Because I'm having a baby in June and because our Primary already knows If the Savior Stood Beside Me pretty well, this month I'll be teaching When He Comes Again in addition to the song our Ward Music Leader asked the Primary to sing for Easter Sunday - Did Jesus Really Live Again?
We'll use a flip chart I found HERE and an idea from Sugardoodle to learn When He Comes Again. It'll go something like this:
In Jr. singing time I'll gave the children a piece of the flip chart (there are 12 pages for the 2
verses) - but not in order.
They'll look at their pictures (and
words if they can read) and then we'll sing the first line and the person
who thinks he/she has it raises a hand and I'll have him/her come and hold up the picture. Then we'll sing from the beginning including the next
line and the person who has that one comes up, etc.
For the 2nd
verse - I'll take away all the first verse pages and have all the 2nd verse
page holders come to the front and get in the order they thought it
might go. Then we'll sing the 2nd verse and see if they
were right. If they weren't, they'll rearrange. Then we'll sing it again.
Sr. singing time - I'll give the first verse
out in the wrong order to 6 children. Some others who don't have
pictures will rearrange the kids holding the pictures how they think it should be - they'll have the
length of time it takes to play the song on the piano. Then they'll hide
their pictures from everyone and we'll sing the verse. Then they'll show the
pictures again and decide whether this was their final answer. And then we'll sing the verse with the pictures showing.
We'll do the same for the 2nd verse.
