This is a color code for the second verse and chorus of Small & Simple Faith.  Each word (not syllable) in the song is represented by a shape.  Different shapes refer to different ideas, different colors refer to first letters.


How to use this code:

Ask the children what they see.  What is the same?  What is different?

Sing through the song.

Ask the children what the images have to do with the song.  Collect answers.  (If they didn't find anything out after one time through, point to the shapes as you sing again.)

Sing through the song 2-3 more times, asking them after each time if they learned anything new about the code.

**Bonus: "Alliteration" (using words that start with the same first letter close together) is a tool that songwriters, poets, and authors use to make their writing flow better and be more memorable.  It's one of Angie's favorite literary devices.  Can you find some examples of alliteration in this song?  (Hint: use the colors to help you see similar sounds.)


Squares: words that refer to us

Stars: words that refer to Jesus

Green: words that start with "F"

Lighter Pink: words that start with "B"
