FYI: I love getting a chance to know more about my students and what motivates them! Almost every year I have had the chance to make word clouds using tagxedo.com with the 2nd grade and it's always a favorite activity of mine. They select words that they feel identify them or showcase their talents and interests and then get to customize to make theirs unique. They are pretty cool and look great in our hallways.
This the first year that I have put them up online though, so feel free to view the classes and you can print your students off as well. The 2nd grade students do have a laminated copy they will be bringing home sometime in the near future.
