I teach a hymn class at church to 2nd grade and under.
However it is not very organized, and me and my friend who do it are not too experienced so I was asking if you guys can advise me on how to make the class from fun, interesting, and beneficial. What we basically do is just teach the hymn and give them candy when they're good, and pray "Our father" before and after class.
I basically need ideas, such as activities, games, hymns to teach, maybe stories, teaching methods, wording to use when talking with them, when to reward them, how to make it organized, etc.
We taught them such hymns as:
-amen amen amen ton thanaton
-amen amen amen Your death
-Ni sherobim ceoosht emmok
I hope I can make the class better through your advice. Thanks!
