In my classroom, I like to create a jar of words. I draw a great big jar on chart paper. The students and I work to fill this jar up with descriptive words that make our writing more exciting. I also encourage my students to keep their own personal word jars that they fill with words that they find exciting or meaningful to them. Their jar of words can be kept in the back of a Writer's Notebook in a Writer's Workshop folder.
