This fun recorder version of My Heavenly Father Loves Me is a great enrichment activity to challenge the Senior Primary with!
In 4th grade, most students learn to play the recorder so they likely even have one around their home that they can use for practicing.

My Heavenly Father Loves Me Recorder Music
My son was obsessed with the recorder when it came home last year (4th grade) and he played it all the time. He lost his recorder which gave us a welcome break from baa-baa-black sheep and other repetitive high pitched songs. But he had been asking for a recorder again.
I bought him a Recorder and learn to play recorder book and we decided to work together to create sheet music for My Heavenly Father Loves Me to learn one of the Primary songs with his recorder! He was picking it up faster than I could create the sheet music, but it’s still be great for him to practice with!
Now, my son is dreaming of being able to play the recorder for the Program, in place of singing. While he likely won’t be using the recorder for the Primary Program, I do plan to have him present his practice during Primary!
This is his last year in Primary (with a late fall birthday) so he’s one of those anxious boys in the back row so ready to move up!
You could extend this to a whistle along challenge for the Senior primary, to see if they can follow along with the tune – and those high notes! Or have a recorder-off competition! I could see the Senior boys being all over that!
My Heavenly Father Loves Me on the Recorder
*Lower your volume before you hit play — those recorder notes are HIGH!
Here’s a quick video of my son’s 2nd full attempt – pretty awesome for just his 2nd time through. The high notes he needs so more practice on covering all the holes just right.
If that video is not loading, and you’re brave enough to want to see it 😉 you can also find the video on my Singing Time YouTube playlist.
After you grab the sheet music below, head over for this fun Gethsemane Egg Shakers singing time idea next!

I would encourage you to purchase a better instrument. This is more of a recorder-like toy. Yamaha makes good plastic recorders – be sure to get Baroque style instead of the German that your son has. And left hand on top! Enjoy!
This was something given to the 4th graders at school and was just a fun side project since many 4th graders learn on the recorder. Thanks for your tips!
