Hi all. Here to share with you another great site called Wordle. This is a terrific site where your possibilities are endless. In a nutshell, you create word clouds, perhaps based on a topic and press go and your words are put into a lovely artful display - you can control how you would like your image to be displayed. For example type in a bunch of words related to a single topic and have the children guess the topic, use Wordle to introduce a new topic of study and see if they can guess the new topic, compare and contrast, character traits - ideas are endless. You can edit the word display through color, layout, and font. Here is a great link to ideas for using Wordle in the classroom. There are many more if you search the net.
