Musical Chairs with Flashcards
Get everyone moving and learning with a quick game of Musical Chairs. Set the chairs up as you normally would for the game, only include a chair for every player. Two rows, back to back. Lay a flashcard on each chair. Play the music for a couple of seconds. When it stops, the students sit on a chair. If they are able to respond correctly to the flashcard on their chair they stay in the game. If they don't respond correctly they put their chair away and they are out. You can let the children who are "out" help you with the teacher role in approving or disapproving the flashcard responses. They can also tell the correct answer if someone else gets it wrong. You still have to oversee, of course, but it keeps them involved in the game, even if they make a mistake.
