Just like the classic kid’s song BINGO, gradually omit singing the words to The Wise Man and the Foolish Man and replacing them with the well-known actions instead! Get ready to challenge your Primary!

These actions for The Wise Man and the Foolish Man demonstrated are my favorite:

These are the actions in written form:

  • The Wise Man: point to temples
  • Built: pound fist with opposite hand then switch
  • His house: create a rooftop with fingertips touching
  • Upon a rock: create a fist with one hand and pound it into palm of other hand
  • And the rains came tumbling down: create rain drops with fingers gradually moving downward
  • The rains came down: create rain drops with fingers gradually moving downward
  • And the floods came up: draw hands upward
  • And the house: create a rooftop with fingertips touching
  • On the rock stood still: pound fist into other palm
  • The foolish man: shake head wag finger like “no”
  • Built: pound fist with opposite hand then switch
  • His house: create a rooftop with fingertips touching
  • Upon the sand: move fingertips and wave hands back and forth to create sand
  • And the house: And the house: create a rooftop with fingertips touching
  • On the sand washed away: move hands away from body as if clearing something.

BINGO Actions

Once the actions are learned, gradually stop singing the word associated with each action but still do the actions.  Similar to the song B.I.N.G.O. when you gradually eliminate the “B” and clap instead, then the “I” and so on.

I recommend starting with the chorus words:

  • Rains came down
  • Floods came up
  • House
  • Rock/sand
  • Stood still/washed away

Then if you still have time, do the same for the verses.  Post the words using this flip chart format as needed.
