  1. What a neat concept! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love Wordle, It is fun and very useful

  3. USE WORDLE for an attractive WORD SPLASH which is a prereading/prelearning activity. You can type in the words from a unit you are about the teach or a story/book you/they are going to read and have students look at the words and brainstorm what they think the unit/story/book is about. They define any of the words they do not know and then talk about the unit/story/book and why each word is important to the topic.
