August 2013 Singing Time Schedule

As always, you can find the words to most of these songs under the "Posting Words" tab above.

On a side note, I've had several comments about some of you not being able to access my documents on Scribd for free.  Please do not pay for a membership!  I'm not sure why you can access some documents and others you cannot.  If there's a document you need, you can contact me and I'll email you anything.  It just won't be as prompt so you may have to be patient with me.  If you have any suggestions as to something better for posting documents online, I'm all ears!!

I had that issue with Scribd. I don't know why. It works for me with other stuff I've downloaded. Even on the same day! :) But would Google Docs work? I'm not a guru, so I'm not sure. But it's an idea. P.S. Thank you so much for sharing your ideas! They are wonderful!

I'm totally stuck on how to teach A Child's Prayer. You always have amazing ideas, so I can't wait to see what you come up with!

You are awesome. (: I was just called and about died of happiness when I found your site! Question - what do you do with your hands during the songs? Are you holding something with the words on, some sort of prop, doing actions, conducting? I always feel a little bit silly with my hands because conducting doesn't seem quite exciting enough for little kids, so I just end up holding a chart with the words on. Just curious about what you do! Thanks!

Thank you so much for this blog. I am a tone deaf, non musical, Primary Chorister who has no idea how to lead music (I love flip charts for that reason). I have been stumbling my way through this calling for the past six months as I just try my best to teach the Gospel through song (best advice one of my friends told me when I was freaking out about this calling). I have a silly nature, so that helps a little, but man, I am really nervous now with the primary program coming up, so I am super happy I found your blog. I am printing off a bunch of ideas and running to the store today! Can't wait to try the wiggle worms tomorrow! Thanks again! ~Sarah Hull

thanks so much! I had an idea if it can help anyone for introducing a Child's Prayer...I made doors with the questions from the 1st vs on the front that open to the coinciding answers and statements from the 2nd vs.

As far as leading music goes, I kind of do it all. During opening exercises I usually just conduct like normal. During singing time, if it is an action song, I do the actions. If it is a song we are unfamiliar I will sometimes pitch lead. And sometimes I'll point to the pictures hung on the chalkboard as we sing if there are pictures, etc. With the little kids, I do a lot of pitch leading as I feel it's a good visual of the notes for them. I rarely have things in my hands I'm holding but that's just my preference.

I hope that helps!
