PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Make vocabulary instruction meaningful and FUN!

Over the years, my implementation of the Word Jar has evolved a little bit, but one thing remains the same. Every single word is kid-generated. Every. Single. Word. After all... I direct enough of our word study. I want my kids to constantly be on the look-out for WOW words as we interact with various texts together and as they navigate stories during independent reading. I want them to pay attention to descriptive language and nuances. I, ultimately, want them to become word collectors. So, as they encounter new, exciting, puzzling, or fun-to-say words, I have them record the words on sticky notes (or templates), then they place them inside of the jar. As we begin class, we take out one word to define, discuss, and record them! It's a great supplemental way to teach vocabulary! Plus it's meaningful and authentic, so that helps the words STICK! Happy collecting!
