The other day we created a Wordle. A wordle is a “word cloud” made from a bunch of text that is entered into a program that arranges the words into different colors and shapes to make a design. The more times a word appears in the text, the bigger the word gets in a wordle.
We combined our names with the answers that we wrote to these questions:
What word would you use to describe our blog?
What word would you use to describe our classroom?
What word would you use to describe your classmates?
What is the most interesting thing in the classroom?
What is your favorite classroom subject?
What has been your favorite activity so far?
What was your favorite read-aloud book?
What was your favorite field trip?
When we entered all the text into a wordle this is what we got!

As you can see, awesome was written down the most! What other words seem to have been written over and over?
