Word Nerd Review


This simple word nerd review singing time activity will have your primary kids vying to be the nerd!  But to be the word nerd, they will need to know the words to the primary songs!

Camille's Primary Ideas: Word Nerd Review (similar to the game Headbands)

Pull this review activity in a pinch!  All you need is a list of song(s) to review, a pair of glasses (and these are even optional!), something to write with a sticky notepad.  I’ll be reviewing our January – July program songs with this activity.

Songs To Review

Here are a few ideas of songs to review:

  • Primary program songs
  • Suggested songs for the month from Come Follow Me (find more details HERE)
  • Seasonal songs (look up “seasons” in the Topic section of the Children’s Songbook HERE)

Word Nerd Activity

Have a child come up and put on the glasses and face the primary.  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!).

As the primary sings the song, they do not sing that word and the “nerd” child has to guess what word is on their forehead.  Once guessed, switch out the “nerd” and a new word and repeat!

TIP: For For younger primaries, have the “nerd” child go out in the hall.  Read to the primary the word on the sticky note.  Sing that word word very loudly to help the child easily guess the word.


  • Try using the headbands from the game Headbands to place words in
