  Conversation Hearts Repetition/Review Activity by Heather

  (by Katie Beattie) I am taking the conversation heart idea and making a matching game out of it. I loved one sister's idea of the Valentines Heavenly Father has given us because he loves us so I have chosen 8 songs and conversation heart messages to use. When the children find the matches we will talk about what message in the song is a "Valentine" from Heavenly Father.  I am also going to put 4 or 5 "bonus hearts" on the back (which is actually the front) of my hearts so when they turn that one heart over, they have to tell me of someone that they love or someone that loves them or maybe something nice they can do for someone in their family (haven't decided that part yet).

The songs and messages I am using are:

I'LL FOLLOW - Follow Him in Faith
("valentine" = Gospel Truth, Simple Faith, Feel His Love, Many Ways)
LOVE HIM - This is My Beloved Son (The Savior)
BE WISE- Wiseman & the Foolish Man (Choice or Wisdom)
CALL ME - Quickly I'll Obey (Commandments)
URA STAR - I Am Like A Star (Heavenly Father)
4 EVER - Families Can Be Together Forever (Families)
WIN Scripture Power Scripture Power (Scriptures)
#1 - Latter Day Prophets (Prophets)

 Camille's Primary Ideas

  Super Singer Valentines - Use valentines to motivate the children to sing well for whatever song you are working on.  When I see the children singing well, looking at me, paying attention, or just trying really hard to learn the words to a new song, I have one of them come up to the front and pick out a Valentine heart from the ones I have taped to the board. I put little sayings on them so they look just like those little conversation hearts. If they do super well, I have them choose two. They then put them into our mailbox (I found a cardboard one at a dollar store, or you could just decorate a shoe box).  At the end of our singing time, we count up how many Valentines they've earned.  If they earn a certain amount, say 10, they get a little reward like a heart stamp on their hand or a heart sticker to show that they were super singers that day.  If you want, you could see who can earn more that day--junior or senior primary, or do this a couple of weeks in a row and see if they can beat their own previous record.  (Idea by Tina Tai / ga02152010) 

  Mend the broken hearts - First you can talk about how the Savior can help us to overcome our troubles and our heartaches, and mend our broken hearts.  Have several hearts of different colors that are cut in half, and ask a child to choose one.  Put one half on the board, and have the child hide the other half.  Have another child who was out in the hallway come in and find the missing half while the children sing a verse from the song you are learning, getting louder when the child gets closer and softer when he is further away ("Hot and Cold").  See how many hearts they can mend by repeating this for each verse or song you want them to practice.  (Idea by Tina Tai / ga02152010)

  Love is in the air

  (by Luana Willis)  I was doing a little research on the "conversation heart" that are as traditional for Valentines day as the Christmas tree is at Christmas...and I thought it would be fun to do a singing time with that as the idea.  I found a bunch of the words they use on hearts and different songs they can be found in.  They sound "lovey dovey" but can actually be found in some of the songs.

I am going to make big hearts in all different colors that look just like the candy, and print the words on the front and write the song and page number on the back, and then put them all over the chalk board.  The idea is that you have to figure out which song the words can be found in.  I have way more than we could possibly sing, but that way there are just lots of choices.  So here you go:

I think I'll make hearts on popsicle sticks for all the children, and when we get to the words that are on the heart (while we sing the song) I'll have them stick it up in the air.  Maybe they could just stand up or something.

 Cut out a bunch of hearts with song names on the back. Tape them up onto something and have the children pick.

 Name that Primary Song about love
