I had to jump on the band wagon and give these Position Cards (which are also known as Primary Yoga) a try! They provide some fun(ny!) movement for the kids as you review lots of songs!
Thanks Jeri for the original idea you posted on Facebook (you can find it HERE
– this link also includes a document that Emily created which is similar to what I have made below – I mostly wanted them on half size sheets of paper).
You can download my Position Cards/Primary Yoga cards using the access button at the bottom of this post. (Jeri’s look hand-drawn which wouldn’t be too hard either!). I printed mine on white card stock, cut them in half and laminated them. I may punch a hole in the corner and put them on a ring for easy flipping, but totally optional.
UPDATE: I made 12 more position cards HERE so be sure to check them out!!
To use them, Jeri says, “Basically you hold up the card and the kids mimic the position while they sing.” Sounds pretty easy to me! Can’t wait to give them a try!! I’ll probably switch out cards every few lines of the songs. We’ll be reviewing all of our January – May 2014 program songs (emphasizing He Sent His Son & I Will Follow God’s Plan as it’s been a while for these two).
It was also suggested to move on to the next position card when everyone is in place and singing ;).
Another idea is to assign each word a position so when that song is sung, everyone has to move quickly into that pose. Fun!
