Primary Music Idea - Praise to the Man









"I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air.  One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other - This is My Beloved Son.  Hear Him!"  (Joseph Smith - History 1:17)

I am so excited that this month our Primary Children will be learning more about the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  This song was not an easy one to come up with a teaching idea for.  I decided that some of the lyrics were larger words then what our Primary Children may be used to hearing so I thought it might be neat to share the definition of some the words with them.  I've got the vocabulary word printed out on blue paper and the definition on yellow.  With the Junior Primary I plan to just introduce these words to the children and with Senior Primary I'm going to mix up the definitions to see if they can match up the word with it's definition.  I've cut some ribbon to use as a way to match them up on the black board.  Bearing your testimony at the end of teaching this month would be an added touch in allowing the Primary Children to see and hear that you too have a testimony of the Restored Gospel.

I found this really neat Joseph Smith Bookmark at our local LDS Bookstore.  This was a great find because it has a complete timeline of his life on the back.  I highly recommend purchasing one if you have access to picking one up.

If you would like a copy of the words and definitions...please comment here or email me directly at jennifer.hawkins@hotmail.com or beehivemessages@gmail.com.  Be sure to leave me your email address.
