Okay, so I have a general direction of how I want to teach the 1st verse to Choose the Right:
I still want to incorporate my footsteps I used a few years ago (find those HERE). I'll have the footsteps lead up to the chalkboard with my chorus visuals I used 2 weeks ago (find those HERE). Since there are more than 26 words (the number of footsteps I previously made) in the 1st verse I'll just combine phrases. For instance, one footstep will be "choose" and the next will be "the right" then "when" then "a choice" then "is placed" then "before you" and so on.
Anyway, I want to implement a little more with the song...to try to include some teaching moments because I really feel there is a lot more that can be learned than just the words.
So I was browsing the February 2012 Friend and saw this cute CTR matching game:
Details are HERE. I want to somehow implement it with my footsteps but can't get the 2 ideas to mesh...any suggestions?? I was thinking of maybe posting the "choosing the right" options on the board and somehow distributing the counterparts - either around the room, or taped onto footsteps I pass out, etc. but I'm at a loss!
I would like it if I could incorporate the matching into the foot stepping so we'd sing a few steps, find some matches/discuss, step and sing more, match/discuss...but maybe it can't work.
What are your brilliant ideas?? Thank you!!
