If you have been around here for a couple of years, you know that I LOVE to do a back-to-school singing time review activity!  And this year is no different … except that I’ve totally made it different!!  I’m super excited!  I’ve got a singing time back-to-school review 2.0!

If you want to see how I’ve run my back-to-school reviews in years past, check out past year’s HERE.  This version works best if you want to review program songs (or any songs for that matter).

Camille's Primary Ideas: Back-To-School Singing Time Lesson Plan Review

Since this year has 5 Sundays, I’ll start reviewing for program songs on the 5th Sunday.  Stay tuned for my Come Follow Me – The Restoration Primary Program Review!

I found this post HERE that had a fun twist in the comments.  And like I do best, all I did was create printables to go with it!

The suggestion in the comments is to

Use the opportunity to teach some short songs that will help the kids as they start a new school year.

So there are 6 short and fun songs to sing.  Each song coincides with a school subject along with a tip for starting a new school year.  They are:

I like the flip chart found HERE.  Then I simply cut the phrases so they can be put in order for the activity.  I used a paper clip to clip them to the file folder.

Writing

This is my fill-in-the-blank sheet.  I’ll write the answers on the board so I can re-use the printable.  Otherwise, if you fill it in, you may need 2 copies if you teach Jr. and Sr. separately.

The answers are:

  • still small voice
  • make a choice
  • always

Feel free to sing the song a few times as a round if you have time!

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

To make it a little more colorful, I printed the subject pages on various colored sheets of paper.  Totally optional.  Then I glued the sheets to manilla file folders (just what I have).

Tote them to church in a backpack if you like.  Kids can pick a subject folder from the backpack and we’ll sing the song with the associated activity.

Another option is to post the file folders on the board using magnets.  Or omit the file folders all together with the subject page on top and the activity underneath.  When a subject is chosen, remove that subject page to reveal the song and activity underneath.

Make sure to bring an inflatable beach ball (or some type of ball), enough pencils for everyone (for pitch leading) and blank sheets of paper (to color) as part of 3 of the activities.

You may want to post the words to most, if not all, of the songs.  Learn how I do that HERE.

    1. Hi Amanda!

      They are filed on my Resource Library under Category Title > Back-To-School. The file is called 2.0 Back To School and is the first one in the folder, I just double checked to make sure it’s there. I’ll email you the document as well.

  1. I just taught your Back to School 2.0 lesson yesterday! It was a huge success! Thanks for all your wonderful ideas !
    I did make one change that turned out really great! For the Friends are Fun song, after they quickly learned the song, we had the children find a friend standing next to them and we did a simple hand/clap rhythm! We did: tap legs twice, clap twice, high 10 with your friend twice and then clap once and hold for a count. then repeat! The children were smiling and giggling and loving it!
