July Primary

July is going to be a crazy month, I'm going to be gone for two Sundays, all the children that will be out of town, the holiday, all the teachers that will be gone too, and how hot its going to be each Sunday in our Arizona church house that has no air circulation in the primary room.

For Subs: I came up with the idea of having a Primary class to Singing Time.

  1. Before hand arrange with a teacher to lead Singing Time. Durring their class time they will prepare by each child filling out the following paper, it says "My Favorite Primary Song Is______." They can use the extra space to draw a picture of the song or that explains why its their favorite.

  2. During Singing Time: the teacher leads singing time.

  3. Each child stands up, shows their filled out paper, says what their favorite song is and if they want to explains why.

  4. Then the whole primary sings the 'favorite' song. Either the teacher conducts the song or the child can.

  5. Each child in the class gets to share their song and have it sung.

For classes whose teacher are not always there I will do this with their class on a Sunday when I am there. My goal is to have every class done by the end of the year.

July's song: As I posted previously I am planning on doing 'Jesus Said Love Everyone' and doing the sign language too. Its going to be really easy to teach and the children really like doing sign language to the songs.

I just wanted to let you know on the 3rd line of the song, that you used "full of love" instead of "filled with love". I don't know that you've got time to redo your wonderful sign language clip, but. .

I'm glad to know that I wasn't the only one to feel like this would be a good song to choose for the kids to learn. THANKS.

Yes the line is "filled with love". I'm not going to redue the clip. I should but it doesn't change the signs I'm using so I'm just going to leave it. For years I thought it was "full", now I know.
