I'm teaching the song Fathers (page 209) for our Sacrament Meeting musical number.  I've pooled several ideas together and I hope I can give credit where credit is due (and thank you Choristers Facebook Group for all your input!!).

You can go HERE and see all the Father's Day posts I have posted if you are in need of more ideas.

Items needed:
  • Chalk and eraser
  • Song on CD (Disc 4 #36) and a CD player (optional)
  • Flip chart pages HERE printed on card stock and placed in sheet protectors (the original source to the flip chart is HERE which includes the chorus - mine does not)
  • tape or magnets
  • Props:  sunglasses; helmet and/or shin guards, kneepads, etc; flashlight; conductor stick (I'm using a wooden dowel); and a "Special" badge (download HERE) printed on yellow paper or card stock and laminated; and a clothes pin
Here's my lesson plan (download the document HERE):

The Attention-Getter idea is from A Children's Songbook Companion.  Below is a visual of how to present it on the chalkboard:


(after, ready for flip chart pages)

You can download these documents HERE if you like.

editor's note:  I don't use flip charts often but I did like this sister's work and choice of pictures, especially for the 3rd verse.  It helps that I am not teaching this song entirely with them but using props as well.

Camille, I was searching around last week and found a post with a drawing of Dad and then interchangeable ties that have different songs listed on the back. I could have sworn this was you but now I can't find it. Do you have any idea who this might have been? Any help would be great. Thanks

Hi Heather,

Sorry, it's not me and I haven't seen it. If I do, I'll leave another comment.

You're such a lifesaver Camille! I've been wracking my brain for weeks trying to figure out how to make this song fun to learn/teach. Thank you!
