Sing and clap through the song.

See if the children can help fill in the blanks! What’s one word you noticed is missing? Where does it go?

You can write in the word, leave it blank and challenge the kids to say it in their mind, or come up with a unique hand action for that newly discovered word!

Keep clapping for the rest of the stars but do your special action any time you get to your discovered word.

Finally, switch and sing and clap only the star words!

Extension Ideas:

  • Have the kids compete! Divide the room into 2 groups. One group claps on yellow and sings the missing purple words. The other side sings the missing yellow words, and claps on the purple stars.
  • Have the kids try to clap and sing at the same time by the end of the song. Tell them you’ve clapped the words right back into place! Can you sing them while you clap?
  • Have the kids come up with an alternative action for the yellow stars and another different action for the purple stars. Maybe they can pat, high-5 a partner, stomp, spin, etc.

  1. There should be two purple stars for the word “Jesus.” Every other word has stars to match the number of syllables in the word. Thanks for the great idea!

  2. I love your stuff, but I can never get into download. Every time it asked for password I put my password yet it says this account already has used in that account let me login anywhere. I wish there was a better way so that I could use your great ideas to help my primary grow
