.  Then sing the corresponding songs to each picture.  Or, post the pictures on the board with the pictures facing out and the song on the back.  That way they can easily pick the correct picture to place into the book.

Additional Movement

Additionally add movement actions to provide movement as you sing each song.  Some ideas include:

  1. Camille, is there a place to get this Easter Poster all as 1 piece, rather than it being cut apart. I have the ability to make large posters and would like to do it that way if possible.
