Musical Books

Grades: All

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.
