A Case of the Musical Measles
Musical Measles are a fun way to have a choose and review day. I handed sheets of stickers to the teachers, so that they could determine who was singing well. The more they sang, the more "measles" they would get.
We sang some favorites in Jr. Primary and reviewed this month's song. The little ones really tried hard to participate this week, it was nice.
In Sr. Primary we had Janice Kapp Perry day and sang songs of hers from the songbook, plus Holding Hands Around the World. They also did a fantastic job on this months song and did the signing really well too. It was heartwarming.
I think it's fun to note that the little kids are so thrilled to get the measles, and they don't mind them anywhere on their faces. The older kids like to make beards, eyebrows etc. I enjoy their creativity and their enthusiastic singing voices so that they can get measles. I've been doing musical measles for singing time since the mid 1990's. It seems that this simple activity never loses it's popularity.
