This I Feel My Savior’s Love Syllable Singing review activity will be loads of fun in Junior AND Senior primary! You will love laughing along with your primary children as they substitute the lyrics of I Feel My Savior’s Love with different syllables!
How to Play:
In this fun game, substitute the lyrics of the song for silly sounds! This review game is a great way for classes to sing together. For this activity, start by reviewing the words to I Feel My Savior’s Love using our flipchart.
Once the kids are feeling confident with the words, introduce the activity by having the kids copy you as you say “Ooooh.” Then, try another simple sound or see if they can think of any on their own.
We’ve broken down the activity into 4 simple sounds, with one sound for every 2 lines. If you aren’t quite sure what I mean by “Syllable Singing,” here are the 4 simple sounds we’ll be using for this activity:
4 Easy Sounds for Syllable Singing:
That’s it! Those are the only sounds you’ll need for this fun activity! I would recommend taking a few minutes to practice saying the syllables out loud with the children.
To make it easier on you, just use one syllable for two lines of the song and switch to a new syllable after that. You should be able to get through all the syllables once if you stick with this pattern.
I’ve also created a printable lesson plan later in this post that includes cute signs for each of these sounds. You can use these signs to help children remember which sound they should be singing. You could also use the signs to signal two different sounds to each side of the room!
Playing in Teams:
For another fun way to use this activity in primary have each class form a little “team.” While you review the song, groups will take turns either singing the words or singing sounds. You could have one group singing the words while the rest of the group sings “Oooh” or have only one group sing the sounds!
While you sing, hold up a sign and signal to a few groups that they will switch to “sound singing.” These signs will help the kids keep track of which sound they should be singing.
- Review the first verse of I Feel My Savior’s Love using our flipchart!
- Then, introduce the activity by asking the children if they can think of any silly sounds. Give them an example of one of the syllables and ask them to say it together.
- Demonstrate each of the 4 syllables for this activity and have the children practice singing these syllables.
- Take a line of the song and sing one of the 4 syllables instead of singing the words in that line. Then, continue singing the next line of the song.
- Choose one syllable for two lines and switch syllables every 2 lines. You should be able to use all the syllables once during the first verse.
- Using the syllable signs, signal to the children which syllable to sing. You might choose to have a small group of children continue singing the lyrics while the others sing syllables.
- Split the class into groups. Using the syllable signs, signal to at least one group to sing the syllables instead of the lyrics at any point in the song. Continue to practice the song and switch the syllables OR assign each group a specific syllable to sing.
- Play “Follow the Leader!” While you sing, randomly start singing one of the syllables. See how quickly children follow you and sing syllables instead of lyrics. Invite children to take turns being the leader!
- Come up with your own silly sounds! For example, you might hum or buzz your lips instead of singing.
