We sorted the words together into the appropriate nests, discussing why a certain word might fit better in one spot versus another. Finally, I helped her glue all the thing/noun words to the jar itself and all the action/verb words to the lid. So now she has, not only a great reminder of the theme for this week, but also a jar covered in bird-related words which she can use as story starters, science review (explaining to people how a word relates to the bird theme), or spelling help when writing about birds in her story journal! :)
P.S. For slightly older students, you might discuss the value of the noun and verb relationship. You might point out how a lid without a jar or a jar without a lid would not be be as helpful as the two combined together. So, a noun without a verb or vice versa just doesn't have as much use as when they work together to create a sentence.
