I am excited to have the children sing one of my personal favorites, "Love is Spoken Here," for Father's Day.
This song is beloved by many, but often avoided because it is trickier than it seems: it has voices come in a beat before the notes in at least one spot, and it's hard to lead when the boys and girls are singing different lines at the same time. I will just make sure the children know the lyrics though, then I plan to have someone in the ward lead the boys part of this song while I lead the girls part. Problem solved! I specifically want the other person leading the boy's part to be a man in the ward because I think it will be fun for the boys to look to a man they admire to lead them in their part.
I debated about how I wanted to teach this song since it is such a beloved song that many of the children know it, just from their parents. I found this lesson plan on LDS.org and LOVE it!
