Primary Flip Charts for Singing Time

I love flip charts! I think they’re super helpful to get teachers and kids to sing that otherwise might not. I don’t use flip charts for every song, every week, but I do use a flipchart for every song at least a few times while teaching and while reviewing songs.

What is a Flip Chart?

Flip Charts, in Primary, as are series of pages of the song lyrics, and often images, that help the children follow along while learning a new song. The name comes because Primary music leader and choristers have often held them up and flip from page to page as you sing through the song.

Primary flip charts can be a really helpful visual aids to use when introducing a song for the first time or if you’re singing a song, such as for an opening song, that you don’t plan to work on much but still want the kids to feel confident in singing along!

Because I think simplicity and ease is best – I aim all my flip charts to be as condensed as possible. That means, fewer pages to stumble through and try to flip along during the song, but that still present the words and a picture or two for interest. Hopefully, these flip charts will come in handy and useful for you.

These are designed for primary school-aged children (3-11) with a nice bold font that’s easy to ready and colorful key words to add interest! Keep in mind, while most of Junior Primary children cannot read, it does help the adult leaders and older kids singing along.

You can find the sheet music for the Primary flip charts featured here in the Children’s Songbook by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or songs created by private composers sheet music is linked on the individual flip chart posts.

  1. What do the different colors of words mean on the flip charts? Are there activities that go along with certain colors? How do you use them to teach the song?

    • They’re just to add color and interest pointing out keywords! I do tend to have specific colors I tie to specific words – like Red or Purple for Heavenly Father and Christ, and blue for action words, orange for references to self. But it really just depends on what fits and works best, there isn’t entirely a rhyme or reason. 🙂
