A word-cloud is typographic artwork, generated by a computer algorythm, based upon a given text. The more times a word is in the text, the larger it appears. I created word clouds for some of the contributed posts to this week’s carnival of homeschooling. I used tagul.com to create these but there are many other free services out there. A quick glance should give you the feel, then read the article to see if it resembles the graphic.

Saron sings a Song for Safety
I share the words to a lovely little song my daughter taught me when she was 4yrs old. She learnt it in playschool as part of the programme to help protect children. It’s fun, catchy, easy to learn and I still find myself humming it. But it tells our children an important message! via Reading-Writing-Learning
