I have tried to make my singing time activities match the theme for this year about Choices and choosing the right. Tomorrow I plan on doing an activity that I did last year and it was a big hit!
I used two poster papers to make Door #1 and Door #2.
In my own ___________, I'll happily ______________. I'll ____________ my ______________ by my _______________ _________________. You could either have this on strips of papers or write it largely on the board.
To begin we sing the first two verse for review. Then I tell them we have one more verse and they get to "choose" doors in order to build it. I choose a child from my choosing jar to come up. They get to pick a door to fill in our first blank. Inside the doors are words that could fit in the blanks.
We continue to do this until the entire verse is built. After each word is added we sing what we have built so far, until finally we are singing the entire verse. This activity really emphasizes the words in the song and I get a chance to clarify their meanings and the importance of having them there.
