How I Use It
I used it to practice word choice with the 6 traits in writing. Students can enter their text into the text box. What Wordle does is make the most used words the biggest. If a student types in text and the word "like" is in the largest text, then the student knows that like may have been used too often in the text.
I like the visual appeal to Wordle. It can be used in many different ways and the design and colors can be changed to keep the students engaged. It's another tool that can be used to increase writing skills. I do wish my students could use this site on their tablets, but right now they cannot.
