Submitted by: Christine Shenocker, Five Towns College Grad Student
Grade Levels: Pre-K - 2
A fun and exciting way for your students to review what they have recently learned by playing

Materials: Paper, markers, chairs, music
1. Place chairs in a circle.
2. On each chair have a piece of paper with
a different letter, shape, sight word or
vocabulary word that you have just
completed teaching your class.
3. Instruct the children to move from
chair to chair when the music starts.
4. When the music stops, have each child
stop and face the chair they are in front
of. Each child will have a turn to
say what is on the paper and than we play
again (instead of taking away a chair,
the student stops at a different chair
This is a fun way for your students to review what they are learning. I use this review in my
Pre-K class with letters. I call it the ABC Musical Chair Game. The children get excited
to play and this motivates the students to learn the letters that they may have trouble
recognizing by playing and getting help by their peers.
