Markers is a simple singing time review activity that only utilizes the white board along with a few colored dry erase markers and an eraser! You can review any song or multiple songs!!
I’ll have the primary help me write the words to our song on the chalkboard. Similar to this picture here but with the song we’re working on:
I’ll choose probably 3 children at a time to draw a marker (or any other colored item you have will work great) and the color they choose tells them what to do.
- Red: erase a word
- Blue: underline a word to hum
- Green: replace a word with a drawing
- Orange: put a box around a phrase to sing with eyes closed
- Brown: make up a sign for a word and put a star around that word
- Purple: share a way you can share the light (or gospel) you’ve been given with others
Then we’ll sing it according to how it’s been “marked” then repeating a few more times until the song has been completely marked. Once it’s full, we’ll erase and repeat with the 2nd verse, then the 1st if time permits.
This may be a little technical for Jr. so if I feel inclined, we may just be playing Hot ‘N Cold found HERE
except using the 3 puppets as our hiding object. Whatever object we are hiding is what verse we’ll be reviewing. I will post the words (like I do HERE
) at the beginning of singing time and gradually take them away so by the end, words are hopefully memorized.
Easy! Just the way I like it!
