May is ANOTHER "your choice" song! To pick my May song, just like April, I looked at May's theme for the month and started from there (it helps our Program jive a little better!). May's theme is "Prophets Teach Us to Live the Restored Gospel." Here are my suggestions (they are all listed under "Prophets" in the Topics section in the back of the Children's Songbook):
Book of Mormon Stories p. 118
Follow the Prophet p. 110
Keep the Commandments p. 146
Latter-day Prophets p. 134 (find my lesson plan for this song HERE)
The Prophet Said to Plant a Garden p. 237
Seek the Lord Early p. 108
The Sixth Article of Faith p. 126
Stand for the Right p. 159 (find my lesson plan for this song HERE)
We'll Bring the World His Truth p. 172 (I'll be teaching this one so stay tuned for my upcoming lesson plans)
For ideas for teaching the other songs, I'd reference the following:
A Children's Songbook Companion. Find details of this book HERE.
Sugardoodle HERE and search for the song alphabetically.
Search past files on Primusic on Yahoo Groups (find details HERE)
Google, Pinterest, Facebook (Chorister's Group HERE), or other singing time blogs of course!
There are a few good hymns that go along with this month as well:
We Thank Thee, Oh God For a Prophet (reference the 2013 Outline HERE in May for teaching tips)
