10 Word Cloud Generators You Have Probably Never Tried

10 Word Cloud Generators You Have Probably Never Tried
A few days back, we looked at five great ways to incorporate word cloud generators into your classroom. There are obviously many more uses out there for them – but that is a discussion for another post. We’ve mentioned most of these before – in a post from way back when – so I won’t go into too much detail about each individual one, but we’ve added a few notable ones to the list. (Of note, the list is in no particular order). The vast majority of them work the same: plug your text into the box, select a few options, and you’ve got yourself a word cloud. Some offer more options than others, some offer word clouds with words going in any and all directions, some offer shapes, others create much simpler word clouds. If you do a quick search for word cloud, you’ll see so many different types. Do you have a favorite word cloud generator from the list below?

While I'm away I will be re-running the most popular posts of the year. This was the second most popular post in April, 2014. As the end of the school year approaches you may be looking for a good way for students to organize and share examples of their best work of the school year. If your students have blogs or wikis that they have maintained all year then all they need to do is move their best examples to the front page.

Printable letters: Letters activities: B We’ve all heard of that magical child who comes out of the womb reading, but the reality is that reading readiness starts at a young age. Simply exposing your child to letters as part of a fun coloring activity can help them to learn some of the building blocks they’ll need to read. Educators remind us time and again that parents are their child’s first teacher. 50 awesome posters that encourage to read This list includes most wonderful posters that are serving one simple task: they encourage to read. Everyone agrees not enough is being done to encourage people to read. Those who can read don’t realize how lucky they are, having in mind that almost 20% of world population is still illiterate. Sometimes, a little reminder can do wonders to make someone put away the computer and reach for the e-reader or a printed book. We list most beautiful wonder-making artworks below.

The Comprehensible Classroom Over the last year, I have received many email requests from teachers, administrators, and conference planners that need to know how TPRS® and other Comprehensible Input strategies meet Common Core standards. Teachers must explain the connections so that they are permitted to use these best practice strategies in their classrooms, administrators seek to know whether or not to approve their teachers’ proposed instructional methods, and conference planners must defend their offerings in order for conference attendees to receive funding from the institutions that they represent. All of this pressure has created much stress for all parties involved, but when we take a moment to examine TPRS®/CI through the lens of the Common Core Standards, we quickly see that there is absolutely no reason to freak out! One of the beautiful things about TPRS® is that it has been meeting Common Core Standards since before the standards existed.

Help Little Bo Peep find her lost sheep and dance them around the screen together in time to the music. Guide Jack and Jill up and down the hill and march with Grand Old Duke of York.

Register To Start Learning Print Custom Sticky Notes with Google Slides Post-it and other brands of sticky notes are put to good use everyday by teachers and students. The Post-it website has a page filled with resources for teachers, and they have a really cool iOS app for digitizing, sorting, and sharing square sticky notes. Those small pieces of paper that can be attached, easily removed, and repositioned can be even more useful when you print on them. While there is a printer designed to print sticky notes, you can send sticky notes through the printer you already have. You’ll need a template for printing, and I just so happen to have one for you.
