audio books

I often play audio books during rest. The kids listen better than when I just play music. I've also let quiet resters choose a book to take to their rest spot after 10-15 mins. That positive reward can motivate some. However, looking at books works best with music not audio stories. Soemtimes alternating practices helps, audio story one day, music and books the next. I also make sure that the restless bodies are strategically placed and place myself near the most distruptive. I read, work on lesson plans, etc at a student table.
