Post Wordle
You guys just have to have a go at this site. Basically it creates word clouds using words of text you have cut and pasted into its text box. The more a word appears in the submit text box, the larger the word will be in the final wordle. There are controls for colours, text directions, fonts...

http://www.wordle.net/

Here's one I did for my DGD's 4th birthday that I'll use on her birthday pages (just not sure how as yet).

Wordle is shared as a Creative Commons app so you could use the output for S4H use and you can sure have a lot of fun for your own pages.

I discovered by accident that if you double click on the cloud, the words turn into outline instead. Then you can print it off and give it to a kid to colour in. I did a couple for the classes at school so if they are ever well and truly caught up, they can have a reward - they love them.

It might be fun to scan in one that a child has coloured in and use that in a layout.

I love Wordle! It's so easy to export as a .pdf and import into PSE or Photoshop.

I was so excited about the wordle idea, that I decided to teach it to my students at school (grades 3-5). Well of course, the site is blocked from the school computer.
So, I decided to think, think, think, and figured out how to do this in microsoft word, and the WA area.
The kids are having a blast. Hope to share a few examples next week.
