Wordle made by First Graders with character trait words generated from the story, portrayed by the main character, Alejandro. Alejandro's Gift by Richard E. Albert. Available at Amazon for .01 & found a Vocabulary PPT for the book online...there is really quite a lot of resources on the Internet for this title. The kids really enjoyed it, it's simple and sweet, no frills or nonsense. I highly recommend it.
I created this Wordle using only letters from the alphabet in three letter string combinations and imported it into a Smartboard Notebook file. The intention was to create a Smartboard literacy center for Kindergarten. After modeling, students would follow these directions:
1. Put a circle around an "m"
2. Put a triangle around an "a"
3. Put a square around an "s"
4. Put a rectangle around an "l"....etc.
A great activity for the first day of school or any day of the year, it's literacy and math.
Really, the Wordle possibilities are endless....leave a comment and let everyone know www.wordle.net how you use Wordle to enhance literacy instruction in your class.
