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!


  1. This is a fantastic set of visuals for this song!! Just printed out and can't wait to use in on Sunday. Thank you so much for all your hard work in putting this together and especially for sharing it!!! So appreciated.

  2. I'll be using this tomorrow in my ward. Thank you so much for all your hard work! I'm really grateful.

  3. This is wonderful! Thank you for sharing. I did a Name that Tune game where I hummed a bunch of Janice Kapp Perry's songs and the kids had to name the song. (There are over 10 of hers in the Children Songbook) Then I asked them what all of these songs had in common and I showed them a picture of her and told them they were all written by her. Then, I related your story of why she wrote I Love to See the Temple and reviewed the song with them. I will probably use your question and answer cards next week. Thank you!

    1. That's a great idea. I'll have to remember that when I'm finished with the program songs.
