Something Really New!

New to me anyway! I just found this cool website. It is http://wordle.net and you can go there and let it create word art from any piece of text you might want to put in. The link below is what it created in just seconds from the text on this blog. All I had to do was type in the URL for this blog and this is the art it came up with. This would be something fun to do with your residents because it gives you the opportunity to print out the resulting art. For example, if your residents have been working on life stories, copy and paste a few paragraphs into the text box at the wordle site and then see what word picture comes back. It would make a really cool cover for the book or scrap book they are writing. I am sure you could find other ways to use it as well. Give it a shot.
