Alright, this Sunday was pretty crazy
This was the first Sunday that we held a combined Junior and Senior singing and sharing time and so it was busy and hectic anyway and I don’t think I helped settle them down on my end but oh well, ha ha
This lesson is a combination of a few different ideas.
First, I named this “Sync Up, Shape Up” after these two parts: lip-syncing and a shape spinner.
First, I divided them into two teams.
Then, one person came up and spun the fidget spinner on this spinner:
This spinner was for a math thing, but it’s super cute so just used the spinner.
When the fidget spinner finally stopped (which they of course suddenly spun forever and ever…)
Whatever it landed on, that was the shape they went looking for around the room. (get it? Shape Up?)
This little guy was stuck to the front of the podium and I missed it when I cleaned up and it stayed there all week 🙂 haha
I just printed the spinner twice and cut out the shapes in the 2nd one so they would be identical.
The back of each shape had a number on it that decided which song we would sing.
Then, a kid from each team went to find some lips:
These were hidden around the room
These had numbers on the back also
and these told them how many people from each team would come up to “lip-sync” with one of these:
One thing I would change here is the number 1. I didn’t think of it when I was making it but no one wants to come sing by themselves! Next time I would just put 2s, 3s, and 4s
So then we sang the song. However many people they got from each team came up and sang, holding the paper faces over everything but their lips.
Then, as they sang, their “judges” had to decide which “team” sang better and at the end of the song they had to vote on which team was better
It. was. hysterical.
I really wish someone had taken a picture of it, because it was all I could do to keep a straight face and sing the song!
We ended up singing 4 or 5 of the songs, and then stopped. This could havr gone on for another 20 minutes easily.
