Thanksgiving Rounds!

This Sunday I thought it would be fun to learn the songs For Health and Strength & For Thy Bounteous Blessings.  Both are rounds, both are about thanks, and both are on the same page!!
 
 
You will need a flip chart for the song For Health and Strength. This simple flip chart was posted HERE on the Primary Music Leader’s FB group.  You can also download it using the access button at the bottom of this post. 
 
During singing time, place the flip chart on the chalkboard in a circle, symbolizing rounds. Then divide the primary into groups and each can sing their part.  As we are singing, I’ll ask the kids questions about the song:
 
  • For what are we thanking or praising the Lord? [Health and strength, daily food]

Then I’ll put the flip chart pages for For Thy Bounteous Blessings (download using the access button at the bottom of this post) and do the same thing.  I’ll ask them questions about this song:

  • Name 3 things for which we give thanks. [bounteous blessings, wondrous word, loving kindness]
  • What words in this song tell us that this is a prayer song? [We give thanks, O Lord.]

We’ll switch up which groups start first, second, third and fourth with each song to try to keep them interesting!  I’d recommend a “group leader” for each part.  A teacher or even an older primary child who has a strong voice and can help the others keep their part.  For the younger kids, maybe keep the groups to only 2, at least to start.

UPDATE: One thing I’m going to do in addition this year…for the song For Health and Strength I’m going to have each group stand when they sing the word “health” at the beginning, when they start their round.  They will remain standing until they sing “Lord” at the end.  This will help visualize which group is starting and which group is ending!  Thanks for this idea that was posted on the FB Chorister’s group!

    1. Hi Mandy!

      Thank you for letting me know! I have searched my files and my computer and cannot, for the life of me, figure out what flip chart I am referring to here. Maybe it goes to Sugardoodle and the old links no longer work. But I’m totally baffled. Usually I can at least find them in my files. I found one on the Primary Music Leader’s FB group that should suffice for now. I’m going to keep looking or create a new one and update the post when I do. Weird!
