When I am Baptized Signs & Grow the Rainbow

Here are the signs I'm using for "When I am Baptized." Just click on the word and another window will open up with the video of the ASL.

LYRICS & SIGNS

I like to look for rainbows whenever there is rain
And ponder on the beauty of an earth made clean again.

ChorusI want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.
I want to be the best I can and live with God again.

I know when I am baptized my wrongs are washed away,
And I can be forgiven and improve myself each day.

ChorusI want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.
I want to be the best I can and live with God again.

GROW THE RAINBOW
I am using a piece of butcher paper with a rainbow colored on it for my motivator. It will start rolled up like a scroll and the better they sing the more the rainbow will grow. Of course it will get smaller when they aren't singing well. I'll have teachers/leaders take turns unrolling so my hands are free.

See this post for a great activity to do with this song.

  2. Our primary loves learning songs in ASL, so this was a really great opportunity for me to get into it as the fairly new primary chorister. I ended up only having 10 minutes to teach both the junior and senior primaries, but they each learned both verses within about 7 minutes and we still had time for other songs! The primary president took a few minutes afterward to say how impressed she was with how well everyone had participated and how strong the spirit was felt. This was definitely one of the greatest experiences I've had in this calling. Thank you so much for this idea!
