See Inside: Monster Musical Chairs
(MathStart series)

Below are sample pages from inside Monster Musical Chairs, a MathStart series book written by Stuart Murphy and illustrated by Scott Nash.  The first two sample spreads depict the start of the musical chairs game.

And then the game begins.  As you can see, all six monsters are participating and all six monsters are depicted in the box on the right.  As the game progresses, one monster loses his seat at the end of each round and the total players is one less. Their picture on the left is then crossed out.  This -1 storyline makes this a great book for teaching early subtraction, and would actually be a fun way to lead into an actual game of musical chairs (writing new subtraction equations on the board as each round is completed.)

Where to now?
