I had each student pull up a blank Wordle.net page. We don't have enough computers for everyone, so some students pulled up two separate webpages and then made them smaller so that both could be seen at the same time. Then they typed their name ten times. We numbered the computers and carouseled around the classroom.
The rules were simple:
- Only use positive words or comments
- YOU cannot say the same thing for each person
- You MAY repeat a word that SOMEBODY else has used (because this will make the word bigger on Wordle)
- Move when the teacher says switch, and do it quietly
Then, everyone played around with the layout, font, and color scheme until they were happy with it, then they printed it. Some of them wanted everyone to sign it, since most of my class didn't buy a yearbook.
We also completed a 5th grade Wordle. Everyone wrote down at least 3 things the liked best about 5th grade. Some of the things they wrote surprised me! Some things were from the first of the year, and some things were quick activities we did as fillers. The class Wordle is below, and I'll post some of the student Wordles soon!
