April Song: Song of your choice from the Children's Songbook

April is a "your choice" song!  To pick my April song, I looked at April's theme for the month and started from there (it helps our program jive a little better!).  April's theme is "Jesus Christ Is My Savior and Redeemer."  Here are my suggestions (which I picked from section 2, The Savior, in the Children's Songbook!):

He Sent His Son . 34 (find my lesson plan HERE)
I Think When I Read That Sweet Story p. 56
Tell Me the Stories of Jesus p. 57 (find my lesson plan HERE)
Beautiful Savior p. 62 (find my lesson plan HERE - this is what I chose, more to come!)
I Feel My Savior's Love p. 74
This Is My Beloved Son p. 76 (find my lesson plan HERE)
I'm Trying to Be like Jesus p. 78 (find my lesson plan HERE)
Had I Been a Child p. 80 (find my lesson plan HERE)
When He Comes Again p. 82

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!

What are you teaching this month?  Leave a comment to help someone else decide!

I could not decide between I Feel My Saviours Love and My Heavenly Father Loves Me. I prayed about it and I received the impression that one of these songs would be sung in Conference and that was the one I was to teach. The impression was so strong I did not doubt it. Sure enough. The first song after the opening prayer in the first Session was I feel My Saviours Love!!!

My primary presidency said we are doing Scripture Power, since it goes with the over all theme. I really wanted to do Beautiful Savior or I feel my Savior's Love. Oh well will do as I am told and make it fun for the kids!
