So this game can be used at any time. But I thought it was a cute and clever idea for program review. There are 6 categories. Divide the primary into 2 halves.
Here are the categories
OTHER WISE KNOWN AS (50 pts)
NAME THAT TUNE (20 pts)
NEXT LINE PLEASE (5 pts)
ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS (1pt)
SCRAMBLED TITLES (40 pts)
PICTURE THIS (10 pts)
FILL IN BLANK (30 pts)
So the songs go in the categories. These things are magentic and so they are up so the kids can chose. They can go easy or hard.
Otherwise Know As (describe the song like a riddle and have them guess it)
Scrambled Title (mix up letter and have them guess the title)
Next Line (either say and line and as for the following line or sing, have pianist stop and have the helper say the next line)
Actions Speak Louder Than Words (describe a popular wiggle song with actions, guess and sing it)
Picture This (gospel art picture of main idea of a song, have them guess what song the picture represents)
Fill In The Blank (take a line from the song, and have a blank in it that has to be filled)
I thought I would reward the kids this week. They are working so hard at knowing the program songs. It can get really stale week after week of singing the same 8 songs (to death). So I told them if they sang the songs great, they'd get a few STAR BURSTS for being singing stars.
I made several signs on sticks this week to spice it. I love the STOP AND GO, one side stop the other go, a helper holds it and flips it. But I did LOUD/SOFT. I did opera/country twang. I did mouth the words/sing like angels. Stand up/sit down. Each song was different and it kept things a little more lively than just singing it straight!
