Different Ways to Sing

The key to helping children learn is repetition, repetition, repetition. But of course they lose interest real quick if you don't change things up and keep it interesting. I am always trying to come up with different ways to sing the same song over and over without it getting boring. These are some signs I've made up to use for reviewing/repeating songs or just to get the attention back if it's lost.

Boys Sing/Girls Sing

Lion/Lamb (Sing loud/soft)

Stand up/Sit down

Buzz/Sing the words


(You can either have the piano stop or keep going and just the kids stop singing)

I'm so glad you started this blog! I'm a HS friend of Jaime's, and love reading your family blog. I also have a music blog, primarysingingtimeideas, but I'm running out of ideas, so I'm excited to see what you come up with!

Awesome blog. I'm subbing for a couple weeks. Today I used animal singing (friend gave me the idea). Dog and cat worked great. Also acting like elephant, kangaroo, bird.
I am on your blog looking for how to get the nursery singing organized. The poor kids wonder around. I hadn't realized I would be subbing in there until 30 seconds before it was time to do it so I was not prepared. Next week, I want to really do something good.
