August is another "your choice" song! To pick my August song, I looked at August's theme for the month and started from there (it helps our program jive a little better!). August's theme is "Jesus Christ Is the Son of God, and He Is a God of Miracles." Here are my suggestions (they are all listed under "Jesus Christ - Ministry" in the Topics section in the back of the Children's Songbook:
Tell Me the Stories of Jesus p. 57 (this is what I chose - more to come on my lesson plan! Find an idea I'll most likely be using HERE)
Before I Take the Sacrament p. 73
Book of Mormon Stories p. 118
Had I Been a Child p. 80
I Think When I Read That Sweet Story p. 56
Jesus Loved the Little Children p. 59
Jesus Said Love Everyone p. 61
To Think about Jesus p. 71 (find my lesson plan HERE)
You could expand the topic to include the other sub-sections Jesus Chirst. If you want to see all the songs listed under those sub-sections, they are HERE and you can see if I have any lesson plans on those songs HERE.
For ideas for teaching the songs where I don't have a lesson plan linked, 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 - I have several linked to the right and scroll down!
