Primary Chorister Printables

One of the most effective ways to get children to learn the lyrics of a song is through repetition. Of course, this can be booooooooooring!  I’ve found a good way to get children to have fun singing a song over and over is by singing it in different ways. 

Here are some pictures that will guide the children in song. Simply clicking the picture, save to your computer, and print. You could print them on a piece of cardstock. Or you could get them printed like a 5″x7″ photograph.

After printing, paste the signs to a piece of sturdy cardstock. Then tape a popsicle stick to the back (so you can hold up the sign).  Each picture instructs the children to sing a different way.

A few notes:
1. Encourage the children to learn the correct musical terminology by teaching that Forte = Loud and Piano = Soft. You will only need to remind them for a week or two. Many of the children will already be familiar with these terms.
2. Children loooove the staccato and legato signs – once they learn what they are. Legato = smooth, flowing. Staccato = short and choppy.
3. The rest of the signs are self explanatory – The children sing like the given character. (When they are to sing like Scooby-Doo, they begin each word with an “R” sound. eg: Ri Relong ro re rurch rof Resus Rhist…” This one isn’t really that great for learning words, but the children really love it.)

I hope you have fun with these signs!

*Each sign is an original image drawn by me. I don’t mind copying and using for non-commercial use. They are great for church and equally good for FHE.

    I love these signs. I would love to have more signs of musical terms as well. So, if you ever make more, I would love to know. I was thinking of allegro, andante, crescendo, decrescendo……Anyway, thanks so much for all of your ideas and for sharing them with us.
