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). I also kept Easter in mind when deciding. We almost always sing April's song for Easter in sacrament meeting. April's theme is "Jesus Christ Teaches Me to Choose the Right." 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)
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 - This is what I chose this year. Lesson plan coming soon!
**There is also a "Helps for the music leader" section for this song in the 2017 Outline on pg. 9:
For ideas for teaching the songs where I don't have a lesson plan linked (or if you chose something different), I'd reference the following:
A Children's Songbook Companion. Find details of this book HERE.
Sugardoodle HERE and search for the song alphabetically.
Then there's the obvious Google, Pinterest, Facebook (Chorister's Group HERE), or other singing time blogs - I have several linked to the right and scroll down
