January 2016! Singing Time Schedule

Wow!  Time to start the new year here soon!  Can't believe it - but I suppose I can't stay in holiday mode forever!

See how I use my singing time schedule HERE!  Then download an editable and printable version of the below information HERE.

This year, for my "scripture song" (the song we sing for maybe 2 minutes before I delve into my lesson) I am going to be rotating between Scripture Power found HERE, The Books in the Book of Mormon, The Books in the New Testament and The Books in the Old Testament.  I will be asking the kids to bring their scriptures to primary and every time they do, we'll tally them up as we sing our scripture song and put them on some sort of chart.  Then when it's full, we'll have some sort of "party."  Can you tell I haven't though this all out?  I could use some ideas on this!!

For tallying up kids that brought scriptures in our primary we pass around a big jar and a ziplock with little pompoms as we sing scripture power. The kids that are holding up their scriptures as we sing get to put a pom pom in the jar and when the jar is full they all get a treat and then we start over. It works, the kids love holding up their scriptures in the song and love seeing the jar fill up!

I Love that Idea! Simple yet effective! I'll probably be implementing that in primary! Thank you for sharing!!

Can you tell me how you make the video flip charts for the program presentation. would love to try it this year. thanks again for all your great ideas!!

Hi The Webbers!

It's really technical (I usually have my husband do most of it!)...you take a PDF version of a flip chart (that you would print) and put it into a software that will turn it into a video (our MAC will do it), then add the audio and such. Someone on FB posted all of the ones they made for 2016. My 2 months choice songs are different so I will be creating those. But you can find that link here:

I hope that helps! I'll hopefully have mine up this week if I can get my act together :).
