I have a hidden random talent you may not be aware of. Buried in the deep recesses of my mind are the lyrics to almost every cheesy love song from the 1960s to the early 2000s. It’s true. I credit the fact that I worked in a semi-fast food restaurant (anyone remember Hogi Yogi/Teriyaki Stix? I worked there for many years. Jealous?) through high school and the first couple of years of college. We always had the easy listening tunes on in the background. Plus, I just love cheesy love songs.
I’ll often burst out singing along with the music soundtrack of a movie or random songs played in a public place while my family (especially my cute husband) watches in awed amazement. Or they all laugh at me. It could go either way. This hidden talent translates well to remembering the lyrics of church songs as well. It may be a mostly useless gift, but it comes in very handy in my calling as Primary Music Leader.
I know not all of us, and especially not the kids in Primary know every word to nearly every song from the Children’s Songbook, though. So today I’ve got another batch of LDS Primary Music flipcharts for you. If you don’t know what flipcharts are, they are often used to help the children in Primary to learn the words to new songs. I love creating them and using them in our Primary. I feel like they really help our kids to learn the lyrics more quickly. The flipcharts I design use simple pictures to help the little pre-readers remember the words as well as the full lyrics for the older kids and teachers.
Teachers often tell me how much they appreciate having the words in front of them. I guess not everyone can remember every lyric to every song 🙂
The songs included in this download are:
A Child’s Prayer
Children All Over the World
Every Star is Different
Families Can be Together Forever
Hum Your Favorite Hymn
I Am Like a Star
I Feel My Savior’s Love
I Will Be Valiant
If The Savior Stood Beside Me
I’ll Follow Him in Faith
Our Door is Always Open
The Still Small Voice
The graphics I drew are simple and black and white. (Ink is pricey!) You can color these flipcharts yourself, if you want, or leave them black and white. I’ve used them both ways and they work well either way.
