Welcome to my little corner of the world wide web. :) What a blessing modern technology is. I'm so grateful for the websites and ideas that others have shared that have helped them to be successful in their homes, their service in the church, or in life in general. Thought I'd pass on a few things I've learned along the way on my life-long mission to become a better wife, mother, and in my service in the church. Thanks for stopping in!

Spin the Singer

I saw this idea here and thought it would be a great way to make the repetitiveness of fine tuning our program songs more enjoyable for the kids.  While we've learned them all, there's still lots of problem spots that need some work.  Anybody else with me on that one?  We still have two month but the sooner we have them polished, the better.

Anyway,  the idea is to place papers in a circle on the floor with lots of different styles of singing a song.  In the center of the circle is a spinning chair (which my husband happens to have at the church as he's the ward clerk-so glad I don't have to haul a chair to church). :)

Then you pick 2 kids-a spinner and the person who will act as the spinee in the chair.  
After the spinner gives the spinee a whirl, wherever the spinee's feet are pointing when the chair stops, that's the way we will sing the song.  Should be simple and easy!

Here's the layout, minus the chair... 

Here are the actions I created.   If you want me to send you a copy of the PDF I created, just let me know.  I'd be happy to do it! 

UPDATE:  A big THANK YOU to Kerri who posted the actions on Scribd for me.  Looks like it's not as difficult as I was thinking it was going to be to get them into a PDF form on here.  I will try to go that route from now on.  Here's the link to them there:  Spin-the-Singer-Actions  Thanks Kerri!
