Arrange chairs in a circle or back-to-back in a straight line, one for each child.
Place a book under each chair.
Every child then sits on a chair.
The children march around the chairs while the teacher plays the music.
When the music stops the children sit down and begin to read the book under their chair.
After a few minutes, start the music again.
After the game has ended, place the books in a special box marked "Musical Books" so that children may later read the rest of the story.
Why it Works:
Generates excitement and encourages students to keep reading and think creatively about the titles of the books they choose to read.
