I Spy with my Primary Eye

I used this for a sharing time idea, but I realized this could translate into a great idea for singing time as well.

Prep:

Objects or pictures that teach a line or concept of the lesson (song)

Presentation:

Put up the pictures or objects around the room.  Have the kids make glasses around their eyes with their hands and have everyone say..." I spy with my Primary eye..."  and then you fill in the blank with something like...."a picture of the temple" or "something we do before we go to bed at night (picture of praying child)"....etc.  Choose a child to find that object in the room.  Sing a line of the song it goes with, or teach the concept from that picture.  Proceed until all objects/pictures have been found.

Jr. Primary LOVED it, and really got into it.  With Sr. Primary, you could step it up a notch and attach a Scripture reference and  have them look it up.

Have a nice week.

I just sat down at my craft area to make some fun posters for singing time to review all songs that we have learned this year so far and I had my idea all in mind and I had the thought to go to blogs and I came to this idea and it is so simply and yet perfect!!! I can combine my idea with this idea and it will be something new and fun for the kids on a review day to make singing the same old songs over and over new and fun and not sooo boring! So thank you!!!

I loved this idea for Pioneer Day Singing Time. The kiddles used their Pioneer Goggles and I put up several different pioneer pictures. They loved it and it was such a simple fun activity!

The new primary song for 2012 is As a Child of God. I have made a slideshow to the words and music on Youtube and wondered if you could help me get the word out? It always helpful to be able to hear an unfamiliar song a couple of times and I hope that this will be useful to other primary choristers as they prepare for the new year.

Thanks for your help!
