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.
