Once you have taught this song in two or three different ways, a fun way to “review” it (without the children knowing it is a review) is to put some handbell harmony with the song as they sing. Children take turns playing the handbells while the others sing.
It works best if you make a chart with the color of the bell to be played, and then you point to that color when it is time to play that particular bell.
Those children that are not playing the handbells are singing the verse.
