Road Trip Review

I created a “Road Trip Review” to help our Primary prepare for our program this year…I’m really excited about how it turned out!  Getting ready for our program is just like taking a journey.  There is lots of planning and preparation involved before we reach our final destination.  But if we are willing to work hard, we will receive a great reward in the end!

Download my document using the button at the bottom of this post.  I created it as a 20×30 document that can be printed at Costco as a photo using the JPEG image.
 
I also have a PDF available if your printer prefers that file type.  If you want to print this at home, I also created a tiled version that prints on 9 sheets of paper (sorry the pages are all separate – the file is too large to upload as one).
 
I also have a small version that prints on 4 sheets of paper but it may be too small for the cars below to fit. Either way, I’d recommend printing on white card stock and laminating.
 

If you really want to make this simple, draw the map on the board!

I want to be able to stop and “visit” all the “sites” for the next few weeks focusing on their different aspects:
  • Word City: memorization, articulation
  • Dynamics Zone: getting louder softer, 2nd endings, no “snakes” on the S’s, following the conductor, etc.
  • Spiritual Point: inviting the spirit, standing and sitting together, reverence, etc.
  • Destination: program!
Each vehicle represents a song:

These song titles are I Love to See the Temple, Stand For the Right, Praise to the Man, Search Ponder & Pray.

These song titles are Beautiful Savior, The Lord Gave Me a Temple, If I Listen With my Heart, I Will Follow God’s Plan

This idea was originally shared on the PML FB page:

Then there are 4 blank ones in case you have more songs different than what’s above.

Print on white card stock and laminate (optional).  I recommend attaching magnetic tape on the back

Road Trip Review Singing Time Idea

The goal is to get the cars to the “destination program!”

As the Primary figures out what song each vehicle represents, they will place them on the road and sing the song.  This is the first activity.

TIP: A simple variation is to use the vehicles without the poster and simply guess the song title and sing it.

Next stop is Word City

After Word City is the Dynamics Zone.

Spiritual Point is running through the program (both in the Primary room and in the chapel).

We are Wheelie Glad You Came Treat Topper

Then I created a “we are wheelie glad you came” treat topper when you reach Destination Program (which I make sure we don’t get all the vehicles there until program day – hehe).  I’ll be filling a sandwich sized ziplock baggie with 4 small chocolate donuts or “wheels” (that this topper attaches too):

You can either use the additional activities, or simply use the poster and work on getting those cars to the program destination by itself.

  1. So cute!!! I always do an ice cream review game where they earn toppings and we have the ice cream party after our Saturday rehearsal, but I may do this idea next year! I'm going crazy trying to figure out what BUSAV is though… It will probably hit me in the middle of the night, but what is it?!

  2. So, am I downloading it incorrectly? I had to change the setting at Sams for a 20×24 print, not a 20×30. It had it all cut off otherwise. I had to do the same for the Pioneer poster you made.
    Not that 6 in. is too different. But things like this, Bigger is better 🙂

  3. Hi Micah!

    The poster is set to print as a 20×30 document – if you don't print it as that size, yes it will be cropped. I don't shop at Sam's so maybe they don't offer a 20×30 document, only a 20×24. I'd suggest trying to find a printer that will print a 20×30 document. Sorry I'm not more help.

  4. Hi, Camille! THANK YOU for this site! It is my absolute favorite resource since I was called to being a chorister a month ago with no knowledge of what to do. 🙂 You have been the best lifesaver!
    One question for you… what font and size did you type on the cars for the review? I need to make a couple of additional ones and am going to try to make them match.
    Thanks again for sharing your talent. You're the BEST!

  5. I love this, thank you! Your site has been SO helpful for me as someone totally new to this calling.One question: how many weeks before the program do you start your review game?

  6. Hi Jen!

    I usually figure out when our program is and work backwards. So for my primary, our program is October 16th (the 3rd Sunday in October). The primary practices the whole program 2 weeks prior so that lands me on the 3rd Sunday in September because of General Conference. I'd use as many weeks as I could in September with my Road Trip Review. In a nutshell, I usually take the whole much of September to review for the program.

    I hope that helps.

  7. This is amazing! I'm totally using this. Thanks you for posting it and for sharing your wonderful ideas. I started following this site a while ago and just realized that you are my cousin, Camille. Yea! -Elizabeth Kunz Burt

  8. Thank you so much for all you share; it is so incredibly helpful! I decided to do this roadtrip review this year and I'm wondering if you could send me a link to the rest of the posts that went with it that show how you reviewed the songs? There's mention of such at the end of the post and I would love to see it. Thank you!

  9. Hi Nancy,

    I've updated the post with links to the various activities associated with each of the stops – thank you for asking for that – I've been meaning to update this post for a while!
