Singing Time Introductions
You need some name tags. Your primary will love these colorful “hello, my name is…” labels (Amazon affiliate link):
Then grab some markers so everyone can write their name on their name tag.
Singing Time Idea
Pass out a label and marker to everyone in primary, including the teachers.
TIP: Have the teachers and primary presidency help the younger children write their names.
Everyone places their name tags on their chests. Have the pianist play The The Here We Are Together as everyone prepares their name tag. You and the teachers sing the song. Post the words like I do HERE:
- favorite primary song
- favorite scripture hero
The children can also make a unique/funny move (like bowing, or a “rock-on” sign, etc.) to be done when their name is sung.
- Only introduce everyone new in primary (Sunbeams, new senior primary kids, new jr. primary kids, new teachers, etc.).
- Sing by classes, repeating the few measures of music to fit everyone in one round.
Time permitting, repeat several times with:
- The lights off
- Eyes closed
- Facing the back wall
This tests their knowledge to see if they can do it without looking at name tags for help!
- STOMPING and stop your feet
- CLAPPING and clap your hands
- POUNDING and pound your fist into your other palm
- SWISHING and rub palms together
- LAPPING and clap hands on legs
