JR- did it but I don't think they understood the concept
SR-whined a bit when I told them what we were doing but by the end they had really got into the activity
Sing the Song Backwards- not literally, here is how you do it. It can be done with any song but I am going to use "Seek the Lord Early" as my example.
- Sing 1st the last phrase of the song-- "I will seek the Lord early, and He will be found."
- Sing the 2nd to last phrase--"I'll keep His commandments; His love will abound." and then continue on to re-sing the last line again "I will seek the Lord early, and He will be found."
- Then start with the 3rd to last line and finish the song from there "His living prophets in all they say. I'll keep His commandments; His love will abound. I will seek the Lord early and He will be found."
- As you can see the idea is to re-sing the song starting from the last line of the song and each time you re-sing it at another line. Have the children tell you what the 'line before' should be. Continuing until the whole song has been sung.
