If the Savior Stood Beside Me
In Junior Primary, create a mini copy of your flip chart for each class. I condensed down my large flip chart into 8 different phrases / parts of the song.
Then made the pictures smaller and added some additional pictures to give each of the phrases a picture to go along with the phrase for the younger non-readers.
All of the pictures went into an envelope – with one for each class – so they were easy to pass out and let the teachers help the class as a group put the song back into order.
It’s important to use the same pictures as your flip chart when you can so your youngest primary classes can follow along and match by watching you use the flip chart.
Have the Junior primary flip over 2 pictures that they get to SKIP singing! Then, add 2 more to flip over, and 2 more after that until they each sing just 2 phrases from the song.
This will give you a popcorn singing affect and it will be neat to see if you can get through the whole song with children still singing.
As another idea, you could also simply print out a duplicate of your own flip chart and then have one child hold each page of the flip chart.
Call up 2-3 kids to help unscramble the flip chart as you sing through the song a few times.
