Tell your children that you are having your own Primary Singing time Olympics!!!
Write these events on different pieces of paper and tape them onto the chalkboard. Call on a child to come up and choose an event! Here are the events for our review:
High Jump, Shot Put, Volleyball, Javelin, Archery, Discus, High Dive, Pass the Torch and Olympic Ring Toss.
High Jump -
Shot Put -
Volley Ball -
Put down some tape lines on the floor and write different ways to sing on them. Let the child who chose "Javelin" from the blackboard throw the straw (javelin). Which ever line is below the straw, is the way to sing. Choose a song that needs reviewing or a fun song!
The child will get 3 chances to shoot a rubber band and hit a paper plate target. On each target is an action to do while you sing.
Here are some examples:
Swimming - move arms like swimming forward
Running - Run in place
Rowing - row like your in a kayak
Jumping - jump up and down
Kicking - kick your foot like you are kicking a soccer ball
Tae Kwan Do - move arms like karate moves (facial expressions are optional :))
High Diving -
Pass the Torch -
This torch was made from a paper towel tube and tissue paper.
***(The Olympic Flame is lighted by the Olympic torch during the opening ceremonies. The flame is a symbol of peace. Thousands of relay runners from many countries carry it to the stadium of the city hosting the games. The flame is passed by hand from one runner to the next.)
Olympic Ring Toss -
If you want to make your own, here is a picture of a simple ring toss to make. It's made from paper plates and paper towel tubes. For the rings, cut out the inside of the paper plate and color them with markers. And for the other part, cut a small hole in a paper plate and stick the paper towel tube in it. Secure with tape.
***"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle..." - Pierre de Coubertin
Thanks to all the wonderful comments that were left this past week!!! We are so glad you are using these ideas and adapting them for your own Primary!!!
