I really liked a few of the ideas found over on “In the Leafy Treetops” blog found HERE for this song (and honestly, her visuals are dang cute too ;).
I will have the pianist play through the song. I will quickly pull out each picture to review from last week, and place in the basket. Then I’ll ask kids to try and remember a picture (for Sr. I will also ask them to tell me the line of the song it goes with).
Using my choosing sticks, I’ll call out kids to see if they can remember pictures/words. If they get can guess a picture, they can come hang it up. Once all are up (may be out of order) we’ll try to make sure the pictures are in order by singing it a few times.
Then, again suggested over on “In the Leafy Treetops,” I’ll pick kids to leave the room, we’ll pull down a picture and have the child come guess which one is missing. With Sr. Primary I may put a few out of order and they will have to put them back before we finish singing the song.
Then I’m also thinking to help with wiggles in Jr. Primary to have them help me think of actions that go along with each picture as we hang each one up.
Anyway, pretty simple but just how I like it!!
