 Stand for the Right (flipchart) by Tamara Fackrell 

 An idea from Precious Primary

 Teaching LDS Children

Review Idea for "Stand for the Right"

 Life-Size Tic-Tac-Toe by Anabelle Chacon

 You could ask the children, "How old do you have to be to choose the right?"  Now is the time to choose the right.  Explain that the choices they make now are very important.  Have the children stand up whenever the lyrics say, "Stand for the right."

Here is a cheat sheet for learning the ASL signs for "Stand for the Right".

 Heather writes, "Here's a video that I created for the song "Stand for the Right." I shared it with our primary yesterday and it worked very well as an introduction to this song."

 Words for you - Review Idea

 An idea from Beehive Messages

Donna writes, "Yesterday we did Stand for the Right but I place bees around the room and on the back of them I put one of Pres. Hinckley's be's..  Like Humble, Clean etc.  Then a added 4 others like, bully, sassy, etc.  Who ever was the best singer got to pick one of the bees.  If it was a bad bee I had a hive attached to a box and that bee had to have a time out in the hive.  And another child got to pick a bee etc.  Then we would sing the song but instead of Be True they would sing what ever was on the back of the bee.  Like BE CLEAN, BE CLEAN ...   They had so much fun with this.  It took the Junior Primary a little while to catch on."  (Idea by Donna Jenson)

Singing a song is fun to do

"Here are links to pdf and mp3 for Stand for the Right from the Spanish Children's Songbook.  The children love learning in other languages."  (Shared by Laura from Tucson)

Stand for the Right with 6 Be's

 (Idea by Cara Webber / ga09012009)  We are going to be learning the song "Stand for the Right" next month and this is what I have planned.  Hope it helps someone!  Thanks!

Stand for the Right

Our prophet has some words for you (boy stands holding picture of prophet)

And these are the words:

“Be true, be true.”

(only boy holding picture says “be true, be true”)

At work or at play,

(child holds up broom in one hand and baseball bat in other hand)

In darkness or light,

(child holds up flashlight and turns it on when everyone sings “light”)

Be true, be true,

(boy holding prophet’s picture says “be true, be true”)

And stand for the right.

(everyone stands when singing “stand for the right”)

    Cara - I LOVE LOVE LOVE your suggestions for teaching "Stand for the Right". Our stake leaders have challenged us to limit our use of "flip chart" type teaching and to get more creative. Thanks! I think I will try this idea.

  • Karen McCleery

  • Michele

  • jessica

    Perfect idea! thanks so much!!!

  • Kiersten

    Thank you so much! This is my first Sunday EVER as a primary chorister and I've been a little overwhelmed with the learning curve! I appreciate your idea so much!!!!!!

  • Karin

    Perfect. Thanks.

  • Caralee

    Yes this was so fun! The kids are learning it so fast with your ideas! We even have a teacher turn off the light for in darkness part of the song.

  • Christy Gearhart

    Hey, does anyone know if a specific prophet is being referenced in Stand For the Right? Did one of the Prophets actually say, "Be true, Be true"?

  • codemistress

    Great Suggestions.
    Since this song will also be in the Program next year, I thought I'd share how our Primary is singing it:

    Jr. Primary only stands at the front. Sr. Primary remains sitting.

    The Sr. Primary only sings all the words except "Be True" and the last line.

    Jr. Primary only sings all the "Be True" parts.

    Everybody sings the last line, and Sr. Primary stands to emphasize standing for the right.

  • Jane Rogers

    I am a brand new chorister having never been in Primary and the kids loved this. I had a child turn off the lights when we sang "In darkness" and it was great. Thank you so much!

  • MariahHarrison

    I just wanted to thank Cara and Laura from Tucson (and everyone) for sharing your great ideas!! The kids LOVED learning the song in Spanish! I check this site every week to get ideas, and I appreciate those who contribute so much! You are all awesome!! :)
