Overwhelmed!

This whole idea of creating a blog has got me OVERWHELMED! I want a place to host and share all of my ideas but I haven't quite figured out how to undertake the project! I am working on a few projects that I will post as they come together but today my post will be simple. I LOVE Tagxedo which is a word cloud generator! Wordle is another awesome site and ABCya! has an awesome "kids" site that is super easy to use! It is so simple to use and I plan to use it with students this year whether it be "About Me" at the beginning of the year or to review unit academic vocabulary words, what about synnonyms. What other ideas do you see coming together using a word cloud generator? You can add any words you want which will randomly appear in any shape you choose from or import! One thing I love about it is that it is so user friendly and easy to work with. You can change the theme colors, the orientation of the words and other more specific details. The word cloud is easy to save, share or print which is another great feature! So here  is the word cloud I made today that I hope to frame and have on my desk :)! I found another AWESOME project on pinterest with an old keyboard so I am in the process of getting my hands on an old keyboard and willbe posting that SOON!

    1. The keyboard project turned out AMAZING! It looks perfect hanging outside of my computer lab! I posted about it in my latest update of school but will be linking with Monday Made it too!

      ABCya is awesome, there are so many engaging and fun games. My kids LOVED Math Bingo and many other games. Spelling City is another great site. I used it with my word wall words and spelling lists in first grade. It was great because if you did the big work at once it was such an easy computer center!

      Thanks for stopping by and posting! I will hop over to your blog :)!
