I was surfing the web today and came across this idea on Projects by Jen. It is called Wordle. It basically uses words and phrases to represent a word. You can use the “Wordle of the Day” from Jen’s website, order pre-made sets of them (4 sets for $10- a great bargain), or create your own using the Wordle website here to create your own or use the hundreds of pre-created ones they have on this site including one representing the U.S. Consitution (great idea for Social Studies)!! What a great way to integrate technology and sneak in little vocabulary!!! I am planning on creating one with my class roster for the first day of school to introduce this activity to m new group of 4th graders!!!
