I really love this song. I have loved it since I was a little girl. I like the image of holding my light in my hand for all to see. I started teaching this song about the middle of October. The first thing I noticed is that the notes are a lot higher than I remembered. I don't have a super high voice anymore and it's hard to hit the notes. The second thing was the kids seemed to struggle with it. Two weeks ago I used our CTR beanbag and we played the game where one child waits outside while another hides the beanbag in the room, then the kids sing louder or softer to help them find the beanbag. That gave us a lot of repetition with the song and the kids are singing it better. I want to include it with our Christmas songs for Sacrament meeting so that all our songs are themed around light.
One of the teachers said they needed more words on the cards. More words got me thinking, so when I went to do The Spirit of God last week, I went with a poster.
