My blog address is "primaryimpressions" because it seems that my ideas sometimes will come as impressions in the middle of the night! Whether you are a new chorister, or have been in the calling as long as I have, you are always looking for new ideas!

"Finish The Sentence"
This is fun idea when teaching a new song. I put the bell on the table and call two children up to play against each other. I have them put one hand on the table next to the bell and then I ask them to "Finish the Sentence" of the song. For example: "Choose the Right, when the ______________" Whoever rings the bell first has a chance to finish the sentence. If they are correct then I congratulate them and then we sing the song. If not, I give the other child a chance to finish the sentence. (I make them ring the bell though because that is the part they love). I was amazed at how well the Junior Primary children are able to do this. I usually don't make it as difficult for them. I do like to challenge the Senior Primary though. This is a good way to help the children to learn and remember the songs.
