Chalkboard erase addition....Stand for the Right
Like I said in my earlier post, today in senior primary we did the chalkboard erase game to learn Stand for the Right. They did great but the fun part was when a few girls suggested an idea for a way to make the game more challenging. After we had erased 10 or so words, one side of the primary sang all the words that were remaining on the board. Then we sang it again with the other 1/2 of primary singing only the words that had been erased. Then, the third time through, we combined the two groups. Not only did they have to pay attention to when it was their word(s) to sing, but I had to really pay attention on who was supposed to sing so i could point to the right side when it was their turn. They did great and it was lots of fun!
Remember the old primary songbook called, "Sing With Me" from eons ago? That orange book has many fond memories for me and is the namesake of my blog. In memory of my mom who was chorister way back then and taught me many things that I am trying hard never to forget now that she is gone. In this calling, I learn something new each week and have loved the resource of so many chorister blogs out there and thought i might chronicle a few of my own adventures. I'm a relatively new chorister and my blog is for us "greenies" who are experts at gleaning ideas from others and still learning the ropes of primary. I hope you find something useful on this site. Happy Singing!
