We’re having fun teaching Did Jesus Really Live Again Find the Word in this unique singing time lesson! You’ll use the printable pages to play a fun find the word game with a few ways to play!
You can even make a really cool interactive slider for the words, if you’re crafty and want to get fancy! Maybe the word strip to a colored piece of paper and then attach the word slider behind the page.
This activity is a wonderful way to implement the representation of words learning style in Primary! There’s even an adaptation for Junior Primary with visual intrigue!
Did Jesus Really Live Again Find the Word
This is a fun spin-off activity from our similar Eraser Pass games. You still have the fun of decoding which word is correct, but in a different and fun format!
How to Play:
Sing through Did Jesus Really Live Again once before introducing the activity. You may wan to start with this Did Jesus Really Live Again flip chart to help you introduce the words before getting started.
Post the Did Jesus Really Live Again Find the Word posters up on the white board. Tell the children, they’ll need to be your detectives. There looks to be some missing words.
Have the words or pictures hidden around the room. Pick a volunteer to look for a word while you sing through the song once.
After the song, ask the children if they can help place the word. If they need help, ask them to sit down and listen closely to the song while you sing through it again, with another helper searching for the next clue.
In Senior Primary, use the set of 4 words. They’ll have to not only find the correct spot, but then place it properly with the right word showing! Let them use scissor to cut away the wrong words, then post the correct word in the spot!
In Junior Primary, you can use the pictures instead of the words and fill in the missing spots with the clipart included!
Did Jesus Really Live Again Find the Word Game Extension Activities:
- When you’ve finished adding back all the words, sing only the missing words. Now, sing with just the original words, skipping your newly added words.
- Ask the children to pick a fun action you can do whenever you sing one of your new words. Maybe you can stand on one, then sit on the next throughout the song. Or stomp for each missing word.
- As an alternative to hiding the words, you could cut out holes instead of blanks, and create an interactive display where they have to slide the words up and down until they stop at the right one. Let your volunteer pick which spot they want to try to fix, then sing through the song after each fixed word.
- Another Alternate: Simply let the children fill in the blank words if printing is an issue. They can listen closely and write in the words that are blank.
