Materials: None

How To Play: Everyone gathers in the circle. The It stands in front of an empty chair and says either “wave the ocean right,” or “wave the ocean left.” If she says “right,” the player to the left of the open chair moves to his right into the empty chair and the other players in turn move to her right when the next chair becomes empty. The It then tries to sit in the vacant chair before a waving player does. If successful, she is no longer It and the player who should have moved into the chair is the new It.

Plan for Success: Model and practice moving chairs. Players may not move unless the chair next to them is empty.
