The writing jar The preparation for this one is really simple: write individual words on small pieces of paper. Fill the jar as much as you feel necessary with words. You can take this a couple of ways at this point: 1) learners each pick three to five words from the jar, or 2) you pick three to five words from the jar for everyone. The task is simple: learners must use all of the words selected in a quick story or paragraph.
