To introduce “The Holy Ghost” (CS 105) today, I started by using Bridge’s idea from her blog, The Ordinary Adventures of a Primary Chorister. I sang the song, while we softly clapped the “constant” beat.
I then had a child come up and choose a triangle from the board. On the back of each triangle I had written a discovery question for the song. After reading the question, singing the song to find the answer, and again reviewing the discovery question, we used the triangles to form quilt blocks to build a tiny comforter (emphasizing the Holy Ghost being the Comforter).
I also had the board set up as pictured above to help everyone with the words of the first verse. Next week I will do something similar to teach the second verse, and I will add to our already built comforter from today.
The third week I will introduce some simple sign language to reinforce what we will have already learned.
