Use these songbird cards to practice a song that your primary has recently learned. Print the document at the bottom of the post and cut out the cards. Have the children choose a card and sing the practice song in the manner of the bird on the card. My suggestions are below.
Do the chicken dance
-or- flap your "wings"
-or- bob your head
A duck's quack doesn't echo! Have one side sing a line at a time and have the other side echo it.-or- Sing through the song without repeating any words. If you get to a word you've sung before, keep your mouth closed. (This is hard but SO fun. Only try it in Senior and only try it slowly.)
Stand on one leg.
Macaws are extremely loud. Sing loud.
Ostriches stick their heads in the sand. Sing with your eyes closed.
-or- Owls can turn their heads completely around. Face the back of the room and sing.
Penguins march together. March and sing.
-or- Penguins can swim. See how far you can sing in one breath.
Sing with a finger in your mouth like a worm.
Sing very pretty.
Toucans have long noses. Hold your nose while you sing.
Tap the rhythm while you sing.
