No/Low Prep Activities for Singing Time (Sub Music Binders)


Occasionally we have a sub pianist in Primary, and so I wanted to put together a SUB BINDER for the PIANIST in case they didn't have all the music they needed on hand.

I include in my sub pianist binder:
  • The current month's music outline
  • List of current and past Program songs, with songs included in the binder bolded and asterisked
  • Sheet music for songs in the current and past Programs that are not in the Children's Songbook or Hymnal, and other songs the children know or that I know I want to sing with them on occasion

Since I became pregnant toward the end of last year and had more nausea than I was used to, I decided it would be a good idea to also make a SUB MUSIC LEADER BINDER, in case I ever found myself not able to do Singing Time with little notice.  This could also be a starting point for someone subbing for the music leader at any time.

I include in my sub music leader binder:
  • The current month's music outline
  • List of current and past Program songs, with songs included in the binder bolded and asterisked
  • Sheet music for songs in the current and past Programs that are not in the Children's Songbook or Hymnal, and other songs the children know or that I know I want to sing with them on occasion
  • List and descriptions of no/low prep activities
  • Any helpful props that fit in the binder to go with some of the described activities

We keep both of these binders in our Primary box that gets locked up in the closet and stays with us in the Primary room during Primary.  It has come in handy many times already!
