Sometimes teaching singing can be like pulling teeth: kids are just not in the mood. Here's a game that never fails to engage kids. If anything, it will get kids arguaing over who gets to sing.
Have one turn her back to the the class and give a pencil, a book, and a toy frog to three volunteer singers. Sing the song:
Who's got the pencil?
(Only child with item)
I got the pencil
Who's got the book
I got the book
Who's got the froggy
I got the froggy
(Chorally) Turn around and look (x2)
The child with back to the back must guess by who has each item.
Steer the lesson towards the conclusion that we are all unique in our voice and when one of us doesn't sing the song is not as awesome.
