Looking for bulletin board ideas for Fall? Looking for visual aids to go with fall holidays and Church history dates? Here’s my FREE download for the season. Includes bulletin board borders, cute little birthday visuals, and cards with the dates. Every month included.
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.
This week I have two FREE downloads for Primary music! First, a kit that can be used for a sharing time or as a singing time activity. Children try to guess song titles with just a few notes. Includes strips to cut up and draw from a container as well as a master list for the pianist. Kids love this, and it’s great for a last-minute activity.
Do you do bulletin boards for your Primary? Do you like to do songs and/or sharing times having to do with Church history or the season of the year? Then this book is for you! There are visual aids that can be printed on letter size paper, and borders that can be printed on 11×17 paper.
Teach children about the Church history dates, holidays, and the season for March, April, and May, and have fun while doing it!
This week I’m giving you a FREE download of a Thanksgiving Turkey decoration! You can use it on your wall or it can be adapted for classroom lessons, singing time, FHE, or sharing time. Example: for sharing, have children write on feathers things they are grateful for, and assemble to make the turkey. For singing time, write song names or numbers on the feathers and have kids “pluck” one to sing a song.
