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 would work if you want to teach one or all of them.
- 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
Continue until all the footsteps are turned over, all the matches are found and all the words are learned!
Before primary, place all the footsteps in order on the chalkboard leading up 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 and find/discuss the matches around the room as their match is turned over.
I will also be teaching the simple “finger light” actions (without the finger lights this week) found as each phrase is turned over. You can purchase finger lights here:
To review in following weeks, I’ll bring out the actual finger lights and review in the dark. Find my lesson plan HERE.
