Do the movements to “We Love to Sing”

When the song is well known, have the class stand up each time they come to the words, “We love to sing!” Later, divide the class into two groups. Have one group sing the “alleluias” and the other group sing, “We love to sing!” Have each group stand up when it is their turn to sing.

Denise Tip: I like to have both groups stand and sing the final two measures, “We love to sing!”
