When Joseph Went to Bethlehem

We breezed through Picture a Christmas (find my lesson plan HERE)!  So much so that I'm not going to review it again this week.  I decided to throw another Christmas song in to the mix - and why not?  We won't be performing When Joseph Went to Bethlehem in Sacrament Meeting but that's alright, the more Christmas songs we sing, the better!

To teach this song, I'll be using the simple hand motions with scarves found on sugardoodle HERE (scroll down past the links).  I've typed up the actions HERE (I changed it a little) so you can simply download, print and take it with you :).  But I'd HIGHLY suggest learning all these hand motions before primary!  It will be pretty difficult to try to figure them all out as you teach!

These are my scarves (I bought them when I taught The Holy Ghost HERE):
I bought them on Amazon here:


The kids LOVE the scarves!  In my opinion, they are such a versatile item to have for your primary!  Especially for teaching primary songs!  If your primary has room in their budget, I'd suggest getting some.

Hi Camille, I check your blog every week! Thanks for all the help. Does each kid get a scarf or just you as you're teaching the song?

I would also like to know if you have all your kids use a scarf or just you!...

Definitely me and all the kids have scarves. Sorry that isn't more clear.

Hi Camille! Love all of your creative ideas! We use scarves in nursery every week so I'd love to get these uniform scarves. On Amazon I can only see them for $25. Is that the price you paid?

Camille Hill said...

Hi Ashley!

Those are what I bought and I paid that price...totally worth it though.

Hi Camille!
I'm late in planning my lesson for tomorrow and want to do the scarves! I found them at a local store, but they are only 18 inches. Do you think they would work or should I hold off until next week and order the bigger ones?

Hi Heather!

18 inches would work fine but I think the bigger scarves might be a little better. I've never used the smaller scarves so I could be completely wrong. That may be a question to ask the FB group if you are a member.
