Our primary is singing a couple songs for stake conference in two weeks, which we are just now learning. Because time is so short, I made a fun handout for the children to take home. It's simply a smaller scan of the visuals I made to teach with in Primary. I'm hoping they will go over the song in Family Home Evenings and be ready to sing it with the rest of the stake when the time comes. "When He Comes Again" (CS 82) is one of my favorite songs, so I'm glad we get the chance to sing it.
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
