Starting January 6, 2019, Primary will consist of 5 minutes of opening exercises, plus 20 minutes of Singing Time and 20 minutes of classes, with 5 minutes in between. Leaders of larger Primaries may divide children into two groups and have one group in Primary classes while the other group is in singing time. Then the two groups would switch places, adjusting the times as needed. More details here: Preparing for January 2019: what does it mean for Primary?
Singing time will be music that supports the scriptures studied in class. This means that the music leader will be following the weekly lessons in Come Follow Me — For Primary, looking for songs that support the lesson.
