I made these signs to help the transition period when the senior primary joins the junior primary for our combined intermediate exercises. The senior primary was having a hard time coming in reverently. There was a lot of noise and bustle as they came in and found their seats.
Now, as soon as the presidency member finishes her sharing time, the pianist begins playing either the reverence song that we will be singing at the beginning of intermediate exercises, or another song that I want the children to become more familiar with. I hold up one sign at a time, changing them every line or so, and we all hum or sing lu lu lu or whatever, as the senior primary files in. I try and catch their attention as soon as they walk in, so they see they are expected to participate and come in and find a seat reverently. It’s been working quite well. I keep these in the large front pocket of my apron, so they are right at my fingertips when I need them.
Love your ideas! I will be checking back for more!
