Back to School Ideas
(Credit Unknown) I've been thinking
about something fun to do for Back to School (our school starts Aug 14). I'm
going to combine a couple of ideas I read on this website last year. I'm getting
pencils for everyone and will write a star or something on the eraser of a few
of the pencils. Pass the pencils around in one of those plastic boxes to the
kids and let them pick one to keep. If they get one with a star they get to come
up and pick a folder out of my backpack. I will have folders with school
subjects written on them. On the inside, I will have a Primary song that goes
along with the subject. If the song is somewhat unfamiliar I can also put some
visual aids so they can sing it. The subjects and songs I thought of are:
Biology = "My Heavenly Father Loves Me"
Art = "Primary Colors"
Spanish = "Children All Over the World"
Anatomy = "Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes"
Music = "Hum Your Favorite Hymn"
Reading = "Books in the Book of Mormon"
Recess = "Do as I'm Doing"
Math = "The 10 Commandments" (maybe)
