Pioneer Day is coming up! 
Here are some of the activities I did last year with my kiddos that were EASY and a BIG hit.
My JR loved changing the words to 'Fun To Do'. I had someone pick a card and then we sang the new words and made up an action to go with it. Along the way I would tell them about the pioneer children and the tasks they had to do. I also had a bonnet and apron for the girls and a hat and scarf for the boys to wear. I choose good singer to wear the stuff while we sang.
If you'd like to download the cards and directions click below.

I did a matching with my SR. Each match has a pioneer story or fact with a related scripture and song.

I hope someone finds these useful.

Happy Pioneer Day!

I Love To See The Temple part 2

I'm teaching I Love To See The Temple this month. Because my kiddos already know it, I was just going to dive right in with the ASL (American Sign Language) that I posted about HERE.
But after listening carefully to the words, I decided to take one Sunday and just concentrate on the words and it's meaning. Sometimes I think we sing the familiar songs over and over and forget what the words are really saying and this song has such a beautiful message.
So I went to my good old stand by books for lesson ideas.

And here is what I came up with:
Sister Perry is such an inspired composer and I love to tell the kids about the composers any chance I get. Also the questions will get the kids thinking.
Next week, I'll jump into the ASL.

I also made some question and answer cards to go with it.

Happy Singing!
