In celebration of National Poetry Month, copy and paste the text of three of your favorite poems into a tag cloud generator like Wordle or the new Tagxedo and see what happens. Save your image (4MP size should suffice) and put a copy in the Library’s – Clouds of Poetry Submissions – folder on the school’s shared server (S: drive). Make sure you save the image with a file name that includes your first and last name and grade level so I know who you are (e.g. janesmith9_frostcloud.jpg).
Once you save your file to the share folder, stop by the library to register your entry and note the titles and authors of the three poems you used. Selections will be posted on the library walls near the doorways. A winner will be selected at random to receive a Starbucks gift card. Entry deadline: Friday, May 7th.
Here’s a Tagxedo word cloud created with Express it in Eight quotes by MLWGS students and faculty.
