Captain CTR--Choose the Right

Howdy folks...

Still filling in for the chorister position.  My primary kids have learned our song really well, and after a short review I plan on moving to the Feb. Song..Choose The Right.  Here's my plan.

Prep:

1 willing adult volunteer who would like to dress up as Captain CTR (Green Cape, CTR Badge or Tie, The CTR shield from last week.....nothing major)

Enough small CTR signs for each child (these can be printouts from your computer)

Words or Flip Chart for "Choose the Right"

Presentation:


Review January song.  Then tell the children that there is a special guest today.  Have your pianist play "Choose the Right" vigorously as Captain CTR comes into the room.  Have Captain CTR tell the children why it is so important to always choose the right...and perhaps why he loves to choose the right (it makes him happy).  Have him give the children each a CTR sign to hold.  Then have him exit to the pianist playing the song again.   Proceed to teach the children Choose the right....and each time they Sing "right" have them lift up their CTR sign.

Sounds like fun...can't wait.

I have meant to comment and thank you for your ideas for teaching this song! I'm slow to get to things these days. But, I want to thank you for taking the time to comment and give me your ideas early. We started this song last week and the kids LOVE the chorus, and we used little signs on popsicle sticks that were a huge hit. :) Thanks for your help and your thoughtfulness. :)(one more Sunday then my baby can come, but I want one more Sunday with this song! lol)

Captain CTR came to our primary last week and it was a complete success! My husband dressed up with a cape, head scarf, CTR shield and sword. He introduced why it's important to choose the right and told the kids he wanted them to learn his "theme song." He handed out the CTR signs and the kids just gobbled it up! We even got a call from the bishop that night asking when Capt. CTR would return! Thank you for such an awesome idea.
