December 2018 Singing Time Schedule


See how I use my singing time schedule HERE!  Then download an editable and printable version of the below information HERE or use my December 2018 Singing Time Planner found HERE.



For the month of December, I will be utilizing our handbells quite extensively!  If your primary budget allows, I would HIGHLY recommend getting a set for your primary. Check out my post about using handbells at Christmas time HERE for more information.

Make sure to check out all of my Christmas singing time lesson plans HERE for more ideas.

Singing Time Schedule
December 2018

December 2nd:
Opening song: Who Is the Child? p. 46
Scripture song: The Thirteenth Article of Faith p. 132
Birthday song:  Happy, Happy Birthday p. 284
Welcome song: We're All Together Again p. 259
Singing Time: The Shepherd’s Carol p. 40 & Mary's Lullaby p. 44
Activity: Handbells playing the bottom hand of the piano accompaniment on The Shepherd's Carol HERE and the descant on Mary's Lullaby HERE - more to come!


We have a ward party on December 8th and they asked me if I would head up a bell choir for the entertainment portion of the party.  My tentative plan is to have kids who are 8 and older, play the handbells.   I'm working on bell charts for a few secular Christmas songs like Jingle Bells (which we may perform first and I'll invite the younger kids to come shake simple jingle bells strung on pipe cleaner like I have here (these are from my nursery bag with details HERE):

and Carol of the Bells.  Then we'll be playing The Shepherd's Carol, Mary's Lullaby, Samuel Tells of the Baby Jesus and end with Christmas Bells from the Children's Songbook.  We probably won't do any singing, only bells because I can only do so much but I'm still thinking it through.  Check out my post HERE with details.


If you have a ward party and need ideas, I have a Primary Christmas-Song-Nativity HERE where you can dress the kids in costume, read short verses of scripture and sing in between.
