The Wonderful Thing About Wordle

Wordle is a fun tool to use. My only difficulties with it was that my first few tries it picked up periods and commas at the end of words so I had to try it a few times to get it right.  This would be a great ‘getting to know you’ tool for a classroom on the first day instead of the usual  strategies (like that list of questions where students have to find a name for every question).  You could have students create their worlde, print it out, and then have them present it to the class.

    I also liked Wordle. It’s a great tool to use with students. I used it for my grade 2 students to describe themselves, and they loved that each one is different just like their personalities. It really let me focus on the uniqueness of each student.
