We had a fantastic review of the program songs today using the scriptures annotated in the Children’s Songbook. I was inspired by this “The Children Sing” post. I wrote the scripture reference on each paper and used them as bookmarks, having a child point to the paper he/she wanted. We read from my scriptures, discussed it’s significance, then had fun guessing which song it referred to. I asked the children to try and reflect on the scripture we read as we sang the corresponding song. I bore testimony at the end of our singing time, that the principles in the scriptures and in the songs we sang are true.
Matthew 19:13-15 (I Know that My Savior Loves Me)
Galatians 3:26 (The Fourth Article of Faith)
John 3:16 (He Sent His Son)
D & C 18:34-36 (This is My Beloved Son)
2Nephi 31:10 (Come, Follow Me)
D&C 115:4-5 (The Church of Jesus Christ)
D&C 21:4-7 (Follow the Prophet)
John 14:26 (The Holy Ghost)
I had the song titles written on the chalkboard as reference.
I was trying to come up with a way to talk to the children about what the songs have taught them this year. This works out perfectly! Thanks for the idea.
This is cool!
I love this idea. I've been trying to do review activities that weren't all games and this was perfect. Thanks!
