2nd Verse "If I Listen With My Heart"
First we will review last week's verse and message (what listen with our hearts mean? and how we listen with our hearts). Then I'm going to grab one class and bring them to the front and play the telephone game. I want to use a reverent but silly phrase so it gets really mixed up by the end. Then we'll talk about how if we're hearing but not really listening we can lose the meaning of the message being presented. I'll talk about how our living prophet today speaks the exact words Christ would say were He here on earth. etc. etc.
I will then post a poster with reminders from this verse . . .the pictures will represent the following words (hear, prophet, speak, Christ, say, here, earth, talk, today, prophet, teaches, live, righteousness, peace). I will sing through the song one time alone just to let them hear the verse while doing the signs to those same words and then proceed to teach them the signs line by line. If needed I like to mix it up in Jr. Primary with wiggle songs and in Sr. Primary with challenges like each row is assigned a line and they stand and sing it when it's their turn then we switch it up until everyone knows every line.
