It’s that time of year again, when we’re singing this year’s primary program songs over and over again. So every year, with my primary, we have a little party that they kids earn for practicing so hard. One year it was a pizza party, the next year a sundae party, and last year was a cupcake party. I couldn’t decide what I wanted to do this year for the kids, so I let them vote. I wrote on the board their three choices labelling them A – Sundae Party, B – Cupcake Party, & C – Pizza Party. They all wrote their choice by putting either letter A, B, or C on a paper. I then took it home and counted the votes.
Not surprising, the majority chose to have a pizza party. So I went back the next week to primary and announced that the votes were counted but if they wanted to even know what the party was, they had to pass off all their songs. This is how they are going to pass off their songs. On one side of a big poster board, I put a pizza.
On the other side, I put all the songs on that they have to pass off. Then I cut up the board. Every time they pass off the song, they earn a puzzle piece. Once all the puzzles pieces are earned, I will tape the puzzle together, then flip it over to reveal what kind of party they earned. The kids seemed pretty excited about the whole idea of the party being a mystery.
What are some review ideas are you doing in your primary?
