Word/Tag Clouds

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.
1. Poetry
2. Capturing keypoints
3. Spelling lists
4. Introducing new vocabulary
5. Reflections
6. Mother’s Day/Father’s Day
7. Famous speeches
8. Class rules
9. Ways to say things differently
10. Characters in a book (describing)
11. Artwork reflection – student reflections on a piece of artwork
12. State Reports
13. Classroom Lessons (grammar lessons)
14. Tell me About…
15. Guess the book
16. Book Review
17. Review a Historical Document
18. Information Review
19. Reflect on a holiday or special event

Tagul clouds are not toys and designed to be used on blogs, web pages or any kind of sites as a replacement of ordinary tag clouds. Each tag in Tagul cloud is linked with an URL and is “clickable” that enables visitors to use it for navigation. I can see this being a WAY COOL navigation tool on classroom wikis and blogs.
