I Will Be Valiant has such a steady and rhythmic beat to it!  Your primary will love “driving” along to the beat as they learn it in singing time!

Camille's Primary Ideas: I Will Be Valiant singing time ideas

My original lesson plan posted HERE was geared more for home centered.  But with a simple modification, it’s easy to teach in singing time. 

Road Sign Activity

Explain that road signs help us stay safe like stop signs, speed limits and other warning road signs. Ask what would driving be like without these signs? Just like road signs, music has signs that help us create beautiful music.

Pass out “steering wheels” to your primary (paper plates). You and teachers sing the song as the primary “drives” their cars in place.

Post one of the road signs on the board:

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

Describe what each musical term means. Then “drive” the car using that road sign as you sing the song:

  • Crescendo: lift paper plates wheels up to indicate when to sing louder
  • Staccato: move steering forward and back as you sing choppy (or maybe better described as short sounds)
  • Fermata: Have the pianist hold various notes and hold the paper
    plates out as you hold those notes
  • Decrescendo: lower paper plate wheels to indicate when to sing softer
  • Piano: twist the paper plates gently to indicate quiet or soft
  • Metronome mark: use the Pulse – Metronome Tap & Tempo app (or an actual metronome) to find 120 decibels and lift and lower the paper plates to that tempo
  • Forte: twist the paper plates quickly to indicate loud
  • Slur: move the paper plates to create a large rainbow with each phrase, holding the breath for each phrase

Bear testimony that we should be valiant in obeying the commandments just like we should be valiant in obeying street signs. Both keep us safe.

    1. Hi Meg!

      Do you mind clarifying what you need help with? Are you unable to access my Resource Library or you can’t find the printables for I Will Be Valiant there? I just double checked and they are there … filed under Song Title > I Will Be Valiant. But I’ll email you the link just in case.
