SONG: REVERENCE IS A FEELING
FOLD YOUR ARMS
Quietly stand up in front with your arms folded. Wait for the children to get quiet and fold their arms before starting...Remember your smile!
REVERENCE LEADER (Primary Openhouse)
Choose a child to be a reverence leader. Instruct the leader to walk slowly and quietly down the aisle, past the rows of children, keeping his/her arms folded along the way. With an encouraging look, he/she should show the others, by example, what they should be doing too. (As the children get used to this tool, have them think of other ways they might show their reverence in addition to folding their arms and being quiet....ie: thinking of our Savior, Heavenly Father.)
Invite the children to see if they can be like the mouse, and be very quiet. Hold up the QUIET visual.(This can be found at http://www.creativeconnectionz.com/)
HUM A SONG
Begin humming the reverence song as the pianist plays quietly. Hold up the "HUM" sign to signal the children to hum along with you. When you have everyone's attentions, then hold up the "SING" sign and lead the children in singing the reverence song.
