I Wonder When He Comes Again

I wonder, when he comes again

Will herald angels sing?

Will earth be white with drifted snow

Or will the world know spring?

I wonder if one star will shine
Far brighter than the rest;

Will daylight stay the whole night through?

Will songbirds leave their nests?

I'm sure he'll call his little ones
Together 'round his knee,

Because he said in days gone by,
"Suffer them to come to me."

Lesson Plans: December 2014

Flipcharts and Visual Aides for Christmas Songs:
Teach When Joseph Went to Bethlehem using scarves.   (Unfortunately, I couldn't find the author of this idea.  If it's yours, let me know and I'll give you credit.)

Build a nativity while you sing related Christmas songs.

Have the children choose from Primary song-themed snowflakes from 2013 and/or 2014

Have a Primary Song Snowball Fight!

Make Christmas Gifts of unique Primary Song CD's (with a twist).

Create a living creche while you sing The Nativity Song.

Play The Nativity Song Matching Game.

In Week 1, the theme is "The Sacrament is a time to remember Jesus Christ."  Teach the song "To Think About Jesus" in American Sign Language.  I used this easy visual from Christy's Clipart.

On Week 4, the theme is "Jesus Christ will come again."  Try teaching the second verse of "On a Golden Springtime."  or the first verse of "I Wonder When He Comes Again."
