Marshall Elementary, Oangeburg,SC USA
Materials Required: chairs, flash cards with one word on each card
Activity Time: 15 minutes ( According to the number playing)
Concepts Taught: Students will be able to read words by playing muscial chairs.

You will be playing musical chairs as you normal do, except you
will place a card with a word you are working with on each chair.
The cards will have different words.
When the music stops, the person without a chair tells you which chair
he/she was about to sit in. The person who is seated in that chair has
to pronounce his word. If he is unable to pronounce the word, he will
be out and the standing student will get a chance to pronounce the word.
Both students are out if they pronounce it incorrectly. If one gets it right,
that person will still be in the game.
This really motivates my children in getting their words pronounced
correctly. I learned about this game from a friend who taught with me
for several years. She used it with all types of learning
