Singing Time Sundays - Follow the Prophet

This month we get to learn new verses from "Follow the Prophet". This is a favorite for the kids. I often use it as one of the wiggle songs. It has a fun beat that they can move to in a variety of ways. Because of this, we already know a few of the verses. The song has 9 original verses and several more have been written and can be found in March '10 and June '01 church magazine The Friend.

Choosing which verses to learn and polish is the hard part. On Primary Singing Ideas she had several visuals already made for several verses. I decided to go with Adam, Jonah, Joseph Smith, and Pres. Monson. The senior primary also requested Daniel, so we may add him.

Anyway, I basically just introduced the new verses today, using the visuals with words printed. I pulled out the handy dandy Easter egg rice shakers and the kids took turns doing shakers during each chorus. They will shake those things all day long, so it made repeating the 9 million verses an easy thing to do.
