Here We Are Together!

I thought it would be a perfect week to sing Here We Are Together and introduce all those cute Sunbeams into Jr. Primary, all the graduating Jr. Primary kids into Sr. Primary, and introduce all the kids to their new teachers.

I'm going to pass out 1" x 3" white labels and markers to all the kids and teachers. They can then write their name on the label and wear their name tag (teachers will probably need to help a few of the younger kids).

Like these from Amazon:

One class at a time come to the front of the room.  They will tell the Primary their name and something unique about themselves.  I'll also let each child hold one of our birthday photo booth props (details HERE):

Then we'll sing Here We Are Together using the children’s names from the class (the pianist may have to repeat those few measures where we sing the names).  Then we'll switch out classes until everyone has had a turn up front.  I plan on including teachers as well.  Then when everyone has been introduced we will "test" to see if we can sing the entire primary in one big swoop.

Optionally, you can also bring in dice I made HERE to sing it a few fun ways each time.

If I have extra time, I'll pull out my wiggle worm jar found HERE and get the Sunbeams familiar with all that it entails and maybe pass out several of the mini Songbooks our primary owns to the Sr. primary and we can sing some favorites!

Happy New Year everyone!!

Wasn't quite ready to start our new song for January and was looking for a fun way to begin the year. This is perfect. Thanks for the idea.
