Kindness Cloud

 

kindness-cloudAnother slice of life and I am working with the students on their blogs, using word clouds with their OLWs. This is a terrific lesson for synonyms. But with different levels of ability and some tech difficulties, it ended up taking the whole class to implement – and still a couple didn’t finish.  March is getting ever closer and I want therm to be ready to blog everyday …

    Great idea to do a word cloud! We made a class Slides presentation for our OLW. My third graders will also be blogging in the March SOLSC!

  5. What a fun project! Have you, by chance, read the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio? The slogan “Choose kind” came to mind when I saw your wordle. Empathy is such a vital thing to teach – adults sometimes need it more than the kids!
