alt Flipchart for "The Family is of God" - (it will open in Microsoft Power Point) by Robert Mortensen.  He writes, "The pictures from Life Magazine are now available online for non-profit use. Pretty great stuff!" (ga12302008)

alt While the pianist plays the song, ask the children to close their eyes and think about something they like to do with their families. Teach the song's chorus first by having the children hum with the music. Ask them to listen for why God gives us families as you sing the first phrase of the chorus. Take responses, then sing the phrase together. Have them listen for the message while you sing the second phrase of the chorus. Sing the second phrase together and then the entire chorus several times.  Have the children listen and watch while you sing the first verse using actions. For example, when singing "It's me!" point to yourself; point to them when singing "It's you"; and make a hand motion to include everyone when singing "all others too." Teach the second verse by explaining that Heavenly Father designed the roles of a father and mother. In advance, make wordstrips of the words in the song that describe some duties of a father (preside, provide, protect, love, teach, lead). Display them out of order. Ask the children to listen while you sing so they can help put them in order. After doing this, have the children sing the verse a few times while you remove one word each time. Do the same in verse three for mother (care, prepare, nurture, strengthen, teach). Bear testimony that Heavenly Father gives us families to help us become who He wants us to be.  (Idea taken from the January 2009 Sharing Time)

alt The Family is of God Flipchart by Linda Mullins

 (Shared by Em / ga01192009)  My mom wrote another verse to the incredible, new Primary song "A Family is of God" for her grandchildren:

Grandma & Grandpa love me, too.
They're who can help me feel
the love of Heavenly Father.
They want me to learn
all the rest that's best
For me and for my family.

(then the chorus)

  • Brynn  - Wacky Words Game

    Taught this on Sunday using Wacky Words. I played the line on a CD for the kids and then I sang the line using these Wacky Words and they had to tell me what the wacky words were and what the correct lyrics were. Then we sang that line 3 times correctly before moving onto the next line. It was a great way to go through the song line by line without them getting bored. It was hilarious too! The kids had a ball!

    Our Father has a Christmas Tree. It’s me!
    It’s you, all others too: we are His children.

    He sent each one of us to earth, through birth,
    To Trick-or-Treat here in fam’lies.

    A father’s place is to preside, provide,
    Go to the Beach the gospel to his children.

    A father leads in fam’ly prayer to Wear a Glove
    for Father in Heaven.

    A mother’s purpose is Play Truth Or Dare
    To nurture and to strengthen all her children.

    She teaches children to Say Hey Today
    To love and serve in the fam’ly.

    I’ll love and serve my family and be
    A frosty snowman to each fam’ly member.

    And when ...
