A mix of new and borrowed ideas for primary choristers!

Stand for the Right-JR.
So, i have to admit, teaching a new song isn't my strong point so when i saw this idea i was glad to adopt it for junior primary. Since this month's song is short, i knew it wouldn't take much more than a ton of repetition for junior to learn it. But how to sing it a million times without them getting bored? Taking the idea from here, I made a leg dice with 6 different ways to stand while we sing the new song. I found different clipart to represent standing. (i chose standing with hands on hips, holding hands, sway hips while standing, standing back to back, stand on one leg, stand on tip toe) I made the dice using a box as close to cube shape as i could find. Now, after i introduce the song and talk to them a bit about what it means to stand for the right, we'll just roll the dice to see how to stand while singing "Stand for the Right".
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!
