Using an Interactive Word Cloud as a Christmas Poem or Story Starter

Christmas Poem or Story Inspiration Word Cloud

How to use an interactive word cloud to inspire a Christmas poem, or story writing exercise.

First, project the Christmas Poem Starter interactive word cloud, which I created on the website,  onto a whiteboard and let children in small groups, table groups, pairs, or as individuals select and choose five words to base their poem or story on – they can record their chosen words in their notebook.

There are groups of words included, for example: nativity, celebration, food and decorations so that children should be able to choose a set which is different from other groups.

In case you cannot see the interactive word cloud below here is a link to it on the web.
