Tagxedo is an excellent way for students to express themselves AND learn about their writing style.
I really enjoy using this product with students. It's not as user friendly as I would like, and it does have a small learning curve.

Other than that, it is an engaging learning tool that is free, easy, and can be used for many writing activities. I also like that there is a gallery of Tagxedos created by other users, and it is easy to share Tagxedos with others.Continue reading

Great tool for many cross-curriculum activities
I love this website and have used it with first, second and third graders. The students are very engaged and take great ownership in the creation of their word cloud. It's fun, it's different, and it's easy! I also really like that it is a website and the children can access it from home to create more word clouds of their own.Continue reading
