Choose the Right Way Sign Language

How to Play:

Sing through Choose the Right Way (Flip Chart here) once before introducing your signs.

Tell the kids you hear a few special words in the song, and you want to add sign language to help you remember those special words. Can they copy you? Make the sign for “right”. Let’s try it with the song. Every time you sing right, let’s make this sign.

Continue singing through the song and adding a new sign after each verse.

When you’ve added all 4 signs, invite several children or one of the classes to come up front to sing with the signs! Everyone else follows along, too. Then, switch to new volunteers or a new class and repeat.
