Third and Fourth Grade

I have known about this tool for some time, but haven't really used it much until now. Wordle is a fun, free Web 2.0 tool for creating word "clouds" from text. The students wrote short pieces about what they thought of third and fourth grade to this point. I copied what they wrote and pasted into Wordle, and this is what was created. The words that are the largest are the words that students used most often.
