This week we will be using all the wonderful words and phrases we thought of to create our own firework poems. Later in the week will use these websites to create shape poems and acrostics. If you click on the images it will link you to the websites.
Wordle – type in the words you want to use. If you want the word to be big, then type it more times or copy and paste it in. If you want several words to stay together the put ~ between the words. You can select different fonts and colour ways.
Tagxedo – is similar to Wordle, but you can choose a shape for you words.
We are going to be learning about Acrostic poems. This is the website we will use to help us present our ideas.
I’m sure you will enjoy using these websites. You can use Wordle and Tagxedoto create lots of amazing word pictures.(These sites need Flash and Tagxedo needs Silverlight, so if they don’t work have a word with Mum and Dad.)
