This Sunday I was scheduled to do the Singing Science Experiment from http://thecrazychorister.blogspot.com/2009/05/review-activity-singing-science.html. I am still going to use it for sure, and LOVE the idea, but I felt like for this Sunday we needed something a little . . . . smaller.
My plan is to post paper footprints all around the room. The front will say a choice that can be made to Choose the Right (the week's theme), and the back will have a song written on it. Since I want to be sure to review I Am a Child of God again, I will have each verse written on one footprint. I'll also use I Want to be a Missionary now (our option song), as well as songs about choosing the right, choices, etc.
I will select a child to pick a footprint. They will tell us about the choice listed and how it involves choosing the right, then will announce the song and post the footprint on the board along a chalk-drawn path leading to a picture of Christ.
Next I will call another child to come roll the "Ways to Sing" box that I posted about yesterday, which I think will make the review more fun. We will sing whatever song was picked in whatever way it's rolled . . . should make things interesting!
On the Stop/Go card, instead of making a Stop/Go Popsicle stick set, I'm really excited to make a flashlight-operated traffic light! I will cut circles out of poster board or foam board, paint or color the board to look like a traffic light, and then past colored vellum (red, yellow, and green) on the back. Whoever rolls that card will get to use a flashlight and stand behind the traffic light to direct the singing - normal speed, slow, or stop. I will post a picture once I get it all made - just need a few more supplies!
