Praise to the Man posters
Ok, so i have taught this song the past couple weeks without a poster but junior primary was struggling a bit so I finally decided to make one. Besides, the president told me she liked posters because then we can just pull them out anytime to sing, either with a substitute or a couple years down the road. So...i made a simple poster. I like to be able to cover up different portions as we learn the song and it helps the young ones have a solid visual to stick in their heads. I used these today and i was amazed at how much it helped junior-especially with the big words! (i put "ascended" going up to remind them that it means "going up" and "vain" is in stair steps down to remind them to sing 4 steps on that word-i'm going to go back and put a fermata on "tyrants" too)
Remember the old primary songbook called, "Sing With Me" from eons ago? That orange book has many fond memories for me and is the namesake of my blog. In memory of my mom who was chorister way back then and taught me many things that I am trying hard never to forget now that she is gone. In this calling, I learn something new each week and have loved the resource of so many chorister blogs out there and thought i might chronicle a few of my own adventures. I'm a relatively new chorister and my blog is for us "greenies" who are experts at gleaning ideas from others and still learning the ropes of primary. I hope you find something useful on this site. Happy Singing!
