I have been teaching "If I Listen With My Heart" with sign language. I'm not doing it as detailed as last year, but it's still a lot of work for the kids. There are some new teachers and kids in the primary and so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to use one of my favorite activities - snipping ties off of unsuspecting men in the ward. I asked the missionaries a few days prior if they would please wear ties I provided and then use them in the activity. I get old ties, or pick them up at the thrift store. (These came from D.I., my favorite place). I pulled them out of my bag and my husband asked where I had gotten these awful ties. The uglier the better.
The missionaries put the ties on and graciously joined us about halfway through singing time. I let them decide how well the kids sang the song, and then cut their companions tie. They each cut about halfway and then we sang again. One of the little boys sang so well I let him cut a missionaries tie. He was so proud that he had out sung the older boys. It was a lot of fun, and a great way to review the song by singing over and over.
At the end I had the missionaries pick a song to sing and we sang with them. I had the missionaries conduct too.
