Easter Hosanna

Guys! Look what we found in the very back of the Primary closet!!!!!


Should we open them and find out what's inside?????

Duh!   ....Let's do it!!!

(blowing off dust *cough *cough)


It's a song!  Let's sing along to the words and see what they tell about!!!!

Okay, okay.  We didn't really find these in our Primary closet, but that would be cool, right???

Well, you know us!  We like to create fun song visuals for the Primary children to view and learn from, for Singing Time.  We feel Primary song visuals help the children, throughout their lives, to  remember the words and Spirit of the songs.

For this Easter Hosanna song visual, we printed the visuals/pictures from the fabulous Jolly Jenn (HERE) on normal printing paper (not cardstock), printed the lyrics HERE, VERSE ONE and HERE, VERSE 2, then glued them on a long piece of butcher paper.  Having each verse on their separate "scroll".

To start during Singing Time, put magnets to secure the top of the scroll to the chalkboard.

As you sing, pull the scroll down for viewing (using a clothespin works well to keep it from unrolling to where you want it).

Before you introduce the song, tell the children that you're going to read an old scroll that tells of Jesus Christ's visit to the Nephites after his resurrection. Tell them you're going to sing the first VERSE of the song and they need to listen for clues as to what happened during that time.

After you sing the first verse, leave the scroll open and ask,
"What prophecy was fulfilled?"
"What two words describe how Jesus looked?"
"What words did the Nephites cry when they saw Jesus?"

Repeat for the second VERSE:
"Jesus visited the people on the American continent after he was resurrected.  What name is the American continent go by in this verse?" (promised land)
"What did the Nephites see? and what did they come to understand"
"Just as the Nephites did, who rejoices now that our Savior is alive?"

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Now let them sing along and as you sing the chorus, have them raise up and sway a palm leaf.

HOSANNA!!!!!!!  Blessed be the name of the most HIGH GOD!!!!

Hopefully they can feel the truthfulness and specialness of this song and its message.  Jesus truly lives and broke the bands of death.  He loves us and we should rejoice everyday because of His great gift!

Happy Easter everyone!!!!!!

p.s. we plan to store these inside old paper towel rolls when Easter is over - so they won't get bent.  ...and put them in the Primary closet to be "found" again next year ;)
