Oh my goodness, have you ever played the game "Spot It!"? Waaaaay too much fun, and the best news ever is...a fellow Primary Music Leader has come up with a Primary Singing Time version!!!
MUST. GET. NOW.
Today was our first Primary Program review, only for songs, though. When I planned out my whole year of Singing Time, I made sure to leave a few Sundays in which we rehearsed the songs prior to our official rehearsals in the chapel.
For today's unofficial rehearsal, I used "Singing Time Shout Out," the Singing Time version of "Spot It!", created by Rise and Shout on Etsy. It was an absolute hit!
I changed the chairs around from class rows to a large circle with 3-4 openings for walkways. I explained the rules and passed out the cards, and we played the game.
It's just like Spot It. Each child (and teacher, if possible) gets one card. Each card has several pictures on it, and at least one picture on one card will match a picture on any other card, so there will ALWAYS be a match. The pictures could be a thermometer so you play hot/cold or a volume speaker with a 'P' or 'F' for piano (soft) or forte (loud). I collected the cards back up after a match was made because I didn't want the kids memorizing the pictures to cheat. ;) We reviewed "I Will Follow God's Plan" and "If I Listen With My Heart" and sang through both a few times.
I plan to use this game in our next Singing Time, September 18th (next Sunday is Stake Conference). For only $2.00, this printable is completely worth it!
FYI, the game is normally $3.50, but if you hurry, you can snag it for the continued special $2 price!!! :D
