Primary Program Report Card

Here’s the singing time review activity we’ll be completing until our primary program in October: Primary Program Report Card…

You can download my documents using the access button at the bottom of this post. I created the 2 main pages for Jr. and Sr. primaries.  If you only have one primary, only print one of the pages.  I printed everything on white card stock and then glued the “Report Card” pages onto a manilla file folder (super easy for storing!).
The song tags are glued on to clothespins…
If you have Jr. and Sr. primaries, you’ll need to print 2 sets of this page…
Just make sure when you glue on the clothespins, you glue one set on the right side of the tag and the other set on the left so they aren’t upside down!
If you have different songs than I have, there are some blank ones…
The goal is simple: get all the songs pinned in the “A” section by program time.  I have five weeks of actual singing times so we’ll be working on roughly 2 songs per week.
Before Primary, I’ll hang the manilla folder on our pin board (some super strong magnets or an easel could probably hold it as well) and I’ll have all the pins across the bottom.
I’m going to recruit a Primary Presidency member or a teacher and they will grade us as we sing each song.  I created a grading sheet to help them (also available to download via my Resource Library).  
Using it just takes some of the guess work in giving a grade.  They can sit and observe, make notes and give a final grade.  I’m thinking I’ll have them give our final grade at the very end of singing time – give us a little suspense!  I printed off 5 pages so a different grader can use one each week and write notes in the space provided if they want.
Before we begin, I’ll discuss the various criteria for each letter grade.  Just for fun, I may have the kids show me what an “F” sounds like!  Then, have them try to show me  their “A” quality singing.  We may have to stop places, work out kinks, learn the words better (post the words then put them away), practice standing and sitting together, use more dynamics, etc.
It’s a simple approach because I’ve found if we have too much going on, the kids tend to focus more on the activity than their singing (okay, and I’m kind of excited to use the same lesson plan for 5 weeks!!)
The week of the program, I’ll bring a treat IF (I’ll be generous, ha!) all the songs are “A’s!”  As for a treat, I’m sure it will be a something-or-other from Costco!

  1. This is a really cute idea! As I was reading it, I also had the thought of making clothespins with other categories that they can be graded on, i.e. eyes on me, hands at side, smiling, quiet voices before and after song, etc. Then I'll probably pass out those clothespins to the kids each song and let them be responsible for giving out the grade for those areas.
