Nephi's Courage

I've been trying to figure out how to teach this great song. My SR knows it well so I will just be reviewing it but most of my JR don't know it at all.
There are sooooo many cute ideas out there for teaching this song. I don't like to 're-invent the wheel' but I do like to put my own spin on it. Here are a few I have added to:

The OCD Primary Chorister made a cute flip chart with pictures that she drew. You can link to it HERE.  I decided to use this with my SR to review but I re-did it and just put one 'key word' with each picture.
There are NO pictures for the chorus.

Camille over on her blog had a darling idea of teaching the first two verses of the song with puppets.
You can check out her post HERE

There weren't puppets for the chorus and Camille does the 3rd verse a different way so I made some puppets for them.
Susan Fitch has some really cute puppets on her Etsy Shop. You can check them out HERE.
I used her puppets but on the church's website there are some there too.
Here's how mine turn out.
When the kids know the verse pretty well I'm going to pull out the 'STAGE'. 

I use a shower or curtain rod with a long curtain attached. I have 2 teachers hold the rod. The kids stand behind the curtain and hold the puppets up over the rod as we sing.

Happy Singing!
