What’s coming for 2019!

2019 will be an historic year – everything that wasn’t changed a few years ago is going to change now, including the Primary curriculum. That will surely be interesting, especially to Primary teachers like me. Everyone aged 3 to 11 will be taught from the new “Come, Follow Me – for Primary” materials, based on the New Testament (not yet available on lds.org). I’m guessing that there will be a 4-year rotation.

FREE! Downloads to Help Teach Songs for the Children’s Program!

My favorite parts of the Children’s Program are the beautiful songs we get to sing. I’ve been in Primary for about 40 years off and on – mostly on. I don’t know when I participated in my first sacrament meeting presentation, but I don’t remember having them early on when I first started teaching. What I remember is teaching 18 – yes, eighteen! – three-year-olds with an assistant as my first calling in 1974. Fortunately I’m the oldest of 12, so getting little kids to behave is part of my DNA. I “taught,” while the assistant grabbed children and put them back in their seats, over and over. Since Nursery was started, Sunbeam teachers have a MUCH easier time of it, make no mistake. Also, team teaching is great!

This week, I have posted two downloads with visual aids to help teach the program songs. Using a picture with each phrase is my favorite method for teaching new songs, and after being called as a chorister multiple times, I’ve found it to be very effective. I also use many other methods, especially for review.
