Musical Chairs – Pass any object around the circle. It could be an object related to the lesson or verse or just a ball. Whoever has the object when the music stops must answer a review question. To make this more interesting can give a small piece of candy if they get it right – like smarties. If you keep landing on the same person, have that person pick someone, or the person who answered can become the music operator. Remember the music operator cannot watch the circle. This keeps them from predetermining where the object stops. Also warn students that anyone not passing the object in a sportsmanlike manner will have to sit out of the game.
Green Light, Go – Lay one red, yellow, and green blanket or tablecloth or large piece of paper on the ground side by side. Yellow in the middle like a stop light. To start all children are on yellow. Another way to lay this out is to take masking tape and make three divisions on the floor and simply put a circle of construction paper of the proper color and place it at the top. You can have multiple choice review questions and say Number 1 is red, etc. or you can have true false review questions and have them get on red if it is false, green if true, yellow means I don’t know.
A, B C Chairs – Put three chairs in the front of the room. Label them with construction paper A, B, C. Pick a child. Read a multiple choice question. They must sit in the proper chair of what they think the answer is. This child may pick the next participant.
