Make sure to scroll to the bottom of my post for a link with more review ideas!!
I created a JPEG (photo) document that prints as a 20×30 poster. You can print this at Costco as a lustre photo (I’d recommend this over glossy) for $9.99. If you want to take this to another printer, you probably will need the PDF version. I also have a print-at-home tiled version that has a white background (you’re welcome!). It prints on 9 sheets of regular-sized paper. I’d recommend printing on white card stock, laminating then taping it together with packaging tape. If you really want to keep it simple and have an artistic talent, draw the map on the chalkboard with chalk each week.
I also had a request for Canadian sizing so a 16×20 JPEG document option and a 24×36 JPEG document are also available. I hope that helps!
In case you have different songs, I have 12 blank ones available as well.
So this week, before primary, hide each ship around the primary room and hang the poster on the board. Our activity will be called Ahoy Matey! and the kids will be using a telescope to hunt for the ships. When one is found, the kids can call out “ahoy matey!” Place the located ship on the map and sing it. Then repeat with each song. This is a great starting point as you will be able to know right away what songs need work!
For telescopes, there are 2 options…
Paper towel and/or toilet paper rolls (tell me I’m not the only person who saves junk!):
I’ve sent out a mass text to my neighbors before and was able to collect enough rolls a few days before Sunday ;).
Or Amazon sells these:
Check out my Lyrical Lava Rock lesson plan details HERE as we work on the lyrics (words) using finger lights!
Then check out my Deseret Dynamics lesson plan details HERE as we work on dynamics using a big slinky to create swells to get louder, softer, breath, etc.
Check out details for Inspiration Isle HERE as we help bring in the spirit from our singing! Simple, yet effective.
Then the last stop will be getting all the songs to Treasure Island. Check out details HERE which include a fun “treasure box.”
