Between having the flu and spring break with the kids, I have really neglected to post on the blog lately. But, I'm back and excited to contribute. If you have left me a comment asking for help on a particular song, I am sorry that I haven't gotten back to you. I will try and get to those asap.
With that said, I've changed my mind again. I went back to my original idea to teach "Beautiful Savior". I know that is the song I am suppose to teach the kids even though we will only have two weeks to do it. So here goes...
This idea is purely the genius of another primary chorister, Tammy. She posted this idea on the Yahoo Primusic site a few days back, and I knew it was a perfect way to convey the message of the song and bring the spirit in for our Easter Primary experience. I have changed a few things because I always do, but it is essentially the same. I am not sure if this is the exact media presentation she used, but I found it was very touching and beautiful.
1 Easter egg
1 picture of Jesus Christ
Laptop and projector (or burn the presentation on cd)
some flower in a vase or another beautiful thing from nature
Tell the children some of the things that you find beautiful. Show them the vase of flowers and tell how its beauty has the power to lift someones spirits. Pass the egg around to various children. Ask them to share what they find to be beautiful. Then tell them that there was One who's sacrifice and life was more beautiful and powerful then all of those mentioned, He made All beautiful things possible. Then show the following presentation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsqJFFyHFFQ
After, have the children sing the song with you using the picture prompts.
