Using handbells at Christmas is great fun for the children. To see how I introduce the handbells before teaching any of the songs with handbells, you can look at the post for The First Noel.
This is another approach to a chart for the handbells. Take a look at this fun website by Inspired Instructor. The sheet music is posted there for Angels We Have Heard on High. I would print it off then enlarge it to poster size. (I find the children do better when I am pointing in rhythm at a large poster.)
The children’s eyes light up when they get to play the bells!
