I just got called as the Primary chorister a couple weeks ago, So this is VERY helpful to me. Thanks so much!

Ruth Worthington said...

Lisel said...

YES, it definitely does! Thank you!

Eliza said...

so helpful! thanks for letting me piggy back you:)

amanda said...

I love this...would it be possible to put a descriptive title of the activity you are going to do along with the singing time songs? I know there are some weeks you may not know, but that would be helpful for me so I can start thinking about it early. And thank you, thank you, thank you! I love your activities. They are so well done and well thought out. You're awesome!

Camille said...

Sure, that would be easy. Thanks for the tip! I'll try and update this post.

Camille! This is great! I am so artistically challenged that I can use all the help I can get! I have joined several blogs to help me and guide me. They all serve as a compass as I see what I have planned to do and compare it with others. Your listing helps give me ideas on what I can do! Thanks a bunch!

Yes! This is a HUGE help. I used your November list and copied and slightly altered your December list. This is awesome and it helps me do so much better at my calling. My first few weeks I was lost, now I feel so much more organized

Anita Bean said...

How do you play Christmas Singo?

Camille said...

If you search my blog for "Primary Program Singo," it runs very similarly to that. In the squares I have about 8 or 9 Christmas songs and then filled the rest of the squares with random Christmas pictures like a tree or ornament or candy cane. I'll get more information posted when it gets a little closer.

Kristie said...

Yes!! I just got this call and this is SO helpful!!

With the Christmas songs in the primary book do you just sing it or do you make a flip chart or something in case the kids don't know it? I have no clue if my primary kids know some/any of these songs, I just barely started.

Camille said...

I don't do flip charts - honestly, I don't like them. But I post the words to almost EVERY song we sing. Even when we perform. If you scroll down to my Labels on the right for "Staying Organized" and scroll down to the posts where I go through my binder, I describe how I post the words. I hope that helps.
