Singing Time Review Cards

Use these singing time review cards to review ANY Primary song!  They are especially great for double melody Primary songs.  Create different groups based on different children’s characteristics and preferences.  The options are endless and so is the singing!

Camille's Primary Ideas: Singing Time Review cards
The original idea is from the OCD Primary Chorister blog (which is no longer available) entitled Who Sings Now.  And these are my variation.

Double Melody

These review cards are best suited for songs with a double melody.  Double melody Primary songs are those that have 2 parts that can be sung together.  A few examples of Primary songs with a double melody include:

However, these are also great to review ANY song.  Scroll down for the variation at the bottom of the post for ideas!

Singing Time Review Cards

These cards are what you hold up in order to create your 2 groups:

Print on white card stock, cut the pages in half and laminate.  Find more details on singing time office supplies I recommend always having on hand.

Optionally, punch holes in the top corners and add string or ribbon so they can be worn like a necklace.  This helps free up your hands!  But it’s completely optional.  The cards can also be hung on the board.

How to Use Review Cards

Most of the groups should be pretty self explanatory. With the hamburger/hot dog and chocolate/vanilla cards, have children divide based on what they prefer – a hamburger or hot dog and chocolate or vanilla.  Then with the odd/even ages, have children divide based on if they are an odd number or an even number of years old.
 
Not all the ages in Primary are pictured on this last card as it’s just a sample of what odd/even numbers are.  Hopefully that doesn’t throw off your Primary too much. 😉

Review Cards with a Double Melody Singing Time Idea

Before Primary, divide the chairs so there’s an aisle down the middle.  Put down a long piece of masking tape to really divide the room in half if you like!
 
For the activity, I recommend an assistant.  It’s not essential, but it definitely helps.  The assistant helps lead the other group.
 
Ask your Primary President, another teacher, husband, older Primary child, etc.
 
To start, have the whole Primary review the first and second verses separately.  Post the words using this flip chart format.

Your assistant may just have to hold their words.  Tell your Primary that the verses can also be sung together, even though they are quite different.
 
Choose 2 matching cards one for you and one for your assistant.  Kids move to either side of the room that they fit in.  Then sing the 2 parts together.  
 
Repeat with new cards thus creating new groups. 

Singing Time Review Cards Variation

This activity can also double as a review for ANY song.  Just hold up the cards or wear them as necklaces to create your groups.  Sing the song as a whole or have each group sing different phrases.

Afterward, add in a simple competition to see which side sang it best!

  1. I did this today for Sr. Primary and they loved it. (Jr. Primary, we are still working on learning all the words). It wasn't the most reverent but it got them to sing it over and over again. Which was great. They wanted to do more, so if you happen to think of any more, please do post!
    Thanks for the great idea!

  2. If you're wanting a review on how this singing time went – the kids had SO much fun. Both in Sr. and in Jr. My only issue was I wish I had maybe 1 or 2 more different ways to switch it up because I had the time and everyone was willing to keep going. I'll definitely use this again!

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I hope you had as much fun using it as I did.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this idea. Hopefully, we learn the 2nd verse well enough today that we can give this a try.

    A few other ways to split:
    – Black shoes / Other shoes
    – Short Hair / Long Hair
    – Likes Apples / Likes Bananas
    – Wearing Blue / No Blue

  4. I used this Idea last month with the song “A Child’s prayer” and It was a blast. It was so much fun to put both verses together and how everyone had the opportunity to sing both parts, at the end we did girls and boys, because that is the way how we are going to do it for the program.
    Thank you so much for all the great ideas!!

    1. Hi Rocio!

      I’m delighted to hear it was a success in your primary!! Thanks for taking the time to comment and let me know :).

  5. You show a picture of a little girl kneeling with the lyric Heavenly Father, are you really there. I cannot find where to copy this picture. Can you please help me?

    1. Hi Barbara!

      I’m not sure which image you are referencing. Can you give me the link to the post (I’m assuming it’s not in this post) where it is so I can be of further help? Thanks!

      ~Camille

  6. I’m not sure what to do with the pages near the end. The ones where the kids have a large black oval for a mouth and the stick figures?

    1. Hi MaryAnn!

      I’m assuming you are talking about the hamburger/hot dog and even/odd ages. Those are just 2 groups the kids can divide into. So they pick if they prefer hamburgers or hot dogs and move to that side. Then one group is if they are an odd number years old or an even number years old. I hope that clarifies! If not, let me know.
