I don't know about you all, but I feel like my Primary needs a break from all the REVIEW. The kids really are wonderful, the teachers are wonderful, and they have learned the program songs well. Easter will be a bit of a departure from song review, but for the first Sunday in April I wanted to do something FUN.
I plan to copy the wonderful April Showers umbrella idea HERE - SO cute! I was sure to add in our new song for April - the Primary Presidency picked "I Belong To The Church of Jesus Christ". Especially with our song for the month being a fairly easy one, I plan to concentrate on SPRING for the first Sunday in April.
The songs I plan to include (and the activities to go with them, since that always makes things more fun) are:
- Teach Me to Walk in the Light 177 (because it is part of the Mother's Day medley we will sing in Sacrament)
- Because It's Spring 239
No added actions, will have to teach - possibly make a flip chart
- Birds in the Tree 241
Hand motions as suggested in the songbook
- Happy Song 264
Rhythm sticks to the beat, possibly a toy drum
- Little Purple Pansies 244
- Little Seeds Lie Fast Asleep 243
No added actions, will have to teach this one
- On A Golden Springtime 88
- Popcorn Popping 242
- Rain Is Falling All Around 241
Let on child (a non-aggressive one) "rain" with a spray bottle down the center aisle
- I Belong To The Church of Jesus Christ 77
