There are many
songs that teach the apostles, Bible stories, etc. You
can take a familiar song and add new verses with the students.
Lyrics to many are available
on this site.
|Make it Up
||Have students make up a tune
for the memory verse. Have them add hand motions to go with it.
||Use songs that match the
lesson of the story. Ask questions about the song's meaning and how it
relates to the lesson.
|Name that tune
||Hum or replace a song's words with "la-la"
notes. The first person to name that tune leads the class in singing it.
||Cut out pictures that match
elements of a song. Attach the pictures to cardboard or tongue depressors.
Hand out the pictures to the students and sing the song. When each child's
picture is mentioned, have them stand up for a moment.
