Web 2.0 Literacy Tools - Wordle

Wordle made by First Graders with character trait words generated from the story, portrayed by the main character, Alejandro.  Alejandro's Gift by Richard E. Albert.  Available at Amazon for .01 & found a Vocabulary PPT for the book online...there is really quite a lot of resources on the Internet for this title.  The kids really enjoyed it, it's simple and sweet, no frills or nonsense.  I highly recommend it. 

 I created this Wordle using only letters from the alphabet in three letter string combinations and imported it into a Smartboard Notebook file.  The intention was to create a Smartboard literacy center for Kindergarten.  After modeling, students would follow these directions:
1. Put a circle around an "m"
2. Put a triangle around an "a"
3. Put a square around an "s"
4. Put a rectangle around an "l"....etc.

 A great activity for the first day of school or any day of the year, it's literacy and math.  

Really, the Wordle possibilities are endless....leave a comment and let everyone know www.wordle.net how you use Wordle to enhance literacy instruction in your class.
