This Sunday in singing time I thought it would be fun to pull out my chalk and play Primary Pictionary that uses only the chalkboard or white board!
It’s a great review game for a substitute or if you’re wanting more of a holiday weekend yourself (because it’s so simple)! We play this at least once a year and it never gets old!
We’ll be reviewing all the songs we’ve learned this year for the program (January – May).
Colored chalk works great, or in a pinch, grab some plain white chalk from the library! Amazon sells some here that would probably work great:
I play it 2 separate ways for Junior and Senior Primary…
For Senior Primary I divide the chalkboard in half and the primary into 2 teams (usually just split it right down the middle from where everyone’s seated). Then I have 2 kids come up and I whisper the title of a name to draw. The 2 kids will draw and have their team guess. After the title has been guessed, we sing the song, swap kids and repeat. I usually don’t keep score.
For Junior Primary I do all of the drawing and the kids have to guess the title of the song I’m drawing. If they need help, I’ll have the pianist play along while I draw. Once it’s been guessed, we’ll sing the song, erase and repeat.
Friends Are Fun and We Are Different are PERFECT primary songs to take into elementary classrooms for a Valentine’s Day class party! They emphasize kindness and being a good friend, perfect for elementary students! Use my bell charts to introduce a little music while you’re at it. So simple, kindergartners to 6th graders will enjoy this activity!
