How to use this game:

1) print out and cut out each line into strips

2) attach the strips to the board out of order

3) ask the children, "what do you see? what you notice? what is the same? what do you wonder?"

4) collect answers, offer praise

5) challenge the children to "crack the code" before you sing through the song 4 times

6) check their work when they are finished


**Extender activity: ask the children what they think the different colors mean, ask them to sing the pink and blue letters when you sing the rest, then switch

**The activity works best for older children who can read after they are somewhat familiar with the song

The Ones Who Mother Me - verse 1 'crack the code'
