Musical chairs writing. Fun idea! When the music stops you pick up writing where the last person left off. Time intervals baed on grade level...

PP said, "musical chairs reading. Play music and when the music stops students stop, sit down and start reading! Lots of fun and something different to develop reading interests." Perhaps you could also put letters of alphabet on chairs &/or sight words.

Leave it on a day that you don't tell your students you will be absent. Students would love this!! Perfect for the emergency sub plans!
