My kids love the Headbandz Game! We use it to help us learn our new sight words each week!
We choose someone to wear the Headbandz headband and we stick one of our sight word cards in the holder on the front.
The other children then give clues to help them figure out what the word might be. At the beginning of the year, they were allowed to give letter names, but now that we all know most of our letter sounds, they have to only tell the sound that the letter makes.
The kiddos are allowed to tell how many letters are in the word, a word that it rhymes with, someone’s name in our classroom who starts with the same letter, and they can tell if a letter in a certain position is a consonant or a vowel.
I give written clues as the children give oral clues:
“The word has 3 letters”
“One of the letters is the vowel /e/”
“The first two letters together say /sh/”.
We play once or twice a week and we are not tired of it yet! This would be fun as a station or a small group activity too!
