Autumn Wordle

Observing the changes happening outdoors is something that has been a great interest to the children. We have also been working on building inquiry-specific vocabulary. In an effort to embed some meaningful technology into our circle time, we encouraged the children to participate in a shared writing activity where we used a website called "Wordle" to create a collection of autumn words. 

The children suggested various autumn words and then we generated the wordle together using the website. The more times the word was suggested the bigger it appeared in the wordle.

Many children expressed an interest in creating additional wordles. Here is the website for those of you who would like to try this activity at home. http://www.wordle.net/ If your child creates a wordle, please send it in so we can share and celebrate their writing!
