What do you think? Do you like these subway art style posters better than the others? I kind of think I do. Maybe I’ll do more of these soon!

Since this one has all the words for both verses of this song, it would be great for a reminder for the older kids! You could teach with this poster as well if you cut it up and built it like a puzzle, or you could cut blank paper in the shapes of the phrases and cover them as you learn it.

I started teaching this song today in our primary. I started by telling them the story of how Joseph Smith got the Gold Plates. I found this little illustrated story from the Friend on the Church website and sort of used it as a guide. Then we went through each line me singing and them repeating it back to me. We spent a minute talking about what “confide” means.

Then I told them that we were going to learn some Italian. We talked about dynamics and how they tell you what volume to sing in music. In Junior Primary we learned piano, forte, and mezzo piano and forte. I showed them how I could conduct to show them how loud or soft to sing by raising and lowering my left hand. I showed them were forte was first and then where each of the other levels were. Then we sang it through a couple of times and then I picked a kid to come up and lead the volume. I had them show us where the different levels were like a little quiz. We left it there in Junior Primary, and in Senior Primary we went on to talk about fortissimo and pianissimo and ended with crescendos and decrescendos. We sang through the song a lot! And they were happy to do it for the challenge of following the leader. I hope your April songs are going well!


April Singing Time Posters!

The theme for April is the Restoration! I will be teaching The Golden Plates to my primary, but I made a couple of other posters for some songs that fit this theme as well. As you’ll see below, they have the same background picture which I think could work for a lot of songs about The Restoration, so I included a Word Document of that image as well so you can put your own song title on it! Hopefully that will work for a lot of you!

My Heavenly Father Loves Me { A Poster }

A new sticker design is up! You can click on the image to go to my sticker store! There are lots of other great designs there too, some are very multi-use like my Super Singer sticker and I heart Primary Music and there also a few holiday ones and one for I Am A Child of God. I’m thinking I’ll be doing one for each song we learn this year, so look out for those! I think they would be great for a sticker chart to keep track of which songs your primary has “passed off” and are program ready!

And, since you guys have loved my I Am A Child of God poster, (it’s the second most downloaded printable from this site!) I’ll be making one of those for each song this year too! The poster and the sticker will kind of have similar elements to them to keep everything cohesive, like this:
