This Sunday I am going to focus on memorizing the words to all the verses of Follow The Prophet. It is such a fun song, and there are so many ways I could approach it, but I am going to keep it simple and play Echo again, with a few variations.
Variation #1: Call up the children who have memorized a verse at home this week and have them hold the prophet poster and/or a microphone. They get to sing out the phrases to be echoed, and the rest of the primary echos what they sing. Be sure to give lots of praise for having memorized at home!
Variation #2: Divide the primary into 2 groups, either boys vs. girls, teachers vs. children, right down the middle, or any way that suits your fancy. Have the first group sing out the phrase to be echoed, and the second group echos the phrase. Do this for one verse and then switch, and have the second group sing out the phrases, and the first group echo them back. Encourage them to out-sing each other, without keeping score.
Variation #3: This one is tough! But it will be a blast. I'll sing one predetermined verse, and then I'll challenge the primary children to echo a different predetermined verse:
Me: "Abraham the prophet"
Primary: "Enoch was a prophet"
Me" "Prayed to have a son"
Primary: "He taught what was good"
What a challenge! But I don't underestimate the children, I think they can do it!
