I'm off to Stake Conference this week and will be enjoying my week off from teaching :) but if I wasn't, I'd finish teaching I Stand all Amazed using my lesson plan I posted last week HERE.
In Senior primary, I didn't get to the time signature, crescendo/decrescendo, drawing in breathing phrases or pass out wands. I'll probably go over all these items with the wands. We'll lead the music, maybe have kids take turns coming up to the front and leading, we'll make "rainbows" with our wands as we learn to breathe with the phrases, etc. I'll hang up the GAB pictures for reinforcement as well.
For Junior primary, I got through almost everything last week - I'll admit, I struggled more with them in keeping their attention. But we'll finish creating actions using our wands for the verse. For the chorus, I'll just have them "bounce" the wands (move them up and down with the rhythm). Maybe have good "bouncers" come up front and have a turn. I may work on memorizing the chorus more than the verse, we'll see. This is a time when my Wiggle Worm Jar always come in handy (find it HERE if you are interested)!
Then for the Sunday before St. Patrick's Day (again, if I didn't have Stake Conference) I'd do my Treasure Hunt that I did last year, found HERE. It was really fun. But I think I'd switch out the songs to be random songs instead of reviewing program sings since there are lots of Sundays this month to do that. More to come!
