Collection of Review Ideas

It's almost time for Primary programs! It's my favorite Sunday of the year, whether my current calling is in Primary or not. :)  Sometimes it's hard to keep the songs fresh in the children's minds without having everyone feel bored. Here are a few ideas I've gathered to help you out. This is just a jumping off point, though. Please comment and share with everyone what other ideas you've found helpful!

     If your Primary kiddos are anything like mine, they've got the first verse down pat, but they always get the words mixed up on the second verse. This is a fantastic activity for senior Primary that has them so focused on their movements that they won't notice you're repeating the song a dozen times. 

     This activity covers a whole singing time, reviewing different songs with different styles.

     This activity covers a whole singing time, with emphasis on practicing the final skills your children will need to feel comfortable on program day.

     These are some methods I've used to utilize Primary time to give the program soloists more time to feel comfortable singing alone.

     Can I share something that's really helped me? Don't stress too much about the program. Look through these ideas, yes, and help the children get ready, yes, but please read through this blog post again to remind yourself of what's really the most important. 

Happy singing!
