Our primary is singing "I Know that My Savior Loves Me" in Sacrament Meeting on the 21st. In order to inform parents, and to remind the children to practice at home with their CD's, I made a hand hand-out. You can download a blank one here. To add the ribbon, cut 2 slits low on the pointer finger with an exacto knife, slide ribbon or yarn through, and tie.
I am currently the primary chorister in my ward. It's a fun and fabulous opportunity to learn the beautiful primary music, be creative in a unique teaching environment, and feel the Spirit as we teach gospel truths through song. Three of my five daughters are in primary, which I love, because I can happily sing these songs I love right along with them each week.
I find I have the most success with the children when I follow this recipe:
1. Pray about the kids, pray about teaching the songs 2. Learn the songs backwards and forwards. I rarely use the book when I'm singing in Primary because of the importance of step #3. 3. Eye contact, eye contact, eye contact 4. Smile and sing with love 5. Bear testimony of gospel truths 6. Have fun
