So when swimming all day, every day loses its appeal, you could check with the local YMCA and Chamber of Commerce to see what activities are on the schedule. I've included some websites below that have tons of ideas; everything from puzzles to making crafts and even some cooking.

To find out the latest news or maybe need to report a problem, just click on the Community tab. You can read and share comments or check out the FAQs. If you have an idea for a feature that might make WordItOut even better, send in your suggestion under the Ideas button. I really like the fact that they are open to suggestions that might make their program work better for the end user.
A fun, end-of-the-year project would be to have the students help design a word cloud of things they have learned and then put it on a t-shirt or bag. WordItOut has a great feature to create and purchase customized gift items. What a way to share what is going on in your classroom! Check it out in the Community section.
Here are some other resources and links for ideas and uses of WordItOut and word clouds:
- WSFCS wiki - Vocabulary Teaching Tools livebinder
- blog - Free Technology 4 Teachers
- Twitter - WordItOut on Twitter
- I suggest giving WordItOut a try with your next lesson and see how your words look in the clouds.
