Making Word Clouds with Wordle and Tagxedo

This week at my blog – Raki’s Rad Resources – I put together a quick tutorial post for two of my favorite websites – Wordle.net and Tagxedo. Both websites are used to make word clouds.  I love to make word clouds with my kids.  They are a great activity to use at the end of a vocabulary unit, or as a way of gathering prior knowledge at the beginning of a unit.  Stop by my blog and see how my kids were able to make these:
