Request and Review January Songs and Activities

Ask the children to tell you their favorite songs, games or activities that they've done during the month. List the songs/games/activities on the board, then have the student vote for their favorites. Conduct the votes with their eyes closed. As you work through the list of games/songs/activities, review the concepts that were taught in the activity. I'm often surprised at the activities that are the children's favorites!
