I've been terribly sick with the stomach FLU all week long! Ugh. I'm on the end of it - I think. With that said, I came up with an extremely simple singing time that anyone can fill in for me in case I'm still feeling under the weather...
Our program is the end of this month and this is the last real singing time I have. The rest of the month will be spent practicing the program. There are about 4 songs that we really need to sing OVER and OVER and...you get the point. So I thought, why not have the kids have a turn to be in my shoes this week. As conductor, they need to do 3 things:
1. Know the words and sing them loudly to the Primary
2. Wave their conductor stick as we sing
3. Make sure the other kids are singing. If kids are not, the conductor can point them out with their conductor stick (we'll see if this one flies. I don't want hurt feelings).
So after I introduce my activity, I'll pick a conductor and let them come up and choose a conductor stick:
Thank you to kids toys! If you don't have a toy collection of conductor sticks, I'd suggest cooking utensils or get creative...any other suggestions? Leave a comment.
Hopefully each child will get to come up and be the conductor. While the kids are conducting, I'll go sit myself in their seat - a fair trade! If I start to get crunched on time, I'll have more than one child at a time.
