To help you better track the songs you’ve taught, are currently teaching, and plan to teach in this future, you’ll absolutely love this 4 Year Primary Songs Planning Worksheet.
And trust me, the future Primary music leader will thank you when you hand it over with all the details so she can jump in knowing what songs the children have already learned.
How to use the Primary Songs Planning Worksheet
This Primary Songs Planning Worksheet helps you create a list to track your Primary Songs taught either by calendar year or by Come Follow Me program year, whichever is easiest for you.
I’ve used a form of this (aka a scrappy written list on the back of my singing time binder) for singing time for years! It really does help so much to know what songs you’ve already taught (or the previous music leader) so you can focus on more variety.
I also love using this Primary songs planner list when filled in to pick songs to include for fun singing time review games! It’s nice to be able to include a whole bunch of variety and refresh their memory with songs the kids have previously learned.
It correlates perfectly with our Suggested 4-year Come Follow Me Primary Songs lists! That list is the result of my own planning session trying to fit in each of the suggested songs and provide variety across 4 years to minimize repeating songs so the kids have tons of exposure to a wide variety of songs!
You can also reference our helpful Primary Songs for each Come Follow Me year to help you plan out your current year or future years more easily! While you can certainly plan ahead for future years, I’d still look over your list at the beginning of each year and use the Spirit to help guide your song selections.
Filling in the Song Planning Worksheet:
Write the song titles in the first column. There’s space to include up to 15 songs per year.
Then, the second column gives you space to note any extra details. Such as which verses you’ll teach or a month this song was the focus. You could also use this column to note progress and update as you teach the song or to check through the list when preparing for the Primary Program to check off songs ready to go!
You can type and edit right onto the PDF worksheet! Or, if you prefer, print out the worksheet and keep it with your other planning files and write in to the planner as you work through the years.
