My new addiction…Wordle! I decided to use this to create gifts for my kids’ teachers and my own students. I started by typing a huge list of adjectives that described the students in my class. I saved this in a Word document so I could pick and choose specific ones for each child from this master list. Then, I went to work on my Wordles! I started by typing the child’s name 2 times (this will make the name bigger than the other words in the wordle).
Next, I cut and pasted words from my master list that described that particular child. When the wordle was created, I changed the colors to match that child’s favorites. Now, I used the snipping tool on my computer to save a snipped copy of the design (this is the only way to save your work in Wordle).
**When snipping your design, be sure to leave a frame around each one otherwise the words close to the edge will be cut off when printed.
When you save your snip, it will save your design as a png file. I struggled to find a site that would print png files!!
I was in luck when I opened a photo account with CVS Pharmacy (enter the coupon code CVSEXPRESS upon checkout for a 20% discount). I printed each wordle as a 4 x 6 photo – 19 cents each plus 20% off! Not a bad deal!!
I bought different photo frames at The Dollar Tree and Walmart and created a personalized gift for each special kiddo for a little over $1!
If you create them for your child's teachers, when typing a name in Wordle, you will need to type the name like this:
Mrs.~Greene or, if your child says "Good at reading" to describe their teacher, it will need to be entered like this: Good~at~reading.
