Wordle is a really enjoyable tool which creates you different colourful tables in order to use in your lessons as a teacher.Wordle analyses the text and then It chooses the most frequent words in the text. Everybody can arrange their own wordle’s colours and style of letters according to their choices.

Wordle is useful
To remember the most important vocabulary in the text.
By using most frequent words the learner can understand the text easily.
Teacher can produce a dialogue for the students with these words in order to use them properly in the sentences.
By using these key words learners can recall some points about the texts’ content.
You can omit the other words on the background to find just the most frequent ones.
How Wordle contributes to the lesson;
Teacher distributes hand-outs of these word clouds to the students. Every student has a cloud copy now.
They look at the words and try to guess them ,or find the meanings from dictionary.
After the activities with the unknown words every student presumably can tell something about his/her text.
So they get an idea about the text.
By making prediction they gain control over the text.
My comments about wordle
That is very intresting.
It gives you a new perspective of looking a text.
It’s much easier to digest than reading the whole text.
It’s very creative and easy to use.
Wordle produces intresting and colorful word clouds which converts boring text to attractive tools for students.
As a teacher I am going to use it in my lessons as much as possible.
