Suggested Come Follow Me Primary Songs: 4-Year Song Rotation

This post may also be available in: English Español

Picking songs can be quite a feat! You pour over the lists of all of the monthly songs and your hand jotted notes of what songs they kids have already learned and try to piece it all together and come up with a plan.

To help simplify the process, I poured over my two different Come, Follow Me Printable Primary Song Rotation Lists and came up with what made the most sense to me for each of the songs. I picked one song per month for each of the 4 years with NO overlap in the songs. This way, I would be able to teach 40+ songs after 4 years, and then repeat those again to help the kids remember the songs anew.

This is just a framework that I created to help simplify my process for picking songs. It should be used as a guidepost only to help you in planning and preparing your song lists each year. Of course, use the Spirit as your guide to help fine tune and make any needed adjustments to pick the right songs for your Primary!

Along with the rotation of song selections, I use the other songs from the monthly list as wiggle songs, where there are songs that are a perfect fit for that! It’s a great way to add in even more of the songs in the year, and you can see how I did that with my Come Follow Me Primary singing time outlines, for an example!

Primary Song Selection Chart Key:

  • Month: You’ll notice the first column is the Month. This is the specific month the song was selected from. However, I mix and match my songs throughout the year prior to the program.

    This isn’t necessarily the month we will work on this song. This post on how I plan my songs for the whole year can help explain this concept! Plus, also see an example singing time for how I add a few short activities each week!
  • Song Title & Hymn Number: This lists the song name and where to find it in the next two columns. If there is a “-” dash symbol, that means it is not available in the Children’s Songbook or Hymn book. It may be available on LDS.org under the additional Primary songs or may be available for purchase for a nominal fee.

    The letter “H” used before a number is there to represent that song would be found in the Hymnal. All other numbers are specifically referencing the page number within the Children’s Songbook.

    Finally, if there was not a specific Christmas or Easter song, I have added a recommendation that suited my needs. Of course, you can adjust your song selections to fit your ward.
  • Letter: The final column has a single letter next to some, but not all, of the songs. The letters correspond with song selections to use during the Primary Program (P), Easter (E), and Christmas (C).

    Your Primary may or may not be asked to sing for these 3 occasions throughout the year, but it’s a good idea to have something in mind in case you are asked! From my experience, the ward music leader or Bishopric tend to only give a couple of weeks notice.
