Review “We Love to Sing!”

This is a movement song to use as a warm-up or shake-up during a choir rehearsal or class. You can also use the song to review tempo terms. This song may already be familiar to some of your students as a bible song. Teach the song by rote, and then introduce the actions.

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!”

This is a reading song. Read the rhythms for “Ickle Ockle.”

When they know the rhythm, sing the note names using letter names or solfa. When the melody is learned, have them sing the song with words. Play the game.

A silent beat is a rest. Circle the rests in "Ickle Ockle." La is the solfa note just above so. If so is in a space, la is found on the line just above. If so is on a line, la is in the space just above.

Song Used: Ickle Ockle

Review the game for “Ickle Ockle”

Students form a circle with hands joined and raised - they are the "net." Choose one student to be the fisher and one student to be the fish. The fisher goes into the middle of the circle and the fish goes outside of the circle. Sing the song. At the end of the song, the students lower their hands. The fisher leaves the net (the circle) and tries to tag the fish before the fish can get into the net (the circle). Read about rests below. Then, read the notes and rhythms for the song.

Denise Tip: To make this game work, I choose the student to my immediate right to be the fisher, and the student to the right of them to be the fish. After they have had their turns, they rejoin the circle on my left side.
