Ollie, I love Wordle!! What an excellent way to "re-present" text.

I used wordle to start my kids off BEFORE we read the poem I was going to do. They thought it was about kids shopping and were intrigued when they discovered it was in fact Brown Paper Carrier Bag about a bomb attack. It made them WANT to carry on and I got some of the best essays yet from them. I really liked the presentation - wish we'd has similar when I was at uni three years back. I knew more than the guy presenting! Could I possibly have a copy to show a few kindred souls as we prepare similar things for whole school staff meetings prior to getting them to realise what GLOW can do for them? We asked the kids for comments last week and got a beauty - 'If teachers with Smartboards don't use them then they should give them to teachers who will!" Hear hear kids!

Cheers from Elgin!
