Ultimate List of Different Ways to Sing

Ultimate List of Different Ways to Sing for REPEATING a Song!!!

The children won’t get bored with all the possible ways to sing any reviewing song!  These are also a great way to practice for the Primary Program.  You can plug these in with any pick-and-choose singing activity, on a spinner board, write them on a slip of paper and put them in a box, or just write them on the board and let them pick!

Trust us, you’ll want to Pin this for later!!!!

So without further ado:
