I Know that My Savior Loves Me Follow Up

This is my follow-up post for my I Know that My Savior Loves Me lesson plans (both the 1st and 2nd verse posts found HERE and HERE).  The purpose of these is they help others, going forward, tweak plans for their primaries, stray away from lesson plans that flopped {yes, it happens to everyone...even me!!}, and give feedback (don't be too harsh!) about how it went in general.  You can find my response below.  These posts will be linked back to the actual lesson plan so they'll be easy to reference.

So, I ask you...

If you taught my lesson plan for I Know that My Savior Loves Me 1st and 2nd verses, how did it go, what things did you change, what do you wish you would have done differently, would you do it again?  Leave a comment below!

Here's my response:

I totally forgot to do my attention getter!  Woops!  I just started right into the actions and talking about the song.  That happens to me sometimes!

Senior primary did well learning the actions and did exceptionally well using the comparison charts.  We were able to discuss how even though we don't get to physically see and touch Jesus Christ, He still blesses our lives.  Some boys in the back got a little disruptive but the primary president went and sat by them so I was grateful!

Junior primary enjoyed the actions when we did the first verse and they were a bit rowdy when we were working on the second.  But they did fine.  When we started singing time, they were really wiggly so we sang My Hands to prepare their hands for the actions - worked like a charm!

Here's what Facebook Choristers had to say:

It went very well. I loved having the children imagine they were there long ago. The spirit was very strong.

Explaining what the song was about was perfect to get their attention before diving into the song. I haven't taught the 2nd verse yet, but the 1st verse they learned quickly in both Jr and Sr and enjoyed doing the actions you recommended. Thank you for all your work into this blog.
