It's the last Sunday of the month which means review time, and even more exciting, we have now learned ALL the program songs. Woohoo! *Pat yourself on the back and take a bow.*
So, game show fanatic that I am (I actually tried to get on Millionaire a few times), we are going to play A Minute To Win It, except I am cutting each game to 30 seconds to save time. I will be modifying each game so that they can be done in 30 seconds.
A Minute To Win It
You will need:
A stop watch or a clock or watch of any kind with a second hand.
Choose as many A Minute To Win It games as you have songs to review. You can make up your own or go to the official A Minute To Win It website and choose from all the games posted there. These are my picks:
- Back Flip
- Bite Me
- By A Thread
- Shoe Fly Shoe
- Chocolate Unicorn (but I will use something non-edible)
- On The Hook
- Breakfast Scramble
Gather all the supplies you will need for each game.
Write all the review songs (or draw a simple picture for each song) on the chalk/white board.
How to play:
Assign each class the task of choosing one contestant from their class. It could be a child or a teacher.
Each contestant comes to the front of the room and chooses a slip of paper from the hat/fishbowl/gift-box with one of the games listed on it. The contestant plays that game for their class. If they are able to complete the task in less than one minute (or in my case, 30 seconds) then the contestant chooses which program/review song to sing from the list of songs on the chalk/whiteboard. If they loose then I get to choose the review song to sing.
Explain to the children that there must be complete silence while the game is being played (no cheering or jeering) in order that the contestant has complete concentration....which will greatly aid in keeping a more reverent atmosphere!
