Word Nerd Review

A reader told me about a singing time review activity called WORD NERD.  It’s kind of similar to the popular game Headbands.  Her Primary loves so I thought I’d give it a try this week in singing time.  It’s right up my alley – QUICK and EASY!

 
All you need is a song(s) you are reviewing, a pair of glasses (these goofy sunglasses are from the Dollar store but any will do), a marker and a sticky notepad.  I’ll be reviewing our January – July program songs with this activity.
 

If you have the game headbands, use the headbands found from the game!

A child comes up and puts on the glasses and faces the primary.  You then write one word from your chosen song on a sticky note with a marker and put it on their forehead (hence the name of the activity – they look like a total nerd!).

The primary does not sing that word and the “nerd” child has to guess what word is on their forehead.  Once guessed, switch out the “nerd” with a new one and repeat!

If you are using the Headbands game, simply create some cards that can be slipped in to the slot on the headband.

For Jr. Primary I may tweak it a bit…the “nerd” child will quickly go out in the hall as I read to the primary the word on the sticky note and then when we sing it, the Primary will sing that word very loudly.

This runs very similar to my “Word Quing” (short for king or queen!) which is also fun.  You can find that HERE if you are interested.
