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.

FREE: Guess the Primary Song Sharing Time Kit!

What’s a sharing time kit? Well….

K-SONG

Guess the Primary Song Sharing Time Kit

The first time I was a Primary president, it was in a small Ward in a tiny town in Oregon with a little Primary of about 40 children. I had one counselor and a secretary who seldom if ever showed up, so my other counselor and myself were often stuck without any planned sharing time. We also had a few teachers who would just not show up without notice.
