Have I Done Any Good First Letters

Back when I was a primary music leader a few years ago, my primary kids LOVED any kind of puzzle! My Senior primary kids especially enjoyed showing me just how smart they are!

I’ve created this fun & simple printable logical conclusion puzzle with only the first letter of each word! You’ll also notice that some words have been replaced with pictures. Prep for this activity by printing and cutting out each phrase into word stips.

At the beginning of primary, review the first verse and chorus of Have I Done Any Good (lyrics here!).

Then, tape up the word strips. Hm, these words don’t make any sense! Can you help me decode the puzzle? Let’s sing through the song again and see if we can figure it out.

Sing through the song again, allowing the children to think about the jumbled-up word strips on the board. After you finish the song, ask the children if they have any ideas. What might these letters mean? What do the pictures mean?

Allow some guesses and test it out! Try singing through the song to see if your pattern is right. Have you figured out that each letter represents one word in the song? Nice work!

Focus the rest of the activity on putting the word strips in the correct order! You might do this by singing each line individually and looking for the matching first letter strip. I also have some additional challenges below that might be fun to try!

Once you have all the first letters in the correct order, sing through the song one more time. Everyone did a great job solving the puzzle!
