7 Sing and Move to #57 "One Little Candle"

This song can make a beautiful performance piece.
Divide your class into 8 groups. Begin the song with just one group.

Each time you add a candle, have another group sing. If you give each student a plastic tealight or a flashlight with the lens covered with yellow tissue, you will have safe “candles” for the students to light up as their group joins in.
