Easter Hosanna Action Words

Hand actions are probably in my personal list for the best ways to teach a primary song. The reason I love this type of activity so much is because it gives a concrete representation of the lyrics that the children can easily remember later on!

For this particular song, I decided to keep it super simple and use just a few hand actions! Most of the hand actions in this pattern can be used for a full phrase of the song, and a few are used for specific words.

Let’s learn some actions! Start by reviewing the first verse and chorus with this Easter Hosanna flip chart at the beginning of singing time.

To help us remember the words to this song, we’re going to learn some actions! Post the action words printable on the board.

Let’s look at the first picture. What action might this be? Cup your hands around your mouth and pretend like you are speaking in a microphone. This action will be used when we sing “prophecies.”

Continue trying out the actions as you say or sing each line. I recommend taking it line by line before trying the entire pattern. One way to do this is to say each line using the action and have the children repeat it back to you.

Then, try the phrase with music! By teaching a little bit at a time, you can help your primary children remember the lyrics while staying engaged the whole time!

Are you ready to try the entire song? Let’s do it! Sing though the whole song with the action words. Practice a few more times as your primary children get more comfortable with the actions. This is a great way to get in lots of repetition!
