An example of how to use this product: Wear a Word: Students try to guess a secret word by listening to team members’ definitions.Write vocabulary words on sticky notes or name tag labels. Place one on each child’s forehead (without letting the child see it). Divide the class into teams of five or six students each. On your signal, have team members help one another guess their words by giving definitions. As students guess their words, have them remove the tags from their foreheads. The winner is the first team to guess all of their words.
