Reply to "Singing with Kids in the Era of COVID"

Perhaps for just such as time as this...

Here's a fun way to get kids singing to each other

Our Writing Team came up with a super-playful way to get kids singing without being so self-conscious that utilizes "social distancing" of-a-sort as its gimmick.

Supporting Members of can see the complete lesson that features this playful "singing in the shower" technique.  It is part of their Jesus Feeds the 5000 lesson set.

The technique essentially creates a "singing space" -- shower or studio, or stage (whatever) in which different students are video recorded as they sing (from a songsheet or flipchart.  

But here's the fun twist: the videocamera/cellphone is connect to a TV screen on the other side of the studio or shower wall where other students can watch the performance "live" on the TV as a "studio audience." Everyone wants a turn. 


This photo comes from the "pre-Covid" lesson. To make your setup Covid-safe, add masks and a divider between the two students.

This Writing Team lesson is open to our Supporting Members (a great bargain at $45/year!). Here is a link to the lesson summary that is open to all. 

And here is an article open to all that explains the technique further. 

Here's how to connect your cellphone or camera to your TV for this technique.
