To encourage the kids to master the program songs for this year, tell them that you are going to write a song. On a piece of poster board or large paper, draw a musical staff- five parallel horizontal lines 3″ apart. You can add the treble clef (the symbol on the left) if you like, but it’s not necessary.
Print the document at the bottom of the page and cut out each of the images. I’ve created a music note for each song the children should have learned this year. As the children master each song, let them add the corresponding music note to the staff. Make sure to keep them in order, but let the children decide on which line or space they’d like to place the note. When the children have learned all of the songs and placed all of the notes, have the pianist play the song for them. Sing the words “now we know our pri-ma-ry songs” to the tune they’ve written.
