Singing Time Plan: July #1

Happy 4th of July!  I hope you're planning a wonderful holiday.  Let me help plan your Singing Time for the following day. :)

  Junior Primary

Follow the footsteps
"I Feel My Savior's Love"  (p. 74) 
Partner scarves.  Partners hold long scarves and move them up and down, then side to side with the music.  I have pictures in my previous post here

"Come, Follow Me"  (Hymns #116) 
Follow the footsteps.  Cut out paper footsteps and tape them to the ground in a circle around the room.  On the walls along your path, have pictures of the Savior. Invite the children to follow you, stepping on the footsteps. 

"The Holy Ghost"  (p. 105) 
Arm circles. Stand and sway side to side with the music--swing your arms right, left, big circle around, left, right, big circle around.

"I Know That My Savior Loves Me"      

  Senior Primary

First letter fill-in
"I Feel My Savior's Love"  (p. 74) 
Rhythm stick roll.  With a partner, softly roll rhythm sticks back and forth.  Find a more detailed description in my post here.

"Come, Follow Me"  (Hymns #116) 
Melody map.  I can take no credit for this awesome activity!  I took the idea straight from Sharla Dance, and you can read her explanation here.  I made my own chart to mimic one of hers.

"Tell Me the Stories of Jesus"  (p. 57) 
Scripture search.  Sing verse 2 and ask the children to find the story in the scriptures, using the topical guide. 

"The Holy Ghost"  (p. 105) 
First letter fill-in.  Write the first letters of every word of the song on the board, in order.  (See picture at right).  Pass out chalk and ask the children to come fill in the words as you sing. They don't have to go in order, though, which they'll enjoy. :)

Happy singing!
