Words in Collage Form

I like to "make" artwork with technology, because as my students can tell you, my hand drawn pictures never quite look the way they should. One site that lets you do wonderful collages with words is Tagxedo. It is a great way to express your words both in writing and through shapes. You can then save the image and use it in your students' writing, frames, displays, etc. If you go on over to Ms. Jessica's blog, A Turn to Learn, she has step -by-step directions (and lots of other great resources and ideas) that are very easy to follow if you are a little nervous to try. The best part is, even if you do make a mistake, you can start all over again.;)
Here is a sample of mine:


How would you use it in your classroom?

  1. I'm going to use it to make a collage of all my students' names for the first day of school! My students also use it as a word work activity.

  2. I also saw it framed in a really cute crayon frame on another bloggers page. I don't recall who, but I am going to definitely borrow the idea.

Children...

By Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D.

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.
If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.
If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.
If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.
