Wordle in the classroom

Tonight after school I attended a workshop on using Wordle in the classroom. Technology is always so amazing! I'm constantly blown away by new ideas and teaching tools.  Tonight I created one to use tomorrow... We are learning action verbs right now. i plan on having the students color in all of the action verbs. You could also have them color verbs one color and nouns another, etc.....

Wordle can be used many other ways as well....back to school get to know you activity (words to describe them), character traits, vocab words, spelling words, synonyms, write autobiography about themselves...copy and paste into Wordle...compare and contrast themselves with others, etc.


The presenter of the workshop showed ths examples of synonyms
