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.
How I Use It
First graders used it for their unit on poems, third graders made Mother's Day cards with their images and second graders are not creating their "What I Am Thankful For" word clouds. They love it! I am looking forward to our Cinderella unit, and using with the students to compare and contrast different versions of the fairy tale.
