I've decided our children need to know a few more reverence songs. I need one that is easily learned because we are so involved with "I Know That My Savior Loves Me." So I've chosen "Reverence" (CS-27). Surprisingly, our children don't already know this one. In our branch many of the children are not regular attenders. This can be an enormous challenge for teaching songs because the kids are not the same every week! But, I love attending in the branch for many other reasons, so I put up with the challenges.
I've prepared this snowflake as an attention getter and will begin by saying "I'm going to let this snowflake fall. Before it hits the floor, can you think of one way you could be reverent?" Are you ready?" After inviting a couple of responses, I'll teach the song using the "echo" method. Since there are only two phrases I'm sure the children will pick it up quickly. I'll conclude with the snowflake again, this time asking them to think of one thing they are thankful for.
