Word Clouds, Vocabulary, and More

Eight Great Sites for Words, Words, and more Words!  Being a word nut, I'm always in search of interesting ways to enhance my student's vocabulary.  For example, we use Visuwords before, during, and after reading to clarify our understanding.  My daughter and I recently used Wordle for her 100's day project (her 100 favorite words).  Word Generation is an unparalleled site for growing rich lexical knowledge within your middle school.  These sites and more are free and fantastic!

  1. Love this post. I actually have a post-it on my laptop reminding me to make a similar page for my website. I may forgo it and link to yours. Also - have you seen http://www.etymonline.com/ - WOW, love this site. It gives "explanations of what our words meant and how they sounded 600 or 2,000 years ago." A great site for people who like latin and greek roots.
