Generating Wordles with Grade 8 Technology Buddies
Wordles are 'word clouds' and are a great way to capture a lot of information on a subject in an aesthetic way. Today we met with the Grade 8 class to do some partnered technology work. Each kindergarten child shared what he or she loved about school and their Grade 8 buddy used this information to generate a personalized wordle. The Grade 8 prompted the kindergarten child by asking thoughtful questions about school in order to promote reflection and rich oral language.
Here are a few examples of the completed Wordles. It was amazing to review these with the children and see what they loved about school! Copies will be coming home shortly - why don't you consider engaging your child is a discussion about how they created the Wordle and what their favourite parts of school are?
