Is it time to put on a class or club program? Or are you and your friends in the mood to entertain your folks? Well, try this fun cue-card performance for a change of pace.

Step 1: Pick a famous song or poem; "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" is a good example of what would work for this. Have everyone practice singing the song; playing a record or tape of the song would also work.

Step 2: Illustrate each word or key phrase of the song or poem on large, sturdy pieces of card stock or cardboard. Pass out the cards, and sing or play the song.

Step 3: Each performer should flip up their word each time the word is said or sung. Practice until everyone gets it right.

Step 4: Now speed up the singing to see if the group can keep up. Before you know it, everyone will be giggling!
