My plan for this week is to use the Nephite children cut-outs (from the Primary Visual Aids Cut-Outs, Set 6-People of the Scriptures) and place them on the chalkboard around the picture of Christ and the Book of Mormon Children (No. 84 in the Gospel Art Book). I'll write discovery questions on the back of each cut-out and invite the children to choose them. This will give me an opportunity to sing the song again several times and for the children to listen and then sing the phrases with the answers. Hopefully, I'll be able to begin the second verse as well. The questions are:
- "Where were the children gathered?"
- "What did the children see?"
- "What did Jesus do?"
- "What did the children feel?"
- "What two things did I not do?"
The rhythm of the music is a regular, even beat and suggests walking. I can imagine the ancient children walking to gather around Jesus. I'll pass out the rhythm sticks and let the children tap them as we sing the song one final time.
