How to Play Mad Gab in Primary

How to Play:

Invite a child to come up front and help you read a silly phrase. You will want to look for good readers that can speak loudly and won’t struggle to read words. In Junior Primary, you can choose to read the cards or invite a teacher to help.

Let your helper read out the Song Mumbles card for the song you’d like to sing. They will read through the card a couple of times, speaking faster each time to make it easier to understand.

When the Primary children know the song title, they can raise their hand to guess!

When the correct song title is named, sing through the song together.

Now, pick a new helper and a new Song Mumble card to try!
