The Word Jar is an idea from this book:
I love this idea! Write words on little pieces of paper and collect them in a jar. They can be new words or old words, big words or little words. You can find them in old magazines, books you are reading, or words you hear. The words can be collected in a real jar or a “paper” jar.
Take the words out and let the fun begin! Make up stories, draw pictures, create poetry, spell them backwards, combine them to make up your own words. I need a Word Jar in my vision therapy room. Price of admission: 1 word.
