Beautiful Wordle Essays

Some of you may remember the essay my husband wrote last year about the naming of our daughter. A few months ago, he sent me the same essay in a different format. I've tweaked it a little more and would like to share it with you. Just click on the image above to see it larger. I would love to have this printed in color so I can frame it and hang in my daughter's room.

Some fun things to turn into a Wordle might be
  • A list of your students for classroom teachers,
  • Your favorite quote,
  • A Psalm from the Bible,
  • The names of all of your family members,
  • A famous speech,
  • The text of your child's favorite poem, or
  • Random news stories.
If you make your own Wordle, let me know so I can come check it out. It is a lot of fun to play with all of the different options. Among other things, you can change the colors, word orientation, font, background color, and even put the words in alphabetical order.


  1. I love wordle ...I have apost in draft - but the picture was too small in preview ?
    How did you get it to go large ?

    I wonder if you can get it printed ?

    Charlotte is a beautiful name.

  2. Trish - I used the html code they gave me to make it this size on my post. It included the link to their website where it could be viewed larger.

    I don't have a very high quality printer, so it looks yucky at my house. I need to find someone with a good, color laser printer.

  3. I can print it mine...very high guality! Just let me know what you need to me to do to print it :)
