~Horace Mann Quote
A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on cold iron.

My Wordle

Wordles can be used in a variety of ways in the classroom.  Spelling and vocabulary words can be placed in a wordle.  Parts of speech can be placed in a wordle.  Wordles can be printed as a coloring page and students can be instructed to color only the nouns, or verbs, etc.  Wordles make great Mother's Day gifts.  Students can use the word "Mom" then use as many words as they can to describe or show their appreciation for their mom.  Essays or speeches can be typed into wordle, and wordle will make the most frequent words larger.  This will help students understand the main point of the text.  The same thing can be done with prose and poetry.  The possibilities are endless!!  Try it today at http://www.wordle.net/   Happy Wordling!!!
