* 5-6 papers that have a line from one of the program songs on it
* A swivel chair. I borrowed mine from the clerk's office.
So, I brought the swivel chair in and put the papers around the chair like a clock. Then I told the children that the most reverent class would be able to send their teacher up to the front to sit in the spinning chair. Suddenly you here Silence! I am always amazed at what motivates kids.....anyway...the teacher comes to the front (remember its for the kiddos so don't worry if the teacher doesn't talk to you anymore after this...)you invite them to sit down. Then have the pianist play a bit of a song. Spin the teacher around (slowly so they don't loose their lunch) until the pianist stops. What ever paper the teacher is facing, you have them pick it up and show it to their class. If it is junior primary simply have the teacher read what is on the paper and have the class guess what song it goes too...for Senior have the class read it and guess either the line after the written line or before the written line. Then sing the song and repeat the process until all the teachers love you so much or time is out.
