If the Savior Stood Beside Me

Every year, I like to teach one song using ASL in primary (simplified ASL rather).  So this year I'll be teaching If the Savior Stood Beside Me using ASL.  When we sing it in the program, we'll also sign with it.  It provides great movement for the kids when learning it and definitely helps with memorizing the words.  I have a post HERE to help with teaching ASL if you need.

I'll be using my lesson plan found HERE when I taught it the last time.  This week I'll focus on the chorus then the 1st verse.  Time permitting, I'll pull out scarves and we'll go over all the actions using scarves (details for using scarves and where I got mine are also linked with my ASL help post) It calls for passing out cookies at the end but since this Sunday is fast Sunday I'm going to bring them next week.  I only like to bring treats into primary if it coincides with my lesson well - I've found that if I bring them too often and they fail to be a treat anymore ;).  But it's completely optional so do what works best for your primary.

I am also very grateful for your amazing ideas and materials! I noticed a tiny error in the ASL portion of the lesson document. Instead of "see" (as in "if I could see the Savior standing nigh"), "stood" is repeated. You're always so well-prepared it probably won't matter to you, but I know when I get nervous trying to remember the ASL in front of my Primary, I am grateful to have my notes correct so it doesn't trip me up. Thank you again for all you do!!!

Hi Mommy West!

I have more typos than I care to have, and appreciate everyone's help in keeping me accurate. That "stood" section just needed to be deleted as it shouldn't have been there. I've updated my lesson plan. Thank you for catching that!
