This singing time lesson plan is for teaching the second verse to Dare to Do Right.  It continues on with a clever code.  However, this code is completely different from code used to teach the first verse!  Jr. and Sr. primary variations are below.

Camille's Primary Ideas: Dare to Do Right second verse

You can find my lesson plan for the first verse HERE.  The “dare” medals can also be used for the second verse but in another way as well!  Don’t you just love re-using work you’ve already done??  I know sure do!

Camille's Primary Ideas: Dare To Do Right Singing Time Lesson Plan Idea

My Dare to Do Right singing time ideas for the second verse come from modified suggestions found in A Children’s Songbook Companion book.  More details on this book can be found HERE if you like.  I LOVE this book and glean ideas from it regularly!!

Dare to Do Right Code

To start singing time, place the Dare to Do Right code for the 2nd verse on the board:

Dare to Do Right second verse

Post words like I do HERE to the second verse.  Sing through the verse and see if the children can figure out which words belong on the lines.

If they need a hint, pitch lead with your hand as you sing it.  The lines are essentially the melody of 2 phrases found in the second verse (the first verse too if we’re being technical!).

  • #1 references to the line, “other men’s failures can never save you.”
  • #2 references the line, “stand like a hero and battle till death.”

Sing it through a few times to help figure out the code.  Sing it again to check answers.  If you want, fill in the words on the lines (maybe laminate and use a dry erase marker so you can erase the answers to re-use the code).

Then once the words are figured out on the code, place this definitions page on the board:

You can access my printables at my Resource Library.  Instructions for accessing my Resource Library are found at the bottom of this post.

Second Verse Definitions

Have the primary decide which definition goes to which code.  Draw a line using chalk to the correct answer.

  • Code #1 is the second definition on the page: Don’t excuse your mistakes because of the mistakes others make.
  • Code #2 is the first definition on the page: Life can be a battle and we are admonished to endure to the end.

Quickly discuss these statements maybe with some examples and sing again.

Pass out the dare medals used when you taught the first verse to several primary children.  Or make enough medals for everyone.  Have everyone stand and pitch lead with their bodies as the notes go up and down, using the code on the board as a reference.

If you don’t have enough medals for everyone, pass a medal to another child who didn’t have one and repeat until each child has had a turn to pitch lead with their bodies while wearing a medal.

Camille's Primary Ideas: Dare To Do Right Singing Time Lesson Plan Idea

To simplify for Jr. primary, use the code with the definitions out at the beginning, and simply discuss what each phrase means using the definitions as you decipher the codes. 

Give lots of hints to help with the code, pitch leading with your hands as you sing.

Pitch lead using bodies with the dare medals as you decipher the code.  Then continue to pitch lead the entire song.

At the end, challenge the children to dare to do right every single day no matter the circumstance.
