I’ve got a unique singing time lesson plan idea for teaching Choose the Right that incorporates stepping on footsteps and some great “choose the right” activities all found from The Friend! I’m only teaching the first verse of this song but this activity works if you want to teach them all.
- the right
- when a choice
- is placed
- before you.
- In the right
- the Holy
- Spirit guides;
- And its light
- is forever
- o’er you,
- When in
- the right
- your heart
CTR Game from The Friend
Next you need the CTR Game from the February 2012 Friend magazine found HERE on page 43 printed on card stock (optional), laminated (also optional) and cut out (not optional ;). Take the 10 pairs (20 total cards) and tape one of each of the pairs onto the remaining 10 footsteps.
Choose the Right Activity
Before primary, place all footsteps with the words/phrases in order on the board leading to a picture of Christ so the words/pictures face the chalkboard.
Pass out the matching pictures that are not on footsteps randomly to the children. Call on children to turn over the footsteps in order. Sing the phrases as they are turned over. Find and discuss the matches around the room as they are turned over.
Finger Light Actions
For added movement, teach simple “finger light” actions (without the finger lights this week) as each phrase is turned over. Find these actions HERE.
I recommend these finger lights (Amazon affiliate link):
To review in following weeks, I’ll bring out the actual finger lights and review in the dark. Find my lesson plan HERE.
