I picked to teach this cute Grandmother song as my Father’s Day Primary Song (list) one year and it was a BIG hit! It reminds me so much of the sweet song Daddy’s Homecoming, with that upbeat tempo and fun lyrics. You can easily teach it to your Primary children with this Grandmother Song Flip Chart!
To help it better fit a 2-syllable word, just have the pianist drop the 3rd note in “Grandmother” and it fits great!

You’ll find this printable flip chart below, but I wanted to make sure you knew that I have an entire page full of Primary Singing Time Flip Charts! It’s a wonderful resource to find printable pictures and lyrics for your song picks for the year. Plus, the styling is consistent on all of them!
Another great resource is this fun post with 10 Singing Time Ideas using Flip Charts! It’s a great place to find ideas to keep in your back pocket to switch to if an activity was a bust or you had an extra busy week and didn’t have time to plan.
This song is published in the Children’s Songbook Page #200

You give me a kiss.
You give me a hug.
You smile when you see me too.
I wish ev’ry child in the whole wide world
Had a grandmother* just like you.
You read me a book.
You sing me a song.
You whisper you love me too.
I’ll try to be good;
I’ll do as I should.
I’ll whisper, “I love you too.”
*Can substitute for grandfather, or for Mother / Father by dropping one note.

Grandmother Slideshow Flip Chart
For this last slideshow Grandmother Flip Chart, you’ll need to tell the children who you are going to sing about, and show them where that word will go (on the blank). It’s easy-peasy! Then, display the lyrics up on a TV monitor and everyone will be able to see the words to help them sing along.
