April is a “your choice” song! To pick my April song, I looked at April’s theme for the month and started from there (it helps our program jive a little better!). April’s theme is “Jesus Christ Is My Savior and Redeemer.” Here are my suggestions (which I picked from section 2, The Savior, in the Children’s Songbook!):
He Sent His Son . 34 (find my lesson plan HERE)
I Think When I Read That Sweet Story p. 56
Tell Me the Stories of Jesus p. 57 (find my lesson plan HERE)
Beautiful Savior p. 62 (find my lesson plan HERE – this is what I chose, more to come!)
I Feel My Savior’s Love p. 74
This Is My Beloved Son p. 76 (find my lesson plan HERE)
I’m Trying to Be like Jesus p. 78 (find my lesson plan HERE)
Had I Been a Child p. 80 (find my lesson plan HERE)
When He Comes Again p. 82
For ideas for teaching the songs where I don’t have a lesson plan linked, I’d reference the following:
A Children’s Songbook Companion. Find details of this book HERE.
Sugardoodle HERE and search for the song alphabetically.
Search past files on Primusic on Yahoo Groups (find details HERE)
Google, Pinterest, Facebook (Chorister’s Group HERE), or other singing time blogs of course – I have several linked to the right and scroll down!
