One of the novels that third grade reads is The Year of the Panda by Miriam Schlein. Along with many other enrichment activities that accompany the book, we decided to incorporation the use of technology in order to help our students retell and explain what they have learned from the novel study. Third graders were given the opportunity to create a Wordle project! A Wordle is a visual depiction of words that are found within a given text. The Wordle is created by forming the student’s word choices into a desired image or text. For our project, the students focused on selecting key nouns that help retell the story of The Year of the Panda. The students were so eager to see their words come to life!
